A Fool and His Monet by Sandra Orchard | Review

Serena Jones is the newest member of the FBI’s Art Crime Squad. After completing her first undercover case, Jones is swept into solving an art theft case at the local museum. With the help of her mentor and the unwanted help of friends and family time is running out to find the thief and recover the stolen art.

I enjoyed this novel. This is a clean mystery, with very little violence. It focuses on the mystery and alludes to a love triangle, that I’m sure will surface in future novels. Although I found the pace a bit slow at times, there was a good mixture of mystery and humor to keep me interested.

This book has been classified as suspense, but I didn’t feel that the action ever got suspenseful. I was intrigued by the story and wanted to solve the crime myself, but didn’t think any plot developed into a high tension level.

I loved the characters Orchard created. Serena’s family was especially cute and it was nice to the dynamics of different personalities play out.

Overall, I thought the plot was good, the characters were entertaining, and the mystery had some twists. I look forward to reading more about Serena Jones.


I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
