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,

The Perfect Staging for Murder (Hamptons Home & Garden, #7) by Kathleen Bridge opens with the final scene television show called Mr. & Mrs. Winslow being filmed when an argument ensues between the screenwriter and the director.  A few days later, the director is murdered at the wrap party.  Did the screenwriter kill the director, or was it someone else?

Thank you to NetGalley and Beyond The Page Publishing for the Advanced Readers Copy of The Perfect Staging for Murder (Hamptons Home &Garden, #7) by Kathleen Bridge.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review, and I was excited to read it.

Since I hadn't read any of the other books in the series, I wasn't sure if I would be able to keep up with all the characters and get to really know them.  However, the author did a fabulous job of summing up the backstories of all the different characters so I didn't feel like I missed anything from prior books in the series.  I ended up liking several of them, and now I want to read the rest of the books that came before The Perfect Staging for Murder.

There was a couple of big twists that I didn't see coming, but one of the twists explained why two of the characters were getting close to each other.  I loved the fact that the book revolved around the television industry since I grew up in the industry.  I also enjoyed learning a little bit about the area as I don't really know much about the Hamptons.

The Perfect Staging for Murder (Hamptons Home & Garden Mystery, #7) by Kathleen Bridge was the first book I've read by this author, and it certainly won't be the last.  I enjoyed this cozy mystery a lot because it let me escape reality for a bit.  Four out of five stars.
