Book Review: Chasing Mona Lisa by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey
Lucky for the Venetian Lady, there are people who are willing to put everything on the line to see her safe and sound in the new, free, France. But can they get there in time to save her?
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed in this read. It wasn't awful, but it did not draw me in the way I was hoping. It was a great idea for a story line, but I think they took too long to get into the main plot. It was probably about a third of the way into the book before the Mona Lisa was really even mentioned. I know the authors wanted to make it true to fact and history, but I think there were almost too many details to keep my attention. I also felt there were a few too many sub-plots going on and a few references to a former book that seemed a little awkward having not read the previous book. It was just an ok read, unfortunately.
Even though it wasn't my favorite book, I want to thank Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
