Self-professed nerd Maddie Maloney is an expert on jewels. Jewel thieves are another matter entirely! So when a mysterious Englishman warns her that a thief known as The Chameleon is after the rare pink diamond on display in her aunt's shop, she tells herself it's just a joke. Even if she can't get Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome out of her mind....
But Fabian Montgomery doesn't give up easily. He's everywhere she goes, convinced the thief will strike. And when the diamond does go missing - and Maddie is suspected of stealing it - he whisks her away from the police and together they pursue The Chameleon.
Fabian plunges her into a glamorous world far from her humble workshop and transforms geeky Maddie into a sophisticated siren capable of espionage. Her mission: to seduce The Chameleon and steal back the diamond.
But Fabian isn't telling her everything - like who he works for, and why he's so interested in The Chameleon....

yes! the audible version really animates the characters and gives them more color and style.
fun, romance, excitement! everything from the mundane (house cat, bothersome neighbor) to the glamourous (diamonds! yachts! upperclass Brit gentleman!). the main character is smart and she knows it...and beautiful and sexy but she doesn't know it! fun story of her being drawn into things and drawn out of her shell. a very satisfying close to the story.
different personalities evident for each of the characters. the performance really got across a feel for how people are...with each one different. loved the personality used for the main character.
... also did a nice job differentiating the British from the South African accents, which is a challenge!
get it and enjoy it!!
Fangirl. Musical. Geeky. Creative. Romantic. Love comics, reading & writing!
In a way yes. Because at times the story was slow, those are the moments I leave the print versions behind.
How the love story evolved.
I could really hear Maddie thru the narrator's voice and the accents were fun.
I did both, but mostly laughed.
It's a sweet romantic read. I didn't mind it being predictable at parts, because the originality of other just compensated.
