My Thoughts: I was pulled into this story from the very first chapter. The whole premise of the book intrigued me from the beginning and I have to say that the author delivered a stellar read. I especially enjoyed how the author weaved Nina's past into her present. It came together cohesively and really added that extra special layer to this story. The jewels had me mesmerized and I often found my mind wandering as to what they looked like and feeling a sort of attachment to them. Strange, huh? This story has many elements that make it a top-notch read; a mystery, closely guarded secrets, well-written fleshed out characters, time periods that just call to you, gorgeous gems, and wonderful writing.

Recommend? Without hesitation. If you're looking for a smart story that comes alive while reading then I think this would a story for you. I've pretty much read nothing but top-notch reviews on this book and I believe this book truly deserves them all and more. Treat yourself and read this one!!

Laura Top 10! That is always a good sign! Right now I am reading American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld and that will be on my Top 10. Have you read it?
