Where’s the director when you need him to call “cut”?

Just when Joey thinks she’s closer to answers about her father’s mysterious disappearance, more questions surface. The starlet is determined to find her dad and to put an end to the crazy stalker fan club trying to manipulate her decisions. But life has plot twists she can’t see coming.

Secrets abound - secrets from the most unlikely of people - and Joey’s had enough. She’s tired of flawed theories and abiding by other people’s rules. Doing what any good citizen would, she seeks resolution, knowing the stakes are higher than just herself.

Dangerous encounters meet the wannabe detective at every turn. As the end of one mystery draws close, it’s clear that Joey will either end up with the answers she seeks or find herself in the closing credits...for one final time.

Edge of my seat

I’ve been enjoying this series immensely, the story was fun and the performance was awesome. However, the author took this book to the next level. I couldn’t stop listening and I honestly had no idea what was going to happen next.

Answers...or just more questions...?

In Flaw Abiding Citizen Joey, and readers, finally get many of the answers they've waited so long to find out. But, sometimes those answers bring up even more questions...

I've enjoyed The Worst Detective Ever Mystery Series since the very first book. Every mystery, every quirky character, and every crazy situation that wonderfully flawed Joey finds herself stumbling into. I've ridden the highs and lows with her as she has searched for her dad, tried to straighten her life out, and has had two very different men in the wings, oh, and we can't forget that she has also stumbled over bodies at nearly every turn.

In some ways Flaw Abiding Citizen felt much like a satisfying conclusion to the series, but, as we know, author Christy Barritt still has more murder and mayhem in store for Joey and for readers. The story also had a slightly different tone to it, less cozy mystery and more romantic suspense, which I enjoyed.

I've read this book in print and now listening to it as an audiobook brought the story to life in a totally different way. I loved it! The production was top notch and the returning narrator, who sounds exactly Joey, was a perfect match! If you love The Worst Detective Ever Mystery Series don't miss this audiobook!
