The Hitwoman Under Pressure is Here!
And I truly do love her books. Which is why I am totally excited for yesterday's release of The Hitwoman Under Pressure. It's the fifteenth book in her Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman series, and ya know, there's a reason why there are 15 of them. They're so good, people like me keep badgering her for more.
They all star Maggie Lee, the gutsy gal who would do anything for her niece - including taking contracts to kill people. Of course, all the people she's contracted to kill are really nasty people. It would be hard to love Maggie if she was indiscriminate, and she is so lovable. You see, her niece was injured in a car accident - the one that killed little Katie's mom and dad. So there's Maggie, suddenly responsible for a injured little girl and the mounting hospital bills, and becoming a hitwoman is pretty much her only way out.
Oh, and the accident that injured Katie and killed her parents? Maggie was in it, too. Only she didn't sustain any major injuries. What she did sustain was a newfound ability to talk to animals.
Fifteen books later, we've got a whole cavalcade of people in Maggie's life and a host of pets who keep Maggie safe and sane. (Well, they try anyway.)
I haven't finished reading The Hitwoman Under Pressure yet, but so far, I'm loving it. If you haven't tried this series yet, give it a whirl and come along for the ride, too. You won't regret it.
Oh, and here's the book description, so you know what this one is all about:
Maggie Lee's dedication to her family knows no limits.
Even though her life is in chaos, she'll take any chance to repair her fractured family.
All she has do is:
Get out of the loony bin
Eliminate the killer who’s hunting her sister
Make sure her family doesn’t go off the rails (yup, this one’s the toughest)
Thankfully she’s got the help of an ex-lover, a conman, and a sexy sailor, along with her psychic friend, her loyal, but bickering, pets, and her favorite mob boss.
If only she could rely on them to help her stop the man who wants her sister dead. With two hitmen already killed for going after him, Maggie could use all the help she can get.
Maggie’s skills (and sanity) are put to the test and the stakes have never been higher.
