Serena Jones has a passion for recovering lost and stolen art--one that's surpassed only by her zeal to uncover the truth about the art thief who murdered her grandfather. She's joined the FBI Art Crime Team with the secret hope that one of her cases will lead to his killer. Now, despite her mother's pleas to do something safer--like get married--Serena's learning how to go undercover to catch thieves and black market traders.
When a local museum discovers an irreplaceable Monet missing, Jones leaps into action. The clues point in different directions, and her boss orders her to cease investigating her most promising suspect. But determined to solve the case and perhaps discover another clue in her grandfather's murder, she pushes ahead, regardless of the danger.
With spunk, humor, and plenty of heart-stopping moments, Sandra Orchard gives readers an exciting string of cases to crack and a character they'll love to watch solve them.
I'd seen this author's books around and heard good things from blogging friends so when I saw that she was starting a new series I decided to dive in.
What I found was an entertaining story that had a mix of humor and mystery with a dash of romance thrown in. Serena was a great heroine feisty and able to take care of herself while also kind and attentive to those around her! I liked both of her potential love interests, Tanner the fellow agent, and Nate her apartment building's supervisor. Both were fun and seem to really care about Serena, it'll be interesting to see who she ends up with! Serena's family were amusing, especially her aunt.
The mystery kept taking new turns every time I thought I had it figured out and kept me guessing until the end.
In short this was a very enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to getting more of Serena's story in book two!
