She Thought She Was Leaving the Rat Race Behind. Gemologist Andie Adams is suffering a bad case of burnout in her stress-filled job in New York. So she jumps at the chance to ditch her wormy corner of the Big Apple for a home in Kentucky with her lovable but off-the-wall Aunt Weeby. After all, things should be slower paced in Kentucky--right?Wrong. Andie reluctantly joins the Shop-Til-U-Drop Network as its newest jewelry and gemstone show host. Sparks fly between her and the know-nothing (but drop-dead gorgeous) jock they've hired as her cohost. And when Andie's job exposes her to a international investigation, the mayhem escalates during an exotic journey.

Gemologist Andrea Adams is suffering a bad case of burnout at her plum job in the New York Diamond District. So she swaps the Big Apple for Louisville, Kentucky, and joins the S.T.U.D. television shopping network as its newest host. When she's paired up with a hunky but clueless Ken doll of a cohost, Andrea wonders if she made the right move. Top it all off with foul play, a trip to Myanmar, and lots and lots of rubies, and you've got a story any woman would like to read. This exciting and fast-paced novel kicks off Ginny Aiken's Shop-Til-U-Drop Collection.

MargotSouth AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Quite UnusualAugust 13, 2014MargotSouth AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I guess variety is the spice of life. That's probably why I finished this book. I found it difficult to cope with the first-person-present-tense writing style, and the very colloquial side comments to the reader outside of the story line. It all took a bit of getting used to. Some of the characters were quite likable, especially Aunt Weebie, and Miss Mona, but the whole thing seemed fairly far-fetched and, for me, the main character, Andie, didn't exude warmth or likability. There was a hint of romance, although I don't know how when Andie only ever expressed contempt for Max.
Technically, it was the first ebook I'd had any real issues with, with lots of strangely placed line breaks and strange arrangements of conversational quotes.
Although the story didn't finish in this book, I won't be rushing to finish the series.

This book was light-hearted and funny. I am not sure whether I liked that she didn't include any other person's viewpoint besides the main character. It was written in the first person format, which put an interesting spin into the story.

I found the dialogue and content to be very realistic situations. This was not your typical: boy meets girl, they're enemies that fall in love. etc. The combination of mystery and potential romance makes for an interesting read.
