DIAMOND RINGS ARE DEADLY THINGS by Rachelle J. Christensen
ABOUT THE BOOK
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 have a great fondness for cozy murder mysteries as long as they are clean and not too graphic. So this book was just my cup of tea. I enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the setting. The inclusion of the crafts and crafting website were a nice touch. There were a lot of really fun ideas included. I especially enjoyed Adri as a character, her feistiness and determination to succeed in her business despite some pretty big challenges made her easy to care about. The book was full of other great characters too, like Adri's assistant, Lorea, Luke, the divorce attorney, Tony, the police officer, and Adri's family. The two different mysteries and the confusing romantic situations Adri finds herself in make for a sympathetic and interesting read. I'm definitely eager to read more in this series.
