This blog follows my adventures in BookCrossing--the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise. It is a fascinating exercise in fate, karma, or whatever you want to call the chain of events that can occur between two or more lives and one piece of literature.

Chasing Mona Lisa, by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey
I really liked the action-adventure-spy-mystery parts of this book that takes place in the days just before and after the liberation of Paris in August 1944, but I could have done without the cliché love stories. It was like the authors took a few pages from a Ken Follett book, then a few pages from a Harlequin romance, back to the action, time for some gooey stuff, back and forth, and so on. I did enjoy it, but I would have liked to like it all.
