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: St. Patrick's Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #14) by Leslie Meier

book review st patricks day murder leslie meier

In Tinker's Cove, Maine, the dead body of grizzled barkeep, Dan Malone, is found in the town's harbor. Reporter Lucy Stone takes it upon herself to learn more about Malone and who might want him dead and suspects local musician Dave Reilly and local contractor Brian Donohue. While the gossip mill going wild, Dylan Malone, Dan's younger brother, arrives in town to help direct the local church's St. Patrick's Day annual play, which compounds everything in Leslie Meier's St. Patrick's Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #14).

What can I say about this novel? I love it! Leslie Meier has definitely hooked me on this series, and I can't wait to read the other books in the series. The characters are likable, with a few exceptions of course, and the storyline is engaging. And, I honestly have to say, I didn't figure out the murderer. I had quite a few wrong guesses! I've been reading this series out of order, but that hasn't really detracted from anything, and I think I'm going to start reading the rest of the books in order.

There weren't really too many negative things that I could say about St. Patrick's Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #14). I found one typo where the incorrect character's name was used, which made me reread several lines over and over to see if I read it incorrectly. I didn't. And, even though this book was published in 2008, it surprised me that the main character, Lucy Stone, used a Rolodex to look up a phone number at work instead of just looking it up on the internet.

Four out of five stars is what I gave Leslie Meier's St. Patrick's Day Murder, and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. If you enjoyed this book, I'd recommend Spellcast (Maggie Graham, #1) by Barbara Ashford.
