The case of real life being nothing like TV. Like, at all. Nada. None. Zero.

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 thoughts: I love Christy Barritt's books and this has to be my favorite series by her so far. Joey is just so adorably clueless and so funny and I laughed out loud like three times in the first chapter alone.  She is one of the few authors who makes me laugh. 

In BLOOPER FREAK Joey's friend Gabe has gone to South Carolina to get away from some friends who are a bad influence. But when a man witnesses a murder, the murderer he describes is Gabe!  Gabe is arrested but pleads innocence, but Joey isn't sure if she can believe him or not. He lied about going to South Carolina! 

When another murder occurs another local bad boy is framed and the police begin to realize maybe someone else is getting away with murder. But a misguided fan is offering vague clues and Joey scrambles to figure them out to find the real killer and free her friend Gabe. 

If you like cozy mysteries, you will love Christy Barritt.  Don't miss any of the books in this series:  

Ready to Fumble
Reign of Error
Safety in Blunders
Join the Flub
and Flaw Abiding Citizen. 

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
