    In their sequel to "The Swiss Courier," Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey send Swiss agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler on a mission to Paris and back again, aiding the French Resistance in chasing out the Nazis. Things seem to be going well for the French, but discord between the Gaullists and the communists is mounting, and another threat is on the horizon: knowing that the Nazis are losing the war, Hermann Goering, famous for his collection of plundered art, decides to snatch the priceless painting Mona Lisa, or as the French call it, La Joconde, as a final blow to the French and potential bargaining chip. With a Louvre curator pinned under his aide's thumb by blackmail and some unscrupulous Nazi agents to do his dirty work, it should be an easy enough job, but thankfully the American OSS (pre-CIA) in Switzerland is onto the plot. Thus Gabi and Eric, with the help of the French, take off after the painting, creating a thrilling race to reach her first.

    What I noticed in "The Swiss Courier" is that Goyer and Yorkey seem to write everything in such a straightforward manner that one is completely blindsided when an unexpected twist appears. Since the surprises were "oh duh, I probably should've seen that coming" moments for me, I figured I just wasn't paying enough attention, so I decided I'd be prepared for "Chasing Mona Lisa."

    Blindsided again.

    It makes sense; it's a supremely intelligent move on their part; I just never saw it coming. Fool me once, it could well be a fluke; fool me twice, that's good writing. Congratulations, authors!

    One character in particular disappointed me; not in how they were fleshed out, but in choices they make. Extremism rarely turns out well, and it's hard to watch someone so consumed by a cause that relationships become second-place - there are consequences to shoving away those who love you. Ending the book the way the authors did was a touch dissatisfying to my happily-ever-after expectations, being a little more bittersweet than I expected. Suffice to say, I was surprised in more ways than one. It was a good ending, a realistic ending, and a very fitting ending - but it was no perfect fairy tale ending either.

    I liked the novel a lot; the main strike against it is that like the previous novel, there is not much for a major Christian message - just characters who seem to respect God. The history is fascinating and plot exciting, and it can stand alone without the first book.

    The pace of the book kept my interest. The author makes the reader feel they are silently standing next to the characters in the story.

    Chasing Mona Lisa was a wonderful journey that took place in Paris durig the Nazis occupation. Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey managed to creatively intertwine Historical facts into this fictional novel. It is not an easy task , but they managed to achieve it.

    I love history, mystery and art and I was able to have all three loves written in one book. The list of characters are Gabi and Eric OSS Agents, Collete Perriard the currator who was in charge of the master pieces of France. As the book begins with the Nazis occupation of France and the revelation of all the art they had taken for themselves. Except for some Master Pieces that the museum was able to save before the occupation. The heroin's in the book arrive in time to witness the liberation of Paris, and enjoy the festivities and celebration of Paris, but not for long The Nazis are plotting behind the scenes. They plot to steal one of Paris's prize possetions the Mona Lisa. You the reader will have to see what happens next. I do not want to spoil the book.

    Great book I recommend that you read Chasing Mona Lisa. It is filled with mystery, adventure and romance. What else could one want from a book.

    I received this book for free from ChristianBooks.com I was not under any obligation to write a positive or negative review.

    This historical fiction book is full of suspense, intrigue, non stop action with the back drop being the end of World War II in Paris. The description of the war-ravaged city is vivid, bringing clear images into this readers mind. It gave me an opportunity to sit and think about what it must have been like to live in occupied Paris, with food rationings, fear of the Third Reich, and the people of Paris having their identity stripped away with such brutality.

    Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler are Swiss agents sent to protect the Mona Lisa from high ranking Third Reich officers who want the irreplaceable French painting for themselves, all for greed and profit. Gabi and Eric are in love, treat each other with respect and look out for each other. They carry out their duty with integrity.

    What I found confusing is the numerous characters in this novel. Some are fictional. Some, like Charles de Gaulle were real people who were involved one way or another with the war. It was difficult to keep track of everyone, who they were, what their involvement was etc. Character development was not as strong as I would have liked.

    Overall I enjoyed this book. The history and the main characters of Gabi and Eric make this a good read.
