Blurb; Finlay Donovan is―once again―struggling to finish her next novel and keep her head above water as a single mother of two. On the bright side, she has her live-in nanny and confidant Vero to rely on, and the only dead body she’s dealt with lately is that of her daughter’s pet goldfish.
On the not-so-bright side, someone out there wants her ex-husband, Steven, out of the picture. Permanently. Whatever else Steven may be, he’s a good father, but saving him will send her down a rabbit hole of hit-women disguised as soccer moms, and a little bit more involvement with the Russian mob than she’d like.
Meanwhile, Vero’s keeping secrets, and Detective Nick Anthony seems determined to get back into her life. He may be a hot cop, but Finlay’s first priority is preventing her family from sleeping with the fishes… and if that means bending a few laws then so be it.
With her next book’s deadline looming and an ex-husband to keep alive, Finlay is quickly coming to the end of her rope. She can only hope there isn’t a noose at the end of it…
My Review; Another recent buddy read with Mel from Melanie’s Reads. We both loved book one so much we went straight into book two. These are best read in order and do not work as Standalone reads. Again another brilliant five star read we both loved and enjoyed. The same characters and setting. More drama. But this time it’s too close to home when it involves Finlays ex partner and father to her children.
Can Finlay and Vero turn detectives again and save her ex while keeping her children safe? All while working on her future novels? I just love her character so much she has to be one of my favourites. I’m so excited to see what lies ahead for her in future books three and four. Patiently waiting. A must read. A must buy. Highly recommend. Enjoyed and loved by us both. Hard to forget.
