The Scottish Diamond neatly portrays a developing romantic relationship while it weaves its way through historical and current intrigues. While the story picks up from an earlier tale, the author so skillfully leads the reader through sufficient backstory of plot and characters that the book works on its own. It entices the reader to read the first book, Palace of Deception.
A book leaving me wanting more is not only a good read, but a promise of more to come. I would have liked additional mood setting on Edinburgh to give the reader a more in-depth sense of place and more development of the two main characters as both seem a bit thin. In other words, I would have liked to have seen the story developed into a full novel. That said, the novella works well as it is and I look back on the time it took to read it with a warm glow that goodness can find ways to triumph even in darkened circumstances.
Lizzie Smith runs and acts in a small production company in Edinburgh where she has returned under mysterious circumstances from summer employment in a small Mediterranean country. She is deeply attached to her former bodyguard, Léon Bressac and they arrive in Edinburgh to live together in her apartment as the book opens. Lizzie immediately picks up the threads of her life by working on a stage production of Macbeth with her company of actors and friends.
Lurking behind them are dark figures from Montverrier, a country filled with intrigue and double-dealing. These men come to Edinburgh to guard a national treasure known as the Scottish Diamond, won centuries before in a card game from the titled Scottish Falmire family. The plot follows Lizzie and Leon as their fates become intertwined with the diamond leading them into a web of threatening circumstances that force a breach in their relationship.
