Publisher's Summary

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. Now she has to roll up her sleeves and start some industrial strength sleuthing to solve - and survive - this mess.

    "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.

    "Great summer read!"

    Loved it!! Mary Kay Andrews has always been one of my favorite authors. Glad I found her older mystery series.

    "good book but poor choice of language used"

    good story but could have done without hearing the N word used. This is beneath the author and disappoints me.

    Story
    "Ok, book from a newish author."

    Ok first book for a new author. Fair warning- I'm OCD so when the story contradicted itself it really bothered me.

    The narrator forgot her southern accent often which I also found irksome.

    "Riveting"

    Hilary Huber did a wonderful job performing this story. Her voice draws you, the reader, in. The story was riveting. The author did a very good job keeping the reader in suspense, adding in humor, describing parts of Atlanta. and capturing the essence and nature of cults and other religions.

    "Bad representation of Mormons"

    I hope people reading this remember that the characters who were thought of as Mormons were NOT actually mormons!! The behavior and crazy ideas of these characters is not what actual Mormons believe.
