From Edgar-Award nominee Elle Cosimano, comes Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead—the hilarious and heart-pounding follow-up to Finlay Donovan is Killing It.
"A funny and smart, twisty and surprising series."—Megan Miranda
Finlay Donovan is—once again—struggling to finish her next novel and keep her head above water as a single mother of two. On the bright side, she has her live-in nanny and confidant Vero to rely on, and the only dead body she's dealt with lately is that of her daughter's pet goldfish.
On the not-so-bright side, someone out there wants her ex-husband, Steven, out of the picture. Permanently. Whatever else Steven may be, he's a good father, but saving him will send her down a rabbit hole of hit-women disguised as soccer moms, and a little bit more involvement with the Russian mob than she'd like.
Meanwhile, Vero's keeping secrets, and Detective Nick Anthony seems determined to get back into her life. He may be a hot cop, but Finlay's first priority is preventing her family from sleeping with the fishes... and if that means bending a few laws then so be it.
With her next book's deadline looming and an ex-husband to keep alive, Finlay is quickly coming to the end of her rope. She can only hope there isn't a noose at the end of it...
Four and a half Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭒
Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano is the second book in her very popular Finlay Donovan series but can be read as a stand-alone. I was anxiously awaiting this installment as I enjoyed her first book in this series very much, and this second book did not disappoint!
Finlay Donovan is a struggling novelist and single mother of two small children. When she finds out someone is trying to kill her ex-husband, Steve, she immediately works to find out who is trying to kill him. Although he is a thorn in her side almost all the time, she doesn’t want the father of her children dead. Working with her live-in friend/nanny/housekeeper, Vero they race the clock to find out who wants Steve dead.
This cozy mystery is hilarious. I loved this book as much as the first book in the series and was delighted to be back with Finlay, Vero, and all the other characters. I enjoyed the mystery as it kept me guessing until the very end. The book is fast-paced as Finlay and Vero work together to figure out who is trying to kill Steven.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fun cozy mystery. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
