ARC book review: The Hitwoman's Downward Dog (Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman #9) by J.B. Lynn
eARC provided by author for review
So many men….so little help.
Maladroit hitwoman Maggie Lee has never been one to ask for help. But now she’s found out that her niece, Katie, will soon be discharged from the hospital--making Maggie her guardian not just in name--and her semi-psychic friend Armani Vasquez has been kidnapped. Suddenly Maggie could really use some help.
While her crazy, but lovable, aunts are ready to help out with Katie, none of the men in her life are willing (or able) to lend a hand to save Armani. With both cops and bad guys telling her not to go after Armani alone, she knows the smart thing to do, would be to listen to them. But Maggie’s not the type to abandon those she loves.
Even with Patrick, Maggie's murder-mentor and almost-lover, and her old friend Zeke, out of the picture, Maggie’s not desperate enough to bring herself to involve crime reporter Jack Stern in her quest.
Armed with only Armani’s cryptic clues, and assisted by her snarky lizard, her dumb, but extremely loyal dog, and a one-eyed cat, Maggie decides to take on whoever's taken Armani.
Will the lack of human help prove to be her undoing?
Or will a special guy come through for her in the end?
Maggie Lee is at it again in the newest installment in the Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman series by JB Lynn. Seems like a day doesn't go by without a little drama for Maggie. She finds out that her beloved niece Katie is going to be coming home soon from the hospital and the reality of her life comes crashing down on her. All her doubt about if she can really take care of the girl and her life as a hitwoman make her worry about the future. Then her friend Armani is missing and no one knows where to find her and she can't seem to get any help. A new guy in Maggie's life crime reporter Jack Stern seems to pop up everywhere she goes. She's not sure if she can trust him but he seems to generally be concerned about her and offers to help if she can accept it. This book has all of Maggie 's charm and craziness along with her menagerie of talking animals who are always willing to help. She seems to juggle her aunts, her men, her animals and come to the rescue of Armani although it's never as smoothly as she would like. A bit of a thriller you can actually laugh at while reading. If you want to read a series that full of laughs and craziness start right here with this series.
