Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun - Netgalley Review
Today! Today is the day I finally catch up on Netgalley Reviews. I really am ashamed how many months I am behind on some of them. But, here's the thing I say time and time again... There are some books that I talk about all the time that I assumed I've written a review about, until I check my handy dandy review journal and realize I haven't. *hangs head in shame*
Thank you @macmillan.audio for the listening + @netgalley copy! This book is narrated by Angela Dawe and she was able to do distinctive voices for all the characters; especially how I picture Vero to be.
Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun is the third book in the Finlay Donovan series. You'll definitely want to read the first two before you pick this one up. In this book Finlay is basically trying to uncover the identity of Easy-Clean, a contract killer who solicits jobs through an online forum. Scratch that, she is being forced by the Russian Mob. When Finlay thinks the killer might be a cop, her and her nanny, Vero, spend a week at Citizen's Police Academy training to scope things out.
Rating: 3.5 rounded to 4 stars. This book felt like a filler book too me. Sure we had Finlay and Vero's usual antics, but it didn't have the same feel with everything happening at the Police Academy. It was like they were trapped! I'm glad the love triangle between the cop and lawyer was decided. Will I read the next book? You betcha!
