The case of the stunt double and a confused bad guy. Or something.

There’s no business like show business . . . especially when a killer is involved. Joey Darling’s local movie premiere was supposed to be a win-win for everyone involved. All the proceeds would go to the children’s wing at a local hospital, and the online buzz would create positive press for the area’s tourism. But things go awry when the event is sabotaged and Joey’s stunt double is seriously injured.

 Suspects seem sparser than quality G-rated movies, and police fear the intended target was actually Joey. Detective Jackson Sullivan and neighbor Zane Oakley—two men competing for Joey’s affection—insist on trading off guard duty until the bad guy is behind bars. To make matters even worse, Joey’s ex shows up right before the release of his tell-all book about his life with the Hollywood sweetheart. 

Someone seems determined to create real-life drama. But Joey isn’t one to be deterred. Though a movie-worthy villain wants to pull the plug on this production—and maybe even on a few people’s lives—Joey is determined that the show must go on.

My thoughts: JOIN THE FLUB is the fourth book in this series. Fans will want to read them in order to get the full story behind Joey,  Zane and Jackson. The books are: Ready to Fumble, Reign of Error, Safety in Blunders, Join the Flub, Blooper Freak, and Flaw Abiding Citizen. 

Christy Barritt is the Queen of funny, quirky, laugh-out-loud romantic suspense and cozy mysteries. This series is written in first person, so you know Joey's thoughts, but not the two potential heroes. The focus is more on the suspense than the slow moving romances. 

Who is behind this newest attack, and is Joey the target? I sort of figured out who-dun-it when this person was introduced, but I wasn't completely one hundred percent sure until the end when it was revealed. 

I absolutely LOVE this series by Christy Barritt and highly recommend it for those who love Cozy Mysteries. This series would be a great gift for a reader on your Christmas list.  Grab your copy of JOIN THE FLUB now. 

Stay tuned for my review of Blooper Freak coming later this month. 

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