Review: Hitwoman Under Pressure by JB Lynn

by Donna Huber

cover Hitwoman Under Pressure
You just know it's going to be a bad day when you can't get out of the loony bin.
My name is Maggie Lee, and while I admit there are times that I probably belong in a mental institution, this wasn't one of them. I'd come to visit my mother, to as her about a brother I'd never known existed and now I was trapped.

Wow! I can't believe this is book 15 in this series. I'm not sure I have stuck with a series this long since the Babysitters Club. But I can tell you I would probably read another 15 books. I love Maggie and the whole crazy crew (aka her family, friends, and pets).

While I may love to read another 15 books in the Hitwoman series, as I have said in my last few reviews I think it is coming to an end. Many of the mysteries we encountered in the first few books are being solved. More importantly though is the fact that Maggie is growing up. Yes, I know she has always been an adult, but she had some maturing to do and definitely needed to discover who she really is. I noticed it two or three books back, but in Hitwoman Under Pressure other characters are noticing and voicing it to Maggie. Hopefully, Maggie will believe it

We are used to Maggie being in danger, but this story line placed everyone in danger at some point it seemed like. Maggie is facing her deadliest mark in Redcoat.

I know a lot of people don't want to start a series that is 15 books in (that's why I've not read Game of Thrones or Poldark), but these books are quick reads. I can read them in a day, or at least two or three if I'm really busy. So don't let the number 15 be a stumbling block to joining this fun adventure.
