Waiting on Wednesday for February 12th

It's Wednesday!  And, that means it is time for another Waiting on Wednesday.

This week, I'm highlighting The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg.


Now, I don't normally read Janet Evanovich (which is shocking since I like light comedic mysteries), but I've been a fan of Lee Goldberg for a while.  I realize that is backwards in how most people are coming to this series, but there you go.

Anyway, this series focuses on an FBI agent and a con man who team up to take down other criminals.  Yes, there is a huge element of White Collar to it, however the stage for these books takes them all over the world.  And, since the FBI agent is a woman and the con man is a man, we've got romantic sparks as well.

This time around, they are racing the clock to steal back a Chinese artifact stolen from the Smithsonian by a former White House Chief of Staff before the theft becomes public and an international incident ensues.  Sounds like lots of fun to me.

And we don't have long to wait since the book will be out on February 25th.

  2. I haven't read Lee Goldberg yet but this one seems like a good one to add to the list. I've read the early Janet Evanovich books but they kind of got repetitive after a while.

    1. I didn't make it past the second Janet Evanovich book - they already seemed repetitive to me. I've mainly read Lee's tie in novels based on Diagnosis: Murder and Monk, and they were lots of fun.

    2. I have the Monk books on my wishlist. I really liked the tv show and I will have to try to get to them one of these days.

    3. If you liked the show, you'll like the novels, too. I must admit, if Lee weren't a So Cal author with book signings, I don't know if I would have read them either, but they are so much fun! Bump them up your wishlist a little.
