This book hangs together well. It has a decent amount of action, 2 crazy older Southern ladies, stunning gems, a gorgeous but obnoxiously loud conure, & a hint of romance. If you don't mind a bit of occassional Christian cheerleading (it was right at my limit) & gemological education, this book is a nice read.

I don't usually like romance books but for free I gave it a try. I was a very cute story and I enjoyed it. I was a very fast read. I would consider reading more by this author.

This was a good story. I learned quite a bit about the jewelry buying trade that I never new. The main character's crazy aunt was fun to read about.

The main character is the least interesting of them all. I would rather have had more of the crazy old women. It is very religious, which would be fine if she did not feel the need to put down other beliefs that do not mesh with her own. The story had potential but it was not executed well. I do not recommend this book.

But I found the author's attitude toward Buddhism, one of the world's most tolerant religions, so intolerable as to be offensive. I nearly stopped reading right there. For the record, I am neither Christian nor Buddhist. If not for the author's obvious lack of empathy for other religions, I would have given this book 5 stars. Fun characters and an enjoyable dabble into televised shopping.

The story promotes values without feeling "preachy". The romance, while pedictable was very entertaining. Stolen rubies, murder, sabotage, meddling old ladies.....what's not to like!

Oh my goodness! I should have listened to the numerous people out there who rated this book two stars or lower! It's definitely written in a way that is hard to follow who is talking. And those disappearing southern accents, what??! I read anything, so the christian aspect of this book is not a detterant for me, but the way it is written is. Pass this book up. There's way better christian books out there.

To start with, this is Christian Literature although it is not described as such. I also have to be completely honest and say that partly due to this, I have only read 19% of the book before giving up. I just can't go on! The writing style does absolutely nothing for me as I found it to be quite jarring. It is written in the first person and present tense which does work in some books but if I were to meet "Andi" in real life then I think I'd only last about 5 minutes before walking away. She is quite condescending to everyone she meets and I really don't think that people talk that way or maybe I'm just very, VERY, lucky in that I don't know any! If you like Christian literature and can take the thanks to God, the Lord and Jesus on every page as well as accepting the writing style then you just might like this one but not for me!

I loved this book, the fact that it is set in my home state made it an even better read. The characters and everything just came to life for me. I guess because it is set in Kentucky is what made it so exciting for me to read.

This is the first book of Ginny Aiken I have read. I was not real sure what to expect. I really enjoyed the book, it is a story about a woman attempting to focus on God but also function in the here and now. The story shows just how most people struggle with balancing God, work, and the way they feel about other. I am looking forward to reading more of Ginny Aiken's work.

Fun, Clean Novel of a young woman who loves her career but her love of God and her Aunt is stronger. When need arises, she returns to her 'roots' to aid her aunt. From there is action, mystery, and romance. Ginny Aiken successfully adds humor to the whole situation which causes the characters to become endearing to the reader. It was fairly predictable but was well worth reading.

Their was just way too much dialog especially in the first 4 chapters. Sometimes it was even hard to tell who was talking.

This was an enjoyable read with a main character that was feisty, feminine, and fun. Choose this book if you want to curl up with a book and have a few chuckles.
