"A fine piece of literary work." - New York Post, Page Six

So many books in this genre fall into the same formula and once you've read more than two of them, the books become predictable. Not so in this book {or any of Josie Brown's books for that matter}. I was actually very surprised by the twists in the book and found my jaw hanging open in shock on more than one occasion. The characters are so well written that I found myself getting emotional as the story went along- I felt angry, sad and happy for the characters and almost became protective as well. Definitely a great read!

I liked the first in the series so much I had to read the next. Easy reads and entertaining. You can't say women aren't multitalented! Am now looking forward to the next in the series. I think you will enjoy the read.

Imagine "Desperate Housewives" on steroids with a few assassins thrown in, mixed with a quick wit and some snark, and you'll begin to get the picture. Book 2 keeps up the sassy humour and great characters of Book 1, and the contradictory worlds of soccer mom and government-sanctioned assassin. Talk about a juggling act!

I love how each chapter starts off with pithy advice on how to manage your house (including recommendations on what to serve dinner guests and how to kill off the obnoxious ones), followed by the antics of our heroine / secret agent / mommy and the crew she's surrounded with. The humor is slightly dark at times, laugh out loud at other times, and the dialogue and action move along at a good clip. I highly recommend this series.

I adore the assassination series, it has all the right things in them to make you want the next one NOW. They have laughter, love, hate, compassion, suspense and murder all rolled into these intriguing books. Josie doesn't let you down. I purchased all of them after the 1st one.

Once again, Donna and Jack take on impossible missions while dealing with their impossible relationship. They truly love one another but work and the Quorum are doing everything possible to stop them. On the other hand, the delightfully witty etiquette and planning tips at the beginning of each chapter give the reader great ideas for entertaining guests and being one.

This book finds Donna doing everything to stay alive. Josie adds a special touch on the sex scenes (if sex scenes bother you the book is still worth reading just skip that page) and her characters really pop. I keep turning pages to see if nasty Carl will get what is coming to him or if he is going to take Donna out.

Donna Stone is a spy and a housewife. She's a mom who's doing it all. Donna can take out the bad guys and still be there to pick up the kids from school. I was hooked from the very first page that I read of The Housewife Assassin's series. Josie Brown does a great job with suspense and humor. Donna's sarcasm sounds like it could be coming from my mouth. I especially like that the sex scenes are not drawn out and overly detailed.
