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: What Happened On Floor 34? by Caroline Corcoran

book review what happened on floor 34 caroline corcoranWhat Happened On Floor 34? by Caroline Corcoran was published on January 19, 2023 and is about Rose Rivers, who works at a newspaper as the day editor and will be getting married in a few weeks.  When the Will Forest, the night editor, goes missing in the middle of his shift, Rose starts obsessing with the case and can't help but look into the case.

Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of What Happened On Floor 34?.  I was happy that my request to review this book was approved, and I received this e-book for free in exchange for my honest review.

I was intrigued by this novel and couldn't read it fast enough . . . it was that engrossing.  There were twists and turns galore towards the last twenty-five percent of the book that had my heart pounding.  Once I got to the end, I was sorely upset at the ending.  I'm not going to go into detail as that would give the story away, but I'd be interested to know if anyone else hated the ending.

There were things in What Happened On Floor 34? that were reminiscent of The Girl on the Train by Rachel Hawkins . . . namely the main character having a drinking problem.  It also has similar pacing.  Fair warning, this book does deal with sexual assault, so it may not be for everyone.  

Most of the characters that were likable and some that were not.  However, by the end of the story there were a few that I ended up disliking immensely.  I love the setting of the story, and it definitely left me feeling uneasy while reading it late at night.  I would have loved it had it been storming while I read the story because it would have given the story additional ambiance.

All in all, I'd give What Happened On Floor 34? by Caroline Corcoran four out of five stars, and I look forward to reading more novels by this author.
