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 married 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 tast 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 am so thrilled to be a part of this blog tour. This book is an absolute delight! I loved the characters, the mystery, the romance, the humor, the recipes, the crafts (and I don't craft). Such a fun book with excellent writing by its author and entertainment all around. Adri is so much fun and I loved her attention to detail and preciseness. The way she went about her day and planned her weddings (even under loads of stress and a sad past) was fun to read. I loved the chapter headings too with all the fun tips. This book reminds me a lot of Josi S. Kilpack's Sadie Hoffmiller series, which is a favorite of mine. Although they are different ages, I think Sadie and Adri have a lot in common. That being said, Adri can stand on her own! I also enjoyed the Ketchum/Sun Valley setting and small town feel and the careful details and expression about things. I enjoyed how Rachelle didn't throw all the back story and previous events before the book began, at the reader all at once. I loved easing in to the story and welcomed the addition of past events told throughout. It was a great way to keep me reading and reading!
Pick up your copy today! I know you will like it as much as I did.
