I'm not really a private detective. I just play one on TV.
Joey Darling, better known to the world as Raven Remington, detective extraordinaire, is trying to separate herself from her invincible alter ego. She played the spunky character for five years on the hit TV show Relentless, which catapulted her to fame and into the role of Hollywood's sweetheart.
When her marriage falls apart, her finances dwindle to nothing, and her father disappears, Joey finds herself on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, trying to piece her life back together away from the limelight. A woman finds Raven - er, Joey - and insists on hiring her fictional counterpart to find a missing boyfriend. When someone begins staging crime scenes to match an episode of Relentless, Joey has no choice but to get involved.
Joey's bumbling sleuthing abilities have her butting heads with Detective Jackson Sullivan and kindling sparks with thrill-seeking neighbor Zane Oakley. Can Joey channel her inner Raven and unearth whodunit before she ends up totally done in? And where is her father anyway? Can she handle fame, or is disappearing into obscurity the wiser option?
Loved the Book. Loved the narration. Great Cozy mystery. Kept me guessing. Not a thriller, which I liked. Good for passing the time.
I have listened to many audio books and I loved this! I really enjoyed the book series when I read it, (hoping for more soon 😊) and when I had a chance to listen to it - I was thrilled! However, this narrator was amazing! I loved the book even more! I made several people listen to parts while I was enjoying it 😊
I loved the story so much. Barritt (author) has created an engaging world I never want to leave. The characters are truly interesting and I just want to know more. The narrator is top notch! I forget that it is one person performing; the characters are differentiated very well in an entertaining performance. Her reading style matched the main character spectacularly! I will totally listen again and problem continue listening to the rest of the series.
