Married To The Mop is the fifth installment in the Charlotte LaRue mystery series. For those who have not had the pleasure of meeting Charlotte LaRue, she is the owner of Maid-for-a-Day and also works as a part time maid. Her clients live in the prestigious Garden District of New Orleans. Charlotte is always finding herself deeply involved in murders of her rich clients and has become a super sleuthing amateur homicide detective while she goes about her business of running Maid-for-a-Day. In this installment, Charlotte finds herself cleaning house for the top Mafia don in the country who is subsequently murdered during a Mardi Gras party at his home. Before his murder, he had been fuming mad when he discovered several Faberge eggs in his prized collection missing and the eggs continue to disappear even after his murder. As is usual in the Charlotte LaRue mystery series, the potential murderers are numerous but Charlotte eventually solves the mystery as she slowly discovers clues while she goes through her daily work activities. When the murderer was eventually discovered through Charlotte¿s super sleuthing efforts, I was completely surprised. I didn¿t see it coming. Married To The Mop is a cozy mystery that kept me entertained from the beginning of the story to the very last page. Each page is filled with suspense and Barbara Colley has once again created interesting characters that you can¿t help but love and others that you can¿t help but hate. I also enjoyed reading about the famous New Orleans landmarks she always sprinkles throughout her stories. When I finished reading Married To The Mop, I felt good. I felt good about Barbara Colley, good about Charlotte LaRue, good about the Garden District, and good about New Orleans. I highly recommend Married To The Mop.

In New Orleans, Maid for a Day owner Charlotte LaRue agrees to service Emily Rossi¿s emergency request for help. Emily is hosting a gala for out-of-town guests attending the Mardi Gras, but her personnel maid left on a family emergency. However, Charlotte has doubts and not just because she is shorthanded as Emily¿s husband, Robert is reported to be a cold-blooded crime boss, who will kill anyone in his way including the cops suspect, his father.---- Charlotte tries to concentrate on doing her job even when she sees and hears a raging Robert screaming at everyone as some of his Faberge eggs are missing. Still the fee is top dollar though Charlotte does not want to know the source so when Emily asks her to also fill in for a server, she agrees. The masquerade ball proves lethal to the mob king as he is WIPED OUT with Emily holding the murder weapon. The cops assume the spouse did in her husband, but Charlotte thinks the police want to sweep the dirt under the rug with Fat Tuesday about to begin. Reluctantly she investigates the other family members who hated the patriarch as well as his opportunistic rivals and ambitious gang members.----- Adhering to her policy that she was not hired as a MAID FOR MURDER, Charlotte vows to stay out of the homicide investigation. However, being who she is when she notices little things that only a forensic expert or a cleaning person would see, she feels she must at least prove that the prime suspect is innocent. Fans will polish off her latest New Orleans adventure though with Katrina and now the controversy over hosting or canceling Mardi Gras the tale has an eerie feel to it. This is an excellent mystery.----- Harriet Klausner
