Item Description...
Overview
Secretly hiding a stash of clutter in a nearby storage facility, domestic diva Mary Alice is urged by her clubmates to dispose of the personal effects of her missing estranged father, only to discover memorabilia that raises questions about his life and death. By the author of Dying to Decorate. Original.

Publishers Description

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.
Includes fun, easy, and tantalizing recipes

A "Hip" Trip to the '60s and Yummy Recipes  Jan 24, 2008
"Crime and Clutter" by Cyndy Salzmann is loaded with great recipes for everything from air freshener to sparkling juice to Mexican delights. I can't wait to make the Fruit Cocktail Cake! The recipes relate directly to what the characters in the story are doing/eating at the time. The story of Mary Alice's inheritance of a 1963 Volkswagon Minibus develops a bit slowly, but the characters are diverse and likable. Cyndy beautifully takes the reader from present to past and back again, weaving a story that keeps you interested by not revealing too much too soon. This was a very "hip" trip back to the `60s. I will definitely read this talented author's other work.
 
Sixties reviewed and recipes mentioned  Dec 10, 2007
Mary Alice is a member of FAC - Friday Afternoon club. Dear friends from this group take it upon themselves to help Mary Alice with the overwhelming task of sorting through and cleaning out a storage unit that was left to Mary by her lost father.

Mary let it slip at a meeting one day that she was late paying on a storage unit that belonged to her late father. All the ladies stopped talking and gave Mary Alice their full attention. Father passed away? Why hadn't she mentioned this before? What is in that unit that she keeps paying for it each month? Why hasn't she looked at it sooner?

The FAC club takes on this mission to help Mary Alice face her father's past thru the stuff in the storage unit. As they enter the unit they discover a 1963 Volkswagen mini bus, tattered letters and other personal items from her fathers mysterious past. What does all this mean?

Review:Cyndy does a great job revealing history from the 60's thru Mary Alice's father's past. The 60's were such turbulent times and the people were free thinkers. I love how she captures the mind set of the Hippies. She is great about showing the who, what, where and how they lived. It was very fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Some of the choices the people made in the story broke my heart when you see the cost they had to pay for those choices. I also rejoiced for the characters for the redemptive power of forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

Another thing I LOVE about this book are the many recipes spread out throughout the chapters. They look so yummy. There are 26 in all. They are indexed in the back of the book for easy access. I definitely want to try the Fried Twinkie recipe. (Oh, did I say that out loud!!! J ) This book was so much fun reading and then the fun continues as you make the food afterwards. What are you waiting for? Dig in!

Charming escapism!  Oct 8, 2007
I so enjoyed reading Cyndy's cozy mystery, CRIME & CLUTTER, the second in the series. The first one was really a great read, and this one was even better. She did a great job of bringing the sixties to life. Denny and Ali's story was compelling--though at first, I didn't want to leave the present day setting with the Friday Afternoon Club friends. But once I was introduced to Denny and Ali, I HAD to see what was happening in the commune!

The writing was creative, sprinkled with Salzmann's sense of humor, and lovely phrases like "fragile tendrils of dust" that made me wish I'd written them myself. Add in an abundance of tantalizing recipes and you have a treasure that is delicious in every way.

A Fun Romp Through the Sixties  Aug 20, 2007
Liz Harris and her Friday Afternoon Club take us back to the 60's in hilarious fashion as they wend their way through the mysterious past (and identity) of one of their own. Good eats (with recipes) are as much a part of who each of the FAC members is as is the diversity of personalities.

Cyndy Salzmann has another winner here. Without violence, gore, gratuitous sex or preaching, she leads us back to a time of war, peace marches, civil disobedience--not to mention free love, free sex, and drugs--that many of us lived through but didn't quite understand.

Crime and Clutter is part history lesson and part psychology 101, but mostly a tale of friendship and honor, forgiveness and redemption.
