Hazardous Duty by Christy Barritt

My book review today is Hazardous Duty(Squeaky Clean Mystery) by Christy Barritt.I don't usually care for books written in the first person but I did enjoy this one. I usually love Christy's books and this one was excellent. Her characters, although flawed were quite quirky, intriguing, captivating, and humorous. I enjoyed how she wove her faith into the story. It was a great read.

Gabby St.Claire is a crime-scene cleaner. She had studied to be a forensic specialist but was forced to leave school before she could finish to take care of her father. She is cleaning the crime-scene of a murder and discovers a gun with blood splatter hidden in the closet. Before she can contact the police someone sets the house on fire with her in it. She escapes the fire and is able to turn the evidence over to the police.

Detective Chip Parker doesn't believe the husband could have killed the wife or that he had set the house on fire. He nicknames her Nancy Drew and has little respect for Gabby and refuses to take her seriously but someone does as there are several attempts on her life.

Riley Thomas moves into Gabby's apartment building. A mysterious guy Gabby finds very appealing. Riley saves her life on more than one occasion. He is drawn into the case and into a relationship with Gabby but can their relationship stand up to the secrets Riley is hiding? Riley's relationship with God is apparent Gabby
and has her wondering if maybe there is a God after all.

Is Michael Cunninham the grief stricken husband he appears or the cold blooded killer Gabby believes him to be? Is he the one who is trying to kill her?

I bought this book on Amazon so you can find it there. I know you will enjoy reading it. God bless you.
