It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci's masterpiece before it falls into German hands?
With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers' adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on--and the runners are playing for keeps.
My Thoughts: I was drawn into this book from page one. It was a travel back in time, and a vacation of sorts through France. This book takes place when France is being liberated from Germany. The very valuable picture The Mona Lisa has gone missing and it is a race against time to get her back.
Tricia writes so vividly you feel as if you are right there experiencing everything the characters are. I highly recommend this one!
