eARC Book review: The Hitwoman and the Sacrificial Lamb (Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman #12) by J.B. Lynn
eARC provide by author for review
Some jobs are more challenging than others.
Take for example, Maggie’s latest assignment: assassinating a heartless, indiscriminate sniper. He deserves to die, but making that happen is tricky, especially considering that a certain red-headed police detective has been assigned to protect him.
And that’s not the only job Maggie has.
She’s struggling to find a way to communicate with her pets and care for her orphaned niece, while searching for information about her sister who disappeared years earlier. An investigation that puts her in harm’s way.
Maggie struggles to do all her jobs, while contending with her nutty family, vague psychic predictions, an unexpected chicken, and a complicated romantic relationship.
Is she up for the challenge? Or will one mistake cost her everything?
The continuing saga of Maggie. This is why i keep coming back for more. Maggie is the most unexpected person. With each book she learns more about herself and her family while she tries to figure out her future. It seems like her life is always on go go go! There are so many secondary characters in this series but frankly i don't have to much trouble following them all. If they haven't appeared in a while it doesn't take long for me to say...."Oh yeah" with a laugh. Maggie, if you have been reading the books has always been able to speak with her animals. She's lost that ability and is frantically trying to find a way to get it back. Unfortunately nothing seems to be working. I hate that she can't speak to them. After so many books listening to what the animals have to say i find it frustrating as a reader to not be able to hear them anymore. Hoping she can figure out soon but there is no way i can guess how the author is going to come up with a way. That's one of the best things about this series you are always guessing where the author is going. Where the twists will come. It's what i believe keeps the series fresh. None of these books takes days to read so anyone can still book up book one and enjoy the series and get caught up quickly. Exciting and funny and engaging and a quick enjoyable read! Leave ya smiling even when there is a little cliff hanger at the end. You never have to wait to long for the next book.
