"In this Bay Area cozy, a body in the freezer and a friend in jail throw a professional organizer's life into disarray. With concern and compassion, Feliz has Maggie delve into the problems of homeless, poor, and immigrant populations. Yet inspite of societal concerns and murder, the tone of this well-written book is hopeful, occasionally playful. Feliz writes confidently, having done herhomework on such things as immigration legal issues.
Feliz again delivers a well-written, immensely likable story that can stand alone, although readers will want to read previous books in the series."
Praise for Address to Die For, the first book in the Maggie McDonald Mystery Series.
"Feliz is strong with characterization...Details are endearing."
"A skillful amateur detective with an impressive to-do list emerges in this inventive series opener."

Maggie McDonald is a smart woman with leadership skills. Her super power is organizing the lives, closets, and kitchens of others. But like the proverbial shoemaker's children, getting her own life under control is a different story, especially when she stumbles on a dead body. A newcomer, she's determined to adapt to life in her adopted hometown, but she can't do that unless she's sure her family will be safe. And how can they be safe with a murderer running free? Accompanied by her golden retriever Belle, and using every skill in her repertoire, she organizes the clues to a puzzle only she can solve.
The book takes place in a fictionalized compilation of Silicon Valley locales. It is a 'cozy' mystery in the tradition of Agatha Christie. Cozies are a subgenre of traditional mysteries once described as tales in which "someone dies but no one gets hurt."
