A Fool & His Monet - A Serena Jones Mystery 1 - by Sandra Orchard

Cover Art

About the book:

Sketchy politics and a palette of lies can't stop Serena Jones from exposing the mastermind behind the daring theft of a priceless work of art
Serena Jones has a passion for recovering lost and stolen art--one that's surpassed only by her zeal to uncover the truth about who murdered her grandfather. She's joined the FBI Art Crime Team with the secret hope that one of her cases will lead to his killer. Now, despite her mother's pleas to do something safer--like get married--Serena's determined to catch thieves and black market traders.

When a local museum discovers an irreplaceable Monet missing, Serena leaps into action--and a whole heap of trouble.

My review:

I absolutely loved this book!  This was a cozy mystery with wonderful characters!  It was incredibly amusing, especially with her crazy aunt wanting to be a detective and trying to insert herself into Serena's investigation.  There were some laugh-out-loud moments.  The case was interesting and tough to figure out.  Gotta love a twist!  There's kind of a love triangle as it seems like a co-worker and her landlord might be interested in her, though she's focused on her career right now, so there were a few cute moments.  She has over-protective parents who want her to quit her job, get married and give them grandkids and a cat too lazy to catch mice.    I loved the movie references and how she compared people to actors they looked like.  I loved the focus on art and the quotes that were thrown in.  This was a well-written story you won't want to miss!  I can't wait for the next one!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
