Teaser: The Hitwoman and the Poisoned Apple by @JB_Lynn_author

First Chapter
First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. Today's intro comes from my current read, The Hitwoman and the Poisoned Apple by JB Lynn.

Rook Allie's War

You know it's going to be a bad day when your To Do list contains: Go to the Cemetery.
And when you get out of bed with your bare feet and step into a pile of puke your drugged out cat regurgitated in the middle of the night, and you dry heave, your hopes for the day fall even further.

Buy The Hitwoman and the Poisoned Apple at Amazon 

I love JB Lynn's Hitwoman series. Though this is book 8 in the series, you don't really have to have read the series to enjoy this one. They are quick funny reads that usually also have me shedding a poignant tear or two. I was reading this the other day while waiting for the computer tech to back up my data from my busted laptop and I couldn't help giggling out loud. The series is a cross between a cozy mystery and a chicklit novel. It would definitely make for great holiday reading.
