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!

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.
