Book Review: Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun (Finlay Donovan, #3) by Elle Cosimano

Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun (Finlay Donovan, #3) by Elle Cosimano is the latest installment in the Finlay Donovan book series.  It opens with Finlay needing to identify who a contract killer is before Mob Boss Feliks does or else she will be killed.  Unfortunately, Finlay thinks the killer is a dirty cop, so she and Vero go undercover at a citizen's police academy to figure out who it may be, and chaos ensues. I'd like to thank NetGalley, St. Martin's Press, and Minotaur Books for the Advanced Reader's Copy of Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun (Finlay Donovan, #3) by Elle Cosimano.  I was thrilled to be approved to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review. Elle Cosimano has done a phenomenal job with this series making each sequel more believable.  After a rough start with the series, I've come to love most of the characters and the books.  I think the only character that I don't particularly care for is Finlay's ex-husband Steven.  Where I

Book Review: Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, #19) by Janet Evanovich

In the latest edition of the Stephanie Plum book series, Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, #19) by Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Plum finally receives a high paying skip to retrieve . . . Geoffrey Cubbin, who embezzled millions an assisted living facility. When he mysteriously disappears from the hospital after surgery, Stephanie has to enlist Grandma Mazur to go undercover at the assisted living facility. To make ends meet, Stephanie takes on a secondary job with Ranger where her life is in danger.

There were a few books in this series that I thought were just okay, but the last few were better, and Notorious Nineteen was a breath of fresh air. New characters were introduced and Lula seemed to take a back seat for a change. I loved that Joe Morelli and Ranger were both featured heavily. Even though the storyline followed the same formula all the other books in this series do, it was more interesting and a bit different from all of the other storylines. It seemed more mature for lack of a better word and less like a cozy mystery.

What I love about this book and the others in the series is that it's an easy, fun read that lets me escape reality for a brief time. I keep hoping that Stephanie will choose between Joe Morelli and Ranger, but despite her saying she wants Joe, Stephanie always ends up fooling around with Ranger. What I love about this book is that there are two main mysteries that intertwine with each other that are of course solved and wrapped up at the end. Of course, there are the laugh out loud moments. My favorite has to do with the nude beach scene. I gave Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, #19) by Janet Evanovich five out five stars and look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.
