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.

Janet Evanovich is one of my all-time favorite writers. Her work never disappoints. Inside of here latest novel, Curious Minds, I am in love. The first page instantly nailed my attention to full alert. The danger roused my mind. Sending my heart pounding my and my eyes following along as the plot sent me racing forward. The characters are perfect. Creating the exact atmosphere and setting for the adventure and trouble ahead. Curious Minds is fast-paced, thrilling, and hilarious. Riley Moon is a small-town girl who has landed it big time in the work field. However, she is soon disappointed that her job turns out to be looking out for Emerson Knight. Then, the plot takes a twist when they are soon working together to figure out the mystery of what’s really happening with the gold and who’s behind it all. I thoroughly enjoy reading along as the pages were leading me to the end of the story. Truly a great set of new characters to love and a new well-written tale to add to my bookshelf. Overall, Janet Evanovich once again crafted a brilliant world of fiction.
