MFOB featured book: Finlay Donovan Knocks ’Em Dead
In the hilarious and heart-pounding Finlay Donovan Knocks ’Em Dead, Finlay 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 has 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 is 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 would like.
Meanwhile, Vero is keeping secrets, and Detective Nick Anthony seems determined to get back into Finlay’s life. He may be a hot cop, but Finlay’s 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.
