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: Karen's Witch (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #1) by Ann M. Martin

karens witch babysitters little sister ann m martinKaren's Witch (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #1) by Ann M. Martin is the first book in Baby-Sitters Little Sister, which is a spinoff of The Baby-Sitters Club. Karen Brewer only gets to spend every other weekend with her father and his new family. The biggest rule at her father's house is that she's not allowed to spy on the neighbors, which Karen ignores so she can spy on Mrs. Porter, aka Morbidda Destiny, who is a witch.

As a tween, I read a few of the books in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister book series, but because the series was a bit young for me so I didn't read very many of the books in this series. I decided to give the first book a read as an adult since I didn't really remember anything about it.

I was pleasantly surprised by the storyline of Karen's Witch. It was an engaging read with quite a bit of realism to it. Kids have such an active imagination and sometimes disregard parent's rules, so I loved that Ann M. Martin wrote a book about these topics and showed that there are consequences to your actions. It is a great lesson for kids to learn, and this book does in a subtle way as to not be condescending to children.

Karen's Witch (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #1) by Ann M. Martin is perfect for children ages five through eight, and I gave it five out of five stars. If you liked this book, I recommend Surprise! Surprise! (Sweet Valley Kids, #1) created by Francine Pascal.
