If you are a fan of books such as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, you will enjoy Jennifer L. Hart's Landry Hag series. I like the cast of characters and the premise of the book and can see this being a long running series. People who have a wry sense of humour and who like witty dialogue and a good mystery will really enjoy this book!

The book description sounded fun, but with each chapter I found myself laughing less. Many of the characters/situation were just so ridiculous that I found myself rolling my eyes rather than laughing. The pushy friend who volunteers Maggie for a job, gets her involved in illegal outings, etc. The cleaning sidekicks, starting with a clueless pregnant teen then moving on to a crotchety old man. The schlub brother who uses his sister and of course is involved in the "naked man in the kitchen" scene. Maggie pushing a wheelbarrow nearly three miles to the grocery store. The uber hot hubby (some backstory as to how he & Maggie got together would have made this a bit more believable) who "affectionately" refers to his wife as Uncle Scrooge.

The ending, while not what I was expecting, was disappointing - it felt rushed and (MINOR SPOILERISH ALERT) that character wasn't all that well developed, so I didn't have the satisfactory "a-ha!" moment that comes from understanding the villain's motivation.

The writing itself wasn't terrible (saving the novel from the dreaded 1 or 2 star review) but I definitely won't be joining the laundry hag on any future adventures...

I managed to get two of these books for free. I finally read the first one and was very glad it was free. Honestly, I don't see how someone so dumb could survive. If her ex-Seal husband wasn't picking up the pieces, she'd be toast!

Just because I had the second one, I decided to read it too. I couldn't get past the first couple of pages. She's supposed to be a "Confidential Informant" for the police, but goes busting into the police station causing a scene so she can talk to her cop. Where's the "confidential" in that?

Truly, did not like the first book and couldn't stomach the second one.

It was just okay. The summary sounded promising, but it never quite came together. There's nothing glaringly terrible about The Laundry Hag, but nothing really great either. I think Maggie and her husband had great potential to be a quirky but cute couple but I never felt them because there was zero back story on how they even got together. There's really no back stories on any of the characters. We encounter it very briefly but nothing of substance. Like another reviewer stated the ending was unexpected but not satisfying.

With more character development, I think this series could definitely be worth reading. But I'll probably pass.

Not a strong plot, and more about the heroine's family life than crime-solving, but a light read if you don't want to think too much. I am concerned about this age of dumbing-down and lower standards, and even more disappointed when I find authors (or their editors, but I hold authors responsible) who fall into this, rather than be an example. This book is riddled with so many errors, I became more involved in counting them than following the story. Many examples of incorrect plural possessives, e.g., "the Kline's soiree," or "the Morgan's house" instead of "Klines'" and "Morgans'" with the correct apostrophe after the "s." And when a plural was called for, an unnecessary apostrophe was included, e.g, "the Morgan's would get their asking price" when this should simply be "Morgans." In a reference to Nancy Reagan, her name was misspelled. Not the first Kindle edition I've read with errors, but one with more than most. I will give a book a one-star fewer rating than I would have if the book had no errors.

Maggie sees herself as a good wife, mother, and all around helper when needed. She is married to an ex-Navy SEAL who is the calm in the eye of her storming daily life. When Maggie tries bringing in some extra money to help out the family, her go to thought was house cleaning since nothing beats the smell of cleanliness. What Maggie never thought she would be involved in is the over the top murder of the woman she is cleaning for and the unusual husband accused of doing the deed.

As each twist in the plot thickens Maggie is drawn more deeply into the bizarre world of a husband who likes some crazy kinky sex and a dead wife who liked to have lovers on the side. What was supposed to be a help is turning into a nightmare to her family as Maggie takes risks to help the police solve the crime. What does Maggie know about cleaning, everything; what does Maggie know about crime solving, nothing but seriously can it be that hard. As it turns out it is very difficult and way over Maggie's head but since when does that stop her.

Jennifer Hart is an adventurous, exciting, and rule breaking writer who takes her readers on a fun ride through characters you can relate to and a story

I liked the first book of this 3 book series the most. The other two were good but the poor character had some of the worst luck and almost to the point of being repetative. It seemed like she was constantly in trouble and at times gave me a headache just reading it but I still couldn't seem to stop reading so over all I liked it.
