Another Day, Another Dali by Sandra Orchard
The World of Art Theft can be a deadly game -
One that Serena Jones understands all too well.
I cannot believe that Thanksgiving was this past Thursday.
When I think about how much God has blessed me and those around me I cannot help but think that we have so much to be thankful for:
We live in an amazing country where we are free to speak and think,
We have homes, families and jobs.
We have been saved by Grace through the blood of Jesus
And, we have wonderful, fantastic christian books to read!
Books like my next "Must Read" by Sandra Orchard!
Another Day, Another Dali by Sandra Orchard is the story of FBI agent Serena Jones who is a magnet for trouble.
Serena's Grandmother ( Nana) approaches her one day after work with an "unofficial" case, Nana's best friend Gladys had a painting (a painting by Salvador Dali, worth more then a million dollars) that was stolen and replaced with a very good forgery. Gladys does not want anyone to know about her stolen painting which is why it has to be "unofficial". Serena decides to take the case hoping to get on her Nana's good side because she feels like Nana blames her for her Grandfather's murder. So Serena decides to look into Gladys adult children first because they all have motive, and the opportunity to commit the crime. But the deeper Serena gets into Gladys's case , the more confusing it gets, Everyone may have had the means or the opportunity to have commit the crime but their records are spotless and they all seem to have solid alibis. Serena still believes it had to be an inside job because there were no signs of forced entry or anything out of the ordinary.
Serena is determined to solve Gladys case but she also has to focus on her job, which has her working undercover trying to locate a stolen Renoir. They found a very nice forgery of the Renoir at a drug dealers house but now she has to locate the original . And as if those two cases were not enough, She was helping one of her best friends and co-workers, Tanner on a surveillance mission and is now being targeted by the Russian mob. They saw her with Tanner and now they believe that she is his girlfriend. They figure that if they threaten her, they can get to Tanner. Serena tries to juggle the two cases and watch her back but it seems like she is not getting anywhere on either case! She is starting to wonder if somehow, the two cases may be linked but she has no idea how.
Serena must rely on her skills and her friends to escape the danger that lurks within every shadow,
But will she be able to solve the case or will it be another masterpiece that is lost forever?
This is one epic showdown you do not want to miss!
What did I think about the book?
Another Day, Another Dali is the second book in the Serena Jones Mystery series. I have read the first book ( A Fool and his Monet) but this book could definitely be read as a standalone. I love the main character Serena. I love her knack for getting in trouble, her witty responses and her courage. I also love the relationships between Serena, Tanner and Nate. It is so funny to read about how both of the boys are in love with Serena and she is completely unaware. I also like Serena's cat, Harold.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a quirky, fun, humorous Mystery novel with a slight pinch of romance . Overall I rate the book 5 out of 5 stars! *****
