Hazardous Duty (Christian mystery) (Squeaky Clean Mysteries)

Christy Barritt

Price: FREE

Hazardous Duty switches pace from comedy to spine tingling suspense with quick deft skill. Barritt has a great cast of odd-ball characters backing up her heroine: a way-too-cute new neighbor who stacks up to be a bum like Gabby’s dad; a vegan who is willing to give a pro-animal speech at the least provocation; and a cop who looks like Brad Pitt and who might be trying to kill Gabby.
Hazardous Duty by Christy Barritt as much fun as I’ve had reading a book in a while. I feel like Christian fiction, which I love and write, has just turned a corner with this book. It’s as funny and fast paced as any book, created with Christian readers in mind with no offensive language or situations–unless picking skull fragments out of a wall offends you–which is possible. It’s pure entertainment with a Christian worldview.

Having that same cleaner uncover evidence that frames you: Priceless

On her way to completing a degree in forensic science, Gabby St. Claire drops out of school and starts her own crime scene cleaning business. “Yeah, that’s me,” she says, “a crime scene cleaner. People waiting in line behind me who strike up conversations always regret it.”

When a routine cleaning job uncovers a murder weapon the police overlooked, she realizes that the wrong person is in jail. But the owner of the weapon is a powerful foe . . . and willing to do anything to keep Gabby quiet.

With the help of her new neighbor, Riley Thomas, a man whose life and faith fascinate her, Gabby plays the detective to make sure the right person is put behind bars. Can Riley help her before another murder occurs?

“Christy Barritt’s novel, Hazardous Duty, is a delightful read from beginning to end. The story’s fresh, engaging heroine with an unusual occupation hooked me, and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend Hazardous Duty.”

—Colleen Coble Author of Fire Dancer, book one of the Smoke Jumpers Series

Editorial Reviews
Captivating, entertaining, and downright funny, this book will keep you reading until the satisfying ending. Unique characters capture your heart and have you rooting for them from the beginning. Gabby St. Claire is truly a breath of fresh air. (Susan Sleeman The Christian Suspense Zone)

Christy Barritt created one lovable and unique character. Readers will fall in love with Gabby from page one with her laugh out loud scenes and sarcastic humor. This mystery was fun to read as well as to solve. Up until the very end, I wasn’t too sure who the real suspect was in the book. I’m not sure if Gabby St. Claire will morph into a book series, but I’m sure readers will want to meet her again at future crime cleaning scenes. (Tyora Moody Faithwebbin)

If you like murder mysteries and suspense with a chick-lit feel, you’ll want to read this one! (Michelle Sutton

“The next time you’re temped to watch CSI reruns, read this book instead! Spunky, sassy Gabby St. Claire sparkles in this new series. She’ll keep you turning the pages.” (Siri Mitchell Sporting the Faith Newsletter)

“In this witty novel, chick lit meets mystery in the show-tune singing Gabby, creating a fun whodunit where you just don’t know who killed the woman or which guy you like for the heroine. There’s the changeable Detective Parker or the sweet guy-next-door-with-a-secret Riley for Gabby, and who but the would-be Senator husband would want the murder victim dead? Hazardous Duty will take you on a ride through twists, turns, quirks, acorn brownies, and spiritual questions that keep Gabby guessing. She’s a character you’re guaranteed to love, and the plot is entertaining and fast paced.” (Roseanna White Christian Review of Books)

Mrs.Havig has written an excellent book that captures the fun and chaos of large family life and weaves nuggets of parenting wisdom throughout. If you want a chance to sit and enjoy an entertaining novel, then grab this book. Don’t be surprised if you look at the world a little differently when you are done, because this is way more than “just” a novel.


Fresh out of college, Aggie Milliken thinks she’s prepared for anything life can throw her way. Think again, Aggie!

After the abrupt loss of her sister and brother-in-law, Aggie is stunned to find herself the sole guardian of their eight lively children. If learning basic parenting skills wasn’t complicated enough, she must also battle the children’s half-crazed grandmother, survive a massive remodeling project, and navigate the waters of new friendships-alone.

She has little experience with children and none with housekeeping, and it shows. What she has going for her is grit, a double dose of determination, and the confidence that this is exactly where the Lord wants her to be. With an unlimited P-mail account and enough hymns to keep her spirits bolstered, she tackles one catastrophe after another.

It seems like nothing Aggie does is right, but ready or not, here she comes!

Like a Watered Garden (The Garden Gate Series)

Patti Hill

Price: FREE

Downloaded this book early today – figured I could have an option to read while I waited at a doctor appointment – started reading and other than coming home from the doctor didn’t get anything else done! Terrific story telling – I am also a widow and hesitated to read yet another sappy story that slapped a load of spiritual platitudes on my broken heart – well glad I took a chance ’cause this was SO good. Wish I were a real gardener not a buyer and planter of doomed vegetation but Mibby is a dear and I wish I could have her for a friend as well as a “garden designer”. Wow I wanted to hate that Earring Girl too! Sighed over the hunky Ben and shuddered at the slobbery mess Blink left on everyone — read this book – it’ll make you glad God gives all His children blessings even if our parents didn’t, couldn’t, did not want to — and family is the group of people you care about – not just someone who shares your DNA.
Thank you for writing, Patti Hill – I’m reading!


“I received a box of flowers from my dead husband.”

Life has stalled for Colorado garden designer Mibby Garrett after losing her husband in a bicycle accident six months ago. Mibby devotes herself to avoiding “whammies o’ grief,” the painful and sudden reminders of her former life. But for her son, she’s willing to face anything. With the support of the indomitable Louise, friend and neighbor, and her faithful gardening clients, Mibby even considers romance with a too-good-to-be-true widower. Then comes the biggest whammy of all, a stranger with a claim to her husband’s heart. Will Mibby retreat or sound the charge on life?

Their rivalry has been long and bitter. But Chase is a new Christian. As he begins to change, he finds his relationship with Camara changing, too. When Camara’s vehicle is sabatoged, she naturally blames Chase, despite a growing attraction. Chase must prove his innocence, but evidence points his way.

Sweet Caroline (A Lowcountry Romance)

Rachel Hauck

Price: $1.99

When Sweet Caroline arrived in the mail, it leapt to the top of my TBR pile. I have thoroughly enjoyed Rachel Hauck’s NashVegas books and wondered if this one would measure up. Let me tell you, I loved every page and did not want to see it end.
As I read this book, I felt like I was transported to South Carolina. From the characters to the dialogue to the activities, it all fit that locale. And the secondary characters add a rich layer to this book. No one is thrown in without serving a purpose, and each adds a dimension to the plot and to Caroline’s character.
I loved this book…and think you will, too.
