Finlay Donovan Rolls the Dice

Fast action and clever wit course through Finlay Donovan Rolls the Dice, the fourth installment in a wildly fun mystery series by Elle Cosimano.

Finlay "Finn" Donovan is a divorced mother of two and a chronically blocked romantic suspense novelist who, over the course of three books, has been up to her eyeballs in mayhem, mischief, and murder. She's been mistaken for a contract killer; she's kept her ex-husband safe from someone (other than her) wanting to kill him; and she's gone up against the Russian mob. Along the way, Finn continues to be wooed by a "hot cop."

The antics continue when Finn and her friends travel from Virginia to Atlantic City, N.J., on the pretext of a much-needed get-away weekend. The trip secretly involves Finn tracking down a stolen car; negotiating with a devious loan shark; and rescuing the long-lost beau of Vero, her bilingual live-in nanny, confidante, and crime-solving partner. The posse piles into an old Buick and sets off on a zany adventure. The passengers include Finn and her two young children; Steven, their father and Finn's jealous ex; Finn's overbearing mother; and Vero. Once in Atlantic City, when one dead body turns up--and then another--chaos erupts. Will Finn and Vero's ingenuity bring them enough luck to hit the jackpot for justice?

Cosimano (Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun; Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead) ups the ante, once again keeping readers laughing all the way through a maze of well-plotted danger. --Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines
