Make Believe Murder

(2019)
(Book 12 in the Merry Wrath Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes a former CIA agent turned Girl Scout troop leader and a laugh-out-loud mystery!

Merry Wrath's summer plans didn't originally include an unexpected visit from her old friend, Hilly - a quirky CIA assassin who's been forced by HR to take her first vacation in... forever. The fact that Hilly chose a small town in Iowa for vacation doesn't bother Merry or her scout troop (especially since Hilly's teaching them how to kill a man with one punch), but her former handler, Riley, believes something sinister is afoot.

After all Lana, Merry's arch-nemesis, is sighted all over town, and when a Chinese operative ends up murdered in her backyard, Merry starts to wonder if Riley is right and Hilly is secretly on the job. It doesn't help that a group of cosplaying teenage druids have targeted Merry for a misguided ritual sacrifice, or that Medea Jones, cub reporter, constantly harasses Merry, seeing the former spy as her Pulitzer Prize winning vehicle out of Who's There, Iowa.

Merry wonders if her strange friend really is on vacation, or if she's after another target? Is it Lana? Was it the Chinese operative? Or is it Merry Wrath?
