“The weaving of the relationships between all the characters in the story makes it so enjoyable and adds to the mystery. Do we ever really ‘know’ another person, or what they may be capable of doing?”



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. Although the books are written as a series, they can be read in any order.
