Finlay Donova Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano is an entertaining mystery story. Finlay is a single mom, a writer, and accidentally becomes a contract killer. Her life is complete chaos, and only her quick wit can save her.
Finlay Donovan is a divorced mom of two toddlers and her life is in total chaos. Her husband, Steve, left her for their realtor. He took everything including the house, and is now threatening to take custody of their kids too. Finlay’s life keeps going from bad to worse and she can’t just seem to get a break. Clearly, she’s hardly killing it.
Bad things keep happening to Finlay so fast she could barely catch her breath. That’s exactly how she ends up in this fast-paced, witty, and entertaining murder mystery. When Finlay accidentally gets hired as a contract killer, she quickly learns the life of crime is best lived in the stories in her head. Fortunately, Vero (her live-in nanny) is willing to help Finlay with anything, even if it involves burying a body.
This was such a fun story! It’s definitely over-the-top, unlikely, and the pieces fit together too neatly. However, all of that works great in this story because it’s part of the comedy.
I really enjoyed this story and the fantastic audiobook narration. Give this story a try if you’re looking for a light and funny mystery.
