Review: Chasing Mona Lisa by Tricia & Mike Yorkey

*This is a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% mine.

In this sequel to The Swiss Courier, OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler are back and this time the are trying to rescue Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, the Mona Lisa before it falls into the clutches of the Germans. Set during World War II, the agents have their hands full as travel from Paris to a Swiss chateau, in a race to save the painting.

I read Chasing Mona Lisa with no knowledge of the previous novel, so it can be easily read as a stand-alone novel. I’m not a fan of reading books set during the World War II, but the plot of the Mona Lisa being stolen intrigue me. I thought the characters were well written, but there were a few to many German characters causing the story’s pacing to slow down. Normally, I find multiple plots can bring down a story, but they are all nicely tied together. There is a hint of romance, but the book is mostly a high energy, action-packed read.

Overall, I enjoyed Chasing Mona Lisa and I recommend it to all readers.
