“It’s a widely known fact that most moms are ready to kill someone by eight thirty A.M. on any given morning. On the particular morning of Tuesday, October eighth, I was ready by seven forty-five.”
The opening lines of FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT by Elle Cosimano hooked me. The scenes that follow had me scouring the Internet to make sure someone was adapting it for TV (I. Marlene King of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS is, never fear). And, upon finishing the book, I found myself constantly recommending it to people looking for a fun read.
The challenge of writing a book review for a mystery novel is, most obviously, spoilers. To keep this review spoiler-free, it will also be fairly brief. The novel is light on its proverbial feet with tight pacing and a twisty plot. There’s an incredibly fun, dynamic cast of characters driving the story, the majority of whom are women. Most prominent among these women is the eponymous Finlay Donovan herself, who I deeply wish I could hang out with in real life.
FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT by Elle Cosimano is, in fact, killing it and I am so happy to be one of its first victims.
