Synopsis: Between running her maid service (the successful Maid-for-a-Day) and fretting about her upcoming birthday (the dreaded 6-0), Charlotte LaRue doesn't have much time for gossip. But New Orleans's latest dust-up is hard to ignore--especially since it involves Marian Hebert, one of Charlotte's new clients. Turns out Marian's now-deceased husband once worked for his best friend Drew Bergeron's real-estate agency--and when the business deal soured, so did the friendship. The whole sordid affair came to an unfortunate end when Drew died in a plane crash--and Bill Hebert was killed in what some people insist on calling an accident. Others are convinced it was murder.
Pretty juicy stuff, right? Charlotte doesn't think so. She's trying her best to forget all the rumors--she has more important things to worry about these days. Like vacuuming, window-washing. . .and her new job at the old Devilier house. The gorgeous historic home is being transformed into luxury apartments, and Maid-for-a-Day is in charge of the cleanup. Should be easy enough, Charlotte thinks--until she finds a barely-cold corpse in one of the closets.
The police are sure the dead man is Drew Bergeron. Funny, considering Drew supposedly died years ago--and Charlotte distinctly remembers attending his funeral. Talk about messy. Suddenly all that gossip about the Heberts and Bergerons seems incredibly timely--and Charlotte wishes she'd listened just a little bit closer. . .
With old rivalries flaring--and past secrets suddenly back in the present--Charlotte has a feeling this job will involve some real dirty work. Good thing she has a knack for cleaning up crimes. . .

From Publishers Weekly: After Colley's strong series debut, Maid for Murder (2002), featuring house-cleaning sleuth Charlotte La Rue, the author stumbles in her second outing, set in New Orleans' Garden District. A scantily clad corpse found in a closet turns out to be real-estate baron Drew Bergeron, whose funeral Charlotte attended two years earlier. This tale of blackmail, fraud and injustice offers little investigation, most of the "evidence" deriving from hindsight and gossip ... la Miss Marple but without Christie's insight into human nature. Charlotte's circular musings and personal affairs serve to pad the story rather than add substance to the plot or depth to the supporting characters. Readers tired of the Big Easy as a locale of grim police procedurals, though, may welcome this cozy approach.
