“Christy Barritt’s novel, Hazardous Duty, is a delightful read from beginning to end. The story’s fresh, engaging heroine with an unusual occupation hooked me, and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend Hazardous Duty.” (Colleen Coble, best-selling author)

"Captivating, entertaining, and downright funny, this book will keep you reading until the satisfying ending. Unique characters capture your heart and have you rooting for them from the beginning. Gabby St. Claire is truly a breath of fresh air." (Susan Sleeman, The Christian Suspense Zone)

"The next time you're tempted to watch CSI reruns, read this book instead! Spunky, sassy Gabby St. Claire sparkles in this new series. She'll keep you turning the pages." (Siri Mitchell, best-selling author)

"In this witty novel, chick lit meets mystery in the show-tune singing Gabby, creating a fun whodunit where you just don't know who killed the woman or which guy you like for the heroine. There's the changeable Detective Parker or the sweet guy-next-door-with-a-secret Riley for Gabby, and who but the would-be Senator husband would want the murder victim dead? Hazardous Duty will take you on a ride through twists, turns, quirks, acorn brownies, and spiritual questions that keep Gabby guessing. She's a character you're guaranteed to love, and the plot is entertaining and fast paced." (Roseanna White, Christian Review of Books)

Great Mystery

I couldn’t stop smiling! Never thought that mystery could be so entertaining.
Great job to both – author and narrator! Highly recommend!

Blasphemous

I cant listen to the blasphemy saying God doesn't exist and Jesus is a fairy tale. I was looking forward to a new series but this one is a no for me. Christians beware.

A page turner you can't put down

I read a lot of mysteries and it is a lot of fun when it can be weaved with humor and lovable characters. I have to read more about her struggle with God, her passion for truth, and to find out answers about her father and brother. I look forward to the next visit with this cozy mystery series.

A great surprise ... An AWESOME book!

After having listened to so many “bestsellers” and growing tired of the lack of virtues and values, I finally decided to search for a Christian book. Admittedly, I primarily just wanted to support the genre by purchasing while having faith (pardon the pun) that the book would be at least tolerable. And WOW was I pleasantly surprised! This book is a shining example of how the protagonist can be virtuous and the story can include references to seeking God without compromising the overall story. In many ways it is more authentic than the “bestsellers” in that we know people struggle with Christianity and their faith as they encounter obstacles in life so why not include it in the story?

An excellent start to a new series

This weekend I had to tackle my flowerbeds. I popped this story in and 6 1/2 hours later, my yard work is complete and I was surprised at how much I accomplished!

This is an excellent start to a new series. I love the fact that our protagonist isn't a librarian or in law enforcement. The cast of characters is well-rounded and I definitely want to know more!

Reba Buhr did a fabulous job with this story and keeping the listener engaged and wanting more.

Gabby St. Claire is just finishing up another day on the job, cleaning and disinfecting a home of a crime scene. It isn't glamorous or something you want to share over cocktails with new friends, but it pays the bills. Only, this current job, is turning out to be dangerous for Gabby and her friends.

I enjoyed all the twists and turns. I also liked the way the various story lines are developing. Christy Barritt wants to keep her readers on their toes and to expect the unexpected. I like it!

Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Clever

Very well written. Main character was a bit obsessive- and one or two cliches to remind the reader the author had intruded into the story- this would be my only disappointments. Overall an enjoyable who dun it.
