Overview

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?

Meet the Author

When a fan told her that she's a "fabulous author", a "great sport", and a "very cool chick", JB Lynn immediately thought, "that's what I want my obituary to say!".

A Jersey Girl transplanted to the Sunshine State, JB (you can call her Jen) writes laugh-out-loud suspense and mysteries, along with goosebump-raising thrillers.

She also guzzles coffee, spoils her dog, wastes endless hours daydreaming, and does her best to be a "cool chick" (but if you ever see her running, swimming, or biking, you'll know how dismally she fails).

Talk about emotional! I loved THE HITWOMAN AND THE POISONED APPLE because it had more of Patrick in it and a flury of emotions. Normally these books are always counted on for great laughter but this one caused me to shed a few tears not once but twice. I love that in a book. JB Lynn also has an annoyingly good way of making you want to quickly pick up the next book in the series. I am so glad that there are many more books in the series out so I don't have to wait, too. I see why all her fans love it that she writes so quickly. In THE POISONED APPLE Maggie is tasked with finding out who tried to poison Patrick but there is so much more going on with the other characters in the story, too. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of everything going on but I think it puts the reader in Maggie's shoes because she feels the same way. She needs to be in about 20 places at once. It's hard to pick a favorite book in this series, but THE POISONED APPLE is up there because of the plot and emotions tied up with Maggie and Patrick. Lynn does a fabulous job with another installment of the Hitwoman books by giving us more of Maggie's life but nothing is ever the same as the previous books. Sometimes a series like this can become a little mundane but I have yet to feel that with Maggie and family. If you are looking for an entertaining series that will pull you in from the beginning and keep you reading, give THE HITWOMAN book by JB Lynn a try. You will love them!

I love this series, and I glad it keeps going. This book is only 128 pages. This includes all the pages meaning the pages dedicated to the actual story are even fewer. The shortness of the story (really, 128 pages is not a book) is my only disappointment.

Great Series!! I love this series! Maggie is a hitwoman for the local mobster, her murder mentor Patrick almost died because someone has poisoned him. Patrick asks Maggie if she will find out who tried to kill him. Maggie’s animals drive her nuts ever since her accident she now can understand what they are saying. She has to deal with her drugged out cat, her crazy family members, and her mobster boss all without getting caught. This book has is all humor, mystery, and a great story, it kept me up reading until the end. I can’t wait until the next book in this series comes out.  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.

This series just keeps getting better and better! Maggie has new situations to deal with and this time one of her assignments takes her to visit her mom. While she is visiting her mom there are several situations going on in the mental hospital with some new characters. Armani has a new boyfriend and right away Maggie doesn’t like him and knows that he is bad news, but Armani is convinced he is her soul mate. There is still an FBI agent at her house because he is smitten with one of her aunts so this is reason for concern with Maggie’s clandestine activities. A new man appears in Maggie’s life and just when she feels herself being drawn to him, she finds out something disturbing about him. Everywhere she goes she sees him. New information is revealed about Delveccio and his family which provides more twists and turns. Meanwhile, DeeDee the grammar challenged dog, God the lizard and Piss the cat provide a hilarious running commentary on everything and even help Maggie with her assignment. The ending to this book will have you clamoring for more!!! I would read anything from this author as the writing is so good.

This time Maggie is dealing with finding who poisoned Patrick, her pain pill addicted cat, and Aunt Susan's & Armani's love lives! Phew, I think that's it! Oh, I forgot she meets a hottie too!  I love this series and all the wacky situations that Maggie finds herself in. Can't wait till #9 and see what Maggie can get herself into next!

Confessions Of A Neurotic Hitwoman  The Hitwoman And The Poisoned Apple By: Jb Lynn¿¿ I had a blast reading Jb Lynn's latest book in her Confessions Of A Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman Series!! I mean a serious blast! I could not put the book down once I started, there is so much going on in this book but it is perfectly balanced out. I love Maggie and her family of terrors (cough) I mean family.. That includes God, Dee Dee and of course Piss who I might add needs a intervention. And if I had to have a side job as a Hitwoman then sign me up to Team Delveccio!!! Lets not forget our adorable little card shark Katie! How cute is that kid!! Patrick is a grey area for me, I don't love him and I don't hate him... Now Griswald one of Susan's suitors I loved.. I'm rooting for you buddy!!!!  Armani Vasquez!!!!!!! Need I say more...... I really enjoyed page after page of this book, with the exception of the last page! Why you might as??? Two reasons! Reason 1. It was the last page and that calls for some serious pouting!! Reason 2. It leaves off on a mind blowing WTH cliffhanger that I just was not expecting, and the next book is not even out yet and I am on Team Impatient Reading Addict!!! {True Story} I also have one very important question that is left unanswered until the next book!!! Who was the person who whispered????? Who??? I give this book Five Stars and fully recommend this book. Should start with the first book in the series because if not your missing out. 18+ due to adult situations. I was provided a copy of this book by the Author for my honest review. My view and opinions are my own.
