Leslie Langtry Bombay Family of Assassins

From the Cover: YOU CAN'T PICK YOUR FAMILY... Death by Chocolate is her favorite dessert. And those knitting needles aren't just for craft projects. To most people, Gin Bombay is an ordinary single mom. Then again, they don't know she's from a family of top secret assassins. Somewhere between leading a Girl Scout troop for her kindergartner--would nooses count for a knot badge?--and keeping their puppy from destroying the furniture, Gin now has to take out a new target. BUT YOU CAN PICK THEM OFF Except this target has an incredibly hot Australian bodyguard who knows just how to make her weak in the knees. But with a mole threatening to expose everything, Gin doesn't have much time to let her hormones do the happy dance. She's got to find the leak and clear her assignment...or she'll end up next on the Bombay family hit list.

From the Cover:

Dakota Bombay prided himself on his blond Bond image---bad-guy killer by day, lady-killer by night. Then his life gets both shaken and stirred by an irate grandmother demanding a marketing plan for the family assassination business, a precocious six-year-old son Dak never knew he had, and a mysterious redhead who's erased his decades-old preference for blondes. Suddenly the perennial playboy is knee deep in pie charts and thinking he may have found the perfect mom for his boy. She's smart, funny, and directs a funeral home no less---what could be better? Now if he can just take out a team of rival assassins without getting killed himself, they can all live trigger-happily ever after.

From the Cover:

Missi Bombay invents ways for the Bombay Family of assassins to kill bad guys. Her life is peaceful as a widow with twin, teen sons living on her own island. Then the Bombay Family sends her on an assignment to the set of a cheap Canadian knockoff of Survivor. She has to find her target and take him out before being voted off. Missi Bombay is the Bombay Family's inventor. With twin sons about to go to college, she's happy just blowing things up in her lab on her private island. That is, until her next assignment from the family business which just happens to be assassination. As a contestant on a cheap, Canadian knockoff of Survivor, she has to find the bad guy and take him out, while fighting off feelings for Lex, the sexy stuntman.

From the Cover:

Cy Bombay is somewhat of a Bombay Family enigma. He's an assassin - as per the family business, but he's also a carney with an ivy league Ph.D and a guinea pig named Sartre. Cy left the ivory tower to travel the world learning different fighting styles, when he's on leave from the carnival. Meeting Veronica Gale, a grad student who aspires to that ivory tower, is more than he bargained for. Life is good for Cy Bombay. He travels from town to town, living off the grid in his tricked out RV with his guinea pig named Sartre. Cy likes balancing his lives as a carney and assassin by exploring fighting styles all over the world. This time, he's off to Mongolia to compete at the Naadaam festival in wrestling, he thinks he has life totally pegged. That is, until he meets Veronica Gale - a naive grad student who can't understand why he doesn't work in his Ph.D field. Throw in a couple of Bombay Family "assignments," and Cy definitely has his hands full.

Coming Soon!!!

Tifferz Take:

First off my sister told me about Guns will keep us together and that is how I found out about Leslie Langtry! I always love to find a new author and Leslie is great. I was hooked with the first book I read and have not had any regrets with any of the others. This is a series but each book also can stand alone. As I stated before I started with book 2. Then read book 1, 3 and 4. Book 5 will be coming soon!!!

These books are great. The story lines, plot and character development are great. These are a fast paced easy read. They are very light hearted and yet they have mystery, adventure, suspense and romance. I do feel I should warn you they do contain swearing (more than just a few words) and premarital sex with some detail. You can skip the sex parts very easily but if swearing bothers you then you might want to think twice about these books. I do have to confess with each book I read I was telling my husband he needed to become an assassin. I know crazy but Leslie captivated me!!! Needless to say my husband did not quit this job and become an assassin. I look forward to reading book #5. This is a really fun series, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
