Book Review: Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4) by Elle Cosimano

Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4)  by Elle Cosimano opens with Finlay Donovan and her nanny, Vero, planning a trip to Atlantic City to pay off some debts, find Javi, and retrieve a stolen car.  But first, they come up with a cover story that backfires miserably.  Finlay and Vero have to be clever and sneaky to accomplish what they set out to do, but will they have to come clean? Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4) by Elle Cosimano.  This is one of the books I was most excited about being able to read before it was in stores.  I received the eBook for free in exchange for my honest review. The fourth installment picks up where the last book ended and ties up the loose ends from Finlay Donovan Knocks Them Dead (Finlay Donovan, #3)  . . . so much so that I thought that this was going to be the last book in the series.  However, Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice ends up having a couple of cliffhangers,

Book Review: Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake, #2) by Rachel Caine

Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake, #2) by Rachel Caine
After escaping prison in Missouri, serial killer Melvin Royal is playing a cat and mouse game with his ex-wife Gwen Proctor and their kids.  With Lanny and Connor in the protection of friends, Gwen and Sam Cade are hunting Melvin so they can end the game once and for all.

Rachel Caine proved that sequels are not inferior to the original with Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake, #2). Where do I begin? The book picks up almost immediately where Stillhouse Lake left off, so it's probably in your best interest to read the books in order.

 When I saw that it was being told from the perspective of several characters instead of just Gwen's perspective, I wasn't sure I'd like the book as well as the first one. However, it worked well, and it gave me better insight into what made all of the characters tick. The only downside was that I was in such a hurry to finish Killman Creek that I often didn't pay close enough attention to when it switched perspectives, and it left me confused for the briefest moment. I kept wondering if Caine would include any chapters from Melvin's perspective, but she didn't. There is a third installment coming, so I wonder if she will include his perspective in it . . . time will tell.

Killman Creek is action packed and pulls out all the stops . . . making you second guess yourself on the motives of some of the characters, namely Gwen. If it weren't so dark, it could almost be called a beach read. The book does a great job of wrapping everything up, and I can't wait to see what Wolfhunter River (Stillhouse Lake, #3) brings us. My guess is it will focus on another trial for Melvin.

Overall, I enjoyed this book quite a bit and definitely recommend the series to anyone who loves mysteries, thrillers, and/or horror books. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
