I would not be surprised if this was the last book in this series. Too many loose ends were tied up to lead to more than one or two more books.

And that was the downfall of this book. There was so much going on that it was sometimes difficult to follow. The main character got way to wrapped up in her ex-husband. Sure, there was a good reason for her to be thinking about him, but there was a lot of focus on a character that the main character never actually talks to. I will say that the murders and how they were solved was very interesting. They were just so far removed from the focus of the book that I couldn't walk away from the book truly satisfied.

Helen's latest dead end job is at the Full Moon Hotel as a maid. Another maid is murdered and Helen finds her in a dumpster. Oh, and her ex husband, Rob, has managed to find out what city she lives in and is tracking her through past jobs. He manages to check in to the very hotel where she is working. But don't worry! Margery will fix all of that!

Helen's dead end job is a maid in a Florida hotel where the guests seem to try to out do each other in trashing their rooms and none of the maids want to be assigned to clean the honeymoon suite. But while Helen is busy cleaning, the other hotel staff members are doing strange things like unpotting palms and unscrewing air vent covers. Between trying to figure out why her co-workers are being so weird and the dead body she finds, Helen is also avoiding her money hungry, adulterous ex-husband and the police who are suspicious of her finding the body. Helen's faithful boy friend, slightly strange neighbors and landlady are there as usual to help her. A fun read in the series.

Has Helen found her last dead end job in FL? As a maid in a hotel, she is invisible to most. Helen believes she has started a chain reaction of murder and this time she may not be able to stay hidden.

Not a bad read. Started to drag at some points.
