Publisher's Summary

In this heartwarming, suspenseful, and hilarious novel, Callahan Garrity and the outrageous band of "girls" in her Atlanta cleaning crew join together during the Christmas rush to prove that her trailer-trash brother didn't kill his even trashier estranged wife.

It's a few days before Christmas, and sometime sleuth/full-time cleaning lady Callahan Garrity has things under control for a change, until her never-do-well brother, Brian, shows up. He's kidnapped his toddler daughter, Maura, from his estranged wife, a vengeful shrew with the law on her side.

When his ex-wife is found dead, the cops suspect Brian. To save her brother and her holiday, Callahan, along with her irascible mom, Edna, and a gaggle of House Mouse employees, will crisscross yuletide Atlanta, going everywhere the search for truth leads.

Usually enjoy Mary Kay's books. This, not so much.

The story was very slow. Narrator's voice was irritating. Couldn't even finish it. Hoping the next book gets back to being entertaining.

Is it Christmas?

A light murder mystery surrounded by the custody of a child. Not really a Christmas book but it was happening around the Holiday Season. A Mother-in-Law takes on the responsibility of protecting her granddaughter from her Mother who has less that any moral compass when it comes to the welfare of her child. When the Mother is found murdered everyone involved in the sweet child's life becomes a suspect.

Callahan Garity, her aunt, is a retired PD officer and private detective so understandably she is on the case to clear her family and protect her niece. Corruption and unsolved murders start cropping up while she is conducting her investigation. A pretty good mystery with real characters. Hillary Huber's good narration added to the story and took it from a 3 to a 4 for me.

Twisty

If you like family drama, this is the book for you! Exciting plots and twists that’s are feasibly able to be a true crime. Most of us have that 1 in the family... Enjoyable and an easy listen.

Drawn out and predictable. Ready for it to be over 4 hours before it was.

I couldn’t finish it

I got this book based on the reviews, but I am about halfway through it and I have to stop. I can’t deal with the content and bickering over custody of a 3-year-old. I was gutting through but ultimately decided it was slow torture. I can’t get engaged with the characters. The content and actions of the characters annoy me. Anyone describing this as a fun novel is out of their mind. I feel like it a bad real-life drama. Ugh.

Midnight Clear

Not what I would expect from Mary Kay Andrews. Narrator was annoying. I listened to the whole thing waiting for it to get better, but I hated it.

Out of the park!

So far, what a series. It's funny, the characters created are engrossing, her "worldscape" is funny, creative, and believable.
Get This series. You will really enjoy it.

Best Callahan Garrity Mystery yet.

I thourougly enjoyed this book. Same great characters with great new ones to fill out the plot. All very believable with a touch of humor. Performace voices for each character were outstanding. Between the descriptions and voices it was like watching movie in your head while you listened. I sure hope Mary Kay Andrews keeps these books coming.
