Heart Trouble (Callahan Garrity Series #5)by Kathy Hogan Trocheck
Former cop, currently co-owner of the House Mouse housecleaning service, and freelance p.i., Callahan Garrity raises eyebrows when she accepts an assignment from the most hated woman in Atlanta -- a wealthy white socialite who killed a young black girl in a drunken hit-and-run and was punished with no more than a slap on the wrist.

Former cop, currently co-owner of the House Mouse housecleaning service, and freelance p.i., Callahan Garrity raises eyebrows when she accepts an assignment from the most hated woman in Atlanta -- a wealthy white socialite who killed a young black girl in a drunken hit-and-run and was punished with no more than a slap on the wrist. Even Callahan's "Mice" are grumbling.
But when a roadside murder turns up the heat on the racial tensions that have been simmering dangerously since Whitney Albright Dobbs received her laughably light sentence, Callahan realizes she'll have to pull out all the stops to trap a mean, mad killer -- for the sake of justice and a city that's threatening to explode.

I love the Callahan Garrity Series and this was my last one to complete. Each one can be a standalone; however, once you read one, you will want to read them all! I do hope Mary Kay (Trocheck), will continue with this series as not only as they funny, witty, they are well written and great mysteries. Mary does an outstanding job with her research and she knows Atlanta. Having spent most of my career there for years, I always love revising through her books as know all the landmarks. This one was a page turner and had to finish it on New Year’s Day as spend the day with it as could not go to bed until I found out the culprit. You will love the characters and Callahan needs to let her mom Edna run the cleaning business as she is too good of a detective and can solve any case! Not sure I have a favorite out of the series (I think my picks would be Heart Trouble and Irish Eyes), even though all of them were entertaining and glad they are being republished as e-books. Highly recommend if you like southern humor and a good mystery. Have read all Mary Kay’s books and now going back to read her Truman Kicklighter Mystery Series.
