Diamond Rings are Deadly Things by Rachelle J. Christensen
Adrielle Pyper knows how to plan a wedding, and she is especially good at pleasing bridezillas. But when her biggest client and best friend is murdered just three days before the wedding, Adri's world falls apart. She moves to the resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho, and starts from scratch. Thanks to Adri's impeccable taste and unique style, she lands two celebrity clients, and her business seems headed for success--that is, until someone vandalizes the specialty wedding dresses she imported from overseas. The race is to uncover a secret hidden within the yards of satin and lace before Adri becomes the next victim. With a delightful blend of mystery, toe-curling kisses, humor, and spine-tingling thrills. Diamond Rings are Deadly Things is a romantic suspense novel that will keep you turning pages long into the night.
I started following Rachelle a few years ago, and when I heard she had a new romantic suspense novel coming out, I was excited to read it. The title caught my attention, and the setting is one I've visited-two aspects that always make a novel that much more enjoyable for me.
I'm not particularly crafty and found myself a bit impatient for the resolution of the mystery during some parts focused on crafts, but I think those aspects of the book (including the tips from Rachelle's real website) will appeal to a lot of people (the promotion of her site was a little odd to me, but the tips are a great fit for the crafty aspects of the story).
Diamond Rings Are Deadly Things is a good mystery that kept me guessing. Was it the jewelry store owner? The delivery man? I suspected quite a few of the characters, and appreciated the twists.
If you are looking for a clean, romantic suspense novel, be sure to check out Diamond Rings Are Deadly Things.
