Ainsley Walker has been hired to travel to Uruguay and bid on, then find the stolen amethyst treasure. Ms. Walker didn't think her life was exciting enough until she traveled to Uruguay. This entertaining and fun read has a ridiculous but enjoyable plot and the character of Ainsley is so adorable to read. This is a quick and adorable mystery to cuddle up and enjoy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This story is a brisk, entertaining romp in the vehicle of a stolen gemstone mystery. J.A. Jernay takes the reader on the adventurous journey through Uruguay as experienced by Ainsley Walker, a young and fashionable sleuth who stumbles into the detective business (see the teaser prelude "The American Turquoise"). The book is as much a tour of Uruguay as it is a mystery, and it succeeds at both. Jernay delivers an authentic-feeling rendering of the history, customs, geography, and language of that country that makes you want to go there. As a mystery, it may not be at the level of Raymond Chandler, but it definitely pulls you along and holds your interest.
This book will appeal to anyone who wants a quick, fun escape to another place, particularly if they are into travel and learning about other cultures. The fashion and jewelry leitmotifs seem geared towards a female readership, but otherwise, the story is likely to be enjoyed by men as well.
Sketching a country with historical and cultural strokes, and tying this in with a fast storyline is something Jernay does well, and I look forward to other books in this series.

I read the book and loved every minute of it. The author did an excellent job with this book and has a wonderful storyline. His words used to describe the main character, Ainsley Walker are brilliant. You get an immediate sense of Ainsley's emotions through his description of her body language and the scenery around her. It makes you want to keep reading this book. I highly recommend purchasing this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
