The Recovery Agent: A Novel (1) (A Gabriela Rose Novel)
Gabriela Rose is in the jungles of Ecuador trying to recover an antique amulet, but things don’t go well. When she returns to New York, she finds out her family in South Carolina has been hit by a hurricane, and the entire town is in trouble. Her grandmother tells her that the ghost of Gabriela’s great-grandmother, Annie, says there is information to find a treasure in a hidden room of Gabriela’s old house, which is now owned by her ex-husband, Rafer. He lets her find what she needs but insists on going with her on the treasure hunt. There is still chemistry between these two. They head to the jungles of Peru, hire some guides, and find themselves up against an absolute madman who wants to use Gabriela as a sacrifice to his lord and master.
Janet Evanovich has a great new franchise with the books featuring Gabriela Rose. The characters are larger than life, funny, smart, and sexy. The dialogue is snappy, and the story is very, very compelling. Evanovich builds tension on every page and somehow creates a cast of characters that are both believable and fantastic at the same time. One can only hope this series lasts for a long, long time.
