From the Back Cover
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 ne'er-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.

The book is suspenseful, has lots of twists, and a surprise ending. This book is the first one that Kathy Hogan Trochick wrote that gives one a glimpse of the kind of writing her readers have come to expect of her once she began writing as Mary Kay Andrews. I suggest you purchase at least one of the first four books before you read this so you will know who the various characters are when you come across them in this book. You can still read this as a standalone book, but Ms. Trochick spent a lot of time developing some off-beat characters in her first four books, it would be a shame not to read at least one of them. Nevertheless, regardless of whether you read any of the other books, definitely read this one.
There are funny moments along with more thoughtful and serious ones and together they make for an enjoyable story!
