Book Review: Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4) by Elle Cosimano

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 Worst Day (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #3) by Ann M. Martin

Karen's Worst Day (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #3) by Ann M. Martin opens with Karen Brewer starting her day off wrong when she has a nightmare and falls out of bed.  Things go from bad to worse for Karen, and she's sure nothing will go right.

This series is perfect for kids who aren't old enough to read The Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin, and it's also perfect for children who have divorced parents since the main character has parents who are no longer together.

As for this edition of the Baby-Sitters Little Sister book series, it gives kids a chance to see that if they're having a bad day that it can and will get better, and if parents read it as well, it gives them the perfect opportunity to discuss the topic with their child or children.  With that being said, nothing really happens in Karen's Worst Day.  It's just a day in the life of a six year old girl.  The best lesson of the book is that Karen apologized to the people she treated poorly.

I do love the fact that the television shows of Mr. Ed and The Muppet Babies are mentioned, but I doubt that many children even know what those shows are nowadays, and I'm very surprised that those shows weren't updated in the reprints of the book.  I'm not complaining about it . . . just making an observation.  Maybe it will lead to an uptick of parents tracking down those shows online to show their kids, which would be awesome in my opinion.

Three out of five stars is what I gave Karen's Worst Day (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #3) by Ann M. Martin.  I'm looking forward to seeing how the series progresses as I only read a book or two when they first came out.
