    Diamonds aren't forever

    Enjoyed this very much. Likeable characters, exception, of course the bad guys. Looking forward to reading more in this series.

    I really enjoyed Diamonds Aren't Forever.

    I loved it! It was just as good as the Samantha Sweet or Charlie Parker books.

    I wondered when the title said 'not forever'. Perfect for the book

    I enjoyed the plot immensely, chasing down 'Frank' with it's twist & turns. I'm a fan of spunky older women but I would never even think about doing what Pen and the others did.

    Diamonds Aren't Forever by Connie Shelton.

    A rather disappointing read as the story line was just too implausible to be credible. I am an ardent follower of the Charlie Parker & Samantha Sweet series so will continue to follow the Heist Ladies Mysteries to see how they develop.

    First book in a new action series

    Overall, I liked this book. It is the first book in a new series and they always seem to have a few flaws. I felt sad for Pen's situation and liked the multiple perspectives of the characters involved in the mystery. I enjoy the puzzles and frustrations of "con" mysteries so my emotions were immediately engaged. However, the start was better than the rest. I think the series has potential depending on how Connie develops these characters and their relationships. In this book we don't really learn anything about any of the characters. There is a limited backstory for Pen but nothing about the other characters. The relationships between the women are not discussed and they don't grow. But I do like the characters and I do see their potential for growth, back stories and some zany relationships. I understood this book was an action novel but I found the action very odd. Usually action speeds up the story to the climax and conclusion. There was no speeding up and not much action. There was lots of travel and the narrative switched between the three main storylines but not very much actually happened. This made the story seem to drag and feel like it was too long. I have enjoyed many of Connie's other books so I am hoping she will find her way with this series as well.
