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.
This book wasn't quite what I was expecting, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. I was expected a fast-paced adventure story about finding the Mona Lisa and chasing it around the world to keep it safe. And that did happen, it just didn't happen until about 3/4 of the way through the book. The first 3/4 of the book was full of the character and plot development that worked its way nicely into the suspense and adventure at the end. I liked all of the characters and felt that the authors descriptions, especially of Switzerland, were right on and accurate and I really appreciated that.
So while I didn't love this book, it was still a good read. 3 stars.
