    • You know a book will be pretty good when the first sentence is: "Whistling a tune from Fiddler on the Roof, I used my tweezers to work a piece of Gloria Cunningham's skull out of the sky blue wall." Gabby is hilarious! She has an insatiable curiosity for mysteries and finding out what really happened. She's never afraid to venture into scary territory in order to find her answers either. And let me tell you, she ventures all kinds of places and meets all kinds of people. When the building she's [...]


    • This was a free book from It was a hard mystery to read for a couple of reasons, the main character, Gabby, was really hard to like. She thought she knew "who did it" from the very beginning and wouldn't let anyone convince her otherwise. Her comments and thoughts were cheesy and annoying. Another reason I didn't like it was because it was a Christian mystery where beliefs in God were mentioned through out. I dislike reading things that seem to push beliefs upon you. I doubt I will read anymore [...]


    • I loved this book!! Unexpectedly funny!! I thought based on Gabby's profession it would be gruesome and I'm sensitive to blood but it wasn't bad at all. The only thing that kind if got on my nerves was how quickly and stubbornly certain characters would either leap to conclusions or disregard an obvious thing. I'm talking main characters. And Gabby is oh so dense in love lol. But likable characters (Sierra grew on me finally a little) and I can't wait for book 2!


    • Quick cute read that had me smiling throughout the book. The main character Gabby was relatable, and I really admired her. The only problem I had was the love triangle that manifested itself at the very end. Throughout the book I was secretly hoping it wouldn't happen, but it seems like that prayer wasn't answered. Quite honestly, I'd be more willing to continue the series if I didn't have to read about thedrama that love triangles bring. And in my honest opinion (view spoiler)[ we all know that [...]


    • This is one of those books, like The Art Forger, where I might not normally be interested in the situation, but the back text was so good at describing the setup it drew me in. Memo to those who are writing flirty, sassy, romancy novels: don't dish about the love interest, or obsess about the love triangle, or ask questions about How Will The Protagonist Ever Be Able To Resolve Her Problem And Work Things Out With The Love Interest? Serious eyeroll.Maybe the back text is better because this isn' [...]


    • Another freebie with my trial Prime membership. 2.5 stars overall. The idea is fascinating, a crime scene cleaner, the person who comes after CSI, who is a CSI-wannabe, solves crimes. The plot was decent, I honestly couldn't figure out who the murderer was until the final clue, but the ending was pretty formulaic and the reason for the murder was pretty lame. The love triangle was a bit strained, and I just couldn't believe a Christian man would be in a 4 year relationship with a model-like wom [...]


    • Christian fiction/mystery. My 1st time reading Christy Barritt and I was not disappointed. Her characters are likable and quirky. I found the details about Gabby's work as a crime scene cleaner interesting although there were a number of times you are shaking your head at her decisions. The ending was not a surprise but resolved in a satisfactory way. Recommend to those who enjoy a light read and don't mind a little gore. I will definitely continue the series, but I am not rushing out to grab it [...]


    • This was SO awesome!! I'm a sucker for spy/mystery's, so seeing a Christian mystery was a chance to good to pass up. I wasn't sure what to think of Gabby right at first. I mean, she has a rather morbid job of cleaning up crime scenes. But I was quickly swept up in Gabby's amazing humor. This book made me laugh out loud several times, which rarely happens. Though Gabby is not a Christian, this book really is incredibly clean. There was only one slightly crude joke in the book, and it was not bad [...]




    • The first installment of the Squeaky Clean Series, Hazardous Duty, definitely makes a splash - in blood. Christy Barritt introduces us to Gabby St. Claire, a college drop-out (with one semester to go in forensics, mind you) who cleans up crime scenes to support herself and her alcoholic father. Even though her circumstances don't sound all that rosy, Gabby is a vibrant character who you can't help but fall in love with and cheer for. Somehow, Gabby and her friends find themselves in the middle o [...]


    • If I had known this was going to be a book where Faith in God was going to suddenly be a Thing, I wouldn't have even bothered. Everyone has the right to his/her own beliefs, but I didn't appreciate having those beliefs shoved at me from out of (seemingly) nowhere. Aside from Gabby's having been sent from God in the eyes of her employee and his wife, faith really had no reason to be involved in this story. Aside from that, I didn't like Gabby. She was pretty annoying, really. She jumped to conclu [...]


    • A page-turner with likable characters. Fans of Janet Evonovich will love this author. Labeled a Christian mystery, it does not push the issue, but shows that it is humanity's free will that creates life's hurdles, not God. Gabby is a woman who knows hardship and disappointment. Most recently forfeiting a life as a forensic scientist to clean up crime scenes. Like Evonovich's character, she's smarter than some professionals, but continuously stumbles into trouble. Likewise, without turning on the [...]


    • Thanks for introducing me to this Squeaky Clean Mystery series, Dina. I loved this first book!Gabby St. Clair had to drop out of college on her way to a forensic's degree because of family and money problems. To stay as close to her chosen vocation as possible, she opened her own business- that of crime scene cleaner. I loved Gabby's character: smart and a bit sassy while not pretentious. So as she is cleaning blood and bones off a wall where a prominent senator's wide was murdered, she starts t [...]


    • I enjoyed this book and it was a quick read. The back story for the protagonist was believable, and I'm curious to see what happens to the characters at the series progresses. Having said that, the book did have some noticeable typos, especially towards the end, and the kind that made me have to read a sentence a couple times to try to figure out what was trying to be said. Also, I just didn't buy (view spoiler)[Gabby's obsessive fixation on Cunningham as the murderer. It turns out she was wrong [...]

One day while cleaning up a murder scene she uncovers the missing murder weapon, which proves the guy in jail did not kill the victim. With the help of her cute new neighbor Riley and suspicious Police Detective Parker, will Gabby be able to uncover the truth before she is the next victim? [...]


    • The plot was weak: the focus jumped all over the place and it even forced the main character, who is supposedly smart (khm), to behave like an intoxicated moth. *bzzzzzz* The dialogue felt forced and didn't offer anything of importance to the overall story. The characters are mere caricatures without even a semblance of charm. The main character, for instance, LOVESLOVES SCIENCE. We don't see it, though. At times, I wondered if author even knew what the term "science" conveys. Also, the feelings [...]


    • This is the first in the series and is as exciting and funny - maybe more so - than the others. It is different from other Christian cosy mysteries in that Gabby is not a Christian and she is actually qualified to investigate crime. She has the education without the job. She owns her own business - she is a crime scene cleaner. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a little romance and humor thrown in for good measure.


    • This book is a very humorous mystery. Christy does a good job in writing and keeping the reader interested in the story. I figured out about half way through who the bad guy was but I still wanted to read through to the end. Partly because I wanted to see where her love life went. Needless to say, gotta read the next book:) Nice novel though for someone wanting a nice cozy mystery.


    • Gabby St. Clair not able to finish her college education to become a forensic examiner, starts her own busines being a crime scene cleaner. The book is a page turner, but I have a problem with her removing evidence from the crime scene that the police missed. She was not working with the police in an official capacity, so legally, I wonder if that is correct.


    • Fast and fun mystery This was such a fun and quick mystery. It's easy to grow to love Gabby and try to figure out how she will manage to get out of, or help solve, her troubling issue.



    • Crime Started reading and didn't stop till I had read the whole book. I loved the characters handling forward to book two


    • Wonderful characters, intriguing mystery, and lots of laughs - what a great afternoon read. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. The characters are so adorable and unique.



    • Hazardous Duty is a totally different crime novel from any other that I've read, mostly because of the science element introduced. Really great book and definitely worth reading. :)



    • The mystery premise itself were ok. Gabby is a college dropout who now cleans crime scenes for a living. This is mostly an excuse for her to get near crimes and try to solve them. Which is what she attempts here. A prominent senator's wife has been murdered and investigation uncovers that the suspects, witnesses, and acquaintances alike have secrets. Gabby has been a self-professed armchair detective for so long (seriously, she gets her ideas from "Murder, She Wrote"), that when she finds some e [...]


    • What a fun read! Multiple times I grinned to myself, and had a couple of laugh out loud moments, while reading this Christian amateur sleuth mystery about a self-employed crime scene cleaner. Author Barritt created unique characters who all had one or more amusing traits, and I especially loved the main character Gabby because she was so witty, and loved to refer to popular song lyrics.One recurring part that cracked me up was how Gabby kept thinking of her vegan friend Sierra as a squirrel, aft [...]
