Gabby St. Claire dropped out of school on her way to completing a degree in forensic science. Instead, she did the next best thing: she started her own crime scene cleaning business. 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 willing to do anything to keep Gabby quiet. With the help of her neighbor, Riley Thomas, Gabby plays detective. But can Riley help her before another murder occurs?

I didn't realize this was Christian fiction when I got the book. The story was good, I liked the characters but there were just too many references to God and whether you should believe in Him or not for me to really enjoy it.
But if that's what you enjoy when listening to books then you will probably enjoy this one.
More expression in the voice of the narrator. She reads almost every line in the same tone of voice.
Made the heroine a little less pushy. Or given her qualities which made up for it.
See above. More expression and more sense that the sentences flow into each other.
Umm.. none come to mind.
Change the narrator and I might buy the next one.
Overburdened by guilt and grief from the past, and frustrated by unfulfilled ambition, this Adult Child of an Alcoholic still manages to make life an okay place to be. She planned to work in forensic science, but has to make do with being crime scene clean up. Some of her attitudes and impulsiveness are characteristic, but that doesn't mean that she should be the target of attempted murder (more than once) or treated like a dimwit. She has some quirky friends, and there is romantic interest. Generally a really interesting read.
Janet Campus gives a great performance and adds much to already well delineated characters (pun intended).

This was a good story. I did not like the narrator because you could tell she had a piece of candy or something in her mouth. I would recommend buying this book and reading it instead of listening to it.
I have never written a negative review before but feel compelled to this time. This is a cute story, despite its unexpected - and unwelcome - religious subplot. However, the narrator's occasional stumbles and awkward mispronunciations (ogle rhymes with boggle? Seriously?) made the audiobook hard to listen to sometimes. Maybe I expected too much, but maybe this performance delivered too little.
