Address To Die For
by Mary Feliz
Right off the bat, I enjoyed the tempo of author Mary Feliz’s writing. No wasted words or dragging scenes. Just a fast paced story both well written, and thought out.
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
The author did a great job with the characters and setting you can easily imagine you are a part of the story.
Ms. Feliz’s writing style is engaging and made for a most enjoyable read.
With fresh new characters and a strong story, you won’t be able to put this one down.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Be sure and get yourself comfortable as you read this hard to put down book.
The plot was interesting and developed at an even pace, with a few unexpected twists leading up to the story’s resolution. All in all, a nice light read.

I thought this book had some really interesting characters and it was different from other cozies I have read…
Rich in detail and vivid descriptions, the story takes place in the small town of Orchard Valley, in the hills above Silicon Valley. This captivating and fast-paced whodunit tale has enough quirky characters, witty humor, drama, intriguing twists and turns, and conspiracy theories that will keep you guessing.
~Jersey Girl Book Reviews
I thought this was a well written book with a good plot. It kept me turning pages and guessing up until the end.

This was a great cozy mystery and fans of many other cozy series will find themselves enjoying this series as well.
For professional organizer Maggie McDonald, moving her family into a new home should be the perfect organizational challenge. But murder was definitely not on the to-do list . . .
Maggie McDonald has a penchant for order that isn’t confined to her clients’ closets, kitchens, and sock drawers. As she lays out her plan to transfer her family to the hundred-year-old house her husband, Max, has inherited in the hills above Silicon Valley, she has every expectation for their new life to fall neatly into place. But as the family bounces up the driveway of their new home, she’s shocked to discover the house’s dilapidated condition. When her husband finds the caretaker face-down in their new basement, it’s the detectives who end up moving in. What a mess! While the investigation unravels and the family camps out in a barn, a killer remains at large—exactly the sort of loose end Maggie can’t help but clean up . . .
About The Author
Mary Feliz has lived in five states and two countries but calls Silicon Valley home. Traveling to other areas of the United States, she’s frequently reminded that what seems normal in the high-tech heartland can seem decidedly odd to the rest of the country. A big fan of irony, serendipity, diversity, and quirky intelligence tempered with gentle humor, Mary strives to bring these elements into her writing, although her characters tend to take these elements to a whole new level. She’s a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and National Association of Professional Organizers. Mary is a Smith College graduate with a degree in Sociology. She lives in Northern California with her husband, near the homes of their two adult offspring. Visit Mary online at MaryFeliz.com, or follow her on Twitter @MaryFelizAuthor.
FTC Disclosure: I received a free NetGalley of this book in exchange for an honest review.
My thoughts: This is the first book in a new series by Mary Feliz. It’s going to be a winner with readers.
There were many things I liked about this book: the setting, the beautiful old home, the organizational tips, the characters, the pets and of course Maggie herself. Maggie is a well rounded character and very likable. I would love to have her come organize my life.
The mystery is very well written with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing until the end. I was surprised at the solution, but it did make sense. I won’t give any hints as I don’t want to spoil it for you. It has been a busy reading summer for me and this makes the list of the top five books I’ve read this summer and the top two mysteries. I’m anxious to read about Maggie’s next adventure.
