Emerson Knight is introverted and eccentric and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he's also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he'd probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with megabank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.

Light hearted fare...quirky, yet entertaining. Nice mix of characters And of course the performance is the best. I found myself chuckling many times but the intrigue was still there.

What did you love best about Jack and Jill?

Attention to detail is always a good thing and the human interest helps bond to the character, but the many unexpected twists in the storyline keeps you going from daydreaming about the presented facts to intense listening for new clues. The ending is not what I expected which helps me rate this book higher than many.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

With many crime novels, the ending becomes clear but the problem of resolution is unclear. With this book, just when the ending seems clear, there is a major twist that disrupts all preconceived notions. This technique engages the listener more, to the point you hang on every word.

I read Da Vinci Code first, never knowing anything about the author. I loved it, and this story is just as compelling. I am not Catholic, but this book gave some amazing insight and challenged my own spirituality.
