Diamond Rings are Deadly Things by Rachelle J. Christensen + Giveaway

Adrielle Pyper knows how to plan a wedding, and she's 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 on 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 have been patiently waiting for the day I got to read this book.  I was sent an ARC copy in the mail and it has just been sitting there, staring at me, waiting, until I could read it.  It’s much easier to ignore ebooks than print booksJ

Rachelle Christensen is a writer I always enjoy.  She has an easy reading style with good flow and good characters.  This book sort of mixes the light and fluffy with the suspense and danger.  I thought it was a good balance.

I know lots of people like mystery books where they are completely surprised by “who done it”.  That’s not me.  I really like figuring out who the bad guy is.  It makes me feel smart.  Haha.  Even though I know that was the author’s intent, to let me figure it out, I still like it.  In the beginning, I did suspect everyone of being involved somehow- the delivery driver, the jeweler neighbor, the boyfriend, everyone.   It was awesome.

At first I was a bit confused because it was feeling like I missed a previous story or something.  But slowly things unfolded and I had a back story within a story.

It’s obvious that the main character, Adri, has struggled through some awful things.  She is fighting every day to keep moving forward and capture her dreams.  As a reader, it gave me an instant sort of bond for Adri.  She was someone that I wanted to succeed.  She also has an awesome friend working with her and excellent family support.  Adri is a character I was rooting for from the beginning.

This is a light suspense/mystery book with some romance.  It was clean (YAY!!) and provided that feeling of escape that I love finding in a book.  

You can purchase Diamond Rings are Deadly Things at Amazon.
