From the Back Cover
Sketchy politics and a palette of lies can't stop Serena Jones from exposing the mastermind behind the daring theft of a priceless work of art
Serena Jones has a passion for recovering lost and stolen art--one that's surpassed only by her zeal to uncover the truth about who murdered her grandfather. She's joined the FBI Art Crime Team with the secret hope that one of her cases will lead to his killer. Now, despite her mother's pleas to do something safer--like get married--Serena's determined to catch thieves and black market traders.
When a local museum discovers an irreplaceable Monet missing, Serena leaps into action--and a whole heap of trouble.

I would categorize this as a "clean" novel because Serena sometimes mentions praying and she goes to church but her faith is not an integral part to the story and there isn't an explicit gospel presentation. And that's not a complaint per se, just a description. It was a very fun story.
Serena Jones is a wet-behind-the-ears FBI agent. Her grandfather's murder propelled her into this field, but her love of art and justice,plus her zany aunt Martha keeps her going. Two paintings have disappeared from a friend's art museum. Mix together two hunky men who vie for Serena's attention, mobsters of the good and bad variety,plenty of suspense, laughter, and story line twists. The end result is a scrumptious cozy you will devour way too quickly, asking for seconds!! A new twist at the end I had personally never experienced before. Kudos, Sandra Orchard!!
Clean in language and behavior, yet not prudish or religious, the action and plot are believable and interesting, with enough facts about the FBI and the art world to flesh out the story. The characters don't make stupid mistakes just to keep the story going, there are no disconcerting lapses of information to discredit the story, and I could not find any distracting grammatical or spelling mistakes.
Light romantic tension just adds to the book instead of taking over and eclipsing the crime action.
A Fool and His Monet is a stand alone book with a satisfying conclusion. I will buy the next in the series because I enjoyed the book, not because I was tricked into reading an unfinished cliffhanger.
