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: The Professor (Detective Marlitt Kaplan, #2) by Lauren Nossett

book review The Professor Detective Marlitt Kaplan #2 Lauren Nossett

The Professor (Detective Marlitt Kaplan, #2) by Lauren Nossett continues where The Resemblance (Detective Marlitt Kaplan, #1) left off.  Marlitt Kaplan is recovering and is recruited by her mother to look into the death of a student and exonerate a professor.  Going undercover, nothing is as it seems.  Will Marlitt be able to prove that Dr. Verena Sobek is innocent in time?

I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book for free in exchange for my honest review from NetGalley.  Having read Nossett's debut novel, I couldn't wait to read the sequel.  At the same time, I was unsure if it would live up to its predecessor, so I put off reading the story for a while.

It's been quite a while since I finished reading The Professor, but I find myself still thinking about the story and characters and wanting to lose myself in the story all over again.  I am hoping for another installment and that this will end up being a long running series.  For whatever reason, this book and series has just really stuck with me.

From the first page all the way to the last page, Lauren Nossett weaved an intricate story that absolutely captivated me.  It was one of those books that I couldn't wait to finish, but at the same time, I didn't want it to end.  I totally wanted to play hooky from work to finish it!

Although the author does recap what happened in the first novel throughout The Professor, it's best to read the first book before reading this one.  Five out of five stars is what I gave this book.
