Review: Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews

Book Description

Nevada Frida Baylor and Connor Ander Rogan cordially invite you to join their wedding celebration. Summoning, weather manipulation, and other magical activities strictly forbidden.

Catalina Baylor is looking forward to wearing her maid of honor dress and watching her older sister walk down the aisle.  Then the wedding planner gets escorted off the premises, the bride’s priceless tiara disappears, and Rogan's extensive family overruns his mother’s home.  Someone is cheating, someone is lying, and someone is plotting murder.

To make this wedding happen, Catalina will have to do the thing she fears most: use her magic.  But she’s a Baylor and there’s nothing she wouldn't do for her sister's happiness.  Nevada will have her fairy tale wedding, even if Catalina has to tear the mansion apart brick by brick to get it done.

My Review

I've never read this author before but a blogger buddy sent this book to me and I thought, why the heck not. I read series out of order all the time and this is a quick read, it should be fine. 

First of all let me tell you that I did feel a little lost because I haven't read this series so I really didn't know who these characters were but I still read it. 

Nevada is getting married and her sister, Catalina has to step in to make sure things go as planned and see if she can fix things that might make this a bad day. The groom's mother wants Catalina to locate a tiara she wants Nevada to wear at her wedding. But in order to find the missing tiara, Catalina will have to use her magic which she doesn't use because she's scared to. 

There's quite a few interesting characters in this novella and I thought the story moved quite well for such a quick read. Now I'm gonna have to start this series and find out more about these characters. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
