Finlay Donovan Knocks Them Dead pick up right where Finlay Donovan Is Killing It left off. Someone wants her ex-husband murdered. Not that Finlay has not been tempted but she really wants to be off the list of professional assassins. She might be angry with the louse, but she sets out to identify the person seeking a contract killer.

Meanwhile, her romantic life is getting complicated since the last person a professional assassin should date is a cop, right? And then, why is her partner in crime acting strange? And why are people looking for assassins in a mommy forum? And how does she deal with the Russian mob?

Finlay has a lot of cups in the air. Can she keep them spinning?

I enjoyed Finlay Donovan Knocks Them Dead very much though it was less fresh and exciting than her first book in the series. It was at times hilarious, but if you think about it, the  mistake people made about her is very similar to the mistakes some people make about someone else in this book. That’s okay, it was funny. But let’s not see that kind of misunderstanding for a third time in the next in the series. There had better be a third in the works.

I received an e-galley of Finlay Donovan Knocks Them Dead from the publisher through NetGalley.
