About the Book:
FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s twentieth-story Chicago penthouse of all its cash and treasures at the same time that the self-proclaimed “King of Hostile Takeovers” is getting married, Kate is 85 percent—okay maybe 92 percent—sure that she’s finally going to bag Nick Fox.
Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss, building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year. And third, what’s going to happen once O’Hare finally gets her hands on Fox? It’s going take a pro to catch a con before the fireworks over Lake Michigan go off.
I was excited to read another series from Janet Evanovich and hoped it would be even partially entertaining as the Stephanie Plum series. I thoroughly enjoyed this prequel and the set up for the series very good.
Kate O’Hare is a tough female in a man’s world, but holds her own against con artist Nicolas Fox. Kate was fun and quirky, but tough. There were definitely the times I laughed and the other times I was intrigued by the story. Even though this was a short story, it did not leave me wondering about anything. The only thing I wanted was more of Kate and Nicolas.
There seemed to be a fire between Kate and Nicolas and so I was excited to read the first book of the series.
