The second installment of Finay’s story absolutely holds up to the first.
These books are so fun for comedic mystery lovers. You get the tense hold-your-breath scenes as well as the laugh-out-loud moments which help the pages keep turning. The characters are fully developed and you really cheer for them, and the mystery story was so well written that you won’t guess the ending.
If you’ve read much of my blog you know I love a strong female lead, and Finlay has delivered for me a second time. I can’t wait for the third book due in January 2023!

Back Cover Copy of Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead:
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…
