Jane's professor asks her for an unusual favor - to drive his brand new Hummer from Oxford to Mallorca in Spain and to bring with her a box of pottery shards he's been collecting for the past 20 years. All of this would be fine except for two things: 1. Jane has never driven a car with the driver's side on the right, and 2. Someone wants the box she's supposed to deliver.
The story proceeds with Jane's biggest problem being missing turns because she's having to focus on driving on the left side of the road to running from whoever wants the box. She can't be sure who to trust and at times, her intuition betrays her. The story had it's hilarious moments as Jane watches the Hummer drive away and she and her newfound accomplice go on the chase, but it's also full of excitement as you wonder what's really in the box that everyone between London and Mallorca seems to want.
Bottom line - I couldn't put it down. Fun and well-written. Bravo, Mr. DiBenedetto!
Author J.J. Dibenedetto has created a novel with adventure, action, thieves and stolen antiquities. American, Jane Barnaby, is attending Oxford; her advisor, Professor Welldon, ask her to deliver his new car and a box of pottery shards to him in Mallorca, Spain where he is vacationing.
Through a series of mishaps and mistakes, Jane unintentionally retrieves a box of antiquities and the adventure of a life time begins. The box is stolen from Jane and she races across France along with 2 sidekicks to retrieve the box. Are these two friend or foe? Jane met Alex Coggins on the ferry as she travels from England to France and Tom Barker shows up in France stating he is an employee of the Bodleian Library from which the antiquities originated.
Come along for a map-cap adventure as Jane races across France to Spain and her vacationing advisor, Professor Welldon with two men that could her friend or they could be the enemy.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
This is an action filled novel with skillful character development and plotting. The plots just keep coming; Jane questions her opinion of her sidekicks, their intentions, and her attraction to Alex.
"Obviously this man wasn't just gorgeous, with a killer voice and charm to spare-he had real talent and serious brains going for him as well. He was too good to be true."
Ms. Dibenedetto kept the drama at high peak as her characters race to find the original box of antiquities, elude the thieves, solve the mystery, and retrieve Professor Welldon's box. Ms. Dibenedetto's talent in keeping the suspense at high pitch was clear. I thought several times I had the plot worked out, to find I was wrong.Read more ›
When it becomes apparent that there was a mix up with the boxes Jane, along with Tom Barker, must get the right box to Professor Welldon without losing the other box that they are carrying while trying to get away from people who want what she mistakenly has.
I enjoyed this book and I thought Jane was a great character and full of spunk. That being said I thought she was quite naive at the beginning of the book and had no idea why she trusted like she did. Through the book she began to become a stronger character but she still seemed to trust more than she should have when she could've just escaped earlier from the circus that she got herself into. I'm still not sure where Alex's alliances lay, even at the end of the book.
I would definitely give the author another read as I did enjoy Jane's driving!
