Book Description

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….

5.0 out of 5 stars JB Lynn has knocked another one out of the park. April 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I inhaled this book in about 3 hours. In hindsight, I probably should've read slower and savored the moment, but this book is so fast-paced and action packed, I couldn't slow down. And it wasn't until after I realized - too late - the story was over that I wanted everything to slow down.

Maggie's up to her eyeballs again. Sure, it's not entirely her fault, but she's got to deal with it. With Patrick Mulligan (her murder mentor), her trusty sidekick Godzilla (the talking lizard only Maggie can hear), and DeeDee (the grammar-challenged Doberman), she's got more than she thinks she can handle. But Maggie always handles whatever life throws at her. Maybe she doesn't do it with grace, but she gets it done.

And that's what I love about her. Whether she's dealing with her crazy family, or taking care of her injured niece, or tolerating her crazy semi-psychic friend, Maggie does everything with a style all her own.

Even when it means killing.

I loved this book. I love this series. JB Lynn has knocked another one out of the park.

My only niggle was she left things on a cliffhanger, and now I have to wait for the next book to come out. Lucky for us all, JB doesn't take too awfully long getting these puppies out into the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "Jewel" in Lynn's Crown May 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This latest addition to the Neurotic Hitwoman series by the funny and talented J.B. Lynn is LOL funny, while still maintaining the suspense. FAMILY JEWELS brings to a close a continuing thread from the previous books (no spoilers!) in the series and opens up a whole new can of worms. Plus, a new character is introduced--a sassy southern cat named Miss Piss. She. Made. Me. Laugh. Out loud. One of the things I adore about this series is how perfect the animal characters are--especially since Maggie Lee, the heroine, can talk to them a la Dr. Doolittle. I can't wait for the next installment.

I laughed so hard that I nearly dropped my Kindle into the tub. Seriously, Maggie Lee and her kooky side-kicks just get better and better. I'll never be able to get to the best parts of this book without spoilers, so you will just have to read it yourself. A few typos in the Kindle edition that slipped through editing, but the story is too good to even be bothered by them. Oh, yes J.B Lynn is probably the most hilarious writer I've ever read. You just can't top this kind of hilarity and fun. This entire series is officially on my "must-read favorites" list now. I dove right into book five the minute I finished this one. ;)

TOO MUCH FUN! ^_^

I absolutely LOVE this series. Fun and funny chick lit with lots of crazy characters, from a "murder mentor" to talking pets. This drew me in from the first page. Once I start one of JB Lynn's books, I cannot put them down and this one was no exception. If you like funny books with lots of snark, you will love this book and the entire series.

More About 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).
