Confessions Blog Tour (Giveaway) with Author JB Lynn : Meet Hitman /cop Patrick Mulligan!



Book 1: Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman
Maggie Lee is not your average hitwoman. For one thing, she's never killed anyone. For another, after hitting her head in the car accident that killed her sister, her new best friend is a talking lizard--a picky eater, obsessed with "Wheel of Fortune," that only Maggie can hear.
Maggie, who can barely take care of herself, is desperate to help her injured and orphaned niece get the best medical care possible, so she reluctantly accepts a mobster's lucrative job offer: major cash to kill his monstrous son-in-law.
Paired with Patrick Mulligan, a charming murder mentor (who happens to moonlight as a police detective), Maggie stumbles down her new career path, contending with self-doubt, three meddling aunts, a semi-psychic friend predicting her doom, and a day job she hates. Oh, and let's not forget about Paul Kowalski, the sexy beat cop who could throw her ass in jail if he finds out what she's up to.
Training has never been so complicated And, this time, Maggie has to get the job done. Because if she doesn't . . . she's the mob's next target.
Book 2: Further Confessions of Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman
Take three wacky aunts, two talking animals, one nervous bride, and an upcoming hit, and you've got the follow-up to JB Lynn's wickedly funny Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman
Knocking off a drug kingpin was the last thing on Maggie Lee's to-do list, but when a tragic accident leaves her beloved niece orphaned and in the hospital, Maggie will go to desperate lengths to land the money needed for her care.
But the drug kingpin is the least of her worries. Maggie's aunts are driving her crazy, her best friend's turned into a bridezilla…and a knock on the head has given Maggie Dr. Dolittle abilities—she can talk to animals. Unfortunately, they talk back.
It's just another day in the life of this neurotic hitwoman…

About the Author:
Besides being a writer, JB Lynn is a compulsive reader, a runner (of sorts), an enthusiastic cook (who doesn't get the appeal of the Food Network), and someone who has an irresistible urge to eavesdrop at all times.
JB has a great love of her husband, dogs, coffee, purple ink, spiral notebooks, running gear, hot showers, and '80s music. Given enough time, all of these things will eventually show up in her books.

Now Below meet Patrick Mulligan He's a cop and a hitman with a lot of things going on in his life. Secrets too. He's teaching Maggie all he knows about the business of being a hitman and a little more too. Below that is the details for the blog tour giveaway! Enjoy!!!

My name is Patrick Mulligan and I’ve been a pretty successful hitman for a number of years. I’m also a cop, so you should trust me.

I’m good at what I do because I follow the ___ rules. I’ve tried to teach them to Maggie Lee, but she hasn’t done well following them….but I like her anyway.


It’s a no-brainer, but one that’s tricky to pull off.

Maggie learned this one the hard way in CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN

You need to make sure you can never be connected to the kills you pull off. This means constantly changing your cell phones and vehicles. It means avoiding being witnessed with others that might be tied to the hit. It’s also helpful to have a secret place where you can store your weapons.


You don’t get paid for someone having a “near death” experience. You collect the cash only when a third party confirms your mark has expired.


Maggie totally disregarded this rule in FURTHER CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN and it got her in a lot of trouble.

I’ve found myself breaking my own rules when it comes to Maggie, which could get dangerous….
