Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Entertaining and Southern as the Callahan mother-daughter team – returns full of mischief and humor as her cleaning crew (turned detective) is on the trail of a stolen Civil War diary. With collectors, radicals, teens, southern belles, shabby developers, and crimes to solve. Did not enjoy this one as much as the others in the series as a light mystery and listened to audio was the narrator is always good for a good laugh.
