The Hitwoman Gets Lucky (Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman 2.5) by J.B. Lynn
A novella about the further misadventures of Maggie Lee and the rest of the cast of zany characters from CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN:
Maggie Lee’s a lot of things:
The daughter of a mom in a mental institution and a dad serving time;
The niece of three meddling aunts;
The aunt (and now legal guardian) of her beloved niece, Katie;
The friend of a snarky lizard, a dyslexic Doberman, and a semi-psychic co-worker;
A contract killer.
But one thing she'd never thought she'd be is a thief.
That's about to change as she heads to the casinos of Atlantic City to
help her sexy murder mentor, Patrick Mulligan, steal something from a professional thief.
Maggie's never been lucky in love or money. Will this gamble pay off or will she lose her shirt, her heart or even her life?
I've been reading this series since book 1.The Hitwoman Gets Lucky is a novella that goes with the series. A little glimpse into what's going on with Maggie while we wait for the next full book. JB Lynn does not disappoint. Maggie has a lot of stuff going on as it is but Patrick, her murder mentor wants a personal favor. He wants her to help steal something that might compromise him if it gets out. Of course God, the lizard has to tag a long to Atlantic City to do this favor and he is full of sass as usual. The title hints at Maggie getting lucky and you automatically think her and Patrick get together. I can't tell you if they will or not but it's a lot of fun guessing the whole way through. lol . JB Lynn has a way of making murder and in this case stealing serious business but funny at the same time with a twist of almost romance. You can sit down and read this in one sitting and come away with a smile on your face excited for book 3. 5 out of 5 stars for The Hitwoman gets Lucky by JB Lynn.
