The Carolina Emerald is Coming May 1, 2017!

 

A college friend’s engagement gives Kimberley West the rare opportunity to dig in a private emerald mine.  The fun weekend, however, quickly deteriorates when the friends stumble onto a plot fueled by revenge and greed.  Events escalate and soon the sheriff pursues one of their group as a prime suspect.

In true Indiana Jones fashion, Kim and her sidekick poodle uncover buried treasure – and trouble.

The Carolina Emerald is the third book in the Jeweler’s Gemstone Mystery Series.  Readers say they’ve fallen in love with the heart-warming cast of characters, savored the interwoven gemstone legends and lore and laughed at the antics of two precocious dogs.

Do you like fast-paced mysteries featuring a resourceful amateur sleuth and filled with unexpected twists, a touch of romance and fun?  If so, please join The Diamond Digest to learn more about The Carolina Emerald becomes available.  To join, please click here.

Party Time!

Have you ever wanted to see your name appear in a book?  Well, now’s your opportunity.

To celebrate The Pirate’s Ruby, the second book in the Jeweler’s Gemstone Mystery Series, Dickinson Jewelers is holding a cocktail party at their Dunkirk, Maryland store — and the winner of one of their evening drawings will name a character in the next Kimberley West mystery.

If you’ve ever attended one of the Dickinsons’ events, you’ll know they put on a fun, high-class party.  This one features a drool-worthy display of rubies.

There will be drawings for a number of great prizes, good food and lots of laughter.  I’ll be giving a talk/reading and, afterwards, signing bookmarks and booklets.

The display features a treasure chest just like the one in The Pirate's Ruby.
