Author: Janet Evanovich
Series: Knight and Moon
Riley Moon, a native Texan and recent Harvard grad, has landed the job of her dreams working for the esteemed Blane-Grunwald company. She’s low on the totem pole, and her first “big job” ends up being basically a babysitting job to the eccentric recluse (but incredibly wealthy), Emerson Knight. Knight decides that he would like to see his gold that is supposedly being held at Blane-Grunwald. When it can’t be produced, along with a missing Grunwald brother, an investigation ensues. The head of that investigation: Knight and Moon. Their investigation leads them running for their lives, across the country, underground, in to the federal reserve, and more before they uncover the true plot.
I have always been a big fan of Janet Evanovich. Her Stephanie Plum series is one of my all-time favorites, I love Lizzie and Diesel, and I have long thought that she should have kept her Barnaby and Hooker series going. This one fell kind of flat for me. The premise was good, I just wasn’t as invested in these characters as I usually am, and it didn’t hold my interest. Was it worth reading? Absolutely! Am I glad that I borrowed it instead of buying it? Yes, because I most likely will not be re-reading it. Will I read the next one in the series? You bet! I love this author, so I will definitely give this series a second chance to make a good impression.
