Book Description

Carats and Coconuts by D. D. Scott

The Indie Book of the Day for 15th of November, 2012!

Genre: Humor, Mystery

There’s crazy.

Then there’s a cut above crazy.

And when your parents are two of the world’s top gemologists, you not only learn to deal with cuts – brilliant, baguette, briolette and the list goes on – but you also get damn good at dealin’ with the crazies that those cuts bring into your life. And by crazies, think the smugglers and thieves who transport gems around the globe.

So yeah, as you can imagine, Zoey Witherspoon’s life has been anything but Mayberry. And she doesn’t see that changing anytime soon.

As a Designer and Stylist to The Stars, a fairly new PI, and now the Princess of Caserta, she’s got one crazy-packed resume. As if that’s not enough, she’s also the daughter of George and Suzie Witherspoon of Witherspoon & Witherspoon, the world’s premiere gem vault and lapidary.

The world can’t responsibly deal with the kinds of wealth her parents cut from rocks. The gem trade breeds its own kind of terror. And Zoey’s about to put an end to it…or at least the part of it she knows how to stop. Unless the smugglers stop her first.
