From USA Today bestselling author, Leslie Langtry comes the next laugh-out-loud Merry Wrath Mystery...
Summer is moving fast for ex-CIA Agent turned Girl Scout troop leader, Merry Wrath. Wedding plans are underway, with the groom's twin sisters on a mission to decorate the festivities with taxidermized animals and a full troop of flower girls with terrible taste in dresses.
If that wasn’t enough to deal with, the Girl Scouts dig up a treasure map in Merry’s yard. A century ago, the mysterious axe murder of Mad Mimi and the secret of her missing treasure were never solved. Merry thinks this map could be the key... but unfortunately, the investigation of this cold case—complete with a secret diary, gold bullion, and a llama named Tinkles—yields a modern day murder!
Are these crimes connected? And more importantly—who has an axe to grind with Merry Wrath?

I haven’t stopped laughing. Well worth buying.
I really love the Merry Wrath series! I have read all the books in this series, and each one is awesome! I laugh out loud every time I read one. Merry’s adventures with her Girl Scouts make for such a unique storyline. It is unexpected but hysterical! I love all the characters. And I am enjoying how the love triangle is playing out. I also have to say the mysteries in each book keep you guessing. I highly recommend this series.
This is the first book that I have read of this series. To be honest, it took me a couple of chapters to “get into” the story, but once I did, I was hooked. Ms. Langtry has a quirky sense of humor. The idea of an ex-CIA agent being a Scout leader is hilarious! Our heroine, Merry, gets herself into some very interesting situations to say the least. I would recommend this book to anyone who might like a good, clean cozy mystery about a funny, independent young woman who is trying to transition from an adventurous spy life to the life of a normal woman in a small mid-western town. Now I want to go back and read book #1! I was provided an advance copy of this book and voluntarily wrote an unbiased review
