ARC Book review: The Hitwoman and the Poisoned Apple (Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman #8) by J.B. Lynn
eARC Provided by author
How do you solve a murder when the victim is still alive?
Maggie Lee’s murder mentor (and almost lover) Patrick Mulligan wants her to find out who poisoned him before it’s too late. Keeping the man she loves alive would be hard enough if all she had to worry about was not getting caught, but nothing’s ever that simple.
In between dealing with her strung out cat, searching for Patrick’s poisoner, meeting a deadline to deliver a mysterious gift for her mobster boss and keeping a curious reporter on his toes, she finds herself entangled in the complicated (and potentially dangerous) romantic affairs of her Aunt Susan and her semi-psychic friend Armani.
Hearts and lives are in peril.
Can the kooky, klutzy assassin save them?
Can i just say OMG! OMG!! If you haven't read this series you should. You have to be ok with a cliffhanger ending but the author doesn't make you wait to long for the next book in the series. I have read all the books in this series and it takes usually the first chapter to suck me in. The main character Maggie Lee has been drawn into the world of being a assassin of sorts to pay for the care her orphaned niece healthcare needs. That's how the series starts. Since then she's been in all kinds of crazy situations and this book isn't any different. In the last book Patrick her murder mentor and the married man she is in love with is poisoned. This book she is tasked with finding out who poisoned him, deliver a package to a lady in the same mental hospital her mother is in per her mobster boss and dealing with her friend Armani and her new boyfriend who rubs her the wrong way. The woman should be a excellent juggler dealing with all the craziness around her. JB Lynn knows how to draw you into her stories. Although there are some serious situations going on she twists it around to add humor as well. Even as a i am bracing for what might be coming more times than not i end up smiling or laughing and then she grabs be by the throat with her almost climactic cliffhanger endings. At that point there might be a curse or two from me. Possibly, Ok probably! As always i am looking forward to the next book!
