Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman
Knocking off a drug kingpin was the last thing on Maggie Lee's to-do list, but when a tragic accident leaves her beloved niece orphaned and in the hospital, Maggie will go to desperate lengths to land the money needed for her care.
But the drug kingpin is the least of her worries. Maggie's aunts are driving her crazy, her best friend's turned into a bridezilla and a knock on the head has given Maggie Dr. Dolittle abilities—she can talk to animals. Unfortunately, they talk back.

This is such a fun series. JB Lynn writes a great story and adds such depth to her characters. They all have their quirks and I just love Godzilla and DeeDee. A lizard with such wit and snark is funny enough alone, but to add a big, lovable, grammatically-challenged Doberman is hilarious. This is a book that has so much going on, you won’t want to put it down until you find out how everything turns out. I really think the first book needs to be read before this one. It will help in understanding all the characters including Maggie herself.
In this story, Maggie has to raise money for a lawyer to defend the custody of her niece Katie. Her “boss” gives her the target who happens to be a former uncle (and drug dealer) and the person who Maggie believes is responsible for killing her sister, brother-in-law and putting her niece in the hospital. She also has to perform her duties as maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding, reunite with a friend from the past that she had such a crush on, shake off advances of a police officer she went out with a couple of times in the past, stop the emotions and feelings she has for her hitwoman mentor, experience threats that have to do with her incarcerated father, and deal with her crazy aunts. A lot goes on in this story!
Overall what I liked about this one was that there was a little more romance for Maggie. I think Maggie needs someone to love her and be there for her every day. She deals with so much on her own and while Godzilla and DeeDee are great for her, they are still pets and not people. I really liked Zeke in this story and went back and forth about whether or not I wanted he and Maggie to start a relationship. I still like Patrick the best and hope he and Maggie can find a way to be together when all is said and done. Maggie’s aunts remind us all that we everyone has wacky family members and even if they do some crazy things, at the end of the day, they all love each other.
JB Lynn has written another fantastic story full of humor, emotion, family, friendship, and love. I really hope there will be more books in this series. I highly recommend this series!

The further adventures of Maggie, her "murder mentor," Patrick, the witches, and other assorted characters, will keep you on the edge of your seat. Trust me, you won't want to put it down! I know, I finished it in one sitting - at 2:13 A.M.! I'm already looking forward to Maggie's new exploits!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Author JB Lynn continues "Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman" in this delightful sequel, "Further Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman" which features hitwoman Maggie Lee. Maggie kills only because she needs money to support her beloved young niece Katie who is comatose and hospitalized after the accident that killed her parents, Maggie's sister Theresa and her husband, Dirk. Maggie was also badly injured in that car accident and recovers, only to find that she can communicate with animals, namely Katie's lizard, Godzilla, and her Doberman Pinscher Doomsday who prefers to be called DeeDee. Maggie keeps this new skill to herself lest she be committed. Now, as a hitwoman in need of money, Maggie works with crime boss Tony Delveccio but as she says on page 4, "but just so as you know, I don't go around killing just anyone. I have standards. The two men I killed were bad men, very bad men." Maggie has her problems: her three aunts, her best friend Alice who is pregnant but is also getting married, Harry at her workplace who insists on breathing down her neck, Armani, her co-worker who claims to be psychic, and those three gorgeous men, Paul, Nick, and fellow hitman Patrick. What is a girl to do?
"Further Confession of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman" is a story that readers will enjoy getting into as its many characters are fun to know about in all their nuttiness. Maggie, her three aunts, Susan, Loretta, and Leslie, and all the other major and minor characters in this story are believable although the reader will be delighted that none of them is nearby neighbors. The plot of Maggie's next kill for money which she needs to care for her niece will entertain readers to the story's end. The not quite realistic theme and the ending will take the readers away from everyday life and its frequent complications.
