“Should your naughty new neighbors resist your suggestions, invite them over to see your new media room. The fact that it doubles as a torture chamber should encourage them to toe the line!”
-Josie Brown, The Housewife Assassin’s Handbook
Killer quote, don’t you think?
Each chapter starts out with a lovely assassin tidbit. It fit the book perfectly.
The first chapter had me questioning if I was going to enjoy the book. It didn’t flow right to me, so I had trouble focusing on it. Once past the first chapter, I was enjoying the book and trying to figure out the twists and turns. It got kind of stressful when I realized I didn’t know who was actually on what team, despite my thinking ahead, but that was quickly resolved. From there on out, it was an enjoyable read once more.
The story is told from Donna’s POV. Donna, housewife turned assassin, wife turned lover turned wife turned lover turned lover? Just go with it. She’s complicated and human, but that just makes the book come alive more to the reader.
This is book one of the series. I’m not sucked in the series, but if I happen to chance upon more in the series, I’d read them.
