ARC Book review: The Hitwoman and the 7 Cops (Maggie Lee #7)
Available now! ebook ARC provided by author.
All reluctant hitwoman Maggie Lee really wants is to have a calm, normal life.
She doesn’t want to go around killing people for money.
She doesn’t want her sister to be terrified of her ex-pimp.
She doesn’t want her Dad to disappear from the Witness Protection program.
But Maggie rarely gets what she wants.
Instead, she finds herself trying to keep everyone out of trouble.
With the help of her ragtag team of supporters: her semi-psychic friend, a handsome, charming con man, her almost-lover cop/hitman mentor, her curious Southern Belle cat, her haughty lizard, and her sweet, but dumb Doberman, Maggie does her best to stay a step ahead of Law Enforcement, while helping those she loves.
But will Maggie end up being the one who needs to be saved?
Maggie Lee's journey continues in The Hitwoman and the 7 cops. When i got this book i wondered how the heck 7 cops would be involved and pictured a group of 7 but it turns out that's not the case. Maggie can't seem to catch a break. No matter what it seems like every day is fraught with some craziness be it her aunts, her friends or her murder bosses. In this book it seems everyone is out to cause havoc and throw some some begging, or just plain hard persuasion and even some guilt to get Maggie to help them with something. Maggie is pulled in several directions at once and has to do a lot of juggling to get through it all. Thankfully she gets bit of help from her friends. As in all the books in this series there is a lot going on and many funny moments and well as some teary moments. I can't never figure out where the author is going until i actually get there so that always makes for a interesting reading. There are lots of appearances by cops in this book at least 7 of course but you will have to read the book to see where they all come into play. Very clever Miss Lynn. I hope to see more of Patrick , Maggie's murder mentor and almost lover in the next book. The biggest question is will they ever really get together!! Arrrggghh!! Everyone wants to know and is so when!???
