I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Feisty Spirited Latinas; Gigi and Lou (Lourdes) are the best kind of lifelong friends. The kind that get each other in trouble. Gigi in pursue of a deeper understanding with a recently acquired belief in Karma and Lou the insatiable gossip complement each other in THE JEWLER’S MARK in a fun and believable manner. An international array of characters in set in Miami is a page turning adventure through the world or Russian organized crime, Cuban diamond dealers and averse Ukrainians. All of the characters have a defined and interesting purpose. Love, crime, murder and a wide variety of foods develop into a most enjoyable read.
I am having a hard time rating this book, I would actually give it a 3 1/2. The problems I have with it is in the beginning I actually disliked the main character Gigi and her friend Lourdes, they come across and egotistical, self centered and basically "mean girls". I admit Gigi not as much and she admits that she is trying to change. Later in the book I changed opinions on Gigi, she became more likable and Lourdes was growing on me. I also was bothered with the attitude of Gigi was not going to tell the police anything, she can handle it herself. Now these are quirks of mine that annoy me and probably will not bother most. This all being said what does shine through is the love and respect of family and community. Lourdes will jump in and help when needed, Gigi watching out for her brothers comes across as real. I love Detective Garcia, he is a cop that is actually ahead of the game in this story, refreshing to read. The setting of a jewelry store is unique and I enjoyed reading about a little of the work entailed. The mystery was good, I had part of it figured out but not all of it. I will continue on with this series. *I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
