Interior designer, Erin Gilbert can’t help but fall in love at first sight with her newest design job – a delightful little bungalow set on a quiet street.
Until she steps inside.
What looks neat and tidy as a postcard from the outside, looks like Hurricane Clutter on the inside! It seems the bungalow’s eccentric owner, widow Helen Walker, hasn’t thrown a thing out since 1942. Newspapers are piled high, almost reaching the ceiling, bric-a-brac covers every surface – there’s barely any space to walk from room to room!
What’s worse – two strange deaths in the area link back to Helen, convincing her that a serial killer is on the prowl – and every nosy friend or neighbor looks like a suspect!
But Erin is never one to back down from a challenge – even if she has to dig her way out; she vows to bring this beautiful home back to life – especially when her annoyingly handsome competitor, Steve Sullivan, barges in on the mess.
Once Erin realizes that there is, indeed, some method to her client’s madness – she knows she’s going to have to dig deep to find a clue to the killer...lest she find another dead body!
