Publisher's Summary

Living on her own for her first time, Bible school student Jane cleans houses to make ends meet. But being independent brings big trials, like falling for a handsome professor, dealing with an obnoxious roommate, and then there's the dead bodies...

Who knew being housekeeper to wealthy owners of a Roly Burger franchise would mean sweeping up clues to their death, while ministering to the needs of their heirs?

This is one big mess that Jane is intent on cleaning up before things get even worse.

    Story
    "Double Trouble Murder"
    What made the experience of listening to Good, Clean, Murder the most enjoyable?

    Moves along fast and holds ones interest.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Quit the biting of the lip. Not only is Jane constantly biting her lip or her inside cheek, others do the same. Make Jane have a little more backbone. Jane mistakes being a doormat as being a Christian.


    What about Rebecca Roberts’s performance did you like?

    Rebecca Robert's did a really good job narrating. She has a nice voice and makes the story more interesting. I really like Roberts style.


    If you could rename Good, Clean, Murder, what would you call it?

    I really don't know what else to call it. The title is quirky and ok as it is.


    Any additional comments?

    Too many references to missionary or church things that are abbreviated without explaining the meaning of them. Jane is a bit of a drip. She sure is not ready for any kind of missionary work. It is a Christian mystery but could be better presented. I felt like the Bible and Christian references were more fillers than true Christian content.

    "Ms Roberts is the best thing about this book"


    Actually bought this a while ago, but it got lost in the to-be-read pile.
    Interesting little mystery, speedy plot, but main character is disappointing. For someone who is paying out big money to go to private college to learn to be a missionary, she seems to have little sense and less adaptive skills.
    The saving points of this Whispersync-on-the-cheap deal was the performance by narrator Rebecca Roberts. I honestly can't say if I would have finished it as a print or ebook, but her voice interpretation caused me to want to listen to the end.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Ok"

    The story was ok, narration was average, but the editing was lacking. Background noises between chapters.

    Story
    "I wish I'ld skipped this."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm sure someone somewhere will enjoy it. I didn't .


    Would you ever listen to anything by Traci Tyne Hilton again?

    I don't think so. The description sounded promising. Unfortunately it didn't read well. I found the characters frustrating, the plot seemed to bounce around with situations added that did nothing for the story line or characters.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rebecca Roberts?

    Yes, the narrator did a fine job.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, no curse words and no breaking for sex on every other page.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book it's a cozy mystery with a religious tone to it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Traci Tyne Hilton? Why or why not?

    I would for a light read. I crochet and love books so books on tape are perfect I have a large taste in genres however I am not one that follows most series books so would I buy a second of this series probably not.


    What three words best describe Rebecca Roberts’s performance?

    Nice. gentle voice. and easy flow.


    Could you see Good, Clean, Murder being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Honestly? no


    Any additional comments?

    Just if your looking for a fluffy cozy mystery book with religious under tone this is a good book

    "Poor ending"
    Where does Good, Clean, Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story itself was good right up until the end. It seemed like the author wanted to end the story and just did. Hated the ending. felt like a lot was missing and it left you hanging. Maybe it was the "leave them wanting more" theory.


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca Roberts – was your favorite?

    Jane


    Who was the most memorable character of Good, Clean, Murder and why?

    Jane

    Would you listen to Good, Clean, Murder again? Why?

    It was beautifully written with good solid Christan principles, emphasising that God will never abandon us. The narrator was good too. I definitely want to read the next in the series.


    What other book might you compare Good, Clean, Murder to and why?

    The books from Authors like Liz Whil, Terri Blackstock, and so many more awesome Authors who write good, clean, unswearing, non-blasphemous, stories that are thoroughly intertaining and teach us many Christian principles ,

    "very good christian murder mystery!"

    I love a good comfy murder mystery, and this is a very good one. It's rare and delightful to have a protagenist that is struggling to live her life by the will of God and in His service.
