Book Description

Award Winning Mystery from Best Selling Author Traci Tyne Hilton!

Living on her own for her first time, Bible school student Jane cleans houses to make ends meet. But being independent brings big trials, like falling for a handsome professor, dealing with an obnoxious roommate, and then there's the dead bodies...

Who knew being housekeeper to wealthy owners of a Roly Burger franchise would mean sweeping up clues to their death, while ministering to the needs of their heirs?

This is one big mess that Jane is intent on cleaning up before things get even worse.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Poor Jane, she is a typical 20 year old wanting to be independent, on her own, not asking for help. Problem is, though she is a good business woman managing her cleaning business and attending classes at her Bible school, she finds herself ankle deep in problems,drama and murder. The book flows easily, the characters are well thought out. I am looking forward to the next chapter in Jane's life and what lies ahead for her. This is an easy read and I did it in a weekend. I recommend it highly if you are looking for a "good, clean" mystery.

Jane tries to help with a crazy dysfunctional family (not hers) and deal with the potential blowup of all her future plans. Yes, everything can go wrong at once. But yes, you can also keep on keeping on while you solve a crazy mystery. "God will make a way" takes on a whole new meaning as Jane's adventures in housecleaning and college life go from heartbreaking to stomach churning to hopefully amazing. It's good, it's clean, and it's so much more!--Goodreads Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Clean Reading February 24, 2013
By Sherrie
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great book for anyone interested in a good, clean, and entertaining read. It is not too long or too short but just the right length to offer an afternoon of entertainment. The characters are complex in their needs and desires while simple enough to offer a few humorous situations that round off the story line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, Clean, Murder by Traci Tyne Hilton April 24, 2013
Format:Paperback
Good, Clean, Murder by Traci Tyne Hilton is an enjoyable book with murder, romance, and a young lady who seems to attract trouble like bees to honey. Jane is twenty, living on her own, and cleaning houses to pay for all her expenses. Her well to do parents would be happy to pay for her education but they would require her to attend a big university and she only wants to attend Bible College to prepare to be a missionary. At the beginning of the book she goes to her first house cleaning job for the day and when she goes into the master bedroom to get the sheets for the laundry she uncovers the owner of the house dead in bed. When the paramedics arrive, they find the wife in the bathroom and she is also dead. Were they murdered or did they both just happen to have heart attacks at the same time?

Jane attends college at night and on the first night of her last semester she learns that the class was canceled. A handsome, young, professor is teaching the class that is offered to take the place of the canceled class. Immediately there is an attraction between Jane and the professor but students are not allowed to date faculty and this lead to lots of problems for the pair. The solution to the problem is quite interesting and even funny.

Jane's roommate has not been paying the rent and has left town with Jane's half of the rent money after they were evicted. With no where to live and no money, Jane moves into the home of the murder victims to be a live-in maid for the son, daughter, and sister-in-law of the dead couple. Jane is determined to solve the mystery of the deaths and to minister to the son and daughter of the dead couple.

The author did a good job developing the plot and characters. The dialogue many times had me laughing out loud.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice premise but extremely poorly written February 8, 2014
By patti
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This could have been a good, maybe even a great, book. Unfortunately, the numerous, obvious flaws take it 180 degrees in the other direction.

First, the dialogue is so far from realist or believable as to be painful. It appears the book takes place in America, but the language and syntax is not "American". The use of words such as "snog" smack of the UK, not the US. Also, I teach at a college and am a Christian, and I don't know anyone -- students, my own college-age daughter and friends, my friends, etc. -- who talk like the characters in this book. The syntax is completely off much of the time.

The characters are also not believable. Not a one. In fact, these are some of the most poorly-drawn characters I've encountered in my reading life. Jane, in particular, is so unbelievable that I am amazed this book was accepted for publication in its present form.

There are major plot flaws. One glaring example is when the college president calls the main character's parents and shares with them what has happened regarding the main character's behavior and status at the college. This is in violation of federal law (and has been since 1973 (FERPA). His actions are also illegal in the UK (just in case that's where the book is set).

I love books, and it bothers me when someone publishes something as poorly written as this; I shudder to think of the people who are not book-lovers who will give this a try and be even more turned off by reading. If I could have given zero stars, I would have -- this is just that bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and clean January 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a specific genre that really appealed to me. Someone seeking to follow God and His will is put in a situation that others criticize her behavior. Kept me entertained and a little self-examination came up. Thanks, Traci!

It was a cute story, but the mystery is barely mentioned through most of the book. Also, the characters never seem to have any evidence to support their suspicions.
