Marybeth, Hollister and Jane is a fictional story, set in the rural area of Callicoon, New York. The book has a very realistic vibe to it and all the characters seem believable. It follows the journey of a handful of people trying to locate the Eagle Diamond, stolen in the 1960's. At the start, most of them were from the same organization, LVAJ, who's job was to locate stolen arts, artifacts, etc. and the pass them to someone else. But as the story unfolds, the head of the organization, Peter Re ...more

There was a lot going on in this book. There are 3 different main characters who each have their own backstory and issues. I think that the author does a great job of balancing those characters and their individual journeys.

It’s an up and down roller-coaster of a story when you are going back and forth, but in a good way. It keeps you flipping pages as you are trying to keep up.

I was pleasantly surprised by how invested I became in the mystery and plot and how quickly I was invested as well.

This book will make you want to cuddle up for a while and get lost in the story and mystery that Vera Jane Cook has created.

It starts off with having such a great main characters. I loved the balance between them all.

Follow that up with a perfectly crafted mystery and a wonderful setting and you get a great Cozy Mystery.

Don't miss this one!

Kudos to Vera Jane Cook, I wasn’t able to figure out the mystery before the end!

This book completely captivated me. I was in it from the beginning and hanging on every word along the way.

Such a great cast of characters with a wide range of personalities that made reading about them fun.

The book’s well-written with well-rounded characters, the story is quite intriguing and unique.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Vera Jane Cook; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

The title threw me off. The book ending reflects the title but the rest of the book is more about thieves and a diamond. The story was rather interesting because I have never given any thought to the black market for stolen goods. The characters were interesting in how they wove together. I liked the book.

I read the book on NetGalley

Vera Jane Cook managed to bring us developed characters and a solid plot line.

Overall this really had superb writing and a great attention to detail.
