Overview

From national bestselling author, Leslie Langtry comes a mystery series of laugh-out-loud proportions...

When CIA agent Merry Wrath is "accidently" outted, she's forced her into early retirement, changes her appearance, and moves where no one will ever find her-Iowa. Instead of black bag drops in Bangkok, she now spends her time leading a young Girl Scout troop. But Merry's new simple life turns not-so-simple when an enemy agent shows up dead at scout camp. Suddenly Merry is forced to deal with her former life in order to preserve her future one.

It doesn't help matters that the CIA sends in her former, sexy handler to investigate...or that the hot new neighbor across the street turns out to be the local detective in charge of her case. And when Merry is forced to take on a roommate in the voluptuous form of a turned KGB agent/bimbo, things become trickier than wet work in Waukegan or cookie sales in the spring. Nothing in the CIA or Girl Scouts' training manuals has prepared her for what comes next...

What critics are saying about Leslie Langtry's books:

"Darkly funny and wildly over the top, this mystery answers the burning question, 'Do assassin skills and Girl Scout merit badges mix..."
-RT BOOKreviews

"Mixing a deadly sense of humor and plenty of sexy sizzle, Leslie Langtry creates a brilliantly original, laughter-rich mix of contemporary romance and suspense."
-Chicago Tribune

"Langtry gets the fun started from page one with a myriad of clever details."
-Publisher's Weekly

Merit Badge Murder 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 53 reviews.

A well-written story that is also provided in the free Killer Fun collection. A ex-CIA operative outed by the vice-president of the US finds herself back in her Iowa hometown but under disguise and an alias, and as a Girl Scout leader with her childhood BFF - then the dead bodies start appearing. Humorous, tougue-in-cheek, off-the-wall antics with her yummy new neighbor who she fixates on, and the handsome CIA handler both in running for her affections. And then the Russian blonde bombshell shows up........ Several 'holes' in the plot but overall, good fun entertainment. Adult violence amd situations. Story has cliffhanger ending.

Girl Scouts, Dead Assassins a Mystery & Romance... Great combination for a new series! I loved this book! It combined two of my favorite things in a book, humor and a mystery!  What happens when a CIA agent has to go into hiding and becomes a "soccer mom" type?  Chaos, humor, a Girl Scout troop & a dead assassin(& romance!)! I loved the whole idea of the book and can't wait to read the next one "Mint Cookie Murder" which will be out soon!  Read this one while waiting for it...you won't regret it!

I loved this book - it was a great mystery with humor. I loved the author's Bombay Assassins Series and was thrilled to see that she started a new series. It is very different from the Bombays, but still filled with her unique style and ability to tell a story filled with murder and mayhem, while making you laugh. I'm already looking forward to the next book to see what mischief Merry gets into next. This is a must read. Thank you to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Great start to a new series. I truly enjoyed this start to a new series. Now I just have to wait for the next book. I won't give any of the details of the story - you can read the description, BUT I will tell you to give it a try if you love a good mystery. Bring on the next book, Ms. Langtry. We're all waiting.

Awesome Book and Very Entertaining! This book had me hooked from the first page until the last.  Merry is an ex-CIA spy, who was discharged because her cover was blown. She had to change her name, her looks, and start a new life. She is now a volunteer Girl Scout Troop along with her best friend. Everything was going fine until Merry finds a dead body when she is at scout camp. Then a few days later she runs over and kills someone, she knew who both of the body’s were because they were people she spied on when she was working with the CIA. The next thing she knows is her former sexy boss shows up to investigate and moves in a KGB agent who she hates because she is beautiful. This book has it all, humor, mystery and suspense. I can’t wait to read the next book! A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

I loved this book!  The main character, Merry, is really down to earth, not perfect, & very funny.  I look forward to the next in the series to see what she gets herself into again.

Just as funny and entertaining as Leslie Langtry's other series, The Bombay greatest hits. If you enjoyed those books, you don't want to skip this one! Can't wait to read the next book.

I really loved this book!!!!   From beginng to end, it was a nonstop rollercoaster.   I love a strong female lead and Merry is a girl who can kick some butt, literally!   I also love the humor.  The line about her getting a harp because rex had a piano just cracked me up!  Well done Leslie and I can't wait for the next book!
