    One thought on “The Pursuit”

    1. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/As I said just about a month ago . . . . Janet Evanovich has been a summertime fluffy nothing kind of fave for years now. I won’t go over the deets (yet again), just know that I’ve read errrrrrrything by her. Her books usually only take a couple of hours to get through due to their simplicity, and if you check out the paper versions you’ll notice that large font, wide margins and plenty of space in between lines not only make them easy on the eyes, [...]

    2. Nick Fox, top con artist, criminal and now secretly working for the FBI is back with his FBI partner Kate O'Hare in an action packed adventure. In a Mission Impossible style adventure Nick and Kate must infiltrate a Serbian gang to prevent a major disaster that could kill thousands. Pure fun, this was a quick read complete with the evil villains, slick action, lively banter and quirky characters that we have come to expect from this writing partnership. 3.5★With thanks to Netgalley and the pub [...]

    3. The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg is a 2016 Bantam publication. I knew I was going to love this series right from the start, but I didn’t know I would like it this much! My only complaint is that the last book left poor Nick in limbo and it seems as though I’ve had to cool my heels awaiting word on his fate for entirely too long… nearly a year, in fact!! GAW!But, the wait is finally over, and thankfully, my favorite, sexy, con artist, is alive, but has jumped from the fire in [...]

    4. Another 5 star book in the Fox and O'Hare series. Very entertaining and enjoyable! Started fast and never slowed down. Fasten your seat belts, because you are going on WILD ride.

    5. Everybody needs rocket launchers.“I’ll call my friend who left the guns for us in the park,” Jake said. “He can get us a rocket launcher.”“We don’t need a rocket launcher.”“Sure we do,” Jake said. “Nothing creates opportunity like a rocket-propelled explosive.”“It would also create an international incident. I’m going to be in enough trouble as it is.”Kate, Cosmo and paperwork.“You haven’t filed your form S-Q-zero-zero-niner,” Cosmo said.“I’m pretty sure I [...]

    6. Nick Fox is kidnapped by a smash and grab gang, to assist in a major diamond heist. However, he is double crossed and left unconscious for the police, and even Kate O'Hare's FBI credentials cannot save him from the Belgian police, which of course requires a jailbreak so Kate and Nick can help infiltrate the gang to recover the real prize stored in the vault(view spoiler)[, a deadly smallpox virus (hide spoiler)]. Of course, in order to get the gang to disclose where the real prize was stashed, a [...]

    7. 3.5 StarsThis was another classic Fox and O'Hare novel. Full of entertainment and action from the start. I did feel like it was missing some of the usual banter between Kate and Nick. It was there, but there wasn't enough of it in this one for me.All the other usual characters are in this one too, which makes for some extra comic relief.A fun and quick read as per usual with Janet Evanovich.Loving this series. Review also on my blog: EscapeintoaBookSite

    8. Great to see Nick and crew back in action, this time saving the world from a mad man hell bent on releasing a deadly biological weapon on the U.S Book 5 is brilliantly written with just the right amount of romance, action, and humor; I'd expect nothing less from this series! Can I please have the next Fox and O'hare book now? I'll trade someone a pile of Toblerones for it!

    9. The Scam ended with the abduction of Nick from his Hawaii beach shack where he and Kate were scheduled to get some R&R along with some nookie. Kate is determined to track down who took him and get him back. This is personal and she is going to make someone pay.It turns out that Nick has been kidnapped by Dragan Kovic, an ex–Serbian military officer and leader of the Road Runners, a group of smash and grab jewelry thieves. No panache at all. They need Nick to break into the Executive Mercha [...]

    10. Another clever entry in the series. This time the con is forced upon them after Nick is kidnapped by a crazy Serbian ex-military officer (the flyleaf says ex-Serbian military, but I just can't say that, he is still Serbian). One glaring error was toward the end, when Kate's name appears where the other female lead should be. I actually went back a page or two to see if I had missed something, then continued reading to see if that would explain it. Turned out to be just an error, and the proper n [...]

    11. After the ending of The Scam (view spoiler)[Kate went to Nick's place to meet up with him and he was gone and the place was a mess. (hide spoiler)], I have my fingers crossed that my second favorite (after Ranger from the Stephanie Plum novels) bad boy book boyfriend is OK. Update 8/5/16 *** Big sigh of relief *** Finally finished reading about my book boyfriend and all I can think is: Thank God, Nick is OK! =)

    12. This is the fourth book in the Fox and O'Hare series which focuses on FBI agent Kate O'Hare and criminal Nick Fox who was released from prison in exchange for helping the FBI. I might seem strange to rate a book as suspense and humour, but Janet Evanovich does a great job balancing both.In this book we pick up where the last one left off with Nick having been kidnapped. A Serbian jewel thief wants him to help his gang with a daring robbery. Kate, using footage from various neighbourhood cameras [...]

    13. I just learned that Janet Evanovich had a new series called Fox and O'Hare. I've read her other series, but just learned about this one, and of course, starting with Book #5. From what I'm learning, Kate O'Hare and Nick Fox have worked on cases before, and they have special talents and abilities that are used in these books.In this book, Nick Fox is kidnapped by a gang, to assist in a huge diamond heist. However, he is double crossed and left unconscious for the police, and even Kate O'Hare's FB [...]

    15. This book picked up where the other one left off, and was a lot of fun. Jake remains my favorite character, with full of great lines, like the following:“I’ll call my friend who left the guns for us in the park,” Jake said. “He can get us a rocket launcher.”“We don’t need a rocket launcher.”“Sure we do,” Jake said. “Nothing creates opportunity like a rocket-propelled explosive.”and“Well, I wouldn’t be much of a father if I didn’t occasionally blow up a castle for yo [...]

    16. 4.5 Love this series, love the narration(Scott Brick).Okay the rating is about how much I love the series, the plot was quite good. I enjoy Kate embracing the dark side a bit (i.e. bending the rules and conning the bad guys). Nick and Kate are finally somewhat on the same page personally. But you have to wonder what shoe will drop next. Fun, fun little series with a White Collar Con-Man (Nick) tied to an Excellent FBI Agent (Kate). If you liked the show, this is a slam dunk series you'll enjoySu [...]

    17. Not my favorite of the five books in this Fox and O'Hare series, nonetheless it did not disappoint. With these books you can count on getting a good dose of action, entertainment and good laughs.I've really enjoyed this series so far. Not sure if this is where it ends, but I'll be keeping my eye out.Unlike other books, not much goes "wrong" so to speak. Sure there are some diversions to the original plan, but those that weren't predictable, weren't extremely hard to deal with. The supporting cha [...]

    18. It finally happened! If you haven’t been reading these books stop now because this will spoil everything! Spoiler, Spoiler you have been warned!!!At the end of book 4 they finally got together! And for once I wasn’t disgusted that it was a fade to black. I liked that it was left to my imaginations. I know CRAZY! I was afraid that having Kate and Nick start a romantic relationship would ruin the chemistry between the two but it didn’t. There is just as much and the story is just as brillian [...]

    19. I am half way through this book and I am struggling. I love the characters but the constant and numerous French street names, building names and random food I am frustrated. Just when the story is getting exciting another French name pops up like a huge plot killing road bump. The story is good and I understand they are in France and Canada, but 100 less references would have help me out. I normally finish these stories in a day, today I am struggling to read each chapter :(

    20. This definitely wasn't my favorite in the series; it felt like it went on a little too long and there was a lot going on in this one. This series is at its best when it doesn't get too complicated.Having said that, I still enjoy Nick, Kate, and company and the type of humor in these books.Looking forward to the next one, but hoping I enjoy it more than this one.

    21. The fifth entry in this series is a breezy, fun, uncomplicated, anodine adventure-mystery-thriller romp. If you enjoyed the 'Blue Sky' era shows on the USA network, you'll enjoy this series.

    22. As I've said before- Ocean's Eleven meets White Collar, this series is always fun. A bit outlandish at times- but that is what makes it even more fun IMO.

    23. Unlike the most recent Stephanie Plum novel, the Fox and O'Hare series is still going strong.Set right after the conclusion of the previous novel, Kate O'Hare is on the trail of the kidnapped Nick Fox. While there is little suspense in that plot point, it is what comes after she finds him that really gets this book moving.Nick talks his way from kidnap victim to an integral part of the kidnapper's scheme to rob a diamond depository. But even that is just a small cog in a bigger machine. The kidn [...]

    24. #5 in the Fox and O'Hare seriesAnother fun episode in this entertaining series. Last time we knew that Nicholas Fox was missing, but we had no doubt that he was fine, and that turned out to be the case. He was forced to plan and participate in a diamond heist in Antwerp, leading to a much more serious planned caper. As he and Kate become further involved in a raid on a scientific lab (researching smallpox), they plan an elaborate con to thwart the bad guys. Of course it's very complicated and ve [...]

    25. What a ride! I loved this book and this series. Nicholas Fox has been kidnapped and FBI Agent O'Hare must find him.When she finds him, the fun begins. The action is constant, and the interest contagious. I found myself into the story and didn't want to stop reading. It took me two sittings to finish the book. It's that good.I'm hoping there are more books in this series.

    26. Lots of action and humor as usual, however the ending was somewhat of a let down. With all the big heists and exciting things that go on in these books why end like this??

    27. The anticipation was so great! I had waited so long. Finally, my hold was up and it was my turn to read this book. I could finally find out what had happened to Nick! Ohh, the guilty pleasure that awaited me! I could hardly stand it. I grabbed a Tolberone and started listening.Well, what a let down. Maybe it was because I waited so long. Maybe it was because I had built up to many high-held expectations of witty comments and classy but silly sexiness between Nick and Kate. (Maybe it was because [...]

    28. I am addicted to these Fox and O'Hare novels. Federal agent O'Hare and genius criminal/informant Fox work together to catch super bad guys across the globe. Working so closely together, they've managed to peek into each other's personal lives and even fall in Like. The Pursuit gives the reader a double whammy. The pair finish a case in the beginning chapters and quickly land a new case One they can't even put on the books. One that sends them to Belgium and the Paris underground. It's a con. May [...]
