She's on the job when her clients discover that their pretty nineteen-year-old Mormon nanny has disappeared...along with jewelry, silver, and a few rather sensitive real estate documents.

"This book is great. It has my nomination for Best First Mystery. Every character is fully realized, from outspoken Edna, Callahan's mom, the chauvinistic detective, to the crew of cleaning 'girls' who do their part in helping to solve the case. Who says a good mystery can't be funny?""-- Mystery News""Characters like these beg to be brought back. Lucky for us, Ms. Trocheck is already under contract for another novel in the series.""-- Atlanta journal-Constitution""This quick-paced thriller provides an intriguing introduction to a delightfully down-to-earth sleuth.""-- Booklist""Positively sparkles with originality .... Tie all this together with fresh, lively characters, a setting that has not been overused, a puzzle that is as devious as the people involved, and you have a reading session to savor.""-- Murder ad lib""Crisp intelligence and earthy wit.""-- New York Times""A clever, colorful page-turner, not to be missed...(a) high-caliber debut.""-- Publishers Weekly"
