Chasing Mona Lisa Book Tour


About the book:
It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci's masterpiece before it falls into German hands?

With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers' adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on--and the runners are playing for keeps.

What did I think?  The story takes place during World War II in a German occupied Paris.  You will find yourself intrigued and mystified as Gabi and Eric work with French Resistance to save an amazing piece of artwork the Mona Lisa.  A little bit of mystery , a little bit of romance entwined with urgency and history will captivate you as you read on.

This book is the sequel to Swiss Courier , which I have not read.  I had no problem following along with the story and characters.   I enjoyed being taken back to a little piece of history while enjoying a great story and would not hesitate to pick up another book from these authors.
