Mystery with a splash of romance…

Chicago Tribune reporters Emma and Grace have been best friends since college despite coming from different worlds. When Grace is assigned to cover an annual charity ball and auction being held at a lakeside mansion and her boyfriend bails on her, she brings Emma as her plus one. The night is going smoothly until Emma finds the host’s brother unconscious in the study. Though at first it is thought he was tipsy and stumbled, it soon becomes clear more is afoot, as the wall safe is empty and a three-million-dollar diamond necklace is missing. With visions of becoming ace investigative journalists, Emma and Grace set out to solve the mystery, much to the chagrin of the handsome local detective.

About the Author

Elizabeth McKenna’s love of books reaches back to her childhood, where her tastes ranged from Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys to Stephen King’s horror stories. She had never read a romance novel until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene). She combined her love of history, romance, and a happy ending to write Cera’s Place and Venice in the Moonlight. Her contemporary romance novel, First Crush Last Love, is loosely based on her life during her teens and twenties. The Great Jewel Robbery is her debut cozy mystery, and she hopes readers will like it as much as they have enjoyed her romances.

Elizabeth lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn’t writing, working, or being a mom, she’s sleeping.

THE GREAT JEWEL ROBBERY by Elizabeth McKenna is a very enjoyable and fun-to-read debut cozy mystery. You will love BFFs Emma and Grace immediately and then form good and bad opinions of all the others who attend the posh weekend charity event that Grace’s friend is putting on.

Of course the jewels ($3 million worth and the top billed item at the auction) are stolen as per the title. EVERYONE is suspected; guests, family, hired help, and even the two girls. But, the reader knows exactly who did it right from the start! (Haha. Bet you’re wro-ong!)

Emma and Grace decide to investigate despite a decent local police force led by the oh, SO handsome (swoon) lead detective. Everyone has to stick around, so the girls might as well ask some questions. Right?

At first, I thought this would be just an amazing “caper” mystery, but then there’s that pesky body that suddenly makes an appearance. (Sigh.There is ALWAYS a body.)  But from that point on, the book races towards a climax and ending. The thief/murderer steps boldly out of the shadows and makes one last desperate move that endangers both Emma and Grace.

An excellent read. I highly recommend this fun, humorous, easy-reading mystery. I hope Elizabeth McKenna has even more of these delicious cozies in her back pocket!
