Review: Grime Beat by Marji Laine

Grime Beat I had so much fun reading this story! It is classified as a novella and is the first in the Grime Fighters Novella Series. But, this is not a short story that will leave you feeling like it should have been more. The characters in Grime Beat are fully developed and I found the plot to be riveting.

The author did a great job of creating a mystery that is full of action and danger, laughable moments, a mysterious backstory for the heroine, likeable main characters, and a very tense plot. As I reached the end of the book, I felt satisfied with the outcome in Grime Beat, while at the same time excited to read future stories about Dani and Jay. I definitely recommend this novella to fans of mystery and suspense. (5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of Grime Beat from the author. I was not required to write a positive review.


Grime Beat

Her best friend missing, every cell in Dani Foster’s body screams something is wrong.

Crime scene cleaning is the perfect job for relocated Dani Foster. But her orders to maintain a low profile and stay out of trouble mean little when her friend goes missing. Suspicions point to the handsome crime scene specialist, Jay Hunter, but he’s also the only person willing to help Dani. Dare she trust him even when lies seem to surround him?

Dani amuses Jay. Her penchant for speaking and acting without regard to the consequences land her in the funniest situations. But her latest moves have thrust her into serious danger. As he learns more about her circumstances, the stakes rise until her very life is on the line. He has no time or inclination for romance, but this girl needs him, and she seems to have no one else. How can he turn his back?

This is the first episode of this Christian Mystery and Romance series set in Dallas, Texas. Dani’s troubles and Jay’s attraction are only just beginning!
