Title: DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
Authors: Jennifer AlLee and Lisa Karon Richardson
Publisher: Whitaker House
A man masquerading as a missionary…
A beguiling woman who buys his bluff…
And the detective who just might make him lay all his cards on the table…
DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH is a great co-authored book. I was thoroughly captivated by this tale of a fugitive on the run, the clumsy lady who can't manage hoop skirts without them being a lethal weapon of mass destruction, and a pinkerton agent who is on a manhunt. I couldn't help but fall in love with both Grant and the Pinkerton. Lily was charming but tended to act first and think later which made for some interesting moments.
If you are looking for a fun historical with plenty of twists, turns, and laugh-out-loud moments, then DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH is the book to choose. Its the first book in the authors' Charm & Deceit series. I can't wait to read the others if they are as fun as this book. Don't miss DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH. Great book. 255 pages. $12.99. 5 stars.
