Losing her posh advertising job, her boyfriend, and her apartment all in the same morning has left Corinna Leyendecker with a massive mess where her life should be. She tries to get things back on track, but with a mountain of red tape between her and unemployment assistance and a string of disastrous job interviews under her belt, it’s clear that following the rules is getting her nowhere. So she decides to start doing things her way…
With the help of a quirky friend—and some unconventional branding—Corinna launches her own business: an elite cleaning service for wealthy men. And business is booming…until the day she finds a dead homeless man in the house of a fussy new client. As usual, Corinna’s instinct is to clean up, but body disposal isn’t easy, especially when you’re juggling work, friendships, media attention, and a nasty flu. It’s going to take more than a little elbow grease to finish this dirty job and come out clean.
At first, I wasn’t sure what to make of this book, but as I got into it I found myself enjoying it. It’s a mix between chick lit with a light bit of mystery.
The protagonist Corinna Leyendecker, has a tough day losing her job and her boyfriend. After numerous interviews she decides to start her own business and begins to build a business that provides household services for busy men. It was when Corinna found the dead man that the story really began to pick up for me.
I thought Corinna was a very strong character. No matter what happened to her, she picked herself up and moved on, never complaining.
Dust Angel is a light, short and at times humorous read. The translation from German to English is very smooth. It’s incredibly easy to read.
