This was a fun book and I loved every minute of reading it! It was a great mystery as well as having a lot of really good humor throughout.
Serena is an FBI agent whose specialty is stolen artwork. When we first meet her, she is undercover doing a sting operation and she has a feeling that things didn't go as they should have. She is worried, even further, when she finds out that they aren't in jail where she expected them to be. When things start happening and she feels like she's being watched, she is concerned that it's the two thugs.
When her friend, who is in charge of an Art Museum realizes that two paintings are missing from them, she contacts Serena, hoping that they can get the pieces back and figure out who stole them and how they got them out of the museum. Serena and her partner, Tanner, start investigating and it leads them to a rabbit trail of all kinds of conspiracy.
I just love Serena's family. Her aunt is just a hoot and really adds a lot of humor to the story. Not only that, she has a lot of good ideas that help Serena. I also love Nate, her landlord, who is always there for her and seems quite smitten with her.
The characters are very well developed and there are a lot of twists in this story that will keep you guessing! I just loved this book and am so excited to learn there is another one in the works! I highly recommend this book!
