Dumpster Dying: A Hazardous Hoarder Mystery by Michelle Bennington

Dumpster Dying: A Hazardous Hoarder Mystery
by Michelle Bennington

A fun yet thought-provoking cozy mystery that tackles some serious life issues, such as the loss of a spouse, loneliness, and hoarding. I recommend DUMPSTER DYING to cozy mystery readers who enjoy yard sales and more mature sleuths.

If you like cozy mysteries with a ghost to boot, Dumpster Dying could be the start of a new series you may enjoy. I definitely can’t wait to be back to see what Birdie and Oda Dean are up to next.

Can she figure out what happened before it is too late? You will have to read it to find out. A great start to a new series that is sure to delight cozy fans as well as those looking for an older protagonist. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

Birdie Harper is a widowed hoarder who lives with her husband’s ghost. The only thing she enjoys more than a good yard sale is a good dumpster dive. When she finds her latest treasure—a ceramic angel— she knows just who to bring it to.


Jenna Lawson is a cashier at the Blue Market convenience store where Birdie often shops. The two women have formed a strong bond to assuage the losses in their lives, and Birdie thinks of Jenna like the daughter she lost long ago. So, when Jenna goes missing, Birdie is determined to find out what happened to her.


As she works to unravel the mystery, a man at church, Neville Miller, shows interest in Birdie, leading her to wonder if the lonely days are finally coming to an end. But her ghostly husband, Walter, sure isn’t going to like it.


Birdie is on a hunt that may claim the ultimate price—her own life.
