Summary on back cover:


When FBI Special Agent Serena Jones takes on a 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 possibly 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!

 

Review


Serena Jones is at it again, solving crime, finding art and keeping her aunt Martha out of trouble.  This book is exactly like the cover, it’s quirky, it’s fun and has a clever plot. On top of that it has a boatload of funny adventure. If you haven’t already guessed it, it isn’t the most realistic. Most of the things she does has you scratching your head and thinking “an FBI agent would never do that”. I would not label this book as suspense, rather mystery; which is fine with me, there are plenty of suspense books out there to choose from. The quirky characters really make this book complete. Yet, at some times, it is a bit difficult to follow. I’ve never been a fan of love triangles, so when it comes to Nate and Tanner I wish Serena would just make up her mind. The problem I have with this book is the lack of detail. Sometimes I got really lost. For instance, I got through half a chapter before I realized that she is actually driving her car and Aunt Martha is with her. Of course, that is probably my fault but still, it isn’t very clear.

 

I really enjoyed reading it and would recommend it. This book is very similar to the first one, A Fool and His Monet. If you liked that one, then you will enjoy reading Another Day Another Dali.
