Callahan Garrity and her motley crew of cleaners are back in book two of Mary Kay Andrews' Callahan Garrity Mystery series. This time around, Callahan is called on to solve a stolen artifacts case. And, as usual, Neva Jean and the other mice come along for the ride.
She doesn't really care for her client, an antiques dealer by the name of Elliot Littlefield, but The House Mouse isn't really bringing in enough money to declare a profit just yet. A retired Atlanta detective, Callahan bought an existing cleaning business, The House Mouse, and when she's not helping her mother, Edna, schedule housekeepers and tracking payroll, she can be found solving crimes for those that don't want to involve the police, for one reason or another.
This second book was just an okay listen. There was nothing too terribly exciting about it, except it's the first book where we're introduced to Mack, the new love of Callahan's life. For some reason, Andrews' description of him and his mannerisms remind me of Ron Swanson from NBC's Parks and Recreation. If there's a book in the series that could be skipped, this is probably it.
