Book Review - A Fool and His Monet by Sandra Orchard

Serena Jones works for the FBI Art Crimes Team which recovers lost and stolen pieces of art work. She loves her job but one of the main reason for her interest in art is to uncover the truth behind the murder of her grandfather. She believes that with each one of her cases might someday lead to her killer. Unfortunately, as much as Serena loves her job, her mother doesn't want her daughter to risk her life everyday and continues to pester Serena to settle down and marry.

Serena's good friend works at a local museum and notices one of the priceless Monet art pieces is missing. Each clue Serena collects leads her down a different path. Will Serena be able to sort out the tangled web of lies? Will she be able to find her grandfather's killer?

The story was a fun read and was my first story from this author. However, I was quite annoyed how every single male character was practically in love with Serena and throwing themselves at her. Yet, somehow she doesn't see it and wonders about her dating life. There is also the much used and rather annoying love triangle. I wish the story was less focused on Serena's love life and more focused on the crime solving aspect of the story. While, it was a interesting story, I don't I will read the next book in the series.
