Overview

She Thought She Was Leaving the Rat Race Behind...

Gemologist Andie Adams is suffering a bad case of burnout in her stress-filled job in New York. So she jumps at the chance to ditch her wormy corner of the Big Apple for a home in Kentucky with her lovable but off-the-wall Aunt Weeby. After all, things should be slower paced in Kentucky--right?

Wrong. Andie reluctantly joins the Shop-Til-U-Drop Network as its newest jewelry and gemstone show host. Sparks fly between her and the know-nothing (but drop-dead gorgeous) jock they've hired as her cohost. And when Andie's job exposes her to a international investigation, the mayhem escalates during an exotic journey.

Explosions, missing gems, sabotage--life was never this exciting in New York!

    Christian mystery

    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.

    Very cute story

    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.

    Way too boring!

    This book was very boring! And way too religous for my taste. I am Wiccan and believe everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. So when she made the remark about other religions, I decided I'd wasted enough of my time. I wasn't aware it was that type of book. Bad enough reading all the "Christian" stuff, but I won't tolerate downing someones else's beliefs. This was what led me away from Chistianity.

    Enjoyed It

    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.

    Good read, clean fun.

    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!

    Great story

    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.

    Fun

    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.

    The main character is the least interesting of them all. I woul

    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.

    Hard to read!!

    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.

    Sweet and Witty

    Sometimes the internal dialogue and external conversations were a bit hard to follow.
