AUTHOR: Sandra Orchard
When a valuable Salvador Dali painting belonging to her grandmother's friend is mysteriously replaced by a forgery, FBI Special Agent Serena Jones is called in to investigate. Serena hopes finding the thief will also mean finally measuring up to Nana's expectations. But when the evidence points to members of the owner's own household, it becomes increasingly clear that Serena won't be winning any popularity contests.
The Dali isn't the only painting that's fallen prey to the forgery-replacing thief, raising the specter 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.
Having read and enjoyed Sandra Orchard’s A Fool and His Monet, I was eager to read this second book of the Serena Jones mystery series. Although an astute detective in her field of fine art, Serena seems blissfully unaware of the turmoil she brings to the two men in her life, Tanner and Nate. When her current investigation takes a dangerous turn, both men strive to protect her, and that creates both added tension and some delightful humor.
One thing I missed in Another Day Another Dali was any kind of faith message. For that reason, I struggle with describing the book as a Christian novel, but it is a fun, clean romp of a mystery, suitable for teens and up.
This book is obviously not the final of the series, as some questions were left unanswered. But more than one mystery was revealed, granting satisfaction to this reader. I look forward to the next Serena Jones Mystery, as this one earns a solid four stars. Recommended.
