Every Crooked Nanny: A Callahan Garrity Mystery, Book 1

After 10 years of cleaning up the dirt on Atlanta's streets, Callahan Garrity is trading in her badge for a broom and a staff of house cleaners. But, though the uniform is a little different, Callahan soon finds herself right back in the middle of a mystery when a client's pretty, pious 19-year-old nanny is gone...along with the jewelry, silver, and a few rather sensitive real estate documents. Before she knows it, the meticulous Callahan is up to her elbows in a case involving illicit love triangles, crooked business deals, long-distance scams, and a dead body.

    "Needs to do research before publishing"

    It wouldn't have hurt to do some research on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some of the garbage that comes out of the mouths of church members could have been accurate if the author had check with the church. Not too hard to do. If she couldn't do that research, is the countryside she writes about real or does she make it up too. I enjoy a book that is accurate so that if I am ever in that area I can say this is just like *** , and I enjoyed that book so much.

    Story
    "She can clean for me anyday!!!!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was unsure at first about listening to this book. Sometimes a narrator will try to sound "southern" and the outcome is horrible. Not so in this case. Narrator was great, storyline believable, and the characters were well written.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Crooked Nanny?

    When I was introduces to the main characters and all of their quirks!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Fishing, when she went to find the scientist and he was fishing. Her boots!!!


    Could you see Every Crooked Nanny being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, and I think that Reva McIntyre would/should play lead

    "The characters remind us of family!"
    Would you listen to Every Crooked Nanny again? Why?

    Yes. For the love of the characters and the area.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Held your interest but enjoyed the ride even more.


    What about Hillary Huber’s performance did you like?

    She portrays the attitudes and accents the area.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    How well do you really know anyone?


    Any additional comments?

    Fun listening!

    "good southern characters"

    Good, mildly complex mystery story with good characters. I am from Georgia and felt like I have met most of the characters in the book. The narration lacks a little to be desired, however. The narrator has a pleasant voice, and a few of her characters were almost dead-on, almost exactly how I would expect the voice and accent of that person to sound. Mostly, though, she spoke too slowly and enunciated too precisely to sound like any normal person anywhere, southern or otherwise. I don't know if this was the fault of the narrator or the director, but it was very annoying. Not annoying enough to prevent me from enjoying the listen, but I would've enjoyed it a lot more if the narration had been better.

    Story
    "Native Atlantan CRINGES at narrator :("

    While I enjoy Mary Kay Andrews light hearted reads, I struggled with the narrator butchering many things "southern." It really is distracting and interferers with one's ability to focus on the story. She pronounced Beaufort, SC as Bofort - it's should be pronounced like beautiful - made me cringe every time as I grew up vacationing near BEAUTIFUL BEAUFORT! The same narrator does all 4 books in the series, so although I enjoyed the story/characters, not sure if I can continue. Please audio book folks, take care to match a narrator with the storyline - it greatly affects the listeners enjoyment and purchases.

    The narrator was fantastic! The characters were great! The story was good.


    What does Hillary Huber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    "So glad to find another great fun series!"
    What did you love best about Every Crooked Nanny?

    Light! Fun! Interesting characters, and a mystery to solve.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the narrator really helps to make the story for me. In just the first few minutes I knew I was really going to enjoy this book because I loved the narrator. The characters are fun, if a little gritty, but I like that and now I have another wonderful series of books to look forward to!

    "very disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Every Crooked Nanny?

    weak story line


    What could Mary Kay Andrews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    seemed like she was mostly interested in Mormon bashing. Its very poor taste to bash a religion in a book, and since I am Mormon, I found it especially offensive


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    the narrator was fine


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the accents and voice were well done


    Any additional comments?

    The characters were pretty rude and intolerant of others

    "Don't bother with this one"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Kay Andrews again?

    I have really liked this author until this book. Not her normal good writing. Made fun of a religion she does not really know about. Poor choice of story content.
