The world of art theft can be a deadly game--one that Serena Jones understands all too well.

A 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 thoughts:  ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER DALI is the second in Ms. Orchard's Serena Jones Mystery series. Fans will want to follow along with the romance between Nate and Serena and Tanner and Serena as they via against each other for her affections, but otherwise the mystery is stand-alone, other than the continuing mystery regarding who killed Serena's grandfather. 

I enjoyed reading ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER DALI as this one delved into the world of forgeries and how it related to art -- who is forging? Who stole an original from an older lady and replaced it with a fake?  And how does this tie into the (unrelated?) case that Tanner is investigating? The story does start slow, but it picks up about midway. 

I thought I had this one figured out, but there are many twists, turns and red herrings so I wasn't sure until the very end when it is revealed. I can't wait to read the third book in this series (out now and will be reviewed later this month. 

Don't miss ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER DALI. I got this book free. My opinion is my own.
