    Book summary:

    The fifth book in the exciting Callahan Garrity series sees the cleaning lady/sleuth tracking down the murderer of a woman whom the entire city loved to hate.

    Callahan Garrity has her hands full trying to expand her House Mouse cleaning business. So she's reluctant to take on a client in need of detective services, especially when that client is the most notorious woman in AtlantaWhitney Albright Dobbs. Whitney is a wealthy socialite who, while under the influence, hit and killed a young black girl and just kept driving.

    Whitney's light sentence has set the city's racial tensions ablaze, and Callahan is not especially keen on helping track down Whitney's soon-to-be-ex-husband's hidden assets. Against her better judgment, though, Callahan launches a full-out search for Dr. Dobbs's dollars. But it only takes a glance to see that more than Whitney's alimony is at stake.

    Book summary:

    Callahan Garrity is the owner of House Mouse, a cleaning service that tidies up after Atlanta's elite. She's also a former cop and a part-time sleuth. She and her coterie of devoted helpers can ransack a house for clues faster than it takes a fingerprint to set.

    Some people might call Callahan Garrity nosy, but she prefers to think of her tendency toward snooping as a healthy interest in the truth. So when news reaches her of her cousin Patti's death during a carjacking, Callahan shakes off her House Mouse cleaning uniform to don her detective's cap. It's not that she doesn't have confidence in the Atlanta policeshe used to be among their ranksbut the crime is too incongruous with Patti's suburban life to seem like a random incident.

    Book summary:

    Irish Eyes is the latest entry in Kathy Hogan Trocheck's delightfully engaging and suspenseful mystery series featuring the remarkable Callahan Garrity and the outrageous band of "girls" in her Atlanta cleaning crew. Callahan has her hands full for St. Patrick's Day with a crime spree that hit., close to home--and close to her heart.

    When Callahan was an Atlanta cop, her partner, Bucky, was a stand-up guy, and he and Callahan have remained the best of pals. Now Bucky needs a date for the annual St. Paddy's Day bash, and Callahan grudgingly goes along. With Mac, her longtime beau, talking about a possible move to Nashville, she's in need of a fun night out. What she gets instead is the shock of her life.

    On the way home, Bucky is shot in what looks like a liquor-store holdup while Callahan waits in the car. She's stunned when accusations fly that Bucky is a cop on the take and that he's actually been an accomplice in a string of robberies.

    With Bucky in critical condition, his life and reputation hanging in the balance, Callahan and her crew set out to find the truth. As feisty and relentless as ever, Callahan, her lovable mom, Edna, and her ragtag band of House Mouse employees rely on their usual plucky determination and unorthodox sleuthing skills to get answers. This time, it will take every skill they've got to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding an Irish police fraternal organization and prove that the case is more than it seems.

    In true Trocheck fashion, Irish Eyes is an exciting, heartwarming story filled with lively, unforgettable characters. Witty and entertaining, it is also the biggest, best Callahan Garrity outing yet, tension-riddled mystery that probes the depths of corruption, friendship, and betrayal.

    Book summary:

    In a suburban Atlanta neighborhood where divorce is as rampant as kudzu, Mary Bliss McGowan doesn't notice that her own marriage is in trouble until the summer night she finds a note from her husband, telling her he's gone -- and taken the family fortune with him.

    Stunned and humiliated, a desperate Mary Bliss, left behind with her seventeen-year-old daughter, Erin, and a mountain of debt, decides to salvage what's left of her life by telling one little bitty lie.

    At first, Mary Bliss simply tells friends and family that Parker is out of town on a consulting job. Then the lies start to snowball, until Parker turns up dead. Or does he?

    Mary Bliss's formerly staid existence careens into overdrive as she copes with an oversexed teenager, a mother-in-law with Ethel Merman delusions, and the sudden but delicious shock of finding herself pursued by two men: the next-door neighbor who's looking for a suitable second wife, and a dangerously attractive ex-cop who's looking for the truth about Parker McGowan.

    Little Bitty Lies is a comic Southern novel about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets, and one woman's lifelong quest for home -- and the perfect recipe for chicken salad.

She is convinced that her troubles will be over if she makes a big killing at the upcoming estate sale at a noble plantation house.

    But an unauthorized "sneak preview" at the sale lands Weezie smack in the middle of magnolia-scented murder, mayhem... and more. Dirty deals simmerall around her just as her relationship with the hottest chef in town heats up, and she finds out how delicious love can be -- the second time around.

    Book summary:

    Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk has lost all her worldly possessions, thanks to a brief but disastrous relationship with the gorgeous Reddy, an "investment counselor" who turns out to be a con man. All that's left is a ramshackle 1950s motel on Tybee Islandan eccentric beach town that calls itself a drinking village with a fishing problem.

    Breeze Inn is a place where the very classy BeBe wouldn't normally be caught dead, but with no alternative, she moves into the manager's unit, vowing to make magic out of mud. The work is grueling, especially dealing with the bad-tempered caretaker, a fishing captain named Harry who's trying to earn enough dough to get his boat out of hock. With the help of Harry and her junking friend Weezie, BeBe soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests.

    Then there's a sighting of Reddy in Fort Lauderdale, and BeBe decides to go after him. She puts together a posse, and with the irrepressible Granddaddy Loudermilk snoring in the backseat of the Buick, heads south. The plan is to carry out a sting that may be just a little bit outside the law but that, with any luck at all, will retrieve BeBe's fortune and put the dastardly Reddy in jail, where he belongs. And maybe Harry, who's looking more hunky every day, will finally get his boat back.

    Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she's made over the past decade of her life. Juliawhose caustic wit covers up her wounds--has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life.  And Dorie has just been shockingly betrayed by the man she loved and trusted the most in the world&though this is just the tip of the iceberg of her problems and secrets. A month in North Carolina's Outer Banks is just what they each of them needs.

    Ty Bazemore is their landlord, though he's hanging on to the rambling old beach house by a thin thread. After an inauspicious first meeting with Ellis, the two find themselves disturbingly attracted to one another, even as Ty is about to lose everything he's ever cared about.

    Five people questioning everything they ever thought they knew about life. Five people on a journey that will uncover their secrets and point them on the path to forgiveness. Five people who each need a sea change, and one month in a summer rental that might just give it to them.
