I’m Not Nuts….or am I? 

Hi, I’m Maggie Lee….the “slightly neurotic hitwoman” in JB Lynn’s books.

I spend a lot of time wondering if I’m nuts. I used to think my life was crazy and you would too. My mom is a long-term resident of a mental health facility, my dad is a thief/con-man/convicted murderer/prison inmate, and I have three meddling aunts, who I’m sometimes convinced, their sole purpose for being on the planet is to drive me crazy.

So my life has been on the nuttier side, but I never thought I was losing my mind. That is until I sustained a head injury in the car accident that killed my sister Theresa and her husband and left my niece Katie in my care.

One of the side effects of cracking my skull is that I can now understand Godzilla (or, as he prefers to be called, God) Katie’s lizard and my adopted dog Doomsday. I have actual conversations with them. I’ve even taken God’s advice. I know how crazy that sounds.

Another side effect is that I’ve actually agreed to kill people for money (to pay for Katie’s medical bills). No sane person would do that, right?

Yet another is that I’ve started to believe in my friend Armani’s psychic predictions. When she pulls out her bag of Scrabble tiles, I know she’s about to tell me my future.

And lastly, as though things aren’t bad enough, I’ve kind of fallen in love with my Patrick Mulligan, a cop who moonlights as a paid assassin. I ought to have my head examined….

Maggie Lee is not your average hitwoman. For one thing, she’s never killed anyone. For another, after hitting her head in the car accident that killed her sister, her new best friend is a talking lizard–a picky eater, obsessed with “Wheel of Fortune,” that only Maggie can hear.

Maggie, who can barely take care of herself, is desperate to help her injured and orphaned niece get the best medical care possible, so she reluctantly accepts a mobster’s lucrative job offer: major cash to kill his monstrous son-in-law.

Paired with Patrick Mulligan, a charming murder mentor (who happens to moonlight as a police detective), Maggie stumbles down her new career path, contending with self-doubt, three meddling aunts, a semi-psychic friend predicting her doom, and a day job she hates. Oh, and let’s not forget about Paul Kowalski, the sexy beat cop who could throw her ass in jail if he finds out what she’s up to.

Training has never been so complicated And, this time, Maggie has to get the job done. Because if she doesn’t . . . she’s the mob’s next target.

Take three wacky aunts, two talking animals, one nervous bride, and an upcoming hit, and you’ve got the follow-up to JB Lynn’s wickedly funnyConfessions 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.

It’s just another day in the life of this neurotic hitwoman…
