⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Wow, this book was everything I was hoping for in Finn’s story. I love the Muffin Man in the other books, but his story really showed who he is and that he should not be dismissed as some guy that was living on the streets.
Finn was a Ranger in the army. He lost everything that ever mattered to him on his last deployment and when he returned home, he used everything he had to find it, but had no luck. Drained of everything he had, he’s living on the streets of NYC until a woman shows up and offers him muffins. This chance meeting is what Finn needed to start living his life again, so he moved to the small town outside of Chicago that the Cortell Brothers and the crazy towns folk live. Five years after his devastating loss, he gets the shock of his life on a dark, snowy road one night, and his true adventure takes off.
This story was one of my favorites. It’s not as funny or light as the others, but it was such a great read. I loved the real Finn showing himself and the way that Antonio, Jack, and Carter all came together to help Finn. It was full of action, danger, haunts, and as always, great characters. I didn’t want to like Addie at first, but she grew on me. I love these stories and while I have loved all of the books, I’ve read of Giulia Lagomarsino’s I think this book in the A Good Run of Bad Luck might be my favorite so far. The banter is always fun in her books, but the danger and intrigue keep getting better. I give this book a 5-star review and if I could do it, I would definitely give more. I do love the Muffin Man.
