A Fool and His Monet

Sketchy politics and a palette of lies can't stop Serena Jones from exposing the mastermind behind the daring theft of a priceless work of art

Serena Jones has a passion for recovering lost and stolen art--one that's surpassed only by her zeal to uncover the truth about 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 determined to catch thieves and black market traders.

When a local museum discovers an irreplaceable Monet missing, Serena leaps into action--and a whole heap of trouble.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  The book starts with Serena in a sting operation to trap some art thieves.  At first I thought she might be an inept FBI agent.  But as the book progressed I realized she was not.  The dialogue she has with herself is entertaining as it is funny and sometimes it lets you see her true feelings and not what she portrays to those around her.  There are several men introduced into her life during the course of the book.  The two that stick in my mind are Tanner her FBI trainer and Nick the superintendent of her apartment building.  Her mother doesn’t really care which one she picks.  Just so she gets married and has babies.  Preferably with a much safer job.  As I said, this was a fun book to read.  I am looking forward to the continuation of Serena’s story.  Serena did solve the mystery of how and who stole the paintings from the museum.  So there was an ending.  But her story will continue in book two.  The underlying story is who stole a painting from her grandfather and killed him. 

I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review.   I was not compensated in anyway.
