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 Monsters at Christmas by Laura Baker, Illustrated by Nina Dzyvulska

Monsters at Christmas by Laura Baker and illustrated by Nina Dzyvulska is a children's book about how monsters prepare for the Christmas holiday.  The expected publication date is September 5, 2023.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Children's Books for the advanced readers copy (ARC) of Monsters at Christmas by Laura Baker.  Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays, especially as a child, so I was happy to be approved to read this book.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Perfect for children that are toddlers, this book is perfect to help kids learn how to read with all the rhyming sentences.  It's a bit reminiscent of a Dr. Seuss book.  I like the fact that the book shows kids that monsters aren't always scary and can enjoy activities that others enjoy.

The illustrations were fantastic and fun to look at.  At the end of the book, the author asks if we saw the "Christmas Monster" in each scene.  I didn't even notice that this character appeared in all the scenes, so it was enjoyable to go back to find him.  It was a little like a "Where's Waldo" book.

Five out of five stars is what I gave Monsters at Christmas by Laura Baker and illustrated by Nina Dzyvulska.  If you're looking for a book to put you and your child in the mood for the Christmas holiday, then this is the perfect book for that.
