Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton
Janet Evanovich is an author I go to when I want something light and entertaining. She has a quirky sense of humour that will have you chuckling out loud while you read . Her “crime” novels are very tongue in cheek.
In Curious Minds, the authors deliver an interesting, funny story in which the hero, Emerson Knight, is an eccentric, socially inept personality with an innate ability to get into and back out of some serious scrapes. He is looking for his gold, which he is sure is being stolen by the bankers who are meant to be looking after it. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law and is working for said bankers. She is assigned Emerson Knight. Basically her employers want her to babysit him until he gives up on asking to see his gold.
What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the US. An evil plan is exposed and Emerson Knight and Riley Moon are just the duo to stop the madness.
The writing is fast paced in this page turner. Evanvovich, whether writing on her own and teamed with various other authors, never fails to satisfy.
We have a large selection of her novels at the Lanark Highlands Public Library for your reading pleasure.
