A USA TODAY BESTSELLER!From Edgar-Award nominee Elle Cosimano, comes Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead—the hilarious and heart-pounding follow-up to Finlay Donovan is Killing It.”Cosimano skillfully combines suspense and laughs in the manner of Janet Evanovich’s early (and best) novels, finished off with a metafictional twist.”—New York Times Book Review”A funny and smart, twisty and surprising series.”—Megan MirandaFinlay 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…
Sometimes we need to get away and read something fun but not silly. Filled with substance but not too heavy. Just right.
Not quite as good as the first, but still a super fun book! Loved it, and I can’t wait for the next one!
Not sure what genre I’d put this under as it’s equal parts chick lit, mystery and comedy. I read the first book in my library app for free and couldn’t wait to get the sequel so decided to buy it. Definitely recommend reading the first one first as it was so funny and then this.
I loved this book. This series is so fun and keeps you on your toes the whole way through. Finlay is back at it, but this time she is trying to figure out who wants her ex-husband permanently removed from the picture. Her sidekick Vero, is always there to help but seems to be keeping secrets of her own this time around. Finlay somehow juggles a million things from her kids, to her mom, to the men in her life, to her writing career and also somehow is considered a hired assassin by mistake. If you liked the first one you will really enjoy this one too!
This story was great—just like the first one. But for some reason it took me several weeks to get through it. I just was not feeling it. Probably just in a slump, because it truly was an entertaining read! Teaser for a third book
Love this book, clean and very fun! I read the whole thing in 2 days. Great heroin, and sidekick.loved all the characters
