Mystery with a splash of romance…Chicago Tribune reporters Emma and Grace have been best friends since college despite coming from different worlds. When Grace is assigned to cover an annual charity ball and auction being held at a lakeside mansion and her boyfriend bails on her, she brings Emma as her plus one. The night is going smoothly until Emma finds the host’s brother unconscious in the study. Though at first it is thought he was tipsy and stumbled, it soon becomes clear more is afoot, as the wall safe is empty and a three-million-dollar diamond necklace is missing. With visions of becoming ace investigative journalists, Emma and Grace set out to solve the mystery, much to the chagrin of the handsome local detective.

REVIEW by LAWonder10:
This is a murder mystery which is,also, a fun read! Laced with humor, the author has created a captivating, intriguing, mystery, with a touch of romance.
Former college roommates, present journalist colleagues, Emma and Grace were raised in two different worlds, but that has not hindered their close friendship. Since Grace's date "bailed" on her, Emma is her Guest at a High profile social event... An event that could be an opportunity to earn the promotion they each seek. Will they be the first to solve the crime?
The characters are very endearing - even the bad guys! The reader can easily feel he/she is a part of the scenes and event. The Title is "fitting" as is the Book Cover Image.
This is well-written and very entertaining.
I offer a Five Stars rating.
* Although this book was gifted me, there were no stipulations for a positive review. This is my honest Review.
Meet the author:
Elizabeth McKenna’s love of books reaches back to her childhood, where her tastes ranged from Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys to Stephen King’s horror stories. She had never read a romance novel until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene). She combined her love of history, romance, and a happy ending to write the historical romance novels Cera’s Place and Venice in the Moonlight. Her contemporary romance novel, First Crush Last Love, is loosely based on her life (she eventually married her first crush)
The Great Jewel Robbery is her debut cozy mystery, and she hopes readers will like it as much as they have enjoyed her romances. Elizabeth lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn’t writing, working, or being a mom, she’s sleeping.
