Another Day Another Dali, a Serena Jones Mystery by Sandra Orchard


"And men wish women came with a manual." (18)


Title:  Another Day Another Dali
Series: Serena Jones Mystery, Book 2
Author:  Sandra Orchard
Publisher:  Revell
Release Date:  October 18, 2016
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Fiction / Mystery



When FBI Special Agent Serena Jones takes on the case of a forged Dali painting as a favor to her grandmother, she assumes it will be a typical investigation. Hopefully collaring the thief will also mean finally measuring up in her grandmother's eyes. But the deeper she delves into the forgery and the suspects surrounding it, the less typical it becomes.

The Dali isn't the only painting that's fallen prey to the forgery-replacing thief, raising the possibility of a sophisticated theft ring--one with links to dirty cops, an aspiring young artist, and the unsolved murder of Serena's grandfather. To make matters worse, someone connected to the forgeries seems to be determined to stop Serena's investigation--no matter the cost.

Another Day, Another Dali gives the plucky Serena Jones--and readers--a new high-stakes case to crack. You won't want to miss a single brushstroke!


Serena Jones is back at it again! OK. not back at it.. more like just back? It's not like she attracts crazy drama.. o...wait. Yes, she does. She is an FBI agent, no? We can blame it on the author, Sarah Orchard for another FUNNY adventure for Serena in Another Day Another Dali. I had another blast with this one. That was almost a spoiler for the opening, or was it? Don't mind me, I'm in one of those moods after reading this book. I feel quirky and want to do something silly. Why? I really don't know. Maybe it's Aunt Martha or Serena herself. They may be rubbing off on me.

Seriously, if you need a light read that is filled with drama (lightheartedly) and a little mystery, as well as some hard to define characters, Another Day Another Dali is one to read. If you like crime mysteries filled with federal agents, yes, this is it. If you like art, even better, since they are in the department that deals with art theft. If you like a little romance in your reads, there are two very hunky guys, both great characters for you, and ultimately Serena to choose from.  Trust me. It's hard. At times, I'm like team Tanner, then it jumps to team Nate. It wasn't that difficult in the first book, A Fool and His Monet, but in this second installment, it is not an easy feat. Speaking of books in the series so far, Another Day Another Dali can be read as a standalone, since it does provide a little background. But in honesty, I think it flows and works better in your mind when you read it sequentially.

The mystery of the day seems interestingly enough, especially with the start we had.  That case closes within the parameters of this book. However, our background case with Serena's grandfather's unsolved murder, that is yet to be closed. Then the romance part, you won't find a conclusion to that yet.  I normally do not like it if I don't have all the closure one gets, especially with the romance part, but I think it works here.  Plus, the rest of the book with its great characters and case of the book satisfying enough that I also look forward to the next one in the series. I just hope it won't be another year before I read it. (Most likely not.)
