I was at the library with my son and got a chance to find some of the books which was great because my shelf was empty. I was glad to get this other series by Janet Evanovich because I have loved all of her other series. They had the first book in the series so I reserved the other books in the series so that I could read it all!! The Heist: A Novel (Fox and O'Hare) by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg was the first in the Fox and O'Hare series.
FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox—an international crook she wants in more ways than one.
Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail—particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman . . . even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems that Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: He convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with Special Agent Kate O’Hare.
Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kate’s dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work . . . if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.
I thought that this one was a really good book. I enjoyed the main characters a lot. Kate reminded be a lot of Kate from Castle and Jane from Rizzoli and Isles so I felt connected to her. The other main character was Nick Fox and although he was a "bad guy," it was still nice to root for him too. The dynamic between the two was funny and interesting. It kept you wondering if things were going to go right or wrong. Of course, you are going to have to pick up the book to find out what happens because I hate giving it away. It was I hope that you check out this book and the rest of the series at your local library or bookstore soon! I know that you will enjoy it as much as I have!! I can't wait to read the next one in this great series...as soon as I figure out which on it is!
