Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun


I love the Finlay Donovan series -it’s so ridiculous, over the top, & fun! I was so excited when I was  sent an ARC of the newest installment, Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun! I pretty much dropped all of my reading plans to binge this one back in November and I don’t regret it.

Finlay is back & while I thought the second book was a little tooo ridiculous, this one toned it back the perfect amount. After the events of the second book, Finlay finds herself with an impossible task. With the Russian mob watching her every move, Donovan is attempting to hunt down a contract killer. But the task is almost impossible especially since she suspects it might just be a cop.

I loved the setting of this installment. A citizen’s police academy, where Finlay and Vero learn how to use guns and get into all sorts of mischief is my idea of a fun read. I love that we got a bit more romance this go around as well, and finally we get movement on the one relationship I know we’ve all been waiting for!

This was the first book that made me really question who Vero is and while I like her, she seemed way shadier this go around. I’m anxious to see what the next book will entail as this story set us up nicely to dive more into Vero’s story next.

These books are so outlandish and just plain fun. If you like stories about women who can’t stay out of trouble or you need a good laugh, you have to pick this one up! Also the audio books are super fun to listen too as well!
