A LOVE STORY WITH GEMSTONES– AND UFOs!
“The romantic plot is sweet, hot and well-paced.” -Kirkus ReviewsWhen struggling artist/shoe clerk Caddy Keyhoe stumbles across what may be a lost and untraceable diamond, her first reaction is down-to-earth: Maybe I can sell it. But how odd to be finding it in the gutter now, after last night’s dream of a UFO scattering bright gemstones. Research via Google leads her to the website of melancholy Alec Rix, semi-failed writer and newly-minted UFO authority—courtesy of his published interview with octogenarian Hatchell T. Beckham Sr., retired from farming and strangely eager to discredit the new crop circle on the Beckham property. Was the crop circle perpetrated by a neighborhood hoaxer? Or by those blazing diamond-shaped UFOs that just about everybody in Hopkins, South Carolina—except Hatch—claims to have seen…?
As Caddy’s art career takes a magical turn for the stratosphere, Alec’s friendship with Hatch deepens through the old farmer’s tale of his long-lost family. Could there be a book in this? The blocked author has to wonder. But when pursuit of the story sends him blundering toward a radiant Caddy on the biggest night of her life, priorities immediately change. Because what can it really mean, “to follow a star”? And what does Hawaii have to do with it?
A feet-on-the-ground story with its head in the clouds, Diamonds In The Sky reports from the Unknown with quiet wit, endearing characters, and the speculation that love just might be forever—even if not all diamonds are.
A beautifully written love story that will be appreciated by lovers of literary fiction as much as romance readers. It’s also paranormal, in the sense that it asks you to open your mind to what might be—and what might be possible! For fans of gorgeous literary romances like THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE, MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA, Joyce Carol Oates’s A BLOODSMOOR ROMANCE, WAR BRIDES, Patty Friedmann’s PICK-UP LINE, M.A. Harper’s own CAJUN SPIRIT, and anything by Alice Hoffman.
“Deft characterization, wry humor and quiet but momentous scenes of growing affection create a deep-down satisfying novel.” -Kirkus Reviews
