    Synopsis between running Maid for a Day, and other things, Charlotte doesn t have time even for gossip Then she finds a body in a closet.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I enjoyed this book up until the solving of the mystery The ending was terrible Sam was apparently a killer but also a family man but also trying to be a lothario but also best friends and cared about the two kids and called 911 to save Charlotte Then we never hear about him again after he s presumably arrested It didn t work for me.

    Such a disappointment The first third of the book I spent counting how many times Ms Colley used the same word in a paragraph and spent little time following the very thin plotline By the middle of the book, I mind blanked because I remember neither multiple word usage nor a plotline By the end, whole paragraphs could have been removed and the overall storyline, what there was of it, could have held As I said, the book was a letdown.Begrudging her upcoming sixtieth birthday, Charlotte LaRue, Such a disappointment The first third of the book I spent counting how many times Ms Colley used the same word in a paragraph and spent little time following the very thin plotline By the middle of the book, I mind blanked because I remember neither multiple word usage nor a plotline By the end, whole paragraphs could have been removed and the overall storyline, what there was of it, could have held As I said, the book was a letdown.Begrudging her upcoming sixtieth birthday, Charlotte LaRue, owner of Maid For A Day, grabs her cleaning supplies and heads out to her next major project, an older home in the Garden District of New Orleans that has been changed into individual apartments When she hears the screams of one of her employees, she runs to aid only to discover a body in the closet dressed in boxers and a mardi gras mask Not that that scene was strange enough, but under the mask was a man that was declared dead two years prior How can that be Charlotte s company rules of not messing in her client s business and her need to meddle conflict as she helps her niece, the police detective, and Louis her next door neighbor solve this mystery.I recall the first book, Maid for Murder being much better so I am not sure what went wrong The storyline was too slow and meandering with no real direction until the last 15 percent of the book where presto chango, the murderer was discovered and they all lived happily ever after I hope that the remaining books in this series are better, but I was so turned off by the book that I do not think I will be rushing to the next in the series

    I m sure I probably got this one free for the Kindle I read free mysteries and romance on my Kindle at the gym to pass the time This one sounded okay, even though it was the second in a series I hadn t read, so I started it.It was readable I enjoyed some of it The main character is an older lady who is a snooze fest She s extremely judgemental and fussy and proclaims how much she hates gossip and such every 5 minutes, but she s super nosy I didn t particularly care about any of these chara I m sure I probably got this one free for the Kindle I read free mysteries and romance on my Kindle at the gym to pass the time This one sounded okay, even though it was the second in a series I hadn t read, so I started it.It was readable I enjoyed some of it The main character is an older lady who is a snooze fest She s extremely judgemental and fussy and proclaims how much she hates gossip and such every 5 minutes, but she s super nosy I didn t particularly care about any of these characters and you could see the ending coming a mile away It took at least a quarter of the book before anything actually happened Then it was wrapped up with about 10% left to go where they droned on about stupid stuff no one cares about Something evidently big happened in the first book, but unlike most series books, they don t do any kind of mini recap to get new readers up to date I might read another of these if I got it free, but it s not high up on my list at all There s also a very glaring error at one point when Charlotte, in her mind, puts Sam s first name with Marian s last name, though she s been saying Sam Johnson I think that was his last time the entire time

    First off, let me just say that I really do love Charlotte LaRue as a character she s smart, sassy, fun, principled and never lets anything get her down I can only hope to be something like her when i m sixty This book had a terribly slow start that didn t seem relevant and the middle dragged It did pick up and had a really good ending but I felt Ms Colley was scrambling to fit everything in the last few chapters that should have been better distributed throughout the whole book It did make First off, let me just say that I really do love Charlotte LaRue as a character she s smart, sassy, fun, principled and never lets anything get her down I can only hope to be something like her when i m sixty This book had a terribly slow start that didn t seem relevant and the middle dragged It did pick up and had a really good ending but I felt Ms Colley was scrambling to fit everything in the last few chapters that should have been better distributed throughout the whole book It did make me smile how she gave a nod to my favorite cozy mystery author Joanne Fluke by Charlotte and Bitsy mentioning that they were both reading The Blueberry muffin murder what I am hoping happens as the series progresses is to seeof Miss Charlotte s family relationships progress and I hope she sees a lotof Louis

    I may try onebook of this series I think this book was a little better than the last one, but the jury s still out I am getting a little tired of cleaning house and all of the hon this and no, hon that I do wish we would move on from the expression thank you very much I found myself skipping over a few parts that had a little too much detail Also, there were a couple attempts to try educate me I don t mind the education I just don t like it to be so obvious.

    This is my 2nd book to give up after 2 chapters But since I cannot sleep not knowing who did it this is after all a who done it story I read the last four chapters just to find out Trust me, this book is too boring to be a mystery murder crime book, whatever it is trying to be one I m an avid Christie reader and I have to say Miss Marple was not a bore So I m not really sure what this book is trying to do.
