Eileen | 394 comments 1. Every Crooked Nanny by Kathy Hogan Trocheck Every Crooked Nanny (Callahan Garrity Mystery, #1) by Kathy Hogan Trocheck

I really enjoyed this book, got drawn into the interplay with the characters. No surprise when I discovered she also writes a Mary Kay Andrews - love those books!

Eileen | 394 comments 8. Between a Clutch and a Hard Place by Gayle Trent Between a Clutch and a Hard Place (Myrtle Crumb, #1) by Gayle Trent This one was OK

9. When Good Bras Go Bad by Gayle Trent When Good Bras Go Bad (Myrtle Crumb, #2) by Gayle Trent I was disappointed by this second book, it didn't have the promise that the first one did despite some of the same characters.

Also both had typos that drove me crazy - "wondered" for wandered, "ya'll" for y'all, a few others I noticed but can't remember right now.

Eileen | 394 comments 10. Irish Eyes by Kathy Hogan Trocheck Irish Eyes (Callahan Garrity Mystery, #8) by Kathy Hogan Trocheck

I loved this series, but was disappointed by this last book. It was good, but sad. Yes, some of the others I found sad too, for different reasons, but this one seemed unnecessary. Also, it seemed to me as if things were left unresolved - bothers me a bit.
