Gabriela Rose, Book 1
Synopsis: Lost something? Gabriela Rose knows how to get it back. As a recovery agent, she’s hired by individuals and companies seeking lost treasures, stolen heirlooms, or missing assets of any kind. She’s reliable, cool under pressure, and well trained in weapons of all types. But Gabriela’s latest job isn’t for some bamboozled billionaire, it’s for her own family, whose home is going to be wiped off the map if they can’t come up with a lot of money fast.
Inspired by an old family legend, Gabriela sets off for the jungles of Peru in pursuit of the Ring of Solomon and the lost treasure of Cortez. But this particular job comes with a huge problem attached to it—Gabriela’s ex-husband, Rafer. It’s Rafer who has the map that possibly points the way to the treasure, and he’s not about to let Gabriela find it without him.
Rafer is as relaxed as Gabriela is driven, and he has a lifetime’s experience getting under his ex-wife’s skin. But when they aren’t bickering about old times the two make a formidable team, and it’s going to take a team to defeat the vicious drug lord who has also been searching for the fabled ring. A drug lord who doesn’t mind leaving a large body count behind him to get it.
The Recovery Agent marks the start of an irresistible new series that will have you clamoring for more and cheering for the unstoppable Gabriela Rose on every page.
Review: I love Janet Evanovich’s novels and when I saw that she was releasing a new series, I didn’t wait long to pick it up. And how could I resist a novel that mixes Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones, all with great humor?
Gabriela Rose has an extraordinary job: she recovers the objects that her clients want and for that she can travel the world and find herself in extraordinary adventures! But the latest one is a little different: her family is about to lose their house. Luckily, her aunt’s ghost has given them a solution: find a lost treasure that could save them all! However, her ex-husband has the notebook that could lead them to the treasure, an ex-husband who is as sexy as he is insufferable. Forced to join forces with him, they will travel the world to try to find the treasure. Problem: they are not the only ones and this group is very dangerous!
This was a very cool novel and I had a great time with the story and the characters. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Rafer and Gabriela are great and I was looking forward to seeing them together.
I recommend it and can’t wait for volume 2!
