Description

"Angela Dawe's narration makes YA author Elle Cosimano's debut novel for grown-ups a wild and funny romp...Dawe offers Cosimano's laugh-out-loud moments with just the right sparkle." (AudioFile Magazine)

IT’S MURDER BEING A HIT-MOM

"Getting the job done" for one single mom takes on a whole new meaning in Finlay Donovan is Killing It, a deliciously witty adult debut - the first in a brilliant new series from YA Edgar Award nominee Elle Cosimano.

FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT...except, she’s really not. The new book she promised her literary agent isn’t written, her ex-husband fired the nanny without telling her, and this morning she had to send her four-year-old to school with hair duct-taped to her head.

When Finlay’s overheard discussing the plot of her new novel with her agent over lunch, she’s mistaken for a contract killer and inadvertently accepts an offer to dispose of a problem husband in order to make ends meet...and she soon discovers that crime in real life is a lot more difficult than its fictional counterpart.

loved!

Great story and entertaining performance! Found myself giggling out loud more than once. Loos ends were tied up...but small twist at the end that leaves a possibility of a sequel.

So fun!

I loved this audiobook. The narrator is awesome and the story is delightful! It was smart, laugh out loud funny, and full of twists and turns. The premise is a bit like the show Breaking Bad - ie a normal person and their sidekick enter a life of crime without really meaning to get into the crazy, escalating situations they find themselves in. Loved it and didn’t want it to end!

Fun, Smart, Fantastic Mystery

The book was brilliant and funny with just enough twists to keep you guessing.

Angela Dawe captured Finlay’s voice and really brought the audio to life. Great voice.

Definitely need to find more books by Elle Cosimano.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

This was truly a mystery unlike any other it's read. It's amazing how easily we can get ourselves caught in a situation we really don't want to be in. Finley was a magnet for just those types of situations. With her nanny/accountant by her side, this book is laugh out loud funny, cringe worthy and just hands down, really good overall. This book should so be turned into a movie starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and it would be an absolute hit at the box office. If you've read it, you know what on talking about. If you haven't, what are you waiting for?!

A Hilarious Hit Gone Awry

Struggling single mom Finlay Donovan gets mistaken for a hit woman. All hell breaks loose in fantastic hilarity.

As a constantly sticky mom of toddlers, I identified with Finley Donovan from the very first sentence of the book. Fortunately, that’s where our similarities ended. She goes on to make colossally horrible decisions but instead of detracting from the story, they enhanced the ensuing circus of events. There were some glaringly unbelievable elements, especially when it came to Findlay’s involvement in every aspect of the storyline. All in all, Cosimano somehow stacks these silly concepts together and makes a house of cards that precariously but defiantly stands on its own. Fast paced and entertaining, it was an enjoyable read, fondly reminding me of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonovich.

Audiobook This was a great narration. Dawe’s rendition fits Finlay perfectly. She has amazing character definition! I knew exactly who was speaking before being told so.

Cute, but unrealistic

The characters are well-developed and I like the whole woman power vibe of the book, but the plot was a bit fantastical.

I hope there is a sequel featuring Finlay

Thank your GR friends Tina, Yun, and MarilynW for your enthusiastic review of “Finlay Donovan Is Killing It”. I needed this fun book, and it was a fantastic audio! Narrator Angela Dawe is amazing with her voices. She is one of the best narrators I’ve listened to.

Finlay Donovan is a romantic suspense author who is in a writing slump. She’s behind on her novel and her publicist is on her to get it done. While discussing her situation with her publicist, a woman at the coffee store overhears their conversation and mistakenly thinks that Finlay is a hitwoman. She thrusts money at Finaly, asking her to kill her husband, who she says is a very bad man. Once the killing is done, she’ll get the next half.

Meanwhile, Finlay is divorced with two young children. She rarely gets out of the house clean and put together. All moms can relate: those days when you have maple syrup in your hair, drool on your blouse, and a barely washed face. She needs money, and her ex and his fiancé are threatening to take full custody of her children.

She decides to check out this husband and determine just how bad he is. In a hilarious situation, Finlay somehow ends up with the man dead and in her possession. Her ex-babysitter, who every woman I know would want as a babysitter, gets involved.

Oh, and Finlay’s sister is a policewoman. This is an almost mad-cap story about two women who inadvertently get involved with dead bodies, and of course the mob. It’s silly, yet clever. I chuckled through most of the story, as all the situations that Finlay unwittingly gets involved in are believable (sort of).

This is a fun romp that is very adeptly written. Author Elle Cosimano is a known YA author, and I hope she writes another adult novel. In fact, I hope that Finlay returns! I would love to read another story featuring her.

Good humorous fun!

Finlay Donovan is a character a lot of women can identify. She is newly divorced from a cheating spouse, had two small children and and ex who is making her life miserable. Little did she know things are about to become more complicated! Throw in a little murder, mystery and two men who are interested in her and you have a fun, fast paced listen.

So much fun!

I wasn't sure when I started it that I would like it but it surpassed all my expectations. Fun, funny, warm, and oh so deftly plotted. Can't wait for the next one.
