***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Leslie van Dorn needs to make a major life change—getting away from the dog-eat-dog corporate world, as well as a personal loss, so she buys a large turn-of-the-century home in order to turn it into an inn.
She doesn’t care about the rumors that it’s haunted—she just wants a new life.
And she sure wouldn’t mind finding the missing gems that belonged to Red Eye Sal, a bootlegger who used to live in the house.
Blacksmith Declan Zyler, who has more work than he can handle working on historical restorations, has suddenly acquired a fifteen-year-old daughter he never knew he had. This turns his life upside down when he decides to take on the role of single father.
When Leslie hires Declan to restore the iron staircase in her inn, neither of them realize they are disturbing a spirit from days gone by…and until they determine how to put that ghost to rest, neither Leslie nor Declan will be able to move on with their lives.
Set in a small, touristy town filled with quirky characters, The Gems of Vice and Greed is a fun, fast-paced, sweet, sexy and spooky story for readers who love Nancy Drew, Barbara Michaels, or any intriguing mystery.
As with her other work, Colleen paints such a picture that you get swept up in the story and just don’t want to put the book down until you have answers. The romance winding through was great and even though it is more contemporary than her other works that I love I still thoroughly enjoyed it.
A great mystery, a little paranormal, and a lot of romance! A winning combination for me! V””V
