Finlay Donovan Is Killing It was my first 5-star read of 2022. I had some pretty high expectations for this one and I’m so pleased that it worked out. In fact, it made me love it even more to discover that not only did it meet those expectations but it succeeded them.
The book follows Finlay, a novelist who is overheard while discussing her next book with her agent and is mistaken for a contract killer. When someone tries to hire her, it creates a catalyst for a series of events as Finlay falls down a bit of a rabbit hole. The story is great and hilarious and the mystery is genuinely interesting. The pacing is great and because that mystery is never overcomplicated, it means the plot moves along at a wonderful pace and the entire book is entertaining from start to finish.

It’s by no means perfect but No Exit is still a decent thriller that’s worth the time picking up. It’s fast-paced which makes for a fairly quick reading experience and despite the odd hiccup here and there, it’s almost entirely a constant push forward.
The story follows Darby who is forced to take refuge at a rest stop during a blizzard along with four strangers. While there, she discovers evidence of a kidnapped child and has to figure out what to do and who might be involved.

I’ve wanted to read Landline ever since it came out. Unfortunately, it’s taken me until now to actually pick it up but fortunately, I quite enjoyed it. The concept has always stood out to me and while I’ve read her three young adult books: Fangirl, Eleanor and Park, and Carry on. I hadn’t read this or her other adult book Attachments. I was intrigued by the plot of this book but also the fact that it was aimed at adults. I really like Rowell’s writing and I was curious to see what I would think when it came to a different target audience.
