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: Trick or Treat Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #3) by Leslie Meier

book review trick or treat murder by leslie meier

Trick or Treat Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #3) by Leslie Meier is set in Tinker's Cove, Maine, and the entire town is preparing a party in a dilapidated mansion to celebrate Halloween. However, everyone is on edge because there has been a rash of fires thought to be the work of an arsonist. The latest one killing a summer resident. Who will be the latest victim?

Is anyone else a fan of Halloween like I am? This was the perfect book to put me in the mood for the holiday, and this is a must read if you do like Halloween. It brought back so many memories of my childhood of trick or treating and the Halloween parties that my parents and the rest of the parents in the neighborhood put on for us kids that were similar to the one in Trick or Treat Murder.

Having an arsonist setting fires in the book only made it creepier, but not scary. There were quite a few red herrings in the book. With that being said, there were clues to who it really was, and I dismissed those clues much to my chagrin.

The side story of Trick or Treat Murder is about the pitfalls of motherhood and having a new baby. Some of the things Leslie Meier talks about in the book is breastfeeding and not being able to keep up with the housework, so if either of these things are perplexing to you, you probably should pass on this book because it's mentioned quite a bit. With that being said, it didn't bother me in the least, but you never know what might upset people.

Four out of five stars is what I gave Trick or Treat Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #3) by Leslie Meier. If you enjoyed this book, I'd recommend Plum Spooky (Stephanie Plum, #14.5) by Janet Evanovich, or for those who read books in the Young Adult genre, I recommend Trick or Treat by Richie Tankersley Cusick.
