Death Loves a Messy Desk by Mary Jane Maffini is the third book in the “Charlotte Adams” cozy mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), May 2009

Nothing makes Charlotte happier than freeing people from clutter – and now she boasts a long waiting list of sloppy clients.  Her precious free time has been taken up solving the fatally untidy cases she stumbles upon. Her latest task: Fredelle Newhouse has hired her to organize a coworker’s hopelessly cluttered desk.  But when the woman behind the mess goes missing, workplace tempers rise and the occasional stapler files.  Now, Charlotte must open a brand-new folder – one she hopes won’t be field under M for murder.

This was a fast and enjoyable read.  My rating: 3.5
