Closet Confidential by Mary Jane Maffini is the fourth book in the “Charlotte Adams” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), July 2010
Charlotte’s latest client is a real beaut. Lorelei Beauchamp is the image of the international Face It line of cosmetics and a lifelong acquaintance of Charlotte’s. She’s also a client that comes with a cleanup job a bit grittier than it first appears. Her hidden agenda? The model’s daughter was recently killed in a freak construction accident—and Lorelei’s convinced it was murder. There’s scarce evidence to prove her hunch, but Charlotte can’t say no. Because she knows better than anyone that if you want to find something, you have to get your house—and your suspects—in order.
This was an enjoyable read. Two separate requests to look into a possible murder and for a wayward husband and soon the clues points to a possible connection. I love how this story was woven in and out of the two scenarios and kept me on my toes. There were plenty of twists and turns that kept me turning the pages until the last sentence. My rating: 4.5 stars
