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.

Keeping Rita Fontaine, a washed-up 1960s teenage rock star, out of jail is a tough job. It's nothing less than murder when Stu Hightower, the vain, temperamental president of a thriving Atlanta recording company, is found murdered in the den of his posh home. His only companions are the slug in his heart and Rita, dead drunk and looking guilty. Callahan believes in Rita's innocence, but discovering who killed Hightower could send her floating down a river of lost dreams without a paddle.

Good read...but...

Great plot! :-) Good development of characters. Probably the best in the series for me thus far. BUT a bit too much cursing for my taste... too many F bombs. :-(
....would have given it an overall 5 stars had if not been for that.

This is a good series with good solid realistic characters. Callahan is funny, intelligent and bravee. I like her and her supporting cast. If i can't find these books on audible, I will get them for my kindle.

Good but not great

I love Mary Kay Andrews books. But, this wasn’t one of my favorites. I had a hard time staying interested. However, Hillary Huber’s performance was excellent.

DEFINITELY NEVER happy after!!!!

I could not finish this book! Narrator is terrible. It sounds like she is reading it, and it shows in the monotone. inflection, and ;lack of interest. After 9 chapters, there was still no development of the plot!!! I don't know if there was a missing woman or a murdered woman!!! Not worth even FREE!!!!!!
