Every desperate housewife would love an alias. Donna Stone has one, and it's government-sanctioned. But terrorism makes strange bedfellows. Jack Craig, the wild card Acme operative paired with Donna brings, new meaning to that old adage “Honey, I'm home…”

The Housewife Assassin’s Handbook is a hilarious, laugh-out-loud read. Donna is a fantastic character – practical, witty, and kick-ass tough. There’s plenty of action – both in and out of the bedroom – and although there are a few grittier scenes, generally this is a light, humourous caper of a crime novel. I especially love the housekeeping tips at the start of each chapter – each with its own deadly twist!

This book is perfect for relaxing in the bath after a long day. I can’t wait to read the next in the series. Highly Recommended.” 
—Stephanie Broadribb’s Crime Thriller Girl blog

"Plans go slightly awry, but Donna’s above-mentioned creativity and never-say-die attitude gets her to the school (almost) on time. She handles both roles like a pro, slipping from mommy to assassin back to mommy again, perhaps not flawlessly, but with humor and skill."
—Dianna Douglas, Book Blogger

"The last book that made me laugh:
Josie Brown's The Housewife Assassin's Handbook.
Brown's unorthodox surprises did make me laugh. I taught it in a class about comic novels."

—Jane Smiley



"This book hits all the right notes...
I now want
a week at the beach
to read them all...
I'm completely smitten."
