Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of thrillers featuring the invincible and incompatible pairing of Knight and Moon.

Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he’s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.

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 country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.

This is a new series coming out this summer and I finished this one very quickly. To me it reads like her Plum books, quick, funny and lots of action. I like that in a book!

Emerson is a smart, rich recluse that wants to see his gold being held by the investment firm. Riley is new that to investment firm and is assigned to watch over Emerson. I don’t think she knew what she was getting in to with that job assignment.

I loved how quirky Emerson is…from his estate, to the menagerie of animals to his meditation habits (at least we think he is meditating!). Riley is from Texas (yeah!) and just wants to do a good job and move up within the company. She is definitely not prepared for Emerson. But once she starts working with him, it turns out they are a good fit in figuring out where his gold is and the mystery behind the Grunwald family. Oh and I love that her nickname from the investment company is Moonbeam…makes her sound like a hippy and she definitely is not.

There are many characters and the book is fast paced which kept my interest from start to finish. It is definitely on par with the author’s other books and I can’t wait for a second book to come out in this new series.

We give it 5 paws up!
