The Hitman’s Guide to Making Friends and Finding Love
By Alice Winters
Release Date: July 30, 2019
What happens when a snarky hitman and a by-the-book PI cross paths?
Being a hitman has its perks, but I never thought getting an accidental mooning by an attractive PI while he’s caught on a fence would be one of them. While it’s not exactly love at first sight, he’s captured my interest and won’t let go.
Suddenly, I find myself caught in a game of cat and mouse, determined to attract the attention of Jackson, the PI who should be my enemy. He pretends like he’s not flattered by my flowers and the mentions of my totally-not-fictitious blow-up doll Randy (or was it Dandy?), but I know better. Why else would he be teaming up with me to bring down Hardek, one of the city’s most ruthless criminals?
Even though the cops are telling me that the hitman is a notorious contract killer, I can’t help but admit that I’m drawn to him. He’s funny, charismatic, and attractive. There’s no way this ridiculous man can be the person the cops are after.
But when Leland ends up at my doorstep injured, I’m faced with a tough choice. It’s my duty to hand him over to law enforcement, but my heart has other plans. I want to keep him. To protect him. To be with him.
Though one question remains: why in the world does the man have so many d*mn guns?
Contains: shenanigans on a swing that you would NOT find at a playground, a car chase that sadly doesn’t have flips or explosions, a horsey ride sans horse, cuddles, an exuberant mutt, a suspicious chief of police, and lots and lots of laughs.

OMG, this book has it all; humor, wit, steam and heart, and that’s just the first few chapters!!!
Alice is a fantastic writer and this new series rivals the hilarity, snark, and perfection that is her Hidden in Darkness series. Leland and Jackson are the best!!!
I can’t love Leland enough. He’s hilarious, ridiculous, clueless yet smart; all rolled into a sexy, smart, and somewhat socially clueless package. His one-liners are the best and will have you in fits. The somewhat grumpy Jackson is his perfect match or as Leland would say his “mate”.
From the first chapter, Leland will make you laugh leave you wanting more. A fast-paced adventure begins and ends with the same case with a few detours along the way. The book has a little angst and a lot of flirting. Leland is somewhat relentless in his pursuit of Jackson and an unfortunate event finally brings them together and Leland never leaves.
This story has a collection of colorful characters; both good and bad, one frustratingly difficult mother, a lazy partner and a twisted case that ends with the prince being saved, you can’t help but fall in love or fall off your seat laughing with this book. I want to say everything about this book but nothing because I don’t want to spoil it. It is just fantastic and easily the funniest book I’ve read in a while. I can’t recommend it enough!!!
P.S. the last 3% of this book is by far the funniest thing I’ve ever read. For those who’ve read it, I’m still laughing at the flying squirrel and all the shenanigans around that 😉 !!!
