Curious Minds Janet Evanovich & Phoef Sutton

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Janet Evanovich, bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of mysteries featuring Emerson Knight and Riley Moon, a dynamic duo with instant and undeniable chemistry.
 
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.

Praise for Curious Minds
 
“The one-liners fly at a ferocious pace. . . . Evanovich fans will find this closer in style to the Stephanie Plum novels.”Booklist
 
“Evanovich’s comedic timing and pacing are evident on every page.”—Daily Republic

  • Hilarity and mischievousness continue

    Evanovich continues the Knight and Moon series with all of the hilarity and mischievousness you expect. Continued character development of Emerson's cousin, Vernon, is laugh-out-loud funny. Does not disappoint. A must read.
  • A bit of fluff

    I'm sure you've read this book before. The plot is as old as pulp fiction. Iconoclastic main character leads the heroine on unlikely adventures and defeats bad guys bent on world domination. Witty reparte ensues. It's not the tense, highly charged James Bond version but the goofy, tongue-in-cheek Maxwell Smart kind of story. There is very little depth to the characters and it's barely worth a review except to warn others not to waste their time.
  • Another great story from Janet

    This story was entertaining and laugh out loud at certain points. When Guenter gets in the act in the gold vault, I couldn't stop laughing. Thank you for the belly laughs, I needed that!

    Looking for a fast paced, well written, totally unbelievable, action mystery this book is for you. Emerson is practically a Marvel Comic superhero, Riley is the perfect foil & the sub-characters are appropriately evil or endearing for their roles. A good beach read.
  • Interesting but would like to see where this goes

    Loved, loved, loved this book. I thought I would never enjoy another book/series as much as all the Stephanie Plum series. Well this does it! I read it non-stop start to finish. Laughed, cried, was frightened and intellectually challenged. Bravo to the authors. Now I will have to wait on pins and needles until the next Plum book as well as the next Knight and Moon book! Can't wait!

    Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich is A Knight-Moon Novel (first book in a new series). Riley Moon has just graduated Harvard Business and Harvard Law and has landed her dream job as a junior analyst at Blane-Grunewald in Washington, D.C. The second week on the job her boss Werner assigns her to Emerson Knight. Emerson Knight lives in Mysterioso Manor and is very eccentric. The bank has sent him numerous requests to visit since the death of Emerson’s father, but he has ignored each and every one of them. So, the bank sends Riley to Emerson. Riley is actually glad to get away from the office. Her boss is slightly smarmy and keeps calling her “Moonbeam”. Emerson presents Riley with an unusual request. He wants his gold (he owns actual gold bars). Riley explains that it is not that easy. So, Emerson will settle for seeing his gold and he would like a meeting with Gunter Grunwald. Emerson’s simple requests turn out to be not so simple. Gunter has disappeared. There is also money missing from six clients (Emerson is one of them). Riley and Emerson set out to get answers. They are in for one thrilling and dangerous adventure. Curious Minds had some snippets that I liked, but, for the most part, I did not enjoy Curious Minds. It was too silly to be enjoyable. We have an extremely eccentric millionaire. Emerson wears Converse sneakers (I liked that part), sleeps in a tent in the library, the weird house, the various zoo animals, extremely brilliant, etc. Emerson is many various characters slapped together (Sherlock Holmes for one and Richey Rich is another—I am dating myself with this reference). Let us not forget his Aunt Myra and the pet armadillo. I found the characters to be flat. If there is supposed to be chemistry between Riley and Emerson, I did not feel it. The “mystery” is no mystery. It is a storyline that must play out (we are not given the opportunity to solve the mystery). We follow Riley and Emerson as they investigate the gold issue and the bad bank men (another cliché). I was very disappointed by Curious Minds. It is not my type of story. I prefer more serious mystery novels (with a mystery that I can try and solve). I am just not a fan of slap stick comedy (I do not like the Three Stooges either). I give Curious Minds 2 out of 5 stars. I will be steering clear of this series in the future.

    After reading all the Stephanie Plum series they are a hard act to follow. CURIOUS MINDS was some what exciting but just couldn't compare to Stephanie, Lola, Joe, Grandma, and of course Ranger.
