Organized Grime by Christy Barritt

The second book in the Squeaky Clean series, Suspicious Minds, won the 2009 Daphne de Maurier award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense. Christy lives in Virginia with her husband and two sons.

From the book’s back cover
Crime scene cleaner and wannabe forensic investigator Gabby St. Claire knows her best friend, Sierra, isn't guilty of killing three people in what appears to be an ecoterrorist attack. But Sierra has disappeared, her only contact a frantic phone call.

Crime scene evidence Gabby discovers while cleaning tie seemingly random murders together--and point to Sierra as the guilty party. Just what has her animal-loving friend gotten herself into?

If that's not disturbing enough, who's the person following Gabby? A federal agent who hopes Gabby will lead him to Sierra? Or someone with more sinister plans?

To find Sierra and prove her innocence, Gabby will have to rely on all of her training and abilities, plus the help of a man she loves and the protection of a God she's only recently begun to believe in. 

From Jo 
If you enjoy reading mysteries, this book is for you. While trying to prove her friend innocent of all charges, Gabby follows every lead, some good, some dead ends. Well written, suspenseful, develops Gabby’s personality quite well. You won’t have this one figured out till at the very end!

    1. Pamela, yes the winner will have a great book. You sound good at mysteries so maybe you will figure it out, but you still have to continue reading because you'll want to know all about Gabby.
