Finlay Donovan is a struggling suspense novelist and stressed out single mom. Her fiction turns dangerously close to the truth when she’s mistaken for a contract killer after being overheard discussing the plot of her novel with her publisher. She inadvertently accepts the offer to dispose of a problematic husband in order to make ends meet and sets off a string of wildly hilarious consequences. “Getting the job done” takes on a whole new meaning as Finlay adds “hit-mom” to her resume.
There is never a dull moment in this off-the-wall series starter. Part comedy of errors, part genuine thriller there is plenty of humor, bad decisions, satisfying twists and memorable characters. This book is perfect for fans of Stephanie Plum. The book ends with a massive cliffhanger so get ready to place a hold on the second book in the series too, Finlay Donovan Knocks Em Dead. I can’t wait to read the third book in the series coming out next year called Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun.
