I know when I pick up one of the Hitwoman books that I'm guaranteed a fun, quick read. As you may guess from the title, this one involved children. And in a cozy mystery kids are required to provided hilarious moments. Combine the kids with Maggie's menagerie and the laughs just keep coming.
While the story is relatively light, there are a few bittersweet plot threads. The mob boss's grandson is well enough to be discharged from the hospital and he is requesting Angel to return to the family fold to help with the boy's recovery. That means that Maggie will be left to tend with Katie on her own, well not completely on her own since she lives in the B&B with her aunts.
Maggie's long lost, and thought dead, sister decides to make her reappearance to the rest of the family by buying the house next door. To say the least, Darlene's return causes chaos. Though Darlene's return may relieve some of Maggie's responsibilities it does cause Maggie to have to make the most difficult of decisions.
There is a little detail that I hope will become clearer in future books.How did Teresa know what kind of parent Darlene be if Darlene disappeared when they were children?
The Hitwoman Plays Chaperone is another great hit and you are missing out if you haven't picked up this series.
