I am an avid reader/lover of all of Janet Evanovich's books, however, I could barely get halfway through this one and finally just gave up. Very disappointing.
Meh...I wanted to like this book, it really had all of the components to be a funny and interesting book, but I really did not enjoy it and it to me was way low on the funny and interesting. It looks like it was a crack at another Stephanie Plum but it fell way short. I will not invest time in the series.
I thought this book was pretty good. Very clever, but a bit complicated with all the characters and details of the con. I love the Stephanie Plum series and this is not as funny but is still enjoyable. I did have a few laugh out loud moments. The main female character is not as ditzy as Stephanie Plum and I liked her a lot. I wish there would have been a bit more romance involved. The main characters are hot for each other but there is only one brief kiss that occurs. I would recommend this book and I am going to pick up the next in the series.
I started out a big Janet E fan back in 1998, with her Stephanie Plum series. After a while that got same old same old. I started listening to the Plum series because I enjoyed the narrators voices. The Diesel series didn't do it for me, I gave up after book one.
If you also found the above to be true, I think you will really love this series. I found it fun, exciting even believable. I love the FOX character, and I am looking forward to O'Hare becoming a more well rounded person because he is in her life. They make a great team. This is worth listening to that is for certain.
Loved this book! Janet Evanovich partners up with Lee Goldberg in a new series featuring Nick Fox, a well-known and wanted con man, and FBI Agent Kate O'Hare, who was a previous special-forces soldier, headed up the team to track him down.
After being caught, Nick makes a deal to help Kate bring in other wanted criminals through his special con-man expertise. The obvious sexual tension between these two just adds to their relationship and, so far, the series doesn't get mushed up with stupied romance. As a team, Nick and Kate are perfect together and the stunts they plan and pull off are excellent.
This book takes the reader through various countries and action. An excellent, quick read, especially for a vacation book, with great humor thrown in.
