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: Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum, #24) by Janet Evanovich

book review hardcore twenty four stephanie plum janet evanovich

Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum, #24) by Janet Evanovich takes place in Trenton, New Jersey. Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has her hands full with baby-sitting a boa constrictor, bodies appear without their heads, and zombies start appearing all over town. To top things off, Diesel appears in Stephanie's apartment and is being quite secretive for him.

Was I surprised that zombies made an appearance in this installment of the Stephanie Plum series? With growing popularity of shows like The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead, it didn't surprise me at all. Who can blame Evanovich for taking advantage of the popularity of zombie shows and adding an element to one of her books? I certainly don't blame her. I enjoyed that this put a slightly different spin on the series.

However, I didn't care for the love triangle in Hardcore Twenty-Four. I'm not a huge fan of Diesel and wasn't too excited about him making an appearance in this installment. Thankfully, he wasn't featured too heavily and played more of a supporting role than he has in the other book appearances.

This storyline did follow the same type of formula the rest of her books do with everything being tied up neatly at the end. That's one of the reasons I enjoy the series. Although I did enjoy Hardcore Twenty-Four, there were parts that I felt like it dragged a bit, which is the reason I gave it four out of five stars. If you enjoyed Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum, #24) by Janet Evanovich, I recommend In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1) by Tana French.
