The Hitwoman and the Fallen Angel by JB Lynn ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman is the only series that I started reading when book 1 first came out and am still reading (and loving) 21 books later.

The Hitwoman and the Fallen Angel
October 2019; ebook (192 pages); cozy mystery
I love cozy mysteries. Many of the series I read have a bunch of books out already, but I don't usually go back and pick up the entire series. I usually just pick up whatever book in the series I find at the time. And then there are the series that I started but then along the way grew bored with.

JB Lynn's Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman series is one of the rare few that I have read every book (in order) since the very beginning and I have not grown bored. Actually, I eagerly await the release of each book in the series. I even think if I had not picked up this series at the beginning I would go back and catch up. I know 20 books sound daunting, but they are quick reads. So if you haven't started this series don't let it stop you.

Most of the time cozy mysteries, particularly when the series is really long, each book can be read as a stand alone. I usually feel that way about this series, except for this book. It felt a little more like an installment in a serial rather than a self-contained novel in a series. Sure there is a self-contained mystery in the novel, but all the secondary threads are waving loose to the point that there is almost a cliff hanger at the end of book.

Everything we've come to love about this series is here. All the animals make an appearance. Godzilla is at his most annoying, though he has a few moments that redeem him. Piss is her usual loyal self, Benny gets to be brave, and DeeDee comes to the rescue once again. Plus there are Herschel's farm animals that add some levity. Of the human characters, Ian, Archie, and Maggie's mom are the only ones who don't make an appearance.

It is a really fun series for those who haven't started it yet, and for long-time fans, you won't be disappointed with the newest book.
