Orchard, Sandra. A Fool & His Monet: A Serena Jones Mystery. Grand Rapids, MI: Revell Publishing. 2016.
As a member of the FBI Art Crime Team, Agent Serena Jones has a personal interest in this particular crime- who exactly stole the Monet from the local museum? Hoping that identifying the art thief may lead to clues of her grandfather’s death, Serena Jones is unable to work alone on the case. Stuck in a bit of a romantic mess of her own, Serena must decide where her heart leads, how to placate her mom’s ideas of a wedding and grandchildren, and what to do about her well-meaning but screw-loose Aunt. With humor, coziness and fun, author Sandra Orchard begins her newest series…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
With her usual sense of suspense, author Sandra Orchard shares a witty story in her new Serena Jones Mystery series. Though a bit quirky and perhaps unrealistic at times, overall it was a good read. With strong characters and endless possibilities to continue, A Fool & His Monet kept my interest as I quickly finished it. Though maybe a bit confusing due to the many characters involved, the mystery was entertaining, lively and amusing. Especially liking some of the play on words, the title and cover were perfect!
