Book Review: Another Day, Another Dali

25 Nov

unknownA Fast-Paced, Keep-You-Guessing Whodunit with a Dash of Romance

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.

With plenty of edge-of-your-seat moments, Another Day, Another Dali gives the plucky Serena Jones–and readers–a new high-stakes case to crack.

My Impressions:

Another Day, Another Dali is the second installment in the Serena Jones Mystery series by Sandra Orchard. Orchard’s intrepid sleuth gives a first person account of her adventures discovering stolen and counterfeit art and the bad guys responsible. Serena stumbles into trouble along the way, as well as a little romance from two handsome men. With family complications and clueless suspects a bit of humor lightens up the suspense. I enjoyed Another Day, Another Dali and give it a recommended rating.

Another Day, Another Dali starts out with a bang (or a close call) and the action continues with ambushes, murders, and other dangerous situations. But through it all main character Serena keeps her head as she attempts to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. I love Serena’s character. She is a trained FBI agent, yet she still has her share of doubts and fears. She puts up a good front of courage, but she shakes a bit in her shoes. Her two love interests, Nate and Tanner, are charming and sweet, and I went back and forth on which one she should pick. Other minor characters from the first book are interwoven through the novel, but this one can easily be read as a standalone. The mystery begins and ends within the book. There are a number of loose ends, however, which promise to be tied up in the future. I’m hoping Serena’s exploits continue for some time to come.

For fans of light mysteries, Another Day, Another Dali is a good choice. A quick read, this book is perfect to curling up with during the long winter nights.

Recommended.
