That love affair includes enjoyment as well as maliciousness. Catherine McGreevy blends the eternal love of and quest for jewels with fascinating characters in her entertaining romantic mystery, The Jewelry Case. Set in rural Northern California, Ms. McGreevy brings us a small community of realistically portrayed people. Readers will enjoy these colorful people familiar as friends, relatives, and acquaintances of everyday life. Underlying a story of relationships is the mystery of finding jewels of European royalty, children fleeing the holocaust, inheritance greed, murderous theft and romance. The author blends all these aspects together in a well-written, readable story appropriate for all ages of romantic mystery readers. Young opera singer, Paisley Perleman, inherits a charming but run-down house in River Bend, a small town in the delta area of California near Sacramento. Her loss of husband and voice in an auto accident left her bereft of a meaningful future. A used-bookstore owner befriends Paisley and pulls her into helping produce a local, amateur musical. A winery owner, a handyman, and an ex-marine, real estate agent provide dramatic and romantic conflicts in Paisley’s new life. Paisley discovers she has inherited jewelry originally owned by Polish royalty. The jewels were smuggled out of Poland by a Jewish child escaping the holocaust. She also discovers multiple people are searching and contending for these mysterious jewels. Paisley becomes involved in the community and intensifies her own search for the jewels. At the same time a variety of conflicting conspiracies emerge that complicate Paisley’s need to find a satisfying life. The author skillfully overcomes an issue that many readers find annoying in romantic and cozy novels: inclusion of detail and characters that are superfluous to the drama of the story. Ms. McGreevy skillfully includes people and detail that are interesting and colorful and are necessary adjuncts to the development of the story. A dramatic and exciting ending with complications of malice, murder, friendship, romance and family relationships provide ‘page turning’ reading at the conclusion of the novel. This well-written book will be appreciated by readers of mystery, thriller, and romance novels.

    Low 3 star I liked the main character, but the book would benefit from another going over. It has a number of repetitive passages where we're told the same info similarly multiple times as if it is new. A few spots it is a bit contradictory--she should X but she did it 2 days ago, etc. Feels more like womens fiction with suspense overtones than a true mystery to me.

    I enjoyed reading The Jewelry Case. It is defently a light and easy to read book, but the plot development kept my interest and had several unexpected twists. My biggest complaint was that the author tended to repeat explanations and conversations at times.
