Romantic Suspense

Washington, DC Area

Grace Sinclair lives her life just the way she wants to. She's Special Agent Sinclair, the FBI's top profiler, and also Grace Sinclair, award winning author of three books of fiction. Her love life? A series of one-night-stands. She wants no complications using up useless time and energy. During an awards ceremony for her latest novel, she's called to a crime scene in Maryland. Her boss sends a new agent to pick her up . . . did I say she wants no complications?

New FBI Special Agent Gavin Walker spent time in military intelligence before his ten years as a detective in Washington's Metro PD. Two years ago, he spent one glorious night in bed with Grace before being totally brushed off by her. This will be a momentous meeting between the two . . . and not just because of memories.

A woman has been killed by a sniper, the first of a series of murders of young women. Grace is the first to connect them, and gradually the team realizes they all resemble Grace herself.

SUCH A PRETTY GIRL not only keeps up the suspense with the mystery, but also with the relationship between Grace and Gavin—why is she so anti-commitment?—as well as the rest of the cast of finely drawn characters. It's definitely a case of turning page after page while not wanting to put the book down.

SUCH A PRETTY GIRL is only Ms. Diamond's second book. It follows her DANGEROUS GAMES debut, next on my to-be-read-for-pleasure books.
