The Mob…A Saudi prince… Assassins…The police…

All chasing Amber Norris because they believe she has the Blue Diamond: a priceless Saudi heirloom that her ex-husband supposedly gave her before he was murdered. On the run with her young daughter, Amber’s only hope for survival is Detective Cody Maguire. But only if she can convince him she didn’t steal the diamond or murder her ex.

Despite the evidence stacked against her, Cody knows Amber is innocent of murder—professional assassins killed her husband—but his instincts tell him she knows more than she’s telling about the jewel. Too bad his heart is telling him something else.

With a bounty on her head and hit men closing in, Amber is running out of time. Can they find the stolen diamond—and their chance at love? Or will Amber’s past destroy them?

What do you do when everyone is SURE you have something that you don't? Something that people would kill to get back.....

This is Amber's story.  Web of Lies has plenty of suspense and action to keep the reader entertained.  An ex makes a surprise visit, then the police, and then the killers.  It's a tough situation for this young mother.

Christina James does a wonderful job keeping up the suspense and the tension.  The first part of the book, I wasn't too thrilled with Cody, the hero.  He seemed very stuffy and plain out rude.  It is a cop's job to get down to the truth, but the way he did things just didn't make him likable at first.

Overall, the story was great and was filled with many twists and turns that I didn't see coming.  If you enjoy romantic suspense, this is a great story to add to your reading pile.
