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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This madcap thriller from Elle Cosimano revolves around recently divorced mystery novelist Finlay Donovan, who is used to coming up with ingenious ways of hiding bodies. But the down-on-her-luck writer’s skills are really put to the test when someone overhears her talking with her editor and gets the wrong idea, offering her a job as a killer for hire. Cosimano never takes her foot off the gas as Finlay navigates the bizarre twists and deadly fun turns that follow. We loved this book’s perfect combination of over-the-top excitement and laugh-out-loud humor. (Aren’t you curious how Finlay gets herself permanently banned from Panera?) Narrator Angela Dawe captures the voice of the novel’s frazzled single-mom protagonist as she deals with shady mafiosi, a distasteful ex-husband, and dirty diapers. Finlay Donovan Is Killing It is a screwball comedy for the modern age and a fun murder mystery rolled into one.
