On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is…different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, “normal” is a bit of a stretch for Dina.
And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night….Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

I decided to try the audible version of CLEAN SWEEP because I had just bought a Bluetooth headset for my phone. I would listen to this on my way to work, home man’s walking into work to clock in. Listening to Renee Raudman read this book brought the characters alive. Ilona Andrews brought this world alive, and the characters were well-developed. The storyline was awesome. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Dina Demille is an Inn Keeper. She runs the Inn for the supernatural, and when people and animals come up murdered, she knows that she has to find out who is doing it. I also love the verbal exchange by Dina and Sean Evans is really funny. There was one part where Sean kisses Dina, that had me laughing. Here is a quote from the book.
“Kissing Sean Evans was like drinking a shot of the strongest liquor in the world while it was on fire.”
If you have not read it I urge you to do so. I give CLEAN SWEEP 5/ 5 stars.
