Ready to Fumble by Christy Barritt

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? – Amazon synopsis

Ready to Fumble captivated me from the start. It was a fun and enjoyable read! I could not put it down.  The twists and turns throughout the book kept me guessing to the end. Christy Barritt did a great job creating believable characters. It’s hard to pick a favorite because they all have their unique personalities. Joey Darling is trying to figure life out and keeps getting thrown into challenging situations. It doesn’t help that she keeps getting mistaken for her tv persona.  I think the readers can relate to her and the many struggles and joys she goes through. I can’t wait to read more adventures of Joey!

I recommend this book to everyone.

I was provided a copy of this book from the author.  All comments are my own honest review.
