Homemade Sin: A Callahan Garrity Mystery, Book 3 | [Mary Kay Andrews]

Homemade Sin: A Callahan Garrity Mystery, Book 3

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. It's not that she doesn't have confidence in the Atlanta police - she used to be among their ranks - but the crime is too incongruous with Patti's suburban life to seem like a random incident.

    If you could sum up Homemade Sin in three words, what would they be?

    Heartbreaking, exciting, non-stop

    Callahan is a great main character - you are really drawn to her and hanging on her every thought.


    Which character – as performed by Hillary Huber – was your favorite?

    Callahan's mother - hands down the funniest character!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Entire story has your heart - the little boy in this book makes me want to hug him.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent 3rd book in the series.

    Story
    "Another fun romp in The South"

    Once again, Callahan Garrity rides rough shod over family and friends to track down the bad guys while, at the same time, she manages to "clean up" The South with her little mice. Mary Kay Andrews characters may be a tad over blown and a smidge exaggerated, but as a Southerner myself, I have truly known all of the characters she has introduced. Hillary Huber does an excellent narration and brings the characters to life in a believable way. Not many people can "do" a Southern accent.

    Callahan may solve crimes a little too easily and can be slightly unbelievable as a detective, so if you are a big crime and mystery buff, this might not be for you. If you want a light read, this is perfect. I chose this series after listening to the huge, five book series by Peter F Hamilton, beginning with Pandora's Star. After that, I needed something light and fun and it fit the bill.

    If you noticed that I capitalized all references to The South it not because I am ignorant of proper grammar, but rather that I believe The South is the proper name of a place that lives in the hearts of all true Southerners. Mrs. John

    Story
    "A Good Book to Sleep To"
    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.

    Story
    "Nothing Special"
    Would you try another book from Mary Kay Andrews and/or Hillary Huber?

    Of Course. I like her stories. They are easy to listen to and kind of zone out with. They are generally entertaining. This one just missed the mark.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mary Kay Andrews? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    Which character – as performed by Hillary Huber – was your favorite?

    Neva Jean.


    Was Homemade Sin worth the listening time?

    Well...I finished it so I suppose so, but I think it felt like more of an obligation to finish the book because I bought it.

    "SIN CAN KILL"

    THIS STORY IS A LITE MYSTERY BUT WELL WORTH THE CREDIT. FULL OF LAUGHS, SO MUCH TO FIND OUT WHILE CLEANING AND SLEUTHING FOR A MURDERER OF YOUR BEST FRIEND. CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS, IS MORE THAN AN EXPRESSION, THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN IT WILL NEVER LET YOU REST TILL YOU UNDERSTAND, THE WHY.
