Overview

In this heartwarming, suspenseful, and hilarious seventh book in the series, Callahan Garrity and the outrageous band of “girls” in her
Atlanta cleaning crew band together during the Christmas rush to prove her trailer-trash brother didn’t kill his even trashier ex-wife.

It’s a few days before Christmas and sometime sleuth / full-time cleaning lady Callahan Garrity has things under control for a change, until her ne’er-do-well brother—missing for more than ten years—appears with his toddler daughter, Maura. Trouble has always followed Brian, and now he’s in deeper than ever because he’s kidnapped Maura from his estranged wife, a vengeful shrew with the law on her side.

When his ex-wife is found dead, the cops suspect Brian.
Though he’s many things, Callahan knows Brian is no murderer. To save her brother and her holiday, Callahan, along with her irascible mom, Edna, and a gaggle of House Mouse employees, will crisscross yuletide Atlanta, going everywhere the search for truth leads.

I have read almost every book by Mary Kay Andrews. She never disappoints. I wish she would write faster.

I am enjoying the Callahan Garrity series and have one more to go (have not read them in order). They could be a standalone; however, once you start reading them, you will want to read them all to learn the crazy colorful southern characters. Again, Callahan solves a mystery as she has a nose for being digging and finding clues to get her murderer. (she owns a cleaning service House Mouse as well as being a PI-former cop). This time the investigation hits home as involves her long lost brother Brian, his 3 yr. old daughter, and a murdered sister in law, and an array of shady characters. Set in Atlanta, Edna the mom and all the House Mouse crew come together to solve this mystery with lots of humor and some Christmas cheer. Whether writing as Mary Kay Andrews or Kathy Hogan Trocheck –she knows southern humor! The audio version was very well done.
