Sparking rocks. Family Secrets. Seductive Lies.
Mia’s advertising career masks a side job in the family business - the business is thievery and the competition kills. Partnering with her brother, Andy, Mia is drawn into a short timeline to plan a diamond heist to make good on Andy’s double-cross of the crime boss who hired him for the prior job.
Openly teasing the mark, Mia plays with the jeweler’s attraction to her, insinuating herself into his life, gaining his confidence. When Andy’s past threatens them both, Mia abandons the heist and disappears. The mark, under Mia’s spell, hides and protects her from danger. They are both in peril as her brother’s stalker closes in on them. Alternating between ecstasy and fear, she has to make a fateful decision.
Is she placing her trust in the wrong man? Can a relationship built on lies become real?

Grips from the get-go
This story had me hooked in the prologue when a man is mysteriously murdered in prison. The victim turns out to be Mia’s and Andy’s father. He trained them to be top-notch jewel thieves. Mia distracts the mark while Andy cracks the safe. Both siblings have day jobs. Mia works for an advertising agency and Andy owns a car repair shop.
On their last theft, Andy shortchanged a boss and now his life is on the line unless he replaces the stolen diamonds or pays for them. Mia reluctantly agrees to help him, but she finds herself attracted to the new mark. Then everything goes wrong and Mia gets a message from Andy telling her to “Run!”
“Diamonds and Lies” is fast paced and entertaining. The plots and subplots were masterfully woven together. The narrator was wonderful
Story of intrigue and deceit
Suspenseful, twisting story. Mia is pulled back into the family's life of crime when her brother desperately needs her help. As she starts her quest to steal back some diamonds, her plans become disrupted. She finds that very few people are telling her the truth and she is scrambling to get what she needs and to decide who she can trust. And how long will her company put up with her claims of a sick aunt?
This is an exciting story of intrigue, desperation, deceit and maybe a bit of lust.
I enjoyed reading this story and I would recommend it for a mature reader.
I listened to an audio version of this book that I enjoyed. It was well narrated.
I received a copy of the audiobook from the author. This is my honest review.
