Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Leslie Langtry comes a mystery series of laugh-out-loud proportions....
When CIA agent Merry Wrath is "accidently" outted, she's forced her into early retirement, changes her appearance, and moves where no one will ever find her - Iowa. Instead of black bag drops in Bangkok, she now spends her time leading a young Girl Scout troop. But Merry's new simple life turns not-so-simple when an enemy agent shows up dead at scout camp. Suddenly Merry is forced to deal with her former life in order to preserve her future one.
It doesn't help matters that the CIA sends in her former, sexy handler to investigate...or that the hot new neighbor across the street turns out to be the local detective in charge of her case. And when Merry is forced to take on a roommate in the voluptuous form of a turned KGB agent/bimbo, things become trickier than wet work in Waukegan or cookie sales in the spring. Nothing in the CIA or Girl Scouts' training manuals has prepared her for what comes next....

One of the daftest books I’ve ever heard

Imagine a CIA operative who refers to ‘baddies’, who has retired but decided to go back to her home town and change her hair colour, so no one recognises her (which they don’t) and who doesn’t work, but hasn’t found the time in a year to buy furnishing for her house... If you can overlook those kinds of things then this book is quite enjoyable, it is well paced and colourful, even if the main character comes across as thick as a brick!

Enjoyable ex-spy cozy, Sounded familiar

A burned ex-CIA agent hiding in a small town can't keep trouble from shining a light on her weak-sauce cover.

The story sounded familiar and right up my cul de sac. I enjoyed the story as an interesting diversion, while waiting for any of my other favorite cozy mysteries series to finish negotiations to release their next books in audiobook.

Overall I am glad I found this. It was entertaining but the town is no Sinful, LA. Rated on the scale of it's genre, if Fortune gets 5 stars, this is certainly worthy of 4.

I tried...

What would have made Merit Badge Murder better?

The narration was awful. I couldn't get past the monotone, lack of inflection, lack...of anything.

What could Leslie Langtry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Choose a different narrator. The storyline could have been great, but I couldn't listen to the book at all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Bailey Carr’s performances?

NO!
