About this book:
In the humorous, heartfelt new novel by the author of The Next Thing on My List, a personal organizer must somehow convince a reclusive artist to give up her hoarding ways and let go of the stuff she’s hung on to for decades.
Lucy Bloom is broke, freshly dumped by her boyfriend, and forced to sell her house to send her nineteen-year-old son to drug rehab. Although she’s lost it all, she’s determined to start over. So when she’s offered a high-paying gig helping clear the clutter from the home of reclusive and eccentric painter Marva Meier Rios, Lucy grabs it. Armed with the organizing expertise she gained while writing her book, Things Are Not People, and fueled by a burning desire to get her life back on track, Lucy rolls up her sleeves to take on the mess that fills every room of Marva’s huge home. Lucy soon learns that the real challenge may be taking on Marva, who seems to love the objects in her home too much to let go of any of them.
While trying to stay on course toward a strict deadline and with an ex-boyfriend back in the picture, a new romance on the scene, and her son’s rehab not going as planned, Lucy discovers that Marva isn’t just hoarding, she is also hiding a big secret. The two form an unlikely bond, as each learns from the other that there are those things in life we keep, those we need to let go, but it’s not always easy to know the difference.
I love reading books where I am swept away in the story and enjoy reading about the characters and there crazy lives.
Lucy, who is working as a house organizer for a well-known, interesting artist. Has me intrigued, as right now, I am going through my own de-cluttering process. Although her client is a major horder, and has ceiling high items through every room (mine is really not that bad in comparison!!) It is interesting to see how everyone, including Lucy who is working on this project, find a way to get their own lives back on track through the process.
Some tough subjects, such as a young adult in trouble with drugs and the self-denial one goes through while looking out for them is included. As well as the idea of suicide. You are hoping through the read, everything works out positively.
Aside from that, the love interests and the quirky attitude held by the hoarding client, is eccentric and fun to read. Of course this romance reader, gives this book a big thumbs up.
