About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes the latest hilarious Merry Wrath Mystery, where Merry's past with the CIA comes back to haunt her in a very lively way in small town Iowa!


Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the water…

 

Who expects to come home and find an angry Chechen strong man in their front yard? That’s what former CIA turned suburbanite Merry Wrath discovers when she comes home from a disastrous pool party with her Girl Scout troop. Only this is Iowa, not Chechnya, and Aslan is anything but friendly, having realized Merry doubled crossed him in her former CIA life.

 

As revenge for the humiliation, Aslan has an ultimatum for Merry: kill her former handler, Riley Andrews, or Aslan’s goons, Ron and Ivan, will kill Merry’s husband, Rex.

 

Be careful what you wish for…

 

When Merry’s assassin colleague Hilly (who isn’t an assassin because the CIA doesn’t have assassins – that would be illegal) shows up to help, Merry dares to hope the two of them can find a solution to avoid killing Riley and protect Rex. But before they can come up with a plan, Merry is faced with a dead body, and Hilly tells police she saw Ron and Ivan dumping it. Unfortunately, Merry know that's not true as she was with the dim-witted rogues when the murder happened.

 

It’s a not-so-classic cozy conundrum…

 

Now Merry is trapped in a diabolical dilemma. With Hilly and Riley now suspects in the murder, she could say nothing and watch Ron and Ivan take the fall. Or does she do the right thing, and help Ron and Ivan implicate her friends in the process? Merry has to solve this one on her own as she walks a fine line between doing the right thing for the wrong people, or the wrong thing for the right people.

I love these books with Merry Wrath and her troop of girl scouts with unusual skills. It is non stop action with all our favorite characters and four footed friends. More characters surface from Merry's past with the CIA. As usual, very little is as it first appears. I simply sat and enjoyed the twists and turns as I devoured this book one afternoon! Get the book and let the hijinks begin! This is another zany tale from a master writer.

Love this series and the characters! Poor Merry just can't catch a break! There's always someone from her past out to get her. Hilly was back in this one, which guarantees a weird but fun time, and we learn more about Merry's old life. This was such a great read, lots of fun!
