Sparkling rocks, family secrets, and seductive lies
Mia’s advertising career masks a side job in the family business―the business is thievery and the competition kills. Partnering with her brother, Andy, Mia is drawn into a short timeline to plan a diamond heist to make good on Andy’s double-cross of the crime boss who hired him for the prior job.
A Heist That Her Brother’s Life Depends On
Openly teasing the mark, Mia plays with the jeweler’s attraction to her, insinuating herself into his life, gaining his confidence. When Andy’s past threatens them both, Mia abandons the heist and disappears. The mark, under Mia’s spell, hides and protects her from danger. They are both in peril as her brother’s stalker closes in on them. Alternating between ecstasy and fear, she has to make a fateful decision.
Is she placing her trust in the wrong man? Can a relationship built on lies become real?
The three main characters are Mia Sloan...who is what appears to be a typical working girl, but she has an unsuspected, secret career in crime. Andy...her brother is well educated in the world of criminal activity as he has been well instructed in the art of theft by his/their father. Vince...is a private investigator with a hidden agenda in search of the murderer of his cousin Ethan.
Mia and Vince cross paths and are immediately attracted to each other but Mia is reluctant to mix business with pleasure as they seek to work together in this easy-to-read, enjoyable, mystery/romance novel. When the mob gets involved, Mia's life is in danger and Vince is quick to become her knight in shining armor.
Diamonds and Lies is my first exposure to talented Author Inge-Lise Goss and I am impressed with her well-written novel and down to earth style of writing. Good, clean fun is always appreciated in the books that I read!
