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: Explosive Eighteen (Stephanie Plum, #18) by Janet Evanovich

explosive eighteen stephanie plum 18 janet evanovichExplosive Eighteen (Stephanie Plum, #18) by Janet Evanovich finds Stephanie Plum returning home from a dream vacation in Hawaii, but it was everything but a dream. To top things off, one of the passengers is snoring loudly and her seatmate never got back on the plane from their layover in Los Angeles, CA. Upon her arrival in Trenton, Stephanie finds a random photograph in her bag and learns that her seatmate that never returned was murdered. Now, everyone, including the FBI, is trying to retrieve the photo from Stephanie.

When I first began reading Explosive Eighteen, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy the book or not, but the more I read, the more I enjoyed it. So much so, I spent several hours doing nothing but reading, which was a nice change of pace for me.

Things I absolutely loved about this installment of the Stephanie Plum series was the story behind why the Hawaii vacation went so wrong and caused Stephanie to go home a day early. I love the comic relief Janet Evanovich never fails to provide, and I know that the book will be wrapped up neatly, which is something I need with the pandemic and political divide in the United States. You've heard of comfort food, right? Well, I consider these comfort books.

What I had hoped for was a book that focused on Stephanie on vacation with either Morelli or Ranger . . . my pick being Morelli. I was disappointed that this didn't happen and felt like it was a missed opportunity. Based on the back story of why Stephanie came home early, it would have made for a great story that was a bit different from the usual.

I gave Explosive Eighteen (Stephanie Plum, #18) by Janet Evanovich 5 out of 5 stars because it was like going home again . . . I love knowing that even though I may not like everything that happens or characters may get on my nerves that Janet Evanovich can take my mind off of every day worries and give me an escape from reality.
