Another Day, Another Dali - A Serena Jones Mystery 2 - by Sandra Orchard

Cover Art

About the book:

The world of art theft can be a deadly game--one that Serena Jones understands all too well.
When FBI Special Agent Serena Jones takes on the case of a forged Dali painting as a favor to her grandmother, she assumes it will be a typical investigation. Hopefully collaring the thief will also mean finally measuring up in her grandmother's eyes. But the deeper she delves into the forgery and the suspects surrounding it, the less typical it becomes.

The Dali isn't the only painting that's fallen prey to the forgery-replacing thief, raising the possibility of a sophisticated theft ring--one with links to dirty cops, an aspiring young artist, and the unsolved murder of Serena's grandfather. To make matters worse, someone connected to the forgeries seems to be determined to stop Serena's investigation--no matter the cost.

Another Day, Another Dali gives the plucky Serena Jones--and readers--a new high-stakes case to crack. You won't want to miss a single brushstroke!

My review:

This was such a fun and amusing mystery I didn't want to put down!  Serena never has a dull moment;  if it's not chasing bad guys, it's trying to keep her zany great-aunt from interfering in her investigations or trying to stop her family from turning her friendships with her handsome landlord or colleague into a walk down the aisle.  The investigations were fascinating as Serena tries to figure out who's painting forgeries, who stole her grandmother's friend's painting and who murdered her grandfather two decades ago and could they all possibly be related?  There's humor, a little bit of romance as it seems like both guys in her life might like her as more than a friend and she might like them back and some action.  There's a little bit about faith and I really liked her insight into her choice to make Sunday a day of rest and how she felt like she was rewarded for that by things falling into place at work on Monday.  I like the focus on art in this series and while the mystery is wrapped up in this book, the relationships carry over from book one so I would suggest reading that first for a little more insight and because it's also a wonderful story!  I highly recommend this book!

I received this book free from Revell.
