Book 3 in the five-star Kimberley West Gemstone Mystery Series

A friend’s engagement gives gemologist Kimberley West the chance to dig in a private North Carolina emerald mine. But when Kim’s standard poodle unearths an emerald stolen from a NY museum 60 years ago, she suddenly faces her toughest mystery yet.

How did a huge emerald snatched from a New York museum end up buried in an emerald mine 500 miles away?

Before Kim can tackle that mystery, her friends stumble onto a body. The sheriff pursues one of Kim’s group as the prime suspect.

Convinced the murder is somehow connected to the emerald, Kim launches an investigation into the emerald’s past – and uncovers a plot fueled by revenge and greed.

With the body count rising, Kim races to unmask a killer before someone else dies.

The Carolina Emerald interweaves emerald legend and lore into a fast-paced whodunit featuring a feisty heroine, charming characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing. Books in the series can be read in any order.
