About the Book:
It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci's masterpiece before it falls into German hands?
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.
Want to read an excerpt?My Take:
If you are a Tricia Goyer fan, you are not going to be disappointed in this book! Tricia and Mike have managed to come together and swipe a page from history and make it current, believable and an unforgettable race against time. While I didn't read the first book (I want to now tho'), I didn't find myself totally lost in this book. I would suggest reading the first one if you have the chance, but Chasing Mona Lisa can be read as a standalone. The historical research is immense in this book and very well done. I thought I knew a lot about this time period, but I picked up many bits and pieces that I had no idea happened. It was not a quick read for me, the French language (I took Spanish) slowed me down since I just had to make sure I was reading it correctly, and there is so much action that I had to take my time to make sure I knew who was doing what and when!
The only reason it was a PG rating from me is because of the nature of war...there is violence in this book, but war is violent. If you are a fan of historical novels and especially WW2 era, pick this up today! My mom really liked this one too!
