After everything that happened during the last adventure, Reiley left the bank to work with Emerson. Though instead of working on the accounts of other people, she’s up to her eyeballs with the Knight family’s bank accounts and nothing is making sense. When Emerson’s old friend shows up because his island is missing, Riley is pulled into yet another mystery that Emerson is embroiled in.
I really love this series and the wacky characters that are in this series. I found this series by seeing it in the recently released books. The Lorelei King fangirl in me is so happy listening to her voice again.
Emerson was fantastic in this book, and since we know him, it was even better. Rylee, though still the most normal of the bunch, has really started to loosen up a bit more. We really get to know Vernon in this book. Due to Vernon being in the book a lot more, this gave Emerson a larger history than we had in the last book.
Similar to the last book, Emerson and Rylee are looking into a large and long-running mystery. A missing island is not a mystery the Emerson could ever pass up. He was so wacky while looking into the mystery, but then again he always is. The relationship between Rylee and Emerson is maturing nicely and they are becoming closer throughout the book.
I would also like to mention that the women are the only ones using the guns throughout the book. Emerson has never even touched a gun in this book.
After finally getting her dream job, Riley Moon is excited to start her career. When her boss goes missing and his brother sends her to try and talk Emerson Knight out of withdrawing all his gold from the bank, he life is turned on her head. Now given the task to babysit Emerson who is determined to get into as much trouble as possible, Riley can’t seem to get a hold of the situation.
This is not a surprise that I loved this book. I listened to the audiobook so I didn’t only get the fantastic writing from Janet Evanovich, but also the lovely reading from Lorelei King. I actually picked up the audiobook because I had seen the 2nd book to this series come out on Audible. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. It was hard to tell what Pheof Sutton brought to the book, but as his writing flows seamlessly into Evanovich’s I will see if any of his books can draw me in.
Similar to all of Evanovich’s books, her characters are quirky and interesting in their own right. Emerson Knight is cocky and quirky enough to have inherited the family mantle of Mr Mysteriouso. Rylee Moon is also an interesting character in her own right, but mainly because she puts up with Emerson’s shenanigans. Rylee is also a voice for the reader, and who says things that any sane person would say.
The plot was well thought out and made sense in a warped way. Though the plot was weird and outlandish. The authors managed to make all of the situations that the characters get in to follow a fully thought out plan.
I really like this book, and will pick up the second book in this series.
