While You Were Sweeping by: Christy Barritt

While You Were Sweeping: A Riley Thomas Novella: A Squeaky Clean Spin Off by: Christy Barritt
Riley Thomas is trying to come to terms with life after a traumatic brain injury turned his world upside down. Away from everything familiar in his life—including his crime-scene cleaning ex-fiancĂ©e and his career as a social rights attorney—he’s determined to prove himself and regain his old life. But when he claims he witnessed his neighbor shoot and kill someone, everyone thinks he’s crazy. When all evidence of the crime disappears, even Riley has to wonder if he’s losing his mind.

Note: While You Were Sweeping is a spin-off mystery written in conjunction with the Squeaky Clean series featuring crime-scene cleaner Gabby St. Claire.

This short Novella is a great sneak peak into Riley’s life after his accident. Reading the squeaky clean mysteries we get Gabby’s side but not Riley’s. It was sad when they went their separate ways. This will help you to see why. I still have high hopes for Riley and wouldn’t mind seeing him and Gabby get back together some day. I liked to read his view and how he is trying to get thru his issues. It is hard to give reviews sometimes without spoiling the book….in the end Riley gets a good focus on his life and I see good things coming his way. I wouldn’t mind a spinoff of more Riley books! Even though it is short it is another great book by Christy and will help you gain a good opinion of Riley again, if you need one! J
