A fun change from the usual crime thrillers

 on 2 June 2015
By J. Trainer
It is only when Donna Stone’s husband is killed by a car bomb that she finds out that he works for Acme, a shadow government agency that spends its time bumping off bad guys. To get revenge on his killers, a terrorist group called The Quorum, she is persuaded to take his place as a government assassin.

More Miss Fisher rather than Agent Carter but enjoyable none the less

 on 26 April 2018
By Greebo
This is light hearted if somewhat unbelievable. I am just as ready as the next man to leave logic at the door as the next person, but some a middle aged house wife becoming one of the CIA’s top assassins with a couple of years training and still getting home in time to pick up the kids is stretching it a bit. It is amusing for the most part and does keep up a reasonable pace but our protagonist seems to kill most of her victims or escape more through luck than talent, she is just lucky the bad guys are dumber than she is. Even the housewife’s tips are hit and miss, some are quite funny and others you have to wonder why the author bothered. For the whole it’s more Miss Fisher rather than Agent Carter but enjoyable.

Fun and mysterious

By Meera
A wonderful sense of humour runs a gamut from a to b in this book. Think of a woman who has lost her husband but is offered a chance to avenge him yet at the same time has to pretend that a fellow assassin is now her husband. Let the games commence. The only reason this didn’t receive 5 stars is it became a little predictable at the end. Not enough to spoil the humour but enough to make it harder to finish.

A fantastic read

 on 3 January 2016
By Kindle Customer
I loved this book because it had everything, suspense, romance (the grown up erotic kind) and comedy. I read it at night when the family had gone to sleep and it was my hour of escapism. I think it was well written, easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable.

A quirky fun read

This was a great read, I loved the story of a housewife who turns out to be a assassin in her spare time, there is a few twists and turns in the book that keep you guessing and the book had a great plot, the only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is that at the start of every chapter there was a little “how to” page for being a housewife and i found myself skimming over it and getting a bit fed up with it but maybe thats just me, i just felt it a little lacking and personally i didnt think the book needed it as it was a great read without it. I would certainly read more from this author.

I absolutely loved the book

 on 20 June 2016
By Belinda
This was one of the recommendations Amazon sent based on my rather large amount of constant kindle downloads. I absolutely loved the book, the quirky comments, especially the tips available at the beginning of each chapter…and well, within the space of three weeks, I have now downloaded the 13th book in the series. Donna deals with having a dead husband which according to the neighbourhood is away on business, her kids, her annoying neighbours…and on the side line her new job as an assassin….oh, and Jack, who moves in as the husband back from business…but not the husband back from the dead.

A Bit of Everything!

This is a great book if you want to get away from your own possibly mundane life for a few hours!

Great fun from Josie Brown

 on 14 June 2015
By Robin Joyce
Good on you Josie Brown. I was so disappointed with the first of JB’s novels I read as it seemed to me to be a very small fragment of the whole. With this novel we get the whole amusing story and it really makes up for my previous disappointment. I found this novel really comical and had lots of fun reading it to its very satisfying conclusion. Josie Brown has a wonderful way with her characters, developing them as wonderful comic beings about whom I wanted to read more. I shall very happily buy more of the novels having so enjoyed this free one. I look forward to this series continuing.
