The Cutting Edge | Jeffery Deaver

I finished, although the last 50% was a bit of a chore. Deserves a solid so-so as I could not guess what the twist would be, as there‘s always a twist in Deaver‘s books. The picture is of the Hope Diamond. The cutting edge title refers to diamonds.

Super disappointing book. Worst Patterson book I've read. Here's my Goodreads review in top ten reasons why I hated it format.

By far one of my best reads. It was confusing,suspenseful, down right fantastic. I read this treasure during basic training and wow was it great. The book is broken up into three stages. 541 pages of pure magic. Might want to reconsider the ring on your finger🤫

Another rainy day and a perfect time to read! Was absolutely laughing my ass off about this one the other day xD I love the humor in this novel.

3.5⭐️

Taking a well rounded approach to the history of the diamond industry, this book provides the reader with information on the history (both good and bad) of the industry, details on how diamonds are made and found, and the process of how they start in the ground to when they end up in jewelry. I really enjoyed the focus on the mafia style actions of the De Beers company and stories behind the discovery and ownership of diamonds

I didn‘t hate this, but I certainly didn‘t love it and found it a bit of a slog to get through. The writing and the characters just didn‘t grab me. It could have been edited down, in my very humble opinion.

Piggins | Jane Yolen

Review: Piggins by Jane Yolen, 1987. Charlotte Award Book. This is a wonderful award winning book that tells the mystery of a stolen necklace. It allows readers to get involved with the story and make predictions of who did it.
Blurb: The illustrations make this book even better and add to the mystery of the story.
Quote: ““Our Piggins?“ Mrs. Reynard is clearly shocked, “He finds things, he does not take things.““

Good. Wasn‘t sure at first because near the beginning some things jarred, e.g. a character called Alice ‘harrumphed‘ twice in the space of a page, so I thought perhaps the author‘s so popular she was getting complacent and the editor didn‘t want to challenge it. But turns out they were isolated incidents and otherwise it was really good. Some ace one-liners, great structure, plot and characters.
