Books by Author Christy Barritt

I thought today I would do a book review, since I just read two books from an up and coming author, and positively loved them.

The author is Christy Barritt. The books are Hazardous Duty and Suspicious Minds, two books in her Squeaky Clean Mystery Series.

These are my first reviews, and I don't want to give too much away, but here goes.

Crime-scene cleaner Gabby St. Claire has problems. Forced to drop out of college while studying to be a forensic scientist, Gabby starts a crime-scene cleaning business, but discovers trouble at every turn.

In Hazardous Duty, she discovers evidence the police missed while cleaning a scene, and just can't keep her nosy little self from investigating on her own. Which of course leads to all sorts of trouble.

In Suspicious Minds, Gabby has been called for an estimate to clean mold from under a crawl space, and discovers Elvis, dead as a door-nail, beneath the house. And she can't keep herself from getting involved in this mystery, either.

The cast of characters in these books are great. Quirky neighbors; one (or three) romantic interests; devious villains; and not to mention our heroine, Gabby; these characters quickly become just like old friends.

I truly can't wait for author Christy Barritt's next books. They promise to be a hilarious riot.
