Summary of review:
This is a step up from a cozy mystery for sure. If you like cozy mysteries but want something a little less “fluffy,” then this is the book for you!
Finlay is a single mother who is fighting her ex-husband and his fiancé for custody of her child. She is also struggling finically as she has writer’s block, and her books are not selling.
Finlay is discussing her plot for her next book with her agent, and someone hears her. They mistake her for a contract killer. The lady gives her a hit and offers her a lot of money. She goes to just check it out without actually going to kill anyone. But she gets wrapped up in a real-life murder mytery and investigation. Can Finlay solve the crime before the police? Can she erase her involvement with the crime before she is a suspect?
This is a great mystery book. The book is a step up from a cozy mystery for sure. If you like cozy mysteries but want something a little less “fluffy,” then this is the book for you! I liked the writing style as well. It was a little crazy with everything that was happening in the story. But it all worked for this novel.
The characters were relatable. There were parts of the story where I laughed and/or was on the edge of my seat. The mystery aspect was great too! I enjoyed following the clues with the main character.
The plot was unique as well. It was like she was investigating a crime that she was involved in! HA! But it was a little too “over the top” for me. But overall, it was entertaining and a fun read!
I will read the sequel when it comes out!
I really enjoyed this book. It was entertaining! I laughed and was on the edge of my seat at times. The characters were relatable as well.
Finaly Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead will be released Feb 2022.
