    This was an interesting book in the series and I am growing to like all of the characters very much There was a lot less emphasis on the guy next door which I kind of liked andon Charlotte As for the mystery itself, it was OK The whodunit was pretty obvious but there was still some suspense Overall, I found this quick read thoroughly enjoyable and

    I love this series Having lived in the Garden District for a time I appreciate that Ms Colley gets her New Orleans right And although the plot is predictable and the killer is easy to spot, it is still a fun read It s always pleasant to spend an afternoon with Charlotte LaRue A definite recommend.

    Okay, every once in a while you just need pure escape in a quick to read, I can solve that, mode with a main character who you can enjoy and relate to and that s when you can turn to Colley s Charlotte LaRue series This maid of New Orleans bad historical pun, but apt description has yet to fail for cozy reading.

    A light read with a simple mystery I deduced using clues, not just a hunch the killer before the death even took place Charlotte is different than most of the protagonists in the mysteries I read, which added interest to the story It s a perfect read if you re looking for something laid back no real action or scary scenes and easy with a hint of intrigue.

    More mind candy I m beginning to think the catchphrase for Maid for a Day is coulda, woulda, shoulda.
