5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars: Quirky, funny and wonderfully refreshing 17 July 2009
By D. Merrimon Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Coney Bombay, known as Cy, had a job to do --- assassinate a popular sports figure whose nefarious sideline activities put him on the Bombay family's hit list. For centuries the Bombay family has been in the business of execution and Cy knows how to get the job done efficiently, at least until he meets Veronica Gale. While working as a carney, She approaches him asking questions for her research paper. Cy challenges some of her academic preconceptions. After all, he himself was once a doctorate student in philosophy, and he knows the pitfalls of playing it safe and living in one's head at the expense of life. She grabs his attention from the get go, but Cy knows this chance meeting can go nowhere. While on a martial arts trip to Mongolia, suddenly she appears back in his life. Trouble ensues as Cy has a job to do and she will only get in the way. Veronica Gale is determined to solve the conspiracy behind a murder or at least what she claims is a murder despite the official cause of death. As her adventures take her further and further from the the safety of academia into a strange new exciting world, can she solve the mystery and find romance at the same time? What effect will Veronica's presence have on Cy? Will he ever be the same?

The final book in the Bombay family series, Leslie Langtry's I SHOT YOU BABE is a wacky, wonderful mystery romance with a dark, clever offbeat sense of humor. Told in the first person from Cy's point of view, Cy takes center stage, giving readers an inside look into this quirky assassin/carney with a Ph.D. in philosophy and a guinea pig sidekick named Jean-Paul Sartre. Cy's wonderful blend of light sarcasm and eclecticism is the perfect ingredient for non-stop laughs. Although Veronica's character is less developed as Cy's, Leslie Langtry does an excellent job detailing the changes within Cy as Veronica grabs ahold of his heart. Every page brings a delightful surprise and chuckle at the sheer odd brilliance of the author's imagination. More romance than mystery, several wonderful surprise twists, including a mystery puzzle or two, at the end make this book a wonderful conclusion to the Bombay assassin stories.

I SHOT YOU BABE is not a choice for readers unable to suspend their belief, who take themselves very seriously, or those who want realistic mysteries or romances. It is a perfect choice for those readers, even those bent towards seriousness at times, who love a good laugh or zany situations. Some politically active readers might object to one sentence from a secondary character on the subject of torture. Given the non-realistic setting presented in the romance --- a book with an assassin hero nonetheless --- I do not believe it will be an issue for the majority of readers. I SHOT YOU BABE is not a political treatise but rather a hysterically funny book best enjoyed by readers who can laugh at themselves, even their serious pursuits, and the pure pleasure of fiction. As someone who has spent way too much time in academia, I found Leslie Langtry's humorous look at academia, philosophy and Ph.D.s downright priceless. Leslie Langtry has a true knack for bringing smart, wild, offbeat humor into this romance.

Leslie Langtry's I SHOT YOU BABE is the perfect remedy for the summer heat doldrums or just that restless craving for a unique and different romance to spice up one's reading pleasure. Take it to the beach, read it after a long tiring or frustrating day at work (or home) or any time you need a good refreshing pick-me-up to rejuvenate the spirit. With its offbeat adventure and romance with a mystery twist, in a chick lit style gone eccentric, I SHOT YOU BABE is non-stop fun, fun, fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just for fun 10 Dec. 2010
By LibraryLady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Leslie Langtry writes books that are comparable to Donna Andrews and Janet Ivanovich. I loved the first book in the series so I let my daughter read it and then I had to tear my Kindle away from her to read the second, third, and fourth books. I could not put this book down and found myself actually laughing out loud while waiting in a dentist's office for an appointment. I fervently hope that Leslie writes more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would have been 5 stars except for all the errors 29 Jan. 2011
By TjMcbabyhands - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't usually review items althought I read alot. The series was very funny and action packed. I enjoyed getting to know this crazy family. I would like to read more by this author.

Now the real reason for my review, Who edits/prof-reads these e-books? The errors were numerous, ranging from misspelled words and punctuation marks in the wrong places to sentences being repeated in the middle of a paragraph. The version that I purchased looked like a second draft of a jr. high school writing assignment. The sentences had multiple endings. And there is a scene in the airport where Coney is chasing after Vic in seperate cabs while simultaneously dragging him along after knocking him out and tying him up. How is that even possible? If this would have been a paperback book that I had purchased I would have taken it back to the store and demanded my money back, no matter how amusing the story was. I found this to be true for all the books in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coney Island Bombay, READ THIS LAST FOR THE BOMBAY SERIES!!!! 14 Jun. 2012
By LauraLoves2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you have read the other books about the Bombay family, you should know some of it's repetitive. BUT, it's worth it. I love getting to know each of the family members. I wish I knew to read them in the right order....I'm not even sure what the right order is, but if you do read the series, you should find out. I still think Gin is my favorite, but "Cy" is a close second. I'm on the 4th book and don't want it to end. Even though I read this book 2nd, and should have read it last, It doesn't matter, I still LOVE THESE BOMBAY BOOKS!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A series that keeps you entertained and laughing out loud! 28 Jun. 2009
By Cynseer Booklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Once again, Leslie Langtry has written a "keeper" with the fourth in her hilarious series on the Bombay family of assassins, "I Shot You Babe". Maybe it's my own skewed sense of humor, but from book one "Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy" I was hooked and loving every page. In fact, I found myself anxious for the next installment in what became a beloved bunch of characters. Great writing, wonderfully kooky dialogue and the quotes that preface each chapter are appropriately hilarious! All in all, I can only state firmly that anyone that loves a good laugh, enjoys imagination gone wild and a set of characters that are off the wall, will love the books written by Leslie Langtry. I heartily recommend you purchase her books, you won't be disappointed.
