Maggie Lee has never killed anyone before but what is a girl to do if she needs to pay her niece’s medical bills and needs a job ASAP! Determined to help her niece with the best medical care, she reluctantly takes a mobster’s offer to become a hitwoman and kill his son-in-law. Maggie is trying to keep her wits about because if she gets caught or doesn’t do her job, then she is next on the mob’s hit list.

I really liked CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN. It had a heroine who is trying to do her best as well as deal with the issues that cropped up after the car accident that killed her sister and had her niece in the hospital. I found the author had a great grasp in her characters; they were very well written and captured your heart immediately. Maggie is fun, determined and more than able to steal a readers’ heart. She does things for the right reason and I loved how she had humor as well as a way about her that endeared her to me. The story flows nicely, characters are very well written and the reader is treated to a story that will leave a smile on your face in the end.

Meet Maggie. After a car accident leaves her sister dead and her beloved niece with some major injuries, she tries really hard to find a job-any job-to pay the piling medical bills. Maggie is a woman who is vulnerable yet gutsy and one I really enjoyed immensely. You got a sense of how much she loved her sister and niece and will do anything for them. What had me giggling a bit was the talking lizard, one who loved Wheel of Fortune and only Maggie could hear. Those moments left me so tickled pink and I enjoyed the way Maggie interacted with everyone in the story that she comes across. The secondary characters are well written and keep the reader glued to the pages to see what is next.

CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN is a fast paced story that will charm you till the end. The author does a great job in capturing the characters strengths and vulnerabilities perfectly within the pages and the reader is drawn into the world where hitwomen follow mob orders.
