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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.

A fast read but too much religion. A light bit of fluff for beach time entertainment.Published 11 months ago by M. Weisman
This is a fast paced and fun read. Andi addresses the reader as if she is personally telling you the story and then throws in her own two cents as well, giving her character depth... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Glenda Mills
