Description

'So much fun to read'
'I couldn't put it down!'
'I can't describe how much I loved this book'

Single mum and struggling crime writer Finlay Donovan is ready to kill someone by 7.45AM:
- Her two-year-old is slathered in maple syrup
- Her four-year-old has a new self-inflicted haircut
- Her TOTALLY VINDICTIVE ex-husband has fired the nanny without warning

But nothing is going to stop her from making it to lunch with her literary agent.
Not even being banned from the restaurant they're meeting at.

When the discussion about Finlay's latest crime novel is misinterpreted by a woman sitting nearby as the plans of a hit-woman offering up her services, Finlay is finally promised the large sum of cash she's always hoped for. Just not for her writing.

For this, she'll need to plot something much bigger than her novel.

They do always say: write what you know. . .

Murder, mayhem and - maybe - a touch of romance, the warm, hilarious and instantly-lovable Finlay Donovan series is perfect for fans of Emily Henry, Dial A for Aunties and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.
