    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. Some people might call Callahan Garrity nosy, but she prefers to think of her tendency toward snooping as a healthy interest in the truth. So when news reaches her of her cousin Patti's death during a carjacking, Callahan shakes off her House Mouse cleaning uniform to don her detective's cap.

    What did you like best about Homemade Sin? What did you like least?

    I was excited to introduce my husband to this series, so on our way to DC, we tried to listen to this book. Holy Moses, it was so-o-o-o disappointingly boring! We tried again, on our way home, but could not do it. Another fifteen more minutes, and that was all we could do; evensped up the pace on the playback, hoping it was the narrator, but that did no good. I was truly saddened, as I've been able to get him into books in the past via Audible. Sorry, but yuck. This Callahan crushed my heart.


    Has Homemade Sin turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hillary Huber’s performances?

    Not without listening to a sample first.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm spooked off of this series now, which is disappointing. Reading is my escape.
