I really liked all of the characters. Even though Joey is a famous actress, she was totally relatable and instantly likable. There seems to be a bit of a love triangle developing, so that will be interesting to see how it turns out. Zane or Jackson? Hmm... I don't know. The mystery was really great, too. I didn't figure it out until it was revealed. All in all, this was wonderful start to a new series and I can't wait to read the next one! I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys mysteries!
Christy Barritt's new series introduces Joey Darling, an actress who is being manipulated into taking on her most famous role -- TV P.I. Raven Remington -- in order to solve a murder. As with the Squeaky Clean Mysteries, the Worst Detective Ever debut, Ready to Fumble, features a mix of fun, mystery, and even a little romance.
Joey Darling is in Nags Head, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to find out why her father disappeared. Sure, she told him she never wanted to see him again, but she didn't mean it. So with her life at an all-time low, she's heads away from Hollywood, rents a place, takes a job as a cosmetologist, and starts digging into her dad's disappearance. However, before she makes any headway, a "client" comes into the salon where she's working and hires Joey to find a missing boyfriend.
Along the way Joey gets help from next door neighbor Zane Oakley and Nags Harbor Police Detective Jackson Sullivan. Both come across as potential romantic partners, but one is more than willing to help with her investigation and the other is more than willing to discourage those pursuits.
It's not long until Reign of Error -- Book 2 in "The Worst Detective Ever Mystery Series" is released. I can't wait!
Just plain fun(and funny) to read, it is so easy to sympathize with Joey. She may not know what she's doing, but she truly cares about people,and she can fake the know-how. Barritt makes the story especially interesting by creating a possible love interest triangle. Who will Joey choose? I imagine we will get several books into the series before we find out!
Faith, humor, romance, all contained in a cozy. It doesn't get any better that one penned by Christy Barritt. I highly recommend this series!!

I enjoyed this #1 in a Mystery Series where the main character stumbles along trying to find her missing father, which becomes the subsequent investigation of many. Joey, aka Raven in a TV Detective series suspended, for the time being, is looking for her father in his last stomping grounds and is pushed into another missing person's case.
Because of her TV persona, Joey listens to a woman's plight in finding her lover and reluctantly takes on the case, not for the money but the diversion. She jumps into the adventure which has its twists and turns, meeting two attractive eligible men in the events that lead to murder.
Joey's character is endearing and complicate, but understandably plausible. She uses her TV knowledge and experiences, i.e., she has a PI license and knows how to use a weapon, to help her move forward in reaching her goal.
Detective Joey/Raven's investigation ends in a place that the reader will want to know what comes next. When this happens, you know you have found a unique character and series.
I will come back to Joey's mysteries.
