The Rare Jewel of Everleigh Wheaton

Title: The Rare Jewel of Everleigh Wheaton Series: The Treasures of Halstead Manor Author: Susan L. Tuttle Publisher: Kregel Release Date: January 16, 2024 Genre: Women’s Fiction / Romance

In her search for a rare gem, will Everleigh end up uncovering the true treasure of her heart? Personal care nurse Everleigh Wheaton knows it only takes a few well-placed lies to ruin a reputation. She’s experienced it time and time again. But there’s a silver lining to repeatedly proving herself: she’s confident and self-reliant. When she loses yet another job and an enigmatic stranger offers her a potential way out, she’s game. After all, she loves a good mystery, and an invitation to visit the legendary Halstead Manor is irresistible. But she’s not about to let her guard down–especially with the other women who received the same invitation. A strange voice on the phone tells them he’s gathered the three of them to work together as treasure hunters. The first assignment requires Everleigh to be a traveling nurse for retired FBI agent Gertrude Levine, who has one cold case she just can’t let go of: the Florentine diamond that went missing when the Austrian Empire fell. With Everleigh’s keen ability to solve puzzles, Natalie Daughtry’s vast knowledge of history, and Brooke Sumner’s connections to the antiques world, they’re bound to track down the diamond. Except that Gertie’s nephew, Niles Butler, doesn’t trust Everleigh’s innocent act . . . even if he finds himself falling for her. Worse, Everleigh’s walls of self-preservation may doom the entire team. Hints of real-life historical events combined with contemporary characters make this first book in the Treasures of Halstead Manor series a masterful blend of romance, mystery, and strong female friendships. Readers of authors like Denise Hunter and Nicole Deese who enjoy unfolding relationships and the organic discovery of God’s love will relish this new series.

Excerpt

As Everleigh left her second stop, her eyes snagged on a vehicle in her rearview that raised her suspicion. By the time she pulled away from her apartment, that suspicion was confirmed. Someone was following her. The same silver sedan had been on her tail since she’d pulled out of Kroger. If she had her guess, Palmer had sent someone to watch her. Might as well find out if she was right.

Spotting a strip mall ahead anchored by a coffee shop, Everleigh pulled into the lot. She joined the drive-through line and ordered a toffee nut latte—might as well enjoy the excuse for a midday pick-me- up. The sedan had parked at the far side of the lot, providing whoever sat behind the wheel with a perfect view of the exit. The way they’d parked, however, prevented them from seeing the end of the drive-through line.

Everleigh swung around and approached the sedan slowly. If she thought about it too long, common sense could nix her impulse. Instead, she gunned it, parking at an angle with her passenger door practically touching their front bumper. Taking off her sunglasses, she met the surprised gaze of the person who’d been following her.

“You!”

  1. After reading the excerpt, I am wondering about the identity of the person who is following Everleigh. I’m hooked.
