A Witch Before Dying by Heather Blake
In my opinion, Heather Blake is one of the top five cozy mystery writers around. She also writes under the name of Heather Webber and her gardening series is one of the first series I read. The thing I like about cozies is that they are easy reading, fun, there's always a hunky guy, and, because they are quick reads, it's okay to can put them down and actually do other things.
In this episode, Elodie Keaton hires Darcy to clean her missing mother’s home (can you say hoarder) and sort the good from the bad so Elodie can sell. Unfortunately, on the first day she's there Patrice's body is found inside a suitcase and beneath piles of old newspapers and stuff. As the police investigate, Darcy is attacked and stalked by persons unknown.
