Review; Carpet Diem (A Tallie Graver Mystery #4) by Misty Simon

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery Carpet Diem (A Tallie Graver Mystery #4) by Misty Simon through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterward, but I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
Live and let dust . . .

Now that Tallie Graver’s cleaning business is starting to shine, she’s ready to go squeegee to squeegee against Audra McNeal for a major contract at the Astercromb mansion. Tallie’s not afraid of a little friendly competition from the new cleaner in town. In fact, Tallie likes Audra, though she wonders how her glamorous rival manages to clean house and maintain her fancy manicure. Tallie has her rubber-gloves full staying one step ahead of her nemesis. Until she finds a well-polished hand poking out of a rolled-up carpet, rendering her competition . . . dead.

Though it lands Tallie the big job, there’s nothing tidy about Audra’s death. So between polishing and scrubbing, Tallie’s determined to find the killer. Hopefully the police chief doesn’t mind her cluttering up his investigation with the filthy dealings she discovers. Turns out Audra was not as squeaky clean as she appeared. And confronting her killer could bring Tallie to a very foul end indeed . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Carpet Diem is an entertaining and fun cosy mystery. Tallie has a bit of spunk, which I enjoyed (in addition to a couple of cute fourlegged friends). The plot has a nice pace with a few twists, turns and red herrings to make it more interesting.
