What do you do with a diamond no one wants? You can’t keep it. Or can you?

While cleaning her ex-husband’s effects out of the attic, Terri finds an exquisite diamond pendant necklace. She’s determined to return the necklace to its proper owner, but the owner was brutally killed, a murder which remains unsolved, and her heirs want nothing to do with the diamond. Terri embarks upon a journey researching charities to which she can donate the diamond. When her research becomes dangerous, Terri contemplates solving the murder herself. Her best friend, Melanie, jumps feet first into investigating the murder, but her neighbor, Ryder, doesn’t want Terri exposed to any danger. Ryder, to Terri’s surprise, also wants to be more than neighbors with Terri. Luckily, he’s prepared to take any measure necessary to keep her safe because someone is determined to stop her inquiries.

Join Terri on her quest to find a home for the diamond, which may result in the unveiling of a murderer – if she survives long enough.



Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Finders Not Keepers was a clever book with the perfect combination of mystery and romance!

Terri is cleaning out her attic, going through some of her ex-husband’s things when she finds a beautiful diamond necklace. She knows nothing about who lived there before her, so she decides to find out who the necklace belongs to. Who knew what an adventure this would turn out to be, one that involves a murder, puts her in danger, and possibly on the path to a new love.

I just loved Terri. She was funny and smart, and her ex was an idiot to let her go. She has a hard time thinking that her sexy neighbor Ryder would even look twice at her. Imagine her surprise when she realizes he wants to date her. He is a PI, and he agrees to help her solve the mystery as he shows her he is serious about getting to know her. Ryder is a guy any woman would fall for. He is the whole package…good looking and very protective of Terri.

I loved Terri’s best friend, Melanie. She is quite funny! The story was well-written. The mystery kept me guessing, and the romance was sweet. I loved the quotes at the beginning of the chapters about librarians. I’m so glad this is just the beginning of this series. I can’t wait to see where the story will go for Terri and Ryder.



About the Author

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.

Finders, Not Keepers is my thirteenth novel.
