Book Blurb

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.

My Thoughts

I don’t really know a lot about old art pieces, but I do like to read about them, and reading Chasing Mona Lisa was filled with detailed information about this wonderful painting. All of this information clearly shows the amount of time the author spent in researching this book, and how well she planned the writing of this book.

But for me, even though the history part was interesting, the book was difficult for me to read. It just didn’t grab me in the way I like for books to do. We follow the journey of the Mona Lisa that Colette is to be protecting, whatever the cost. In this fast pace chase trying to protect this piece of famous art, the authors have created characters that are powerful and brave, and willing to do whatever it order to make sure no one gets their hands on this painting.

If you enjoy art and history, you would enjoy reading about the Mona Lisa piece of art. I recommend that you purchase this book and see for yourself what you think of it!

I was provided a copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity Group. I want to thank Amy for making sure I rec’d this book, even though the publisher didn’t send it in time for the tour. The opinions in this review are mine only.
