The Diamond Secret by Lenora Worth

Book Description:

He’s a pirate, an adventurer—and Esther Carlisle has just let him into her New Orleans antiques shop. Cullen Murphy claims he knew Esther’s late father…and that her wild-dreaming daddy discovered the true location of the legendary chocolate diamond. Esther knows she should show the handsome treasure hunter the door. And she will.
In a minute. Everything changes when gun-wielding thugs barge in and start shooting. Esther may not trust Cullen, yet staying at his side is the only way for her to find the diamond first—and stay alive. But some treasures can be found only with the heart…
My Thoughts:
I really liked this book!  Esther was really close to her father.  Though he was a bit detached at times, he was all the family she had and she cherished him.  Cullen is in search of something he knows Esther must know about.  Problem is he brought danger close behind him and as he and Esther try to decipher the clues her father left he realizes there may be a bigger prize than a diamond.
I liked Cullen a lot.  The accent gets to me even if it was all on paper!  Esther was a great character as well.  She was so wrapped up in her life and the fact that nothing significant ever happened until Cullen showed up and everything began to happen.  I did guess what was going to happen toward the end but the storyline was still good.
I rate this one a 4/5.  I want to read more from this author.
