Book Review: "Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead" by Elle Cosimano
Your favorite duo of novelist Finlay Donovan and her nanny/sidekick Vero return for another set of madcap adventures! After being mistaken for a hit-woman and getting tangled up with the Russian mob, she’s trying to get her life on track and get her latest book finished.
And then she finds out that someone wants her ex-husband Steven dead, and they have gone looking online for someone to carry out the hit. Have there been lots of times Finlay has wanted to kill Steven? Sure, but she doesn’t really want him dead; her kids need their father, too.
So Finlay needs to figure out who wants Steven dead, and find who agreed to carry out the hit before it’s too late. In the meantime, she’ll have to cozy back up with the Russians, contend with Vero’s weird behavior, and deal with Detective Nick coming back around, not to mention Julian, the bartender/law student—and get her book in on time! That’s a lot for one person!
This really is such a fun series. It’s truly a source of sunshine and laughs amidst heavier books. Sure, it can be a little outlandish at times, but does it really matter?
BookSparks, Elle Cosimano, and Minotaur Books provided me with a complimentary copy of the book as part of #WRC2022. Thanks for making it available!
