Review: Gaffe Out Loud (The Worst Detective Ever #7) by Christy Barritt

About the Book
Actress Joey Darling is beginning a new season . . . of her TV show and her life.

Joey Darling’s life is finally on track. Her hit series has been picked up by a new network, her relationship with Detective Jackson Sullivan couldn’t be better, and she’s even bought a house. But right after taking possession, Joey discovers a dead body upstairs.

Joey knows she won’t have any peace until she figures out why a dead woman was left at her house and who killed her. And she desperately needs peace as the “normal” life she’s trying to establish quickly progresses from great to the brink of collapse.

The countdown is ticking as Joey must soon leave to begin filming. But one gaffe after another slows her investigation and makes her question her choices. The closer Joey gets to answers, the more someone is determined to make sure this season of her life is canceled—permanently.

My Thoughts

Joey Darling is back in Gaffe Out Loud, the seventh installment of the hilarious Worst Detective Ever series. And oh my goodness, I am so glad she's back! I hadn't realized how much I'd missed her and all the rest of these quirky characters.

Everything's finally going great for Joey. She's got a wonderful boyfriend, her TV show was uncancelled and is about to start filming again, and she just bought a new house. Life is perfect...well... it was for a little while, but knowing Joey, nothing ever goes smoothly for long. The first day she's in her new house, she finds a woman murdered in one of the bedrooms. And as we all know, Joey's not about to stay out of it. She's gotta solve this murder herself!

Joey's still just as sassy, dramatic, and hilarious as ever! I laughed so much while reading this and seemed to have a perpetual smile on my face. This book was like a breath of fresh air. I was sad to see it end, but am very excited to find out what's gonna happen next. I highly recommend this series!
