I was searching again and came across the book Joy by Jayne Ann Krentz. This is an early book of hers and I went to pick it up. I love her writing and style of characters. This is a wonderful romance novel with mystery built within the plot.
The Plot of Joy:
“Virginia Middlebrook and A.C. Ryerson had both been burned in painful marriages. Neither had any desire to relive the past-they’d take things slow. A Caribbean trip seemed like the perfect way to test the waters of a new relationship…until A.C. wins a breathtaking emerald bracelet with a mysterious past. Suddenly their days-and nights-become a reckless roller coaster of adventure, desire…and deadly peril.”
I loved this book with the mystery of the bracelet and the simplicity and complex of the characters. A.C. Ryerson was involved with Debby the younger sister but he knew that nothing would happen. He winds up meeting the older sister and knew at that moment this was going to be the woman for him. I loved that he switched from one sister to another.
Joy had intrigue and suspense with a wonderful romance story.
