Teresa S. Mathews Reviews Broom and Gloom By Christy Barritt

Broom and Gloom by Christy Barritt          
Book 9 of the Squeaky Clean Series    
Publisher River Heights Press
5 Stars*****

Once again talented author Christy Barritt leads us on a trail of mischief and mayhem with our favorite crime scene cleaner Gabby St. Claire. In this adventure Gabby feels the need to further her education of Crime Scene Investigation so she travels cross country from Virginia, to Oklahoma for a forensic convention. While there Gabby meets for the first time her soon to be stepbrother, Trace Ryan, an up and coming country singer, and that is when the adventure begins.

There is something about Trace that makes Gabby immediately like him, he is handsome, sincere and a wonderful singer, with just one flaw; he thinks he is being stalked by a crazy, murderous fan.

When Trace explains about his troublesome fan and how she might have had something to do with the disappearance of a young woman he had been dating. Gabby dives head first into what could well be her own crime scene. The more she investigates the more danger seems to follow her, from a mad charging bull to being trapped in a burning house to starring down the barrel of a gun. Will Gabby figure out who the real killer is before it's too late?

This Squeaky Clean Series by Christy Barritt is a true delight to this fan of mysteries and CSI shows. Gabby is bright, thinks fast on her feet, and has a great sense of humor. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading one of these exciting novels yet, follow this link to a free copy of the very first one;  Hazardous Duty and I promise you will want to read the rest of the series. Many thanks to Ms Barritt for creating this enjoyable series that's had me hooked from day one! 

You can find this treasure and others by Christy at Amazon


GIVEAWAY: We will be giving away an e-book of this amazing story to one blessed commenter!

  1. Enjoyed the review. I have not read anything by Christy Barritt before. This book sounds very interesting. The name Gabby St.Claire caught my eye as my maiden name is St.Clair (without the "e").

  5. I like mysteries. Most of the crime shows are a bit graphic and gory though. I like what you said a trail of mischief and mayhem.

    1. JAN you are right, some get pretty graphic but not CHRISTY'S books. You'll like GABBY, she's is a great character that truly does attract mischief and mayhem!! You have to feel sorry for her when that huge bull is chasing her, but don't let me give anything away, I want you to read that for yourself!! ;-) lol

  7. Thank you for that wonderfully enticing review, Teresa!!

    As Diana commented on her previous review, yesterday - you may make a suspense fan of me yet. "Broom and Gloom" doesn't appear to be a typical suspense novel - humor, charging bulls and romance too, lol!! It has a compelling "untypical" title also.

    Shared post!!
