Married to the Mop by Barbara Colley

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Charlotte never expected to be cleaning house for the mafia.  But, that's exactly what she's doing in this book. 

Emily Rossi called and asked her to help out in an emergency.  Her maid had been called out of town on a family emergency, and they had a big Mardi Gras party that week.  Charlotte agrees to clean for a few days as the money is very good.  When she realizes Emily's husband, Robert, is a top Mafia boss, she considers backing out.  She doesn't.  Then Robert ends up stabbed to death in his study during the party. 

Charlotte agrees to continue to clean the house to help out the family.  Mostly because she promised Bitsy, another of her clients, that she would help clear Emily.  Emily is currently in jail for her husband's murder.  Charlotte does not believe she killed him.  But then, who did? 

Charlotte is able to do some snooping while cleaning.  She is able to overhear some things and talk to people.  With knowledge the police haven't gotten, she pushes harder and harder to find the truth.  But, will the truth put her in danger? 

I love this series.  Charlotte is such a fun character.  She has a good life and a wonderful family.  Even though she is investigating a murder, it is an enjoyable read.  It always makes me want to go to New Orleans in reading her books.  I wonder what the next one will be like after Katrina has hit. 

I highly recommend this book and the whole series.
