Can’t Wait Wednesday – FINLAY DONOVAN JUMPS THE GUN by Elle Cosimano


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is FINLAY DONOVAN JUMPS THE GUN by Elle Cosimano.  I love this thriller/cozy mystery series so much! Finlay and Vero are such a hoot and I can’t wait to see what kind of shenanigans they get up to in this new book.



Publication Date:  January 31, 2023 by Minotaur Books

From Goodreads:

Author and single mom Finlay Donovan has been in messes before—after all, she’s a pro at removing bloodstains for various unexpected reasons—but none quite like this. When Finlay and her nanny/partner-in-crime Vero accidentally destroyed a luxury car that they had “borrowed” in the process of saving the life of Finlay’s ex-husband, the Russian mob did her a favor and bought the car for her. And now Finlay owes them.

Mob boss Feliks is still running the show from behind bars, and he has a task for Finlay: find and identify a contract killer before the cops do. The problem is, the killer might be an officer themself.

Luckily, hot cop Nick has just been tasked with starting up a citizen’s police academy, and combined pressure from Finlay’s looming book deadline and Feliks is enough to convince Finlay and Vero to get involved. Through firearm training and forensic classes (and some hands-on research with a tempting detective), Finlay and Vero use their time in police academy to sleuth out the real contract killer to free themselves from the mob’s clutches—all the while dodging spies, confronting Vero’s past, and juggling the daily trials of parenthood.

    This whole scenario sounds like such madcap fun:)). I’ll have to check this series out, as I am on the hunt for entertaining reads that make me laugh, along with the adventure. Thanks for sharing, Suzanne:).

    More Finlay Donovan – Yes, please! I didn’t realize stuff from the previous books is still unresolved. I do hope we get somewhere with Finlay’s romantic life though.
