Overview

Callahan Garrity is the owner of house mouse, a cleaning service that tidies up after Atlanta's elite. She's also a former cop and a part-time sleuth. She and her coterie of devoted helpers can ransack a house for clues faster than it takes a fingerprint to set.

After ten years of cleaning up Atlanta's streets, former cop Callahan Garrity trades in her badge for a broom and starts a housekeeping business. She's on the job when her client announces that her pretty, nineteen-year-old Mormon nanny has disappeared—along with jewelry, silver, and some sensitive real-estate documents.

Soon Callahan and her crew of eccentric cleaners are involved in a job messier than any they've ever encountered. Illicit love triangles, crooked business deals, long-distance scams— it's going to require some industrial-strength sleuthing on Callahan's part to solve this one.

Every Crooked Nanny 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Kathy H Trocheck is known today as Mary Kay Andrews, and this is one of her earlier books which features Callahan Garrity. Callahan is an unlikely detective, as she runs a house cleaning service with over-the-hill ladies, but murder and mayhem interrupt the cleaning. The series has many fascinating characters and the situations create scenes of laughter. Of course, Callahan has her fill of problems, such as a perfect sister and a cancer scare and no boyfriend in sight. Who knows what the next caper will be?

I LOVED this book. I have always been a fan of Mary Kay Andrews so I was so excited to see that she published this series that was originally under another name of hers. This book reminded me a lot of the Stephanie Plum books (huge fan btw). It had action, comedy, and a little love. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Keep them coming Andrews!
