The local police department hasn't been able to turn up the 6.1 carat... More > diamond engagement ring.< Less

It had all the things I like in a story. Great dialogue, a mystery that I couldn't figure out, and a great leading couple. I really liked how the author held the mystery a mystery until the end and then it's all laid out. I thoroughly enjoyed Denim and Sylvia. Orlando was a great guy, too. This is a story that kept me turning pages and was difficult to put down. If you enjoy a clean romantic read with a great mystery, then I recommend this one.
