Publisher's Summary

Bailey inherits her grandfather's business, Maid For You, but cleaning up dead body parts wasn't part of the job description. Bailey hopes to wipe out crime with the help of Nate, her computer hacker assistant, despite protests of their involvement in the case from Detective Max Wellington.

As the threads of deceit unravel, the murders begin to break out like a case of Bubonic Plague. Bailey uncovers deception, corruption, and a few secrets that may forever change her life.

Bailey is a Christian, struggling to keep on the path she knows is right, fighting the temptation of the hunky Detective Max Wellington, who would like nothing more than to take her into protective custody, for more than just interfering in police business.

MAID FOR MURDER - CUTE!

I enjoyed this book very much. I found it cute and funny. I had fun listening to it and felt like I was on a scavenger hunt with Bailey trying to find the murderer. I will be listening to book 2 and recommend this book to anyone who loves a good who done it with humor.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the first book in the Maid for Murder series written by Susette Williams and narrated by Allyson Voller. Bailey inherits her grandfather's business, Maid For You, but cleaning up dead body parts wasn't part of the job description. Bailey hopes to wipe out crime with the help of Nate, her computer hacker assistant, despite protests of their involvement in the case from Detective Max Wellington.
As the threads of deceit unravel, the murders begin to break out like a case of Bubonic Plague. Bailey uncovers deception, corruption, and a few secrets that may forever change her life.
The narrator Allyson Voller did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Christian Evanovich Knock-off.

Any additional comments?

This is a fun, light, madcap story. Bailey is a zany main character who suffers from intrinsic curiosity that is constantly getting her into trouble. The plot is well-written with several twists and turns. The narrator gives a very good performance and really brings the characters to life.

The Christianity in the story is shallow and really more an add-on than an innate part of the story. The author apparently views Christianity as mostly going to church, and not smoking or gambling. It does not penetrate the character in any real way.

The author attempts to answer why Christians do not marry non-Christians, but because she does not seem to understand real love vs. infatuation, or that Christians view marriage as an avenue to serve God--a sacrament (They marry because they can serve God better together rather than separately), her answer rings hollow. However, it is a fun, entertaining book that is relatively clean. It has a good murder mystery that keeps you in suspense while keeping the mood light. The narrator is great. Definitely worth listening to.

Love this book!

Where does Deadly Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have added this to my favorite reads. Books that I read over again and again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bailey. She is quirky, funny, nosey, and always in trouble.

Which character – as performed by Allyson Voller – was your favorite?

Can't decide...Allyson did such a good job on each character. Loved them all.

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

Had several good Belly Laughs. Such a fun book! I Love the lighter side of Mysteries.

Any additional comments?

A must read for anyone that likes the light side of mysteries!

Deadly Business

Deadly Business: Maid for Murder, Book 1
: Susette Williams

I have read other books by this author, but this is the first in a new series. A clean cozy mystery featuring a young woman that inherits a business from her grandfather. She discovers bodies and meets hunky cop, and the adventure begins. She tries to keep to her morals but can't help but snooping. There are unexpected twists as more deaths occur. We get a bit of romance and humor to keep the listener hooked.The ending leads to the next book. I look forward to the next book.


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed, Allyson Voller.

Entertaining - well-done audio

The Sound quality was very good. The narrator did an excellent job of conveying the ditzy heroine. Bailey is a girl who claims Christianity but has no sincere faith of her own. She lives barely within a set of rules instilled by her parents, skating as close to the edges as possible while still regarding herself as a good Christian girl. She's full of "I can't do this or that," but she continually and openly (and continually and openly and continually...) raves about the physical attributes of the hero, sharing a bit TMI about her personal physical reactions to him. Lots of kisses that stop barely short of going too far. She strings him along while pushing him away with protestations of her inability to have a relationship with him. He doesn't seem to have much character of his own but drifts along, accepting her behavior. This situation continues through the second book, which is a short story/novella. In that one, she makes a bargain with God - she will start going to church if she survives.
The good part of this is that the author has set the stage for the heroine to be saved, establish her own faith and grow spiritually into her own convictions in the rest of the series. I think that will be good!
The mystery was a little confusing to me and the ending was abrupt. I listened to the audiobook.
I feel like this author was trying to do a "Christian" version of Janet Evanovich's books.
Overall, it is an entertaining read (listen), and I look forward to seeing the heroine's development in the rest of the series.

Great story line

This is the first i have read by this author. I loved the story line and the characters. It had a lot of twist and turns. I want read/listen to more. I would like to know if Bailey;s grandfather is really dead and if she and Max get together. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Very funny, A good mystery.

A very funny and entertaining mystery with a hint of romance.
I loved the characters especially Bailey and Max. Bailey is a very quirky character who has a habit of getting into trouble. Max is adorable as the detective and her love interest. I'm hoping Bailey gets over her narrow minded view that she can't date Max because he isn't a Christian. They make a good team.
The side characters also provided lots of humour and I hope to see more of Max's work colleagues and Bailey's friend Nate.

I look forward to reading more in this series.
