Sometimes the best kind of surprises come in books that knock your socks off. Cue Final Donovan…
Thank you Minotaur Books for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: Finlay Donovan is killing it . . . except, she’s really not. She’s a stressed-out single-mom of two and struggling novelist, Finlay’s life is in chaos: the new book she promised her literary agent isn’t written, her ex-husband fired the nanny without telling her, and this morning she had to send her four-year-old to school with hair duct-taped to her head after an incident with scissors. When Finlay is overheard discussing the plot of her new suspense novel with her agent over lunch, she’s mistaken for a contract killer, and inadvertently accepts an offer to dispose of a problem husband in order to make ends meet . . . Soon, Finlay discovers that crime in real life is a lot more difficult than its fictional counterpart, as she becomes tangled in a real-life murder investigation.
This book really took me by surprise! I went into it thinking it was going to be really cheesy. Instead, it was completely hilarious and had the perfect amount of of thrill for it’s murder mystery vibes. Also, if you are a fan of Panera Bread, you will love this book! Yeah, Finlay was a bit naive most of the time, but the background intrigue kept me glued to every page. Super fun and refreshing read!
