Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton


From Random House:

Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of thrillers featuring the invincible and incompatible pairing of Knight and Moon.
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.

If you are a regular here, you know I love Janet Evanovich.  Ranger is my number one book boyfriend!  

Nat and I met her a few years ago.  She was just as awesome as I'd imagined her to be. 

Curious Minds reminded me why I love her so.  It's a great mystery with lots of laugh out loud moments and unique, quirky characters.  Emerson is like a new agey Sherlock, while Riley is his reluctant side-kick.  Emmie (as he's known to his badass Aunt) drags Riley into a quest to solve the question of where his banker has disappeared to and in his quest to lay eyes on his gold reserves.  Hilarious shenanigans ensue.  

I love this new series and cannot wait to see what happens next!
