Maid for Murder

New Orleans cleaning impresario and “amateur sleuth Charlotte La Rue will dust her way into readers’ hearts in this auspicious debut of a new cozy series” (Publishers Weekly).
Charlotte La Rue has a nice, quiet life. Business is booming at her housecleaning service, Maid-for-a-Day, and she spends her down time with her parakeet, Sweety Boy, and a good mystery novel. Everything’s perfect. Well, almost everything . . .
Because sometimes cleaning house for her wealthy clientele means dealing with their dirty laundry. And when it comes to the much-talked-about Dubuisson family, there’s been an awful lot of it since Jackson Dubuisson was found murdered in his study. The entire Garden District is abuzz with gossip about the killing—and who might have done it.
Charlotte would rather stay out of it. But when Jackson’s addled mother-in-law unwittingly reveals a closet full of family skeletons, it becomes clear that someone close to Jackson wanted him dead.
Surrounded by suspects and hounded by a tenacious detective, Charlotte wishes she could stick to her own policy of staying out of clients’ personal business. But Charlotte’s never been able to walk away from a mess—and before she’s done, the killer is going to have to come clean . . .
