Another Day Another Dali
A Serena Jones Mystery #2
By Sandra Orchard
Serena Jones is back with another case and thanks to a favor to her grandmother she also has an "unofficial" case that she is working on. With both cases dealing with forgeries of well known pieces of art Serena has a forger to track down. The only question is did the forger switch out the missing original artwork or was someone else responsible for the theft?
When Serena helps out Tanner with a little after hours surveillance her life gets a whole lot more complicated. And unfortunately for her someone notices and assumes they are a couple. If only she can keep her cousin from talking and her mother from planning a wedding!
The deeper Serena gets into her investigation the more secrets she uncovers - and someone wants to keep their secrets private, even if it means stopping Serena's investigation forever.
Adding to the fun that Serena calls her life is Aunt Martha and her own investigative endeavors. And then there is Nate her building supervisor, who is still a little creepy though maybe a little less than in book 1 (A Fool and His Monet). There is something about Nate that I don't totally trust and the fact that Aunt Martha sees him as a Serena's only chance at a happily-ever-after makes me roll my eyes.
Another Day Another Dali is a fun read. Serena finds herself in some truly interesting situations that just have to bring a smile out. This is a book that is light reading and a pure enjoyment, perfect for getting away from the everyday. I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the Serena Jones Mystery series as much as the first book if not more. As a side note Serena should never be named Maid of Honor for any wedding.
I was provided a review copy of this book by the publisher Revell with no expectations of a positive review - all opinions expressed are my own.
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!
