Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano
نویسنده: Elle Cosimano
IT’S MURDER BEING A HIT-MOM
When struggling crime writer Finlay Donovan takes on a life of crime normally reserved for her characters, she finds herself entangled in a real-life murder investigation. Witty and fast-paced, this murder mystery is perfect for fans of Abbi Waxman and Maria Semple.
‘Proves you only need to get mistaken once for a contract killer to solve all your problems’ LISA GARDNER
‘It is a widely known fact that most mums are ready to kill someone by eight-thirty AM on any given Monday. . . ‘
Finlay Donovan, single mum and floundering crime writer, is having a hard time. Her ex-husband went behind her back to fire the nanny, and this morning she sent her four-year-old to school with hair duct-taped to her head after an unfortunate incident with scissors.
Making it to lunch with her literary agent is a minor victory but, as she’s discussing the plot of her latest crime novel, the conversation is misinterpreted by a woman sitting nearby as that of a hit-woman offering her services to dispose of a ‘problem’ husband.
And when the woman slips Finlay a name and a promise of a large sum of cash, Finlay finds herself plotting something much bigger than her novel.
And, after all, they do always say: write what you know. . .
Finlay Donovan really is killing it . . .

I’ll tell you right now… you’ve never read a mystery like this one! Finlay Donovan Is Killing It. Is she ever, ha ha ha! When Finlay is accidentally mistaken for a contract killer things get all kinds of crazy. Well, that and absolutely hilarious. The events that take place are so ridiculous you need to read this book to believe it. Soooo many situations take place that had me laughing out loud – especially the garage scene. OMG! Haaaa! I really enjoyed Elle Cosimanos writing. The characters are extremely well written and the storyline is SO much fun!! A very original plot that is so refreshing. You won’t be able to put this book down. I definitely require more Finlay Donovan in my life!! – and that ending hints at this happening, so YAY! Dana rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
I freaking LOVEDDDD this book!! I devoured Finlay Donovan in one sitting, and found myself both laughing out loud and gritting my teeth at all the shenanigans that suburban Mom Finlay finds herself in. It was such a fun mystery paired with a sweet female friendship and I can’t wait for the second book. It’s definitely going down as a contender for my five star fave for February!

I freaking loved this book! I can’t remember when I enjoyed a character more than Finlay Donovan. The relationship between Finlay and Vero is a perfect mix of Lucy and Ethel meets Thelma and Louise. This highly suspenseful story is peppered with laughs, adding the perfect dash of humor to a character driven twisty tale. I loved getting to know Finlay and coming along for the ride! Thank you NetGalley and St, Martin’s press for my ARC. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Tonya rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
