From the Back Cover

She Thought She Was Leaving the Rat Race Behind... Gemologist Andie Adams is suffering a bad case of burnout in her stress-filled job in New York. So she jumps at the chance to ditch her wormy corner of the Big Apple for a home in Kentucky with her lovable but off-the-wall Aunt Weeby. After all, things should be slower paced in Kentucky--right? Wrong. Andie reluctantly joins the Shop-Til-U-Drop Network as its newest jewelry and gemstone show host. Sparks fly between her and the know-nothing (but drop-dead gorgeous) jock they've hired as her cohost. And when Andie's job exposes her to a international investigation, the mayhem escalates during an exotic journey. Explosions, missing gems, sabotage--life was never this exciting in New York! Former newspaper reporter Ginny Aiken discovered books at a very early age, writing her first novel at age fifteen. She is the author of the Silver Hills Trilogy and the Deadly Décor Mysteries. A frequent speaker at women's events and writers' conferences, Ginny lives with her husband and four sons in Pennsylvania.

Okay, I confess that I am completely and hopelessly now addicted to chick-lit. I just love, love, LOVE it! Since I fully intend to read much more of it in the future, I'm definitely going to have to be on the lookout for new authors and good recommendations for existing releases that are out there. As for this author....I've read some of her other books in the past, and really enjoyed them, but I had no idea that she had branched out into chick-lit. Thank goodness, she's written a whole series--not just one book--so I can get a good fill of chick-lit from an author that is already an A+ in my book. :o)

This book has several things that I just love. First of all, Andie works with diamonds and gemstones all the time. Seriously, is there any other job out there greater than that for a girl?!?! Then, on top of that, she's been offered an incredible opportunity in Louisville (of all places) to work for the Shop-Til-U-Drop (S.T.U.D.) Network as their jewelry host. So, she gets to be around all this jewelry AND be on tv...just too cool, in my opinion. And, just to keep it even more interesting, there's a little mystery thrown in there and what seems like might be a developing romance. Since there's 2 other books in the series, I expect that possible romance to play out furthur a little later on. Oh, and let me not forget to mention that this book is set in the south. Andie's travels do take her to a couple of other places around the world, but the fact that home for her is now in Kentucky puts a whole new spin on things.

I also got a kick out of the supporting characters. Aunt Weeby, Andie's aunt, is hilarious! She is a southern gal to the core, and has an opinion on practically everything.

The "Christian" heroine was snobby and constantly insulting people. She never sets foot in a church and doesn't bat an eye while explaining that her career is based on making her bosses rich on the backs of men in third world countries who work in dangerous mines for far less than a living wage. This is okay becasue God made those pretty rocks she likes. She mostly comes across as someone who talks to herself a lot and uses the word "Lord" while doing so. I think this would annoy both those hoping for a Chritian message and those prefering to avoid religious mentions.

As for the plot, there's really no romance, unless you count the frequent reminders that her co-host is good-looking. This might be okay for fans of cozy mysteries, but I didn't find the mystery aspect very believable.

Andrea "Andie" Adams is a master gemologist, and proud of it. She works in the high-stress diamond district in New York, and has three ulcers to prove it. Thinking a lower stress situation might be better, she jumps at the chance to quit her job and move back to Kentucky when her aunt breaks a leg and needs some assistance.

Not long after Andie arrives in Kentucky, she finds that Aunt "Weeby" and her best friend Mona are already scheming on Andie's behalf. Needing a job anyway, she decides to go along with their crazy idea to be the jewelry and gemstone host for Mona's TV Shopping network. Things go fine until Andie is introduced to her gorgeous co-host, Max, five minutes before her first show. Co-host? Andie was supposed to be the only host for the show!

It quickly becomes apparent that Max knows absolutely nothing about jewelry or gemstones, and he seems determined to rub Andie the wrong way by displaying that fact several times during each show. Things escalate from there...murder...a trip to an exotic poverty stricken country...missing rubies...flying bullets.... these might not be the typical ingredients for a chic-lit, but it works! And through it all, Mr. Magnificent (as Andie secretly calls him) Max continues to display his lack of gemstone knowledge.

My opinion: This was a really enjoyable Christian Chick-Lit read. Andrea "Andie" is a pretty fun character whose sarcastic mouth often gets the better of her. Max's lack of gemstone knowledge is often humorous and fun, but I felt that Andie was really too hard on him. He is not a "know-nothing jock" (as Andie puts it) -- he's not unintelligent in the least -- he just doesn't have a bunch of gemstone degrees from different colleges like Andie does.

This is the first book of a 3 part series. Right now they're 99 cents each. They build on each other. But If you like comical satirical wit you will love these 3 books.

Andi works in a high priced geologist job in NY. She leaves because she developed 3 ulcers. Back in Kentucky is her Aunt Weeby and her cronie Miss Mona. They are known as the dynamic duo.

Miss Mona created a shop-till-you-drop TV station. It's called S.T.U.D. All female employees. Until..... The dynamic duo talk Andi into starting a show that sells high quality gems.

She accepts and the duo come up with another crazy scheme. They hire a tall blond good looking jock, Max, that knows absolutely nothing about gems. He's also highly intelligent but Andi sees him as the surfer dude. Andi calls Max, the California Surfer Dude that knows nothing. And Max calls het Andi-Ana Jones. They irritate each other for fun.

Each book takes them to a different country to look at high quality gems. They are being chased by thugs and always wind up in trouble.

I like The way the relationship develops. They really rub each other the wrong way.But, it develops slowly, hysterically and it's fun to figure how they are going to one up each other. Of course at the end they have a happy ending.
