Bio: Cyndy Salzmann, the busy mother of three teenagers, began writing in 1997 as a way of avoiding doing the laundry. Her first books—Making Your Home a Haven: Strategies for the Domestically Challenged; The Occasional Cook; Strategies for Overcommitted Families; and Beyond Groundhogs and Gobblers: Putting Meaning into Your Holidays—led to a speaking career at women’s events across the country. Her latest, Crime and Clutter, is a follow-up to her debut mystery, Dying To Decorate.

Book Blurb:

A storage unit, a 1963 Volkswagen minibus, and tattered letters…reveal shattering secrets from the ’60s.

It’s been a year since Mary Alice lost her father — the father she never really knew. Now she’s stuck cleaning out his rubbish from a storage unit. Just when she’d rather it all go away from her well-ordered life, her long-held secret is discovered by the feisty Marina, one of the six members of the Friday Afternoon Club.

When these friends make it their mission to help Mary Alice tackle her stash, they arrive at the storage unit, prepared to clean. But what they discover takes them on a riotous ride through the crime and clutter of the sixties, the angst and betrayal of those caught in The Revolution, and the forgiveness that can only come through acceptance of a different kind of Cause.
