A devoted wife and mother of three, Lois Meade cleans houses in the quaint village of Long Farnden. When a local spinster is murdered, Lois finds herself poking around her clients' houses for clues. But her quest for the killer will uncover some surprising secrets about this seemingly peaceful village-and put her family in mortal danger.
Working-class mum and housecleaner Lois Meade plies her sleuthing skills once again after discovering a dead body—dressed in a suit of armor—in a chapel.
It's all smiles for the series that sweeps up sales-every day of the week.
Working mum and owner of a cleaning business, Lois has just hired on the daughter of the Abrahams, an eccentric, reclusive family. But when strange letters and omens put everyone on edge, Lois wonders if the rumors about the Abrahams are the key to a terrible secret.
A friend has asked working-class mother and housecleaner Lois Meade to help crack a case. It looks like the handsome new choirmaster may have been poisoned. Soon, Lois finds herself untangling a web of secrets, bigotry, and intrigue-and can't let the culprits get away clean.
To her own credit, Lois's cleaning business is really starting to clean up. So much that she decides to open up a new office in the neighboring town of Tresham, where she takes note of an unusually busy—and slightly sinister—storefront across the street. But business quickly mixes with Lois's nose for sleuthing when she's hired to clean the house of the pompous mayor, and then witnesses his honor's limo picking up a dubious-looking...
Lois usually steers clear of local gossip, but after tidying up the house that newcomer Reg Abthorpe claims to have inherited, she has more suspicions than she can keep to herself. The home's previous resident was known for his beloved terrier, robust nature, and deficiency of living relatives. So why is Reg presenting himself as the old man's nephew-and where could the sprightly geriatric (and his dog) possibly have gone?
It may be the day of rest, but Lois Meade finds that not everyone believes in keeping it holy.
A rash of strange occurrences in and around Long Farnden has Lois unsettled. Someone?s been stealing valuable tack from the equestrian set, and then a local n?er-do-well is killed when a horse bolts in front of his van. With a new employee on her hands who may or may not be trustworthy, Lois hardly knows what to make of the disturbances, but
The tenants of Lois Meade's terrace house in Tresham are frustrated by their neighbor's feisty pet cockerel, Satan. His owner, Clem Fitch, refuses to part with his feathery companion-making Lois's tenants fly the coop. Luckily, her son Douglas agrees to rent the house.
But when Clem and Satan are found dead, Douglas-who is involved with Clem's daughter-becomes a prime suspect in some foul business.
She's worked through all the days of the week, scrubbing up both messes and murderers in the village of Long Farnden. But crime is a persistent stain, and when Lois's daughter's boyfriend is left for dead in a ditch, Lois must find a twisted path that leads to arson, local delinquents, secret assignments, and blackmail-before she can discover who's been tinkering with the truth.
