About the Book
Penelope Hunter loves her job as the events manager at one of Savannah’s premier historic venues–until her ex-fiancé walks into her office with his new bride-to-be. To make matters worse, a scheming social matriarch is intent on seeing Penelope fired, especially if she insists on being seen with Tucker Westbrook.
Since returning from serving two tours in the Middle East, Tucker has built a thriving security company. His work is nearly as stabilizing as his friendship with Penelope, who has been by his side since childhood. But when the lone candidate for county sheriff goads him, Tucker loses his cool and ends up on the ballot–and on the receiving end of a smear campaign claiming the Westbrooks were traitors to the South.
To clear his name, Tucker and Penelope must join forces to find the truth behind a 150-year-old lost treasure. But the more time they spend together, the closer she comes to losing her job–and falling helplessly in love.

In My Opinion
Liz Johnson rounds out her Georgia Coast Romance series with best friends Penelope (PJ) and Tucker. Their story starts off with an arrangement of convenience but as these friends embark on the façade, they acknowledge deeper feelings for each other (at least to themselves) while concern over ruining their friendship lingers.
There is a bit of mystery throughout the book as this duo digs through Tucker’s family history to find out whether his family truly were traitors. At times, their discoveries come quickly and conveniently.
But, at least for me, the growing relationship, the inclusion of Penelope’s ex-fiancé, and the setting of Savannah, GA are what made A Dazzle of Diamonds shine.
