Publisher's 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 police - she used to be among their ranks - but the crime is too incongruous with Patti's suburban life to seem like a random incident.

Who doesn't love Callahan Garrity

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, I have actually

What other book might you compare Homemade Sin to and why?

all the Callahan Garrity books Ive read so far have been wonderful; they remind me a bit of some of James Patterson's women's murder club books but with a southern accent (which I love).

What does Hillary Huber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

that adorable southern accent

Another fun romp in The South

Once again, Callahan Garrity rides rough shod over family and friends to track down the bad guys while, at the same time, she manages to "clean up" The South with her little mice. Mary Kay Andrews characters may be a tad over blown and a smidge exaggerated, but as a Southerner myself, I have truly known all of the characters she has introduced. Hillary Huber does an excellent narration and brings the characters to life in a believable way. Not many people can "do" a Southern accent.

Callahan may solve crimes a little too easily and can be slightly unbelievable as a detective, so if you are a big crime and mystery buff, this might not be for you. If you want a light read, this is perfect. I chose this series after listening to the huge, five book series by Peter F Hamilton, beginning with Pandora's Star. After that, I needed something light and fun and it fit the bill.

If you noticed that I capitalized all references to The South it not because I am ignorant of proper grammar, but rather that I believe The South is the proper name of a place that lives in the hearts of all true Southerners. Mrs. John
