Some secrets are worth keeping. Others are not.
When Lars Hendriks arranges to meet Marit Jansen in Vienna, he is hoping their friendship will blossom into romance. What he doesn’t expect is a surprise visit from his cousin Cole or the loose diamonds he brings with him.
As a CIA operative, Cole Bridger is used to uncertainty, but when his work takes him back to Vienna, he looks forward to reconnecting with Isabelle Roberts, the fellow agent he dated briefly before duty took him away from Austria. Unfortunately, his silence over the last few months has created a chasm that he can’t cross without help. He barely takes a step toward repairing the damaged relationship when a brazen jewel heist seemingly links Cole, Lars, Marit, and Isabelle to the crime. The group is drawn into a deadly mystery, and once again, the treasures of Falcon Point are threatened. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they have stumbled upon something far bigger and more dangerous than a simple robbery. And someone on the inside knows it.

The Danger with Diamonds is book one in the Falcon Point Suspense series. This book is written by Traci Hunter Abramson and Sian Ann Bessey. The characters were previously introduced in a book called The Heirs off Falcon Point, which I have not read but did not affect the story at all. The authors did a good job creating a lot of backstory within the book so that you do not feel left out. I loved this book and did not want to put it down. There is a lot of action and suspense throughout the whole book.
Cole is a CIA operative. He had previously been dating Isabelle. However, with the nature of his work he felt it was going to be hard (and he is just stubborn) to be trying to date long distance. Isabelle works at a bank. She monitors accounts that have suspicious activity on them. Lars is Cole's cousin. He made me laugh alot. Marit is a model and Lars girlfriend. I really liked the 4 of these characters. Cole finds a bag of diamonds while on an investigation. He brings it to the bank and they place them in the safe deposit box along with other Falcon Point jewelry pieces. However, the bad guys that they took these diamonds from, want them back and will stop at anything to do so.
The story has four different point of views, but the authors blend it together seamlessly. The book is set in Europe and I felt I learned a lot about the area and culture. I cannot wait to read the next book. This book will have your heart pounding the whole time.
