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.

From her time on the Atlanta police force, Callahan has excelled at mopping up messes of all kinds. But she has no idea what she's getting into when she agrees to work for infamous antiques dealer Elliot Littlefield.

The first day on the job, she and her crew are on the trail of a stolen Civil War diary. Soon they are tangling with deadly serious collectors, right-wing radicals, and impulsive teenagers, all of which make the case even more difficult to solve.

    "Narrator/editor should have checked"
    What three words best describe Hillary Huber’s voice?

    Professional, but uninformed. Hillary Huber provides good voice characterizations, but has clearly not spent much time in Atlanta. It pained me to hear her mispronounce VERY well known places like Dekalb and Chamblee. The un-Atlanta pronunciation was further evidenced in words like Valdosta and even the word skirmish was bizarre, pronounced "skymarsh". Not all southern accents are the same and I am sure the narrator knows this. I think Ms |Huber researches pronunciation, but clearly did not do enough checking for this Atlanta based series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this on my drive home from work. Entertaining story even though references were a bit dated. Overall it was an enjoyable way to unwind. I only wish the narration had been better.


    Any additional comments?

    Proof readers edit misspelling ( among other things) in written text. Who edits the mispronunciations in audio versions?

    "Good Book - not so good reader"

    I like these stories - but the reader makes my teeth hurt to listen to her.

    "Another good book"

    Callahan Garrity is becoming a new favorite. To Live and Die in Dixie has likeable characters, believable plots and a fast pace. It's a great book to listen to while doing chores or driving to work.

    "Light Reading"

    I have a problem with the n word. Both this book and the one before it used it. The previous one used it more ,made me cringe each time. I feel like it was unnecessary could have been done differently and still have gotten the point across.I am well aware that there are many different people in this crazy world I don't think it was necessary. Kinda ruined it for me.

    Story
    "Southern Humor - Light Mystery"
    What did you like best about To Live and Die in Dixie? What did you like least?

    It was not as interesting as Mary Kay's other books and too similar to the others in the series. I always enjoy Hilary Huber as she is perfect for the southern women. I always enjoy hearing about Atlanta, since resided there most of my life.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mary Kay Andrews before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good. Storyline just not as good as some of the others.


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

    Edna


    Do you think To Live and Die in Dixie needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, too similar to the others in the series - needs to take on new characters (the way most are designed), not more of the same characters.
