Spotless, a novel by Camilla Monk

Spotless

Spotless series #1

Island Chaptal—nerdy IT engineer by day, romance novel junkie by night—just walked into her messy New York apartment to find Mr. Right waiting for her. No, wait…Mr. Clean.

A gentleman professional killer with a bad case of OCD and zero tolerance for unsorted laundry, March isn’t there to kill her…yet. He wants the diamond her late mother stole for a sinister criminal organization. Island agrees to help him find it, facing the kind of adversaries who dismember first and ask questions later. Good thing she’s got March to show her the ropes. And the guns. And the knives.

The buttoned-up Island is soon having a blast racing from Paris to Tokyo following the clues in her mother’s will, and for the first time, she’s ready to get close to someone. But falling for a hit man may be the very definition of loving dangerously.…

Praise for Spotless

The hilarious chapter headers—which I enjoyed as much as the rest of the book—set the tone of the book as one of over-the-top camp and a loving spoof of and homage to romantic suspense novels.

Spotless is a brilliantly written story with a difference. It crosses a few genres and brings something completely new to the table. It’s laugh-out-loud funny; it’s sweet and strangely romantic but in quite a unique way.

The characters were beautifully done; they are fully developed; they make you laugh with them and appreciate their wit and charm. A truly 5 star novel that deserves tons of attention.

If you’re in the mood for a jocular bit off center suspense with a dash of romance involving shady world organizations, the shady men and women who work for them, a broody caring OCD hitman, and a plucky heroine lost in the mix and falling love, then you must give this book a try.

Whiskey in The Jar Likes to Read

This book had so many parts to it that I couldn’t pinpoint exactly which part was my favourite. The beginning was hilarious, the middle was creepy bordering on psycho chicken, Hannibal grossness and the ending was action-packed, guns blazing fast.

Stacey is Sassy

This book blew me out of the water! There are so many things I can say about it but I don’t even know where to begin. I downloaded it on a whim and ended up staying up the entire night because I couldn’t put it down. The closest thing I can think of to compare it to is the movie Red with Bruce Willis. Monk is a very gifted writer who puts her own spin on a hitman romance.
