I'm not really a private detective. I just play one on TV. 

Joey Darling, better known to the world as Raven Remington, detective extraordinaire, is trying to separate herself from her invincible alter ego. She played the spunky character for five years on the hit TV show Relentless, which catapulted her to fame and into the role of Hollywood’s sweetheart. 

When her marriage falls apart, her finances dwindle to nothing, and her father disappears, Joey finds herself on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, trying to piece her life back together away from the limelight. A woman finds Raven—er, Joey—and insists on hiring her fictional counterpart to find a missing boyfriend. 

When someone begins staging crime scenes to match an episode of Relentless, Joey has no choice but to get involved. Joey’s bumbling sleuthing abilities have her butting heads with Detective Jackson Sullivan and kindling sparks with thrill-seeking neighbor Zane Oakley. Can Joey channel her inner Raven and unearth whodunit before she ends up totally done in? And where is her father anyway? Can she handle fame or is disappearing into obscurity the wiser option? Get Ready To Fumble your way through this enchanting new series.

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, READY TO FUMBLE is the first book in The Worst Detective Ever Mystery Series.  I love Joey. She is so sweet and clueless. I love Zane and I love Jackson. I can't decide who I want the hero to be, both of them have totally won  my heart. 

I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in this series to be released (this month!) Reign of Error. 

If you like cozy mysteries, you will absolutely adore READY TO FUMBLE. I can't say enough good things about it. A totally relatable heroine, even if she is a former movie star, an aunt, appropriately named Dizzy, two wonderful heroic heroes, and a mystery!  And no, I didn't guess who-dun-it. I had suspicions, but wow. In this bumbling fumbling cozy anything goes and things are not as they seem. 

Must read.
