I think I'm getting tired of the Fox and O'Hare series. The book was entertaining somewhat but on the whole it wasn't as good as other books in the series. I found it somewhat scattered and wasn't sure I understood the ending. Some things made no sense at the end. And the romance, on and off, is getting tiresome. ( )

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. The Bounty by Janet Evanovich and Steve Hamilton is the seventh book in their fast paced Fox and O’Hare series. You could read it as a stand-alone. Kate O’Hare and Nick Fox are on the run searching for Nazi Gold in order to save the world from The Brotherhood a white supremacist group planning on taking over where the Nazi’s left off. Joining forces with both Kate and Nick’s fathers this is an edge of your seat race to find the maps and solve the puzzle before the bad guys catch up with them. With the sparkling banter and physical comedy that Janet Evanovich is known for this is a nice little escape read that will keep you reading long past your bedtime.

FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare finds herself once again paired with Nick Fox, con man extraordinaire, in a compulsive race to find a hidden cache of Nazi gold. Dogged by members of the Brotherhood [also in search of the gold], their hunt takes them from the Vatican to the Eiffel Tower to the Swiss Alps to the Western Sahara to the Eastern European Mountains as they collect pieces of a map rumored to reveal the hiding place of the gold, supposedly worth some thirty billion dollars.

Relentlessly pursued as they seek to retrieve the long-hidden pieces of the map that will lead them to the gold, will Kate and Nick find a way to emerge triumphant?

This outing, the seventh for Fox and O’Hare, brings their fathers [Quentin Fox and Jake O’Hare] along for the fun. There’s enough backstory for readers new to the series; perhaps if fans of the series considered “The Bounty” a stand-alone rather than the latest installment in the Kate and Nick series, they wouldn’t feel quite so disappointed.

The central characters remain much the same as in the earlier “The big Kahuna;” the charm, the witty banter, the cocky attitudes [from the earlier books in the series] all continue to be no-shows. The complex con is missing here, as is the delightful interplay between Kate and Nick. These elements made the series something special; sad to say, none of them play a part in the telling of this tale.

There’s plenty of action as the unfolding story repeatedly throws our intrepid heroes into ever-more-perilous situations. Occasional humor mixes in with all the over-the-top Indiana Jones-sort of antics; there’s a hint of romance [but none of the earlier silliness]. “The Bounty” is, undeniably, a wholly plot-driven adventure tale that repeats in place after place. It’s a quick, fun read, but fans looking for the captivating con and/or the Kate and Nick of the early stories will be disappointed.

Recommended for adventure fans, particularly those intrigued by Indiana Jones and National Treasure. ( )

With fond memories of a very early Stephanie Plum novel I read back in the 90s, I jumped at the chance to reconnect with the publishing juggernaut Janet Evanovich has since become. In March 2020 it was reported that Evanovich had sold world rights to her next four titles (which included this novel The Bounty) for a substantial 8-figure sum.

So, I was diving into this Fox and O’Hare Series at Book #7 with no background or pre-conceived ideas apart from the attention-grabbing synopsis above. That said, it is not unusual for me to join a series partway through; it rarely phases me. And, I have been known to enjoy some wildly escapist action-adventure fiction in my time, e.g. Matthew Reilly’s back catalogue.

The Bounty ticks off all the ingredients in the action-adventure thriller recipe book. Evanovich & Hamilton’s narrative pacing is fast, unrelentingly so. The bad guys are caricature evil… you know the type, maniacally rotten to the core. Conveniently, money is no object for the good-guys (courtesy of sins committed prior to seeing the light) and ‘I-saved-their-life-once’ debts can be called upon in almost any location (courtesy of O’Hare and Fox’s fathers’ military and art-dealer careers). And luckily so, because a cornucopia of exotic locales are featured. Continue reading >> https://www.bookloverbookreviews.com/2021/03/the-bounty-by-janet-evanovich-steve... ( )

I was drawn to this book by the cover. I became award of this book because I work at a library and see many people checking out this authors books. They have told me her stories are funny and is action packed adventures. After reading this newest installment (of the Fox and O’Hare series) The team includes a FBI agent Kate O’Hare and charming criminal Nick Fox (their chemistry reminded me of the cop and author show on TV called Castle) This novel remined me a little of the movies Indiana Jones and National Treasure as Kate and Nick chase down pieces of a historical map in order to locate a pot of gold.

The two lead characters have been together chasing down criminals (this is the seventh book in the series) this one is personal for both Kate and Nick. I did not get lost in this fast-paced action back story, but I will be checking out book one in this series to find out the back story between these two.

I loved that the author takes readers to several historical landmarks like inside the Neuschwansten Castle in Germany. It was beautiful. it was fun to learn that the name translated means New Swan Stone Castle (the book refers this and the fact that Disney might have used this castle for Cinderella’s castle in his kingdoms) It’s the first book I’ve read by this author it won’t be the last.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I have received a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher through NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
