Elinor wants to help her hospitalized mother by decluttering the hoarded family home. Yet her mom is furious over Elinor touching her possessions. Elinor's bossy elder sister insists there must be a slow and careful sort, but a hunky county inspector threatens a court summons unless Elinor dumps the junk in a hurry.

What should Elinor do, when family secrets, surprises on the doorstep, and a rocky romance complicate the daunting task of cleaning her house?

College professor Elinor Goggin hasn't returned to spend a summer in Coopersville, West Virginia in twenty-five years, but this July she's trying to help her mother by decluttering the hoarded family home. Her mom, always critical of her youngest child, doesn't want Elinor to handle her overflowing collection of random possessions.

When county inspector Race Ericson threatens a court summons if the hoard isn't massively reduced in a hurry, Elinor faces a dilemma. Surrender to her mother's insistence that she do nothing, obey her bossy elder sister's edict that she sort carefully through every single pile (her sister conned her into taking on the impossible job), or satisfy Race's demand that she ruthlessly clear out the junk?

Elinor has never been shy with attractive men. Satisfying Race would be a pleasure. But when family secrets come to light and multiple surprises turn up on her doorstep, Elinor's task gets complicated, forcing her to reevaluate her long-held beliefs about her family--and her life choices.

Cleaning Her House is a warm, stand-alone women's fiction novel featuring a rich variety of characters, a romance with a hint of steam, family secrets, and a ton of clutter. There's a happy ending, too. (Maybe not for the clutter.)
