What is this book about?
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.
This was an enjoyable mystery. I found it fascinating to read about a white collar branch of law enforcement. There were a few suspects and I did have to put on my thinking cap to work out who the thief was.
Serena was a nice character to get to know. I found her naivetés regarding men’s attention to her a little amusing. Of course that showed that she wasn’t full of herself. Her penchant for assigning famous actors looks to the men was a fun way to describe them.
I thought the mystery pacing and suspect list was well done and I enjoyed the characters in Serena’s world. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
Serena’s down to earth nature and seeing the mystery solved through her thought process.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. It is a fun and quick mystery. The characters were quirky and yet believable. The storyline and suspects were well done. This is the first book in the series and I’m looking forward to read the next one.
