‘The perfect read for a cosy winter’s evening beside a crackling log fire’ Sussex Life

Diamonds are forever.

And hold a thousand secrets…

When Grace Manners moves to a little cottage on the Wittering Manor estate, she hopes it will be the perfect new beginning after her life was torn apart seven months ago.

Ever since her husband disappeared, along with most of their money, Grace has struggled to make ends meet – but now, working for the eccentric Fraser Stratton, she has her own space to make her delicate jewellery once again.

Yet as Grace begins to uncover the story behind a beautiful diamond brooch, she becomes drawn into a mysterious family secret that threatens to destroy what little she has left…
