    I absolutely loved this book!

    It's a page turner that kept me guessing along the way. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, because this one kept me very entertained.

    It was a good story but.....

    weird in its own way.

    A main character that has devoted her own home business to cleaning up crimes scenes. Crime scenes that specifically focus on suicides and murders. But if that is not odd enough, the main character "Sadie" can communicate with those departed "ghosts" that have been murdered and help them along to a more restful place. But Sadie can't see those that commit suicide...but why?

    So Sadie becomes involved in the mystery within each of her crime scenes.

    It makes for an interesting yet a different type of mystery story. It seemed gross at times while you read but it was also sad.

    I would recommend this book! It was different and well written.

    A Wonderful Read

    The characters are dysfunctional and yet connecting. The premise is original and well thought out. I read it so fast i had to order the second book because it was such a fun read.

    This is a breezy paranormal mystery filled with witty at times graveyard dry dialog

    When her brother committed suicide five years ago, Sadie Novak was the one who cleaned out his house in order to spare her parents the pain. Immediately afterward, she quit her teaching position to open up Scene-2-Clean, a firm that performs crime scene cleanups in the Seattle area. She gains immense satisfaction from her work because she saves the victim¿s family from the trauma of performing the difficult deed, which can include blood splattered seemingly everywhere. Sadie also has another ability that gives her in some ways even greater satisfaction. She meets the ghosts who were killed in the house and helps them pass on.---------------- Her current assignment is the Toth residence where a murder suicide occurred. There she meets Kent Lasko who she assumes is a ghost. Instead she learns he was a friend of the couple and then she wants to know why he was in the house. He explains that he came to retrieve a piece of jewelry that belonged to his mother that he gave to the victim he also says he was having an affair with Trudy Toth. Not long afterward, Grant Toth¿s mother claims a piece of jewelry is missing and the police find it on Sadie. She believes Kent planted it and this makes her wonder why as she postulates whether he was involved in the two deaths. She begins an investigation that leads to her being shot at twice which makes her dig all the deeper.--------------------- This is a breezy paranormal mystery filled with witty at times graveyard dry dialog inside a fascinating yet foreboding plot. Sadie is an amateur sleuth who never quits whether it is cleaning a place or investigating a crime. Her associate Zack Bowman is a disgraced ex-cop although they have never kissed there is a strong attraction between them. The whodunit is cleverly executed with the heroine obtaining help from Zack and Trudy¿s ghost who want the truth known by identifying their killer.--------- Harriet Klausner

    Great start to a series.

    I like Sadie's attude. She has a no nonsense way about her except when it comes to her love life. I hope Marva comes back. I can't wait to find out more, much more about Sadie's partner.

    A page-turning mystery with a stunning ending!

    Wendy Roberts has done it again. She is an expert at spinning a tight mystery laced with humor. The only thing you will be disappointed about with this book is the fact that you'll have to wait until December 2008 to follow more of Sadie's adventures. In the meantime, pick up Dating Can Be Deadly, Ms. Robert's debut, to tide you over. ps- You might not want to read The Remains of the Dead while snacking! :)
