Any woman can be both the perfect housewife and an accomplished assassin, because both functions require the same qualities: creativity; a never-say-die attitude; and an attention to details, no matter how small...


All I really needed to know about being a freelance assassin I learned before my youngest daughter, Trisha, started kindergarten.

I've come to that realization as I lay naked and handcuffed to the bed of my target du jour, a sleazebag by the name of Yuri Petrovich. 

Believe it or not, everything is going just as I planned, and right on schedule.

At least, that is what I tell myself as I watch him unzip his rock star-tight leather pants and squeeze out of them as quickly as he can because of his erection, which seems to be growing by the nanosecond and has him wincing in pain. 

In Yuri's fantasy if anyone is going to say ouch, it's going to be me....



More murder. More suspense. More sex. And yes, more handy household tips. 

"Adorable is not usually the word that comes to mind with a title like The Housewife Assassin's Handbook, but it was just what I needed to pull me out of my reading doldrums. Donna works for the good guys, Acme Industries, undercover by taking down drug lords and terrorists with a matter-0f-fact attitude while worrying about making it to her carpooling duties. Granted, the book ended with a hook that made me want to immediately get the next one, which is always a smart move and I was excited to see that there are actually 11 books in the series (including a prequel).  I now want a week at the beach to read them all.  Live a little, add some spice to your life, give this little book a try and give yourself a reason to smile.  I know I did and now I'm completely smitten." -- Barbara Vey,

"Secrets, sex, money and scandal...Josie Brown is a skilled observer whose clever dialogue makes for truly entertaining reading."
