Maid for murder: a squeaky clean Charlotte LaRue mystery
Charlotte doesn't mind polishing silver, scrubbing toilets, or dusting bookcases--but she can't stand dealing with her rich clients' dirty laundry. And when it comes to the much-talked-about Dubuisson family, there's an awful lot of it--especially since Jackson Dubuisson was found murdered in his study.
Now this exclusive enclave is abuzz with all kinds of gossip--and some very sinister speculation. A chatty socialite keeps hinting that Jackson's extra-marital affair may have been the death of him. His mother-in-law--who's quite possibly senile--has revealed more of the Dubuisson family's secrets than Charlotte ever wanted to know. And then there's his widow, Jeanne. Charlotte refuses to desert her in her time of need--but suspects she may have something to hide. One thing is certain: someone wanted Jackson dead--and that someone is not coming clean. . .
Surrounded by possible suspects and hounded by a tenacious police detective, Charlotte wishes she could stick to her own policy of staying out of clients' personal business. Problem is, she's never been able to walk away from a mess. And this is the biggest one she's ever seen. . .

|display_description||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 . . .|
