Review: GOOD CLEAN MURDER by Traci Tyne Hilton

Jane is a goody-goody, God-lovin’ Christian housecleaner. A nice and naïve girl, she thinks that God can make everything perfect. Oh, Puhleeze!

Going to college for a ministry certificate was definitely wasteful. Seriously, who does that? Who believes in God that much? As you may have guessed it, I don’t. But that’s okay. I don’t have to believe in God to enjoy a good story, which this fell short of.

Jane’s struggle to make ends meet and pay her tuition is relatable. She’s a good girl, albeit annoying, with a compassionate heart.

The plot was slow to the point and there was too much talk on the bible. When Jane got evicted, I wondered if that was God’s “plan.” But when a successful burger mogul and his wife are found dead, she deems it her fate to help the grieving family and moves into their mansion. It was a heart attack that killed them, right? But what Jane hears behind closed doors may speak otherwise. Jane meekly listens and, in her introverted and prudent manner, follows the clues. She was no detective; she’s just a silly girl. Plus, the mystery was complicated and boring.
My rating: 2 stars
