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.

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.

Leslie Langtry grew up in the small town of DeWitt, Iowa, where her teachers wrote, “Leslie spends too much time day dreaming in class,” on her report cards and kids wrote, “You are funny and really weird,” in her yearbooks.  For some idiotic reason, Leslie didn’t fulfill her dream of becoming a published author until much later.  Instead she lived and worked in Lynchburg, Virginia; Springfield, Illinois; Clinton, Iowa; and Rock Island, Illinois.  Now she lives in the Quad Cities with her husband – Tom, kids – Margaret and Jack, a Pug, a Basset Hound and two cats.  She divides her time between writing, her most excellent critique group and her perfectly behaved Girl Scout troop.  Leslie is currently working on her next book.  For more information, check out
