“A delightful [series] – it will enchant you with exotic places and interesting characters.” -- Linda Osborn, 5-star review
After months of unemployment, her bank account dwindling, Ainsley Walker is starting to wonder if her career as a gemstone detective will ever take off.
Her life changes when she accepts an offer from a handsome importer to travel to the country of Portugal—the gorgeous but overlooked jewel of Western Europe—to search for a sapphire azulejo that has been stolen from an historic chapel.
On her fast-paced adventure, Ainsley explores thieves’ fairs, antique trams, ancient Roman ruins, and the dangerous roads of rural wine valleys. She finds joy, pain, friendship, duplicity, and murder—and, most importantly, a renewed sense of purpose in life.
From an author who worked on the foreign desk of The Washington Post--
--comes a travel adventure that will change the way you see your life.
Fifth in the series.
