Book Summary:

Adrielle Pyper knows how to plan a wedding, and she’s especially good at pleasing bridezillas. But when her biggest client and best friend is married just three days before the wedding, Adri’s world falls apart. She moves to the resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho, and starts from scratch. Thanks to Adri’s impeccable tast and unique style, she lands two celebrity clients, and her business seems headed for success—that is, until someone vandalizes the specialty wedding dresses she imported from overseas. The race is on to uncover a secret hidden within the yards of satin and lace before Adri becomes the next victim.

With a delightful blend of mystery, toe-curling kisses, humor, and spine-tingling thrills, Diamond Rings are Deadly Things is a romantic suspense novel that will keep you turning pages long into the night.


Diamond Rings are Deadly Things is a cute clean cozy mystery. I enjoyed that Rachelle kept us guessing and didn’t give away too many clues too early in the story.  I was well over half way through before I began to suspect who the suspect was and how everything might tie together.

A fun story with a host of quirky characters this is sure to be a hit with cozy mystery lovers.

This is the first book in a series but worked well as a stand alone.  The story will continue in the next book but I felt satisfied at the end of this one.

  1. I just requested this one on Netgalley. It sounds like a lot of fun.

  2. I really enjoyed this one too! Definitely my kind of mystery. Not too scary, but also plenty sweet, and a good dose of humor.
