(From the publisher):
When the ever-caustic Mrs. Roxie Malloy tearfully leaves her employ, Ellie Haskell is forced to find another cleaning person, who can at least aspire to taking Mrs. Malloy's place. In the meantime, however, she's overcome with spring-cleaning fever and turns the household at Merlin's Court topsy-turvy. But when members of the Chitterton Fells Charswomen's Association (C.F.C.W.A.) start biting the dust, Ellie swaps scrubbing for sleuthing to find out what dark secrets have been swept under the carpet.
With the help of her husband Ben, her feckless cousin Freddy, and an assortment of homemade cleaning solutions, Ellie joins the C.F.C.W.A. and embarks on a brief stint cleaning her neighbors' houses - just long enough to snoop through their things and find out which one has more than dust bunnies and dirty dishes to hide...
