Book Review-Just Needs Killin'-Jinx Schwartz

Friday, September 13, 2019

This book really had me laughing a lot at all the jams the two Texas womwe, Hetta and Jan, get themselves into. This time it was Jan who managed to get into trouble first and of course she called her BFF to come get her---and they really had to keep secrets from their boyfriends! It all starts with a dead body--who the snoops see being taken away by Hetta's numero uno person non gratis and a couple of other nefarious characters.

They end up working with Jan's boyfriend on his boat attempting to find a ship that sunk many many many years ago. Treasure=Moola in Hetta's vocabulary and besides she and Jan really want to kill someone. A Ming Dynasty Vase is located but Jan's boyfriend says it has to go to the Mexican government--UH--time to take matters into her two hands--that vase is worth millions--and Hetta wants it!

They both get certified to scuba dive--but it is Po' Thang, Hetta's dog, that in one of his forays into the waters to find his treasures that brings up silver coins! UH OH--Dollar signs in Hetta's and Jan's eyes.

Then they realize that the two Japanese guys take off to go fishing every day at the same time---you know they had to find out what they were really doing!!

Hetta's numero uno person non gratis gets on their ship---

Will Hetta and Jan manage to escape--what about all that treasure?

I can guarantee that Just Needs Killin' will keep you reading, gasping and laughing at the stuff these two Texans pull. Ingenius to say the least!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht and she's not afraid to use it!

After several months of cruising Mexico's hauntingly beautiful Sea of Cortez, Hetta's in Puerto Escondido, a place once described by author John Steinbeck as "a magic harbor." Anchored out, swaying on the hook at the whim of breeze and tide, surrounded by magnificent views and turquoise water can be magical. Stuck at anchor alone? Not so much.
>>>A Luxury Party Gone Wrong

So when her best friend, Jan, gets them an invite to a party at a nearby luxury resort hosted by a Japanese businessman—all expenses paid—Hetta figures, why not? Why turn down an evening of free food and booze? And besides, what could possibly go wrong?

With Hetta involved? Plenty.

Not only are she and Jan soon up to their necks in hot sake, a succession of unsavory intruders sends Hetta scurrying for a safe harbor, but not before she reaches the conclusion that some folks just need killin'.
