About the book:
With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers' adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on--and the runners are playing for keeps
Chasing Mona Lisa is the sequel to The Swiss Courier and is the first book I've read by both Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey.
While it took me a while to get into Chasing Mona Lisa, once I finally did, it was a really enjoyable read! I haven't read The Swiss Courier, so I don't know the back story to Gabi & Eric, but I found their romance/relationship really sweet.
For some reason, when I started Chasing Mona Lisa I thought it was a suspense novel, but it's labeled Historical fiction. And while there is some suspense throughout, there is a lot more history - which was nice as well.
The one thing I didn't like about Chasing Mona Lisa is the foreign language. There wasn't always an English translation - so at times I found myself wondering what a word/phrase meant.
Overall Chasing Mona Lisa was an enjoyable read, had several twists, and if there is another book with these characters, I'd like to read it! :)
* I received a complimentary copy of "Chasing Mona Lisa" from the publisher to review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done All thoughts and opinions are my own.*
