Good, Clean Murder by Traci Tyne Hilton

Good, Clean Murder by Traci Tyne Hilton Purchase:

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good, clean, Christian story that involves suspense, a good bit of humor, and enough romance to keep things interesting.

    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 are 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.

    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!

    Review by Deanna L. Gottreu:

    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. Other times I could feel Jane’s frustration and pain. The mystery of the murders kept me guessing as to who murdered the couple and why, if they were murdered and did not die of natural causes.

    The romance in the book was handled in such a way that kept me cheering for Jane and the professor and many times their actions had me shaking my head or laughing at them. I really liked the way that the author kept Jane centered in her belief in God. With all the craziness that happened to Jane, she still took time each day for her quiet time with God and she truly believed that God would make a way. There were some surprises in the ending but it was a good ending.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good, clean, Christian story that involves suspense, a good bit of humor, and enough romance to keep things interesting.
