Another book in the books!
I only have four more books to go until I reach my goal for 2016 of reading 20 books! Do you think I can do it? I sure hope so because I’m so close!
The Job by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg is the third book in the Fox/O’Hare series by the two authors. Again, we pick up following the story of Nick Fox and Kate O’Hare as the crook and FBI agent work together to nab some of the world’s most-wanted criminals. In this book, they travel around the world to bring down Violante who is the head of a global drug-smuggling ring. As always, they enlist their band of misfits to help them pull off this dangerous job.
After reading the second book in the series, The Chase, back in May, I decided to wait a while before reading another because I wasn’t a huge fan of it. This book had fairly high reviews on Goodreads, so I decided to give it a chance because I needed something super light after reading Pretty Girls. This book was slower than the others and, to me, the “payoff” in the end wasn’t as dramatic as I’ve come to expect. The Fox/O’Hare plots were more intricate in the previous books and the final schemes to catch the crook were more involved and heart pounding. While I’m completely invested in Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books and will read those as long as she keeps writing them no matter how formulaic they can sometimes be, this may be my last Fox/O’Hare novel for the foreseeable future. The two main characters don’t have to draw for me like they did in the first book of the series and the last two books have been disappointing.
