The Hitman's Guide to Getting Married Without Getting Shot by Alice Winters
Now, that I'm sort of, kind of back in the swing of things, I would most likely be talking about all the ways Alice Winters and her books are what sustained me during the epidemic. It all started with Audible Escape. See, I took a lot of walks in the Spring and romance audiobooks helped me out a lot. I listened The Hitman's Guide to Making Friends and Finding Love first, and from there, I fell in lurrrvvve. I listened to all the books that were available at the time. Since Audible Escape has been discontinued, I signed up for Kindle Unlimited to continue my path to addiction.
The latest in her Hitman's Guide books find us with Leland (the Hitman) and the love of his life, Jackson (the P.I.) engaged and being tortured by Ava (Jackson's mom) with grandiose plans for their upcoming nuptials. However a wrench was thrown into the mix by Jackson getting shot by a supposedly aggrieved former client. If y'all know Leland, you'd know that this psycho assassin would upend the entire world to find the people responsible. Because Leland is a lot of things, but protective and unhinged are definitely his default setting when it comes to the love of his life.
In no time, he manages to find the person responsible and slowly pieced together why there was a price on Jackson's head. Along with Henry, Cassell, and a straggler in the form of a little girl, this installment remains true to form: hilarious, dark, and unapologetically wrong. It made me shake with uncontrollable laughter at times -- at inopportune time mostly. Leland is my inner avatar. He gets my humour and I get his. If you're in the hunt for something inappropriately funny, check out ALL of Alice Winters' books.
