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: The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre by Elisabeth Crabtree

book review of St Valentines Day Cookie Massacre  Elisabeth Crabtree

The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre (Hatter's Cove Gazette Mystery, #1) by Elisabeth Crabtree opens with Kat Archer being assigned to cover the grand opening of Miss Dolly's Cookie Jar and Sweets Emporium  by the Hatter's Cove Gazette in Hatter's Cove, Florida. What is supposed to be an ordinary assignment, turns into a treacherous investigation when one of the employees at the 'Cookie Jar' is found dead.

What's not to like about this first book in a series? I absolutely fell in love with The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre, and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. Although, it's considered a cozy mystery, it has a bit of everything in the story, including a bit of humor. It was such an enjoyable read and one that I could see turned into a television series. One can hope, right?

For such a quick read, I was pleasantly surprised that the characters were as developed as they were. The writing was done in such a way that it played like a movie in my mind, and I felt like I was right there with the characters. The only negative thing I can say about The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre was that I was able to figure out who the killer was easily, but it didn't detract from the story.

Five out of five stars is what I gave The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre (Hatter's Cove Gazette Mystery, #1) by Elisabeth Crabtree. I can't wait to see what the next book has in store for me. If you liked this book, the I recommend reading Spying in High Heels (High Heels, #1) by Gemma Halliday.
