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 truly enjoyed this book, but I confess, I had to purchase the print version because I couldn’t handle the narrator. I’ve listened to dozens of audio books and I’ve never had to do that before. Mispronunciations, page turns and a recording that on occasion sounded like she was in a cave.

I absolutely loved this set of books! The story is well written with enjoyable and well developed characters, and the narrator has a superb ability to bring them each to life. I am looking forward to the next books in the series, both to read and listen too.

This was a good, clean and inspiring book. My very adventurous nine year old daughter loved it! And I love that it is not only an enjoyable story, but that it teaches applicable lessons for her in her life and walk.
