The Hitwoman Hunts a Ghost is the sixth book in the Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman Series by JB Lynn and I look forward to each one. The combination of snarky humor, talking pets, family theatrics, a hitwoman, a sexy cop, and just plain craziness make this series a must read. Especially when you are feeling down. It will put a smile on your face and give you several laughs.
In The Hitwoman Hunts a Ghost, Maggie finds herself in several situations she did not ask for. We all know she is going to get through them, but the path she takes to get there and the other mysteries she uncovers along the way are what make the book so fun. We don’t quite know how she is going to pull it off and most of the time she doesn’t either. Maggie’s life has not gotten any easier since the first book, the circumstances just change.
Along for the ride is her dog, DeeDee, cat Piss, and lizard, God (short for Godzilla). She can interact with them, but no one else can, which catches the eye of several people along the way. They bring such humor to the story and I find myself wishing my dog could talk to me. It would make life a lot easier.
Also in this book, although not as much as I had hoped was Maggie’s murder mentor, Patrick Mulligan who is also a cop. I was so hoping we could see more of their interaction, but sadly, these cases were up to Maggie to take care of this time around. I know there are more books in process so I have high hopes that JB will make the two of these characters work out the way all of us readers want.
If you have read the first several books, you must keep reading because each one is just as good as the last! If you have yet to start on the series, why not start today? They read so quickly and are so laugh-out-loud funny. I wish I could tell you The Hitwoman Hunts a Ghost was a stand alone book, but there is just so much back story and I really think you need to start at the beginning. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Bumbling hitwoman Maggie Lee has discovered the sister she thought was dead might be alive. She’s desperate to find her, but all of her bosses are making unreasonable demands. Demands she can’t afford not to meet.
Once again, Delveccio, the chocolate pudding loving mob boss, needs someone whacked.
Her obnoxious boss at her day job insists she intervene on his behalf with her semi-psychic friend, Armani.
And the mysterious organization with the power to put her almost-lover Patrick behind bars has saddled her with an annoying new partner and sent her on a mission that has gone to the dogs.
With the clock ticking, Maggie (along with her snarky lizard, dyslexic Doberman and Southern belle cat) does her best to pull off every job without winding up in jail or dead…but is her best good enough?
