Finlay Donovan Rolls the Dice is the fourth book on my most anticipated reads list of 2024! We read the first book in this series as a part of book club in 2023. “Finlay Donovan is Killing it” introduces us to newly single mom Finlay and her hilarious kiddos. She’s struggling to balance mom life and deadlines on her book. Her wild pitch to her editor is over heard by a patron at the restaurant and she thinks that Finlay is pitching her services to dispose of a real body. This wild interaction sets off a series of events that has now spanned 4 books.

You most certainly need to have read the first three books before this one, as the story line continues to grow from the books prior. This one had references to all three prior books, and you may need to brush up on the events of the third book if it’s been a while since you’ve read it.

As always, there are some relatable mom life moments and some great reminders about giving yourself grace while balancing it all.

Finlay Donovan Rolls the Dice Summary:

I loved being back with Finlay and Vero because these two never fail to make me laugh (and worry). This time, they are on the way to Atlantic City to win back money to pay off Vero’s debt and to find Javi. But as with everything with these two, nothing is as easy as they would hope it could be. Can these two figure out what is really happening and who is behind it before the police catch on?!

Finlay Donovan Rolls the Dice Rating:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5, fade to black/suggestion of spice

Moments in this one felt much more far fetched than events in the first three which is the only reason I’m giving it 4.5 stars instead of 5!

Favorite Quotes:

“You deserve opportunities, Finlay.”

“And you know what else you deserve? Someone who’ll be honest with you, even if you don’t want to hear it. Sometimes that means being with someone who’s going to make you face what you’re afraid of, because he’s planning on standing right behind you, covering your back.”

“I didn’t feel guilty for asking him to do his part. I just felt foolish for waiting this long to put my foot down.”
