It all depends on the new publisher like the previous poster mentioned. I had originally asked about Lizzy and Diesel and the Knight and Moon books because I like those too! But there's no word on those yet. (less)

All I can say is I think the lot of us would be happy if Lee took back control of these characters. I think it's fairly clear from the last book and the blurb for this one, Evanovich doesn't know how to capture the essence of Nick et al. ...more

A previous reviewer has said this book has been cancelled by the publisher and all I can say "Damn, that was a close one!"

As soon as I read the description I was horrified. Seriously? Nazi gold? Seriously?! And Nick's dad, who apparently taught him everything, which has never been mentioned before?

The real kicker though was "Jake is her gruff straight laced dad and they don't ever get along". Since when? He helped her parachute into a secluded monastery illegally in the first damn book. They are

After the mess that was The Big Kahuna, the expectations for this book were super low, but surprise surprise, it still failed to compare to Lee Goldberg’s previous books....shocking, right?
I mean, when you have one liners like this one: “I’m saying, if you’re thinking like a thief, you take the easy score that’s right in front of you. This guy didn’t do that.”, you know what kind of rollercoaster into hell you’re about to ride.

I don't understand why they are doing this, why they are trying to forcefully resurrect this series, which clearly ended with Goldberg's departure after the fifth book. I mean, I know why they do it, for the money. But after the failure of the sixth book, they should mercifully end the suffering of this series and stop publishing any more books against better judgement.

This is not a bad book. Steve Hamilton did what he could, as it is obvious that he is the author of this story. It is also incre
Update: The Publisher said that Kate and Jake don't get along, how is that possible? He's helped her every step of the way!
Did the Editors or the writers read the first books? Why are they changing the relationship now?
Are we reading the same series? Did Lee Goldberg took all good characters and plot lines?

I am frustrated, because I love this series so much! I thought book five was a great way to end it, they read like a movie.
The Big Kahuna was disappointing, I miss the old gang!

I have read a few of the books in this series and enjoyed them. I could hear Ms. Evanovichs' 'voice' with no problems. With this book, I lost her 'voice' completely and didn't enjoy it as much as I had the past ones.

This is a fast read, and if this is the first book you've picked up in this series, you will have no problems because the authors do put in enough back-story so that you can keep up. We also get to meet Nicholas's father. And Kate's father is along for the whole ride again!

The earlier partnership with Lee Goldberg was a dream. Despite those dopey-looking covers, I was hooked! The charm of Remington Steele, the loved up twist of any good '80s love-hate turned dreamy relationship (David Addison & Maddie Hayes, Sam & Dianne, etc.), the Mission Impossible + A-Team adventure -- but waaay funnier is how I would describe the early Fox and O'Hare... then the magic was gone without Goldberg.

Anyone who thinks writing great chemistry is a piece of cake is completely wrong.

From the first page to the last, I kept thinking that this would make a terrific action-packed motion picture. As for the book? Well, it would make a terrific action-packed movie.

Mind you, I haven't read any of the six preceding books in this series that feature FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare and professional con man Nick Fox. But I'm intimately acquainted with virtually all of author Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books and am a big fan of author Lee Goldberg, who co-wrote the first five in th

FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is paired with consultant Nick Fox, a repurposed con man and thief to thwart a theft at the Vatican, when the culprit steals a partial map, instead of the jewels they were expecting. The thief is none other than Nick's father gone bad, which Nick refuses to accept. Ignoring a direct order, Kate joins Nick in a compulsive race to find a hidden cache of Nazi gold, worth $30 billion, fighting true believers seeking the Fourth Reich, known as the Brotherhood.

This is book 7 in the Fox and O'Hare series. The first five books in this series with co-author Lee Goldberg were fun and enjoyable. Then #6 was a train wreck because instead of Lee Goldberg as co-author, we got Janet Evanovich's son. Now with #7 we get Steve Hamilton.

This was a slight step up from #6, but the story here was all over the place. I liked the idea of the treasure hunt, but this one wobbled a lot as far as plot and character development went. I guess it was more of a disappointment

Kate O'Hare and Nickolas Fox were driven with their fathers and others to find Nazi gold that had been hidden for over 75 years. This was done after a time trying to find missing pieces of maps to locate the treasure. You'll have fun reading each of the attempts because they are way above what an ordinary person can accomplish. You also be amazed at how the criminals keep coming after them on their quest. It gets more interesting as the story goes on. It's a book which is fun to read. ...more

I want to thank the publishers and Netgallery for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of The Bounty.
This was the first time I had read either of the authors so I was not sure what to expect. After reading the description, I thought it had promise and I was looking forward to delving into it. To be quite honest, it was a difficult book to get through. It was not a book a couldn't put down but in the end I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure how to explain it. The Bounty reminded me of the Nation
Review to come.

Quick thoughts:

After reading that abomination known as The Big Kahuna- it occurred to me that 2 Evanovich people on the same book was 2 too many. IT was like they went through the entire Plum backlist, selected the MOST annoying tidbits of characters from Plum history and then tried to shine them up. But failed.
And then recycled the same old gags again and again and AGAIN.
Plus the word belfie? Just no. Honestly about the only saving grace in that book was an A-Team reference.

FBI Agent Kate O’Hare and con man Nick Fox are joined by their fathers in this madcap hunt for a World War II treasure. Add also an Oxford University professor of Germanic literature who travels with the gang through Italy, France, England, Austria and more to interpret pieces of old maps as they are discovered. And a retired SAS captain who comes to the rescue adds spice. All are pursued by a new Brotherhood assisted by Red Star Corps terrorists and a giant of a man. The action is nonstop and i ...more

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC. I read a number of other books by Janet Evanovich over years in her Stephanie Plumb series which were easy fun reads that were quick to get through.

I expected this would be similar but I was actually surprised this was more suspenseful and thrilling. It had a bit less humour with some interesting travel locations. Since we are in lockdown is nice to read about different places.

I enjoyed this book and it exceeded my expectations.
2.5 ⭐
An improvement from disaster book #6 by Peter Evanovich. Without Lee Goldberg, I guess it'll never be the same. This one with international treasure hunt plot, Nazi's lost gold. Not a bad thriller, but not the reason I read Evanovich books. What make this series stand out are the characters, Fox and O'Hare. Conman and FBI agent. Their chemistry was gold. Now? Lacking... 😥
3.5 stars

I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan and have loved this series since it came out except for the disaster that was The Big Kahuna, but we won't talk about that. When I saw that Steve Hamilton was on board to co-write book 7, I thought I'd give it a shot since Kate and Nick are such fantastic characters, and I'm glad that I did. While they don't have the same Kate/Nick dynamic that they had in books 1-5, it's almost there, and that made me very, very happy! I also loved being introduced to Nic

Janet & Steve pull you down in a hard run with Kate and Nick from the beginning without catching your breath. BULLSHIT if I don’t get the novel and continue running with them. Till March 23 I’ll workout to be fit.

Seventh in the Fox and O'Hare romantic suspense series and revolving around an international thief and his FBI handler, tasked with conning the criminals.

My Take
I was disappointed with The Bounty. I don't know if Evanovich is getting bored with it or if it's the change in co-author, but it wasn't as funny as previous stories and felt ho-hum. A real bummer, as I'd been looking forward to a humorous adventure.

Sure, there's plenty of action and derring-do. And I do adore Kate's dad. Even if he is f

This is a tough review for me to write as I see the book from two different perspectives – as a standalone novel and as part of the series. Since the series has changed the co-author from, originally Lee Goldberg to now, Steve Hamilton, I will review it by talking about each perspective separately.

As a Standalone Novel

The Bounty is a fun and action-packed treasure hunt mystery that appeals to the puzzle lover in me. I was glued to this fast-paced story as Kate and Nick worked with their fathers

This is an exciting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat, thrilling, can’t-put-it-down read. It was so engrossing I read it through in one sitting – boy did I pay for that the next day – but it was worth it!

This book is the seventh in the Fox and O’Hare series. Our protagonists are Kate O’Hare, who is an FBI agent, and Nick Fox, a conman. My thanks go to Atria Books and Net Galley for the invitation to read and review. While this book isn’t my cuppa, there will be readers that enjoy it. One way or the other, it goes up for sale on Tuesday, March 23.

The first six books of this series were cowritten by Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. There’s no explanation for why Goldberg is out and Hamilton is in, but

Those who have read a Janet Evanovich book knows how much effort she puts into every book, to make it as entertaining as possible. This is what we have found in all her classic Stephanie Plum books.
When she launched the Fox and O’Hare series, it was just as memorable a series of books. The first five books were written with Lee Goldberg, the sixth with her son Peter Evanovich. Now with book series she works with best selling author Steve Hamilton to bring another dimension to the series.

Janet Evanovich’s Fox and O’Hare series about unwilling cooperation between FBI agent Kate O’Hare and international thief Nick Fox has advanced to a seventh book, The Bounty. There’s a new co-author, Steve Hamilton, after a short-lived collaboration with Evanovich’s son Peter. The change is for the better.

This is perhaps the most coherent and exciting book in the series so far. The plot is intriguing. Nick’s estranged father is after a treasure map that should lead to a hidden hoard of Nazi gold
