Publisher's Summary

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is...different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, "normal" is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night....Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans - an alpha-strain werewolf - and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

    "A MUST LISTEN. Promising start for a new series."

    I put off reading the Kate Daniel's series by husband and wife writing team, Ilona Andrews, for years for a reason that I can not recall. The series is now one of my favorites, and their new Innkeeper series is off to a very promising start. Intelligent, likable characters portrayed in a believable world of fantasy, what is there not to like? Really, really looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

    If you like Urban Fantasy, you must check out the work of this talented writing team. AND let's not forget Renee Raudman, she is an awesome narrator! She makes the characters come to life as if you are overhearing a conversation, not having someone read you a story!

    "Another great book from Ilona Andrews!"
    Would you listen to Clean Sweep again? Why?

    Great book, interesting story. A unique melding of science fiction and paranormal. Can't wait to read more book set in this world


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Clean Sweep?

    I really enjoyed the ending, lath ough I was sad it was done, everything wrapped up wonderfully yet left things open for more books.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator did a good job, my only issue was sometimes her voice was so soothing it almost put me o sleep


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Another Winning Series from Ilona Andrews"

    This is an excellent beginning to a new series. I love the concept of an extraterrestrial/supernatural innkeeper and this first book tells me the Gordons have many entertaining adventures in store for us. I had my husband listen to the antics of Beast, the über Shih Tzu, and we both laughed out loud. To me, Renee Raudman has the perfect voices for Ilona Andrews' characters and she does not disappoint here. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

    "Definatly worth getting."
    Where does Clean Sweep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd say top 20. And i even gave it 5 stars so definately good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Clean Sweep?

    When Dina was messing whit Sean i was laughing so hard my coo worker who walked past me at the time just looked at me.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have. She has read many of Ilona's work, Kate Daniels and Steel Edge series if memory serves and she delivers everytime, even if she can get abit dramatic its never put me off the series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most assuredly. And I did listen all day at work, then while i was working out after work and while making dinner at home. So eccept for a few interactions whit collegues / friends I've listened trough it all in one go.


    Any additional comments?

    If you ever read some of Ilona Andrews other works --> Kate Daniels or Steel Edge and liked them this if for you. She somehow manages too get the badass female protagonist down everytime and too top it makes it funny and believeable. I especialy liked how she made the universe in this series.

    "New Twist"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Clean Sweep to be better than the print version?

    Not sure


    What other book might you compare Clean Sweep to and why?

    It falls in the same line as the Magic bites series. Plausible with the amount of "Facts" they lay out. Always entertaining.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really like Ms. Raudman but you can tell who she is pulling for as the romantic lead with the voices she gives the men.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really but it did make me cringe which was intended so I call that a win.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author/s and wish they could just pluck the story fully formed from their brains so we can get them faster. I'm just greedy like that.

    "story a bit slow"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator spoke slowly but I kept thinking she was an older woman, and it sounded not as interesting to me personally. I would recommend a more sparkly voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sean the wolf and the beast the dog, They kept my interest,


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman?

    I don't know someone that sounds young and vibrant


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The book was okay, I found myself doing other things while I was trying to listen to it. It for me was not exciting like wayward pines, kind of a let down

    "Shows potential, but writer needs training/polish"
    What did you like best about Clean Sweep? What did you like least?

    The Inn was my favorite part, actually. I thought it was very intriguing how it moved and shaped. The alien aspect made it a little too left field.


    Would you recommend Clean Sweep to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, or to give it a try, but read it rather than listen to it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was pretty bad. The MC is a blonde white girl living in TX. The narrator made her sound like a cliche black creole woman in New Orleans. All the characters were annoying, which made the romance and interactions not come across the way I'm sure the author intended.


    Did Clean Sweep inspire you to do anything?

    Go find more stories about B&B's.


    Any additional comments?

    The story probably would have been more enjoyable with a better narrator. I was able to finish the story, but yells of "OMG BAD NARRATION!" were heard throughout. If there's to be more books following this one, I don't care enough to read them, though.

    "Totally entertaining"

    As usual Ilona Andrews has written another winning story, and Renee Raudman does an excellent job at bringing it to life. We have yet another hidden world to keep track of with an Innkeeper for aliens needing a neutral ground to land on for a while. A very entertaining story with it's usual Andrews humor, a touch of romance, along with life threatening creatures that give our heroine a run for her money. It's left open enough for a sequel to sneak in, and I'm certainly hoping that will happen.

    "So much fun!"

    This is so cute and fun. Really enjoyed it and I can't wait for the next one. It's especially well done on Audio as Renee Raudman does a really nice job as she does with all their stories.

    "A Slow Read"

    I found this book so slow, calm and uneventful. The world and characters was limited, as well as the story. Throughout the book, you have a feeling that there is a prequel or otherwise necessity for an explanation as the characters and their circumstances. It's not that it was so dry and boring, it's just that it was slow.

    Having read a range of other sci-fi books, this one lacked sufficient imagination and the allure of sci-fi books in general. I've attempted to read other books by this author and I have come to the conclusion that her style is not appealing to me. And as for the narrator, her slow monotone and slight twang make the book even slower. I gave the book 3 stars only because somehow, I was persuaded to read/listen to it till the end (i.e. finish it).

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A good story as always with Ilona Andrews. I have not found a bad book by this author so far.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the book it's tone is rather like 'The Edge Series' the tone of the book and the mellowness of the main character.

    "Meh !"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This turned out to be more sci fi than fantasy.


    What could Ilona Andrews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Great idea but just not enough detail
