    This short novella brings Andrew's Atlanta cleaning lady/ detect

    This short novella brings Andrew's Atlanta cleaning lady/ detective, Garrity, into a very short, by very cute, tale of the preverbal holiday fruit cake. One way or another, fruitcake gifts are just too deadly, and Garrity proves it once again!

    more from this reviewer

    This is a truly funny book!

    Just the right length, a very short, short story, that can be read and quickly during the Christmas season (or any other if you are in a Christmas state of mind) just when we have no time for relaxing or taking a moment in that so very hectic time of year. Enjoy reading everyone, it is a true Mary Kay Andrews gem - and I am looking forward to reading so many, many others. I have her next (short story) awaiting to be enjoyed on my Nook waiting to be be read. You will enjoy this "Fatal Fruitcake"
