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: Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier

book review turkey day murder a lucy stone mystery 7 leslie meier

The small town of Tinker's Cove has a plethora of holiday traditions during the Thanksgiving holiday, including visits to the Brown Farm to see Tom Tom the turkey, attending the annual parade, and watching the annual high school football game. However, the celebrations go awry when Curt Nolan, a Native American activist, is found murdered in Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier.

As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed this edition in the Lucy Stone book series by Leslie Meier. Although I read this particular book in February, it's the perfect book to read in November to get into the holiday spirit. I'm not sure if there really is a Metinnicut Tribe or not, but it definitely makes me want to learn more about the Native American history in the United States because most of what I learned about this was during elementary school.

I found that many of the situations were very believable, including how late Toby and his friends arrived and didn't bother calling to let his parents know when he would arrive. He didn't consider that his mom might be worried . . . typical teenage behavior! The fact that his friends were surprised at how little there was to do in a small town like Tinker's Cove was very convincing too. The protest scene was credible as well, especially seeing all the ones on the news over the last few years.

There wasn't too much I could complain about in Turkey Day Murder. One thing is that Lucy's husband Bill was a bit of a jerk . . . again. I dislike that he's so old fashioned and wouldn't even listen to his wife, but I guess there are men out there that act like him. The other thing I didn't particularly care for, or understand, was that so many people were against the building of the casino.

Five out of five stars is what I gave Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier. If you enjoyed this book, you might enjoy Look Alive Twenty-Five (Stephanie Plum, #25) by Janet Evanovich.
