Deadly Diamonds by Denise Rodgers

indie ebook cover

What do you do when your husband leaves you for a "scruples-free, low-life tart" who looks a lot more like your old Barbie doll than you do? If you're Bella Blumer, you complain to every friend, relative and customer that has at least one working ear to their name. And if you do this for a year, and your ex shows up dead on the anniversary of your divorce? Well, chances are, even if you are innocent (of murder, anyway), the world will assume you're guilty. With no time to spare, jewelry designer and store owner Bella must deal with the local detective who used to be her secret crush in junior high, a mother who is determined to fix her up with a nice young man (anyone under sixty qualifies), a love-crazed suitor (one of her mother's fine choices), one lawyer who thinks she's guilty and another who's ready to get serious – all while working like crazy to clear her name.

About The Author...

indie author

Denise Rodgers


Denise Rodgers spent the first twenty-eight years of her life working in the family jewelry business in Metro Detroit, followed by another more than twenty-something years running a home-based advertising company that catered to (you guessed it!) jewelers around the country. At the same time, she wrote and published two poetry books and a website of funny children’s poetry. Many of her poems have also been published in anthologies and text books around the globe. Rodgers' most recent work, a funny murder mystery novel featuring outspoken woman sleuth Bella Blumer, takes place in a jewelry store in Royal Oak, a suburb of Detroit. A second and third Jeweltown Murder Mystery cozy are on the way.

While Denise shares many traits with her main character, Bella Blumer, this book is in no way autobiographical. (And Bella Blumer’s mother is not you, Mom. I promise.) These days she divides her time, crunching numbers for the family wood veneer business and writing. She lives in Metro Detroit (near, but not in Royal Oak) with her husband and two small dogs. She has two grown sons, two wonderful daughter-in-laws, two amazing grandsons, and two more grandchildren (sex not yet specified) on the way.
