About this deal

I kept thinking I must be too dumb to figure it out—that in our universe, duct tape and hair somehow go together. I totally recommend this book to anyone except Chantel because I know her IRL and this shit would send her into orbit. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this book is that it both seems over the top and implausible and completely believable at the same time, which is quite a feat. It was also the same tone he’d used last month when he told me his landscaping business had taken off because of Theresa’s real estate contacts and he was flush with cash, and oh, by the way, he’d talked to a lawyer about filing for joint custody.

Overall, Finlay Donovan Is Killing It is a brilliant and entertaining read that had me hooked from the first page. Never intending to kill anyone, Finlay’s decision to investigate the husband leads to unintended consequences. Her writing is terrific, the characters well-rounded and completely credible, and the story will grab readers and not let go until the end of this romp.I am not ashamed to admit that 98% (yes I did the math) of what I read is romance, so I can safely say this is not my usual read. Until the wife goes missing and the police are looking for the missing man and now his wife as well. year old Finlay is a divorced single mom with 2 young children, 2 year old Zach and 4 year old Delia, and rapidly becoming buried in all the troubles coming at her from every direction. I absolutely adore Finlay, Vero, and Julian, the characters are so wholesome and relatable in this book. i think it made finlay a great character and her relationship with vero is amazing - they make such a great team!

Being the lousy decision maker that she is, Finlay proceeds to dig herself in a deeper hole as she tries to get herself out of this job. genuinely don’t remember deciding to give this a 4 last night, but i’m gonna go with it because i feel like unconscious reviews are the truest of them all? The ending is absolutely fitting and certainly opens the door for a full series, and I would love to see more from our scrappy heroine! Delia cried big snotty tears as Zachary rubbed toaster waffles in his hair and gawked at her from his high chair.The bad news is, caught up in my friend’s excitement, I requested (and received) an advance copy of the second book about Finlay, which is due out next year. Were you surprised that Finlay is so intrigued by the note that she actually decides to scope out Harris Mickler? The Abbott and Costello-esque relationship between Finlay and Vero is so expertly executed and fun and was the perfect blend of slapstick and solid female friendship; I always looked forward to their scenes together!

She’s behind on her bills, and now her ex-husband is engaged to their former real estate agent and is gearing up to fight for custody of their two kids. During several scenes, Finlay wears a wig-scarf and sunglasses to hide her identity, or while she’s masquerading as her ex’s fiancée, Theresa. Edgar-nominated author Elle Cosimano’s adult debut has everything I love—a plucky protagonist, perfect plot twists and Panera!

Not long after the Panera incident, Finlay is able to rekindle her relationship with her fabulous nanny, Vero and the two become, quite literally, partners in crime. This fiasco continues on a downward spiral when she is mistaken for a contract killer while discussing her latest book ideas!
