Finlay Donovan is back! She’s still a writer, struggling to crank out her next novel while juggling life as a single mom. In this book she’s no longer suffering from mistaken (hitman) identity, but now finds herself trying to figure out who has put a hit out on her ex-husband. (And keep him safe in the process!)
As with the first book, this is a wild ride – full of laughs as Finlay does her best to investigate (but continues to get herself into trouble) and a little romance as she tries to navigate her feelings for law student Julian and Nick the (hot) detective. I enjoyed this sequel just as much as the original – the story propels forward, the characters continue to develop, and it’s just as funny as the first outing with Finlay.
As a side note: this is the second book in the Finlay Donovan series. I do recommend starting with the first book. You can start here, but it does have spoilers for the first mystery.
This is once again narrated by Angela Dawe, who is a great voice for Finlay. I especially enjoyed listening to the interactions between Finlay and her best friend/nanny Vero. Highly recommend listening to both Finlay Donovan books, they are just so much fun!
Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this audiobook.
