“Whoa. How’d you get your hands on one of those?”

Ben moved the camera to point toward the upper floor. “It’s amazing what you can find on the black market. Or in the classifieds.”

This light-hearted spy story is an adventure taking the reader from Arizona to New York to London and back again with lots of fun-filled banter.

I enjoyed the fact that Dee, the heroine, was not an experienced spy, and was in fact just a college student who ended up in the right place

Never Say Necklace #1 – Even though I read Emeralds are Forever first, full of spoilers, that didn’t keep me from enjoying NSN, the first book of the series. NSN is another well written, action-packed, humorous story with an interesting plot. The characters, again, are interesting and they do grow more in EAF. Their dialogue is realistic and there aren’t any stupid formulas or drama, just plain entertainment. I love this author’s work and look forward to more of her books, for which I’ll keep vo ...more

It was okay

One married couple were in the business of recovering stolen jewels, which was a covert funded operation. Their handler, Ben, kept track of their activities and extricated them from danger. The wife's friend found Ben irresistible and started hanging around him, which he allowed despite the secret nature of his business. She helped him rescue her friend from a thug called Frank who broke her husband's leg with a baseball bat. Ben and Dee attended a ball to reclaim a precious emer

Emeralds are Forever by Jaclyn Hardy is an adventure of a book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Ben or Ed and Dee as they search for an emerald; as they are chased and hunted and face danger. There is action, romance, comedy and lots of other things going on. This is a book that will keep you reading and enjoying the adventure!

The plot and characters are well developed. I received this book as a gift and I always review every book that I read. What a great gift!

This is the 2nd book in the series. Although it’s a stand-alone book, I think that I would have connected with the characters faster if I had read the 1st one. I like Jaclyn Hardy’s writing style. I was swept up in the intrigue. I enjoyed the sweet romance in the midst of all the danger. I always like a HEA, and I got it in this book. I would definitely read more from this author.

What the heck did I just read?

This book started out sort of okay, but by halfway through nothing made any sense at all. It was as is major chunks were missing. Nothing flowed, no exposition, no logic. There were sudden major shifts in plot with no explanations, characters kept popping up with no real introduction. I honestly don’t know what even happened in this book.

This was really good. It was busy, meaning there was so much going on. Accusation and craziness. It was so cute and ended up being a really sweet love story. I was distracted a bit here and there with life so I want to read it again, but It was really cute.

This book was excellent! I loved how the book kept me involved to the end. I couldn't put it down! I really like the Jaclyn Hardy writes, but this was one of my favorites!!! I have to go get "Never Say Necklace" so I can read that one tomorrow!!!

This is a very exciting, interesting edge of your seat adventure with a clean romance as well. This story works as a stand alone, but now I want to read the first book, too. The characters are well developed - and amazing. Regarding the plot, you have secret agents , spies or adventurers, an ordinary civilian, shadowy evil figures, expert surveillance, computer hacking, a romance and even a jet pack. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good escapist adventure.
