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.

Mystery, suspense, murder and romance all intriguingly tied together in one very fun walk-down-the-aisle wedding story!

Adrielle has opened her own wedding planning business and her business card reads:

"Adrielle Pyper's Dream Weddings
Where happily ever after is your destination."

But happily ever after isn't suppose to be so hard!

Working with 'bridezillas.'
Having her store vandalized.
Wedding dresses stolen.
Threatening pictures left about.
Two men vying for her heart.
And a secret within the folds of satin and lace.

Adri will have to sort through her feelings of the past and decide how to move forward with the future "before she becomes the next victim."

"A delightful blend of mystery, toe-curling kisses,
humor, and spine-tingling thrills!"

LOVED. LOVED. LOVED. IT!
AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL!
SO WANT MORE FROM THIS AUTHOR!

I've read other books by this author and I think she does a really good job with the genre. I've always been a sucker for weddings, ever since I was a little girl and I absolutely loved that this story was centered around a wedding planner and her two big weddings of the summer.

Adri has issues from her past that make it hard to deal with life at times, but I love the way she throws herself into her work and into her crafting website, www.mashedpotatoesandcrafts.com. Each chapter begins with a wedding tip from the website and I enjoyed so many of them so much, I actually got onto my computer and checked to see if this is a real website...and it is!! Adri is such an organized and stable character. She's also real. When placed in dangerous situations, her reactions seem very true to how a "normal" everyday person would react. I loved the friendship that she had with her partner, Lorea. The way they handled the resident diva, Sylvia, was great.

Of course, there is a love triangle element and I found myself trying to decide which guy I wanted to root for...right along with Adri. Luke is her rival of sorts, but is very good-looking. Dallas is also good-looking, yet he seems a little on the shy side. Such a hard decision!

The mystery was quite mysterious and not one that I figured out--I was guessing throughout. I was suspicious of everyone! I loved the romantic elements, of course. It sounds like this is going to be a series and I can't wait to find out what comes next!

Content: nothing really to note as far as violence and language; some kissing, but totally clean!

I waited a long time for Rachelle Christensen's new book, and it was well worth the wait! From the clever cover (which attracted a lot of attention from those who saw me reading it) to the last page of the story, I was, thoroughly, entertained! I had seen other reviewers talk about a twist at the end, so when I figured out early on who the "bad person" was, I was a little disappointed that I had, already, discovered the twist. Ha! I should have known better. I was too busy getting ready for Easter to read it in one sitting, but I did manage it in two days :)

When I first signed up for this I wasn’t sure what to expect. It sounded fun and interesting. A light cute mystery. One my mom always says to give a whirl. So I gave it a shot. I was glad I did. This was just what I needed. A fun mystery that had just the amount of romance, light moments combined with those heavy times as well while it entertained you and you didn’t need to try to infer what was happening or figure it out. The story just flowed and kept you in the moment without taxing you. You get entertained watching Adri and Lorea deal with Bridezilla Syliva and her antics, intrigued by the mystery of the dresses and their connection to the robbery of them and the stalking of Adri, entertained by Luke and his struggling feeling over Adri as she tries to cope with hers for him and her dating life in general, the mystery of her best friends death Briette and how it relates to Adri and her actions in this book, and the romance of Dallas and Adri and how off it felt from the beginning. The plot twists that surround the wedding dresses, Adri’s love life and her playing detective are great and help keep you intrigued. Each chapter gives you some fun craft tidbits but also gives you a entertaining moment in the book. You see how things play out and feel the excitement for the planning of a wedding, to the mystery of the dresses and the danger that Adri is in. But there isn’t a heaviness to the story. Ms. Christensen has written this so that you really are just being entertained instead of feeling bogged down or like you are being brought in to many directions at once. You are just kept in the moment and not really allowed to wander and try to ponder things to much.Read more ›
