THE HITWOMAN AND THE FAMILY JEWELS
Book 4 in the Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman series
How do you say “no” to a mob boss?
When bumbling hitwoman Maggie Lee is asked by her mob boss employer to kill a cop, she wants to say no.
When her sexy murder mentor, Patrick Mulligan tells her the cop in question is a guy she once dated, she REALLY wants to refuse.
But when her former date, Paul Kowalski tries to kill her, she changes her tune to “Hell, yes!”
Maggie and Patrick grow closer as they scramble to figure out what it is that Kowalski is looking for and what it has to do with her prison escapee father.
Maggie’s search is hampered by the presence of US Marshals hunting her father and her crazier-than-usual family.
Along with her snarky talking lizard, grammatically-challenged Doberman, and a pissy cat, she races to solve the mystery and protect her family. But nothing in Maggie’s life ever goes as planned….
It takes place in the office of a veterinarian where the neurotic hitwoman, Maggie Lee, waiting for news about the well-being of her beloved dog, is sitting with a one-eyed, scarred cat.
Doctor Felton strolled into the reception. He came to an abrupt stop, a look of shock on his face.
The cat’s comforting purring stopped.
Fear lanced my heart and I trembled. “What is it?”
“You’ve got piss on your lap!” he exclaimed.
Certain I’d misheard him, I asked, “What?”
“Piss,” the doctor insisted. “Piss is on your lap.”
“He means me,” the cat explained.
I looked down at her, then back at the vet. “You mean the cat?”
He nodded. “We call her Miss Piss because she peed in the spare set of shoes I keep in the back.”
“That’s a horrible name.” I looked down at the cat. “Tell me what your name is.”
“It’s a cat,” Patrick reminded me. “It can’t talk.”
The cat had the audacity to wink at me, at least that’s what I think she did with her one good eye, before jumping off my lap and stalking away. “I’m going to relieve myself in his shoes,” she purred naughtily.
