The Bounty: A Novel (7) (A Fox and O’Hare Novel)
As a fan of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series and after reading The Big Kahuna, I was excited to pick up a copy of her newest book, The Bounty. Evanovich’s writing style is very light and the storylines unrealistic; however, they are entertaining and the best part is always the banter between the characters. In The Bounty, we are reunited with FBI agent Kate O’Hare and con man turned sidekick Nick Fox. It is a wild goose chase as Kate and Nick go on a treasure hunt around Europe looking for hidden ancient maps that will lead them to, yes, the eponymous bounty.
Although this was a fun little history lesson that went to places like the Eiffel Tower and the Swiss Alps, the story was not a new one and I became bored midway through the book, just wanting it to be over. The interaction between the characters was much less playful as they tried to defeat the Brotherhood, who are also after the hidden treasure. Both Kate’s and Nick’s fathers are also inserted into the story and although both characters are likable, it is just an unnecessary addition to the book. I’d skip this one.
