Well, it’s another great addition to the Finlay Donovan story! In this story, Finlay is trying to stop a hit on her husband. She has to juggle her parent’s, her cop-sister, her cop love interest, her lawyer love interest, her book agent, oh yeah…and the mob. It’s an awful lot for her, but she’s a kick-ass heroine, and she can do it!
I loved seeing Finlay and Vero back in action together. There are crazy mishaps that land them in tight spots. I laughed, and then gripped my book with a bit of worry at times. It was a great mixture of emotional storytelling, and I loved it!
There’s always something magical about a first book in a series, and then I worry if the second book will live up to the very high expectations the first on set. In this case, it was a success. Book two is just as entertaining as book 1…and sets up book 3 nicely!!
I highly recommend this one, but ya gotta read book 1 first, because it was awesome too!
Where to Find This Book:
Read my review of Finlay Donovan is Killing It (Book 1)!
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 soccer moms disguised as hit-women, 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…
