Blooper Freak by Christy Barritt

Series: Worst Detective Ever # 5
Genre: Mystery/Suspense
Publisher: River Heights
Released: October 20, 2017
229 pages
About the Book:
Real life is nothing like TV.

Joey Darling, actress and detective by default, is reminded of this point daily. If only problems could be solved in sixty minutes, complete with commercial breaks, closing credits, and a catchy theme song.

Joey accompanies Detective Jackson Sullivan to a crime scene, only to discover she knows the victim. After a friend is accused of murder, Joey can’t refuse her help—however bumbling it might be. Unfortunately, she only seems to dig up more questions instead of desperately needed answers.

When a misguided fan offers clues, Joey discovers something much deeper than a single crime. But can she sort through all the various story lines to get to the truth? Or will one blooper after another put not only the investigation in jeopardy but her life as well?

My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟  (4 stars)

“Stuff doesn’t make you happy.
It’s the people in your life that make the difference.”

Another great addition to the Worst Detective Ever series. Joey is just as entertaining as ever, I absolutely loved her inner thoughts. The time spent entertaining herself at the crime scene made me really laugh. Zane has been accused of murder and Joey doesn’t believe he did it, so she is determined to search for answers. In typical Joey fashion, she end up putting herself in danger a couple of times, but thankfully there is always someone looking out for her (even if one of those people end up being her stalker). I haven’t really been much of a Zane fan, but even I didn’t want to believe that he could be a murderer. There were twists thrown in that kept me guessing who was behind everything. The ending left Joey with some tidbits about her parents that should help with solving the case of her missing father. Each character is unique and I enjoy spending time with them. I am team Jackson and hope for the best going forward. Thankfully we only have to wait a month for the next book to see where her search takes her next.

“I like you because of you. You make me laugh. You make me want to pull my hair out . . . you make me look forward to each new day.”

(I received this book free from the Ms. Barritt; opinions expressed in this review
