NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Janet Evanovich, bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of mysteries featuring Emerson Knight and Riley Moon, a dynamic duo with instant and undeniable chemistry.
Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he's also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he'd probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.
What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.

Two interesting characters but not sure they qualify as a team yet. Quite different from the Plum series.

Cute, witty, and so packed with coincidence there is no chance to take any of it seriously. Far from the laugh out loud/can't stop talking about it "Ten Big Ones," but a very enjoyable introduction to a new sleuthing duo who may or may not end up in bed. About five hours of reading.

Curious Minds is a light hearted and fast paced caper story. It was a fun and quick read.

New characters to get to know. Fun and interesting. I like these two - Knight and Moon. I look forward to their next escapade!

Unlikely as the plot may be, unlikely is what Evanovich does best. I found this to be a hilarious romp through the American financial industry, and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Janet should stick to solo writing. Her Plum series was excellent. Not so the co-authored books. I'm very disappointed.

This is a fun, lighthearted mystery. The main characters are just quirky enough to be interesting without driving me crazy!

Riley: You had a strange Childhood.
Emerson: Everyone's childhood is strange. It prepares you for the strangeness of adulthood.
