ARC Review: Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun

Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun by Elle Cosimano
Finlay Donovan series book 3
Publication date: 31 January 2023

I am a latecomer to the Finlay-verse, and damn I’m kicking myself for not reading these books sooner! I’ve always heard great things about them, I even bought the first one, but as usual the TBR overflowed and I never got to it. Then when I saw book three on NetGalley I jumped on it as this would be the thing that finally forces me to read the series.

First off, I have to say I love Finlay and all of the unfortunate situations in which she finds herself. This time, she’s managed to get herself invited to a citizen’s police academy in order to track down the identity of a mysterious contract killer. Oh, and she’s doing this on orders from the Russian mob. Just another day at the office for Finlay, right? She and Vero (my favorite person, seriously) again find themselves in ridiculously hilarious situations and I am here for all of it. Add in hot cop Nick, an intrusive ex-husband, and a toddler terrorizing a Walmart dressing room, and you have yet another entertaining romp of a story. Definitely recommended, but this is not a standalone so make sure you read the first two books before tackling this one.

Thank you to NetGalley and to Minotaur Books for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
