Janet Evanovich is back, teamed up with new author, Phoef Sutton, to bring readers a new series, Knight and Moon, centered around eccentric millionaire Emerson Knight and Harvard grad turned junior analyst, Riley Moon. When Riley lands her dream job at Blane-Grunwald as a Junior Analyst, she never dreamed that her first assignment would be to placate millionaire introvert, Emerson Knight. When the babysitting assignment gets turned upside down and an inquiry about missing gold in the Knight account leads to a missing man, more missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country, Riley begins to wonder where she went wrong. Can Emerson and Riley team up to find the missing man and Emerson's gold before they themselves get terminated?

I immediately was sucked into this story by the zany characters and the dialogue between Emerson and Riley, as only Riley can get away with saying in all seriousness, "Crap on a Cracker!" While the storyline is a bit convoluted, if you simply want a story to enjoy, this is the book for you. In addition to two strong lead characters that have constant funny interactions, this story also contains an entire host of eccentric supporting characters from Knight's housekeeper to Moon's brother, all making for a richer, more entertaining read. I look forward to the character relationship development in book two between Emerson and Riley, as they have great chemistry. Overall, I think this is a good start to a new series full of action and intrigue, and I am optimistic that it will continue to evolve and grow into a great series.
