Book Review: Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead (Finlay Donovan, #2) by Elle Cosimano

Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead (Finlay Donovan, #2) by Elle Cosimano opens where the last book left off.  Finlay is struggling with her next novel and trying to find out who put a hit out on her ex-husband and father to her children.  On top of that, Finlay's nanny, Vero, is keeping secrets.  Will Finlay get everything done?

This is the second novel in the Finlay Donovan book series and is a lot better than the first book.  I can't wait to read the third book in the series.  I don't have any complaints about Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead.  I found it to be fun and entertaining.  What I found to be interesting is that yet again Finlay's agent and editor are bugging her for her novel and wanting her to put the cop back into it.  This felt very autobiographical to me.

I loved the the romance aspects of the story, but I hope it doesn't turn into a love triangle like the Stephanie Plum books do.  I hope Finlay does pick one of them and eventually gets married.  I have grown to really enjoy the characters and hope for a long series.  Steven and the kids have really grown on me, and I liked the character development of Finlay and Georgia's mom.  Additionally, there were some great twists and turns with one twist that I didn't see coming.

Five out of five stars is what I gave Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead (Finlay Donovan, #2) by Elle Cosimano.  This is a great series for those who love the Stephanie Plum book series by Janet Evanovich or those who enjoyed the television show Good Girls.
