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 witch upon a star angela m sanders

Witch Upon A Star (Witch Way Librarian Mysteries, #4) by Angela M. Sanders was published May 23, 2023 by Kensington Books.  Josie is excited to have her sister Jean come visit her in Wilfred, Oregon.  However, Josie isn't quite as happy for the reason . . . Jean is attending a workshop to become a certified life coach.  When two people associated with the workshop are found murdered, and Jean is threatened, Josie sticks her nose into the investigation.

A big thank you goes out to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Witch Upon A Star (Witch Way Librarian Mysteries, #4) by Angela M. Sanders.  I was happy to be approved to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  After reading this book, I'm now a fan of the author and can't wait to read the first three books in the series or for the next installment to come out.

I was pleasantly surprised that the story was so well written and engaging.  At times, it played like a movie in my mind, and I loved all the red herrings throughout the story that kept me guessing, and incorrectly guessing at that!  I couldn't figure out who the killer was or his/her motive . . . this is always a big plus for me because I don't like figuring out who it is right off the bat.

Most of the characters were very likable, even a few that shouldn't have been.  I loved the fact that one of the characters was a black cat named Rodney . . . he might have been one of my favorites.  Of course, I really liked the main character, Josie, and the sheriff, Sam.  I do wish the author had recapped the backstory of Sam a little earlier in the book, but other than that, I don't really have any complaints.

Four out of five stars is what I give Witch Upon A Star (Witch Way Librarian Mysteries, #4) by Angela M. Sanders.  This is a must read for anyone who enjoys novels about libraries, books, cats, and magic.
