I've been an avid reader of Christie Craig for several years, mainly because I know I'm going to curl up to read something that not only holds my interest, but does it with laughter, whimsy and truisms most southerners relate to. Her writing style always leads those of us in the south back to our roots and to the theory that, laughter through tears is sometimes the best therapy to be found. Remember Steel Magnolias? And laughter through tears? We inhale and exhale through laughter in Dixie. :)
The book also offers a touch of paranormal, which always draws me in...but it's delivered in just the right amount...not heavy handed, or over the top, just enough to add that extra dash of intrigue.
Craig also gives us her own style of romance, sweet, but not syrupy...and with just enough heat, to remind us that, yes ma'am, good girls do have morals, but what qualifies us as good, doesn't necessarily mean "never ever" until after the ring goes on. Craig always strikes just the right balance with this, bringing us the values of this era :) So, drift in, have a read...put your feet up, and sit a spell...you're going to feel right at home :)

Format: Paperback
"Murder, Mayhem, and Mama" is written by Christie Craig, and it can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Cali McKay and Detective Brit Lowell.

One thing I love about reading Christie's books is that it never disappoints me. I honestly think she's one of the best authors when it comes to storylines that deal with romance, suspense, and comedy. She's always keeping me on my toes, and this book was no different!

Cali McKay is grieving over the loss of her mother. She's not going crazy, but she's pretty sure her mother is talking to her in her dreams. And the ironic part is every advice that her mother gives to Cali, it's keeping Cali safe or actually happens. She just wants to go on with her life. Why won't her crazy ex-boyfriend, Stan, leave her alone? And why is Detective Brit Lowell constantly showing up on her doorstep?

Brit's partner just got murdered. He's upset and wants to find the perpetrator. When Brit gets assigned to Cali's case, this isn't just a normal case for him. Sure, Cali and him got off on the wrong foot when they first met, but Brit wants to keep her safe and alive. And yes, he might have some feelings for her too.

Will Brit be able to keep Cali safe from her ex-boyfriend? Why does Stan really want the bracelet back? Who is murdering Brit's fellow officers? Will Cali's mom finish her unfinished business and crossover to the other side? Can Cali and Brit overcome the many obstacles that stand in their way?

"Murder, Mayhem, and Mama" was such a wonderful story to read! You will not want to put this book down!

Spoiler alert.

Although I liked this book, the only thing I didn't like was the usual underestimation of 'killer on the loose, woman disregards her own safety because she wants 'control' of her life again. I'm fairly sure that doing so causes the killer to be caught faster, but to be honest, as independent a woman as I am, if someone said I should do something for my safety, I'd be more liable to listen. Albeit, the only danger the lady seems to be in is from her idiotic ex, it's still surprising when the guy tells her it's not safe and she doesn't listen. One of these days an author needs to make a story where a character thinks she's so tough and in control of her life and meets her maker as a cause, so it will emphasize the meaning of common sense.
The hallelujah chorus breaks out when any heroine stops and goes nope, this could get me killed. Think I'll listen to the guy who's a cop and knows what he's doing.

Other than that, I liked how the story and how the hero interacted with the cats. Very cute.

I liked this story because it had heart and humor. The hero, a detective, and the heroine, a high school art teacher, were both good people working through a difficult and painful time in their lives. Both made some poor decisions in this story, but their overall intent was good.
The story was a both a mystery and a romance. At times light hearted and funny, and then often really rather sad. The story took unexpected turns, and kept my attention.
I really liked the stray mama cat that no one would admit to feeding, the supportive friends and family members, and the "ghost" mother who stayed because she loved her child and wanted to help. I liked the author's style of writing. I read this book in one day because it caught my imagination and held it. I think others will enjoy it too.

I can probably count on one hand how many times I've given a 5-star rating for a book. Not because I haven't read a ton of great books, but because I think 5-stars are like the Olympics...only given to the best of the best. Murder, Mayhem and Mama IS the best!

Everything felt right. The story, the characters, the pacing...everything. I absolutely loved it. I loved it so much that I quit reading it for a day because I didn't want to read "The End." Now that's messed up...LOL.

But it is truly a great book. A huge thanks to the talented Ms. Craig.
