Diamond Sky (Porter Sisters Book 3) Kindle Edition
"Everything about this book was spot on - great pacing, lots of action, a good mystery, two tough, yet lonely and vulnerable main protagonists, interesting and sometimes chilling secondary characters, and a realistic romance that develops throughout the novel. The ending is heartwarming." Goordreads
"As always with an Annie Seaton book, the landscape is an important element, almost a character in its own right, and evoked in all its heat and dust and dangerous wildlife, and the stupendous beauty of the Australian outback." Goodreads
Evocative descriptions, engaging characters and edge-of-your-seat suspense, this outback romance will keep you turning pages. Goodreads
"There's nothing like an Annie Seaton novel to curl up with and lose yourself in the world she creates, loved it" Goodreads
"Once again Aussie author Annie Seaton has nailed it with the third in the Porter Sisters series, Diamond Sky. What an intense, gripping, edge of my seat experience that was! I absolutely loved it and feel it's the author's best yet - the tension and fast-paced action was full on; my heart was in my throat a few times! Highly recommended." Goodreads
"Diamond Sky offers the reader a fantastic array of genres. In some respects this novel reads mostly like a romantic suspense novel, but it also touches on crime and overall, it is a solid Australian rural fiction offering. Seaton sensitively and informatively weaves a thread into this novel involving indigenous land rights. The use of the mine site character of Rocky, a local indigenous man, adds more to this aspect of the story. I found this topic very interesting personally, especially learning how mine sites do aim to work with the traditional owners of the land, to restore a mine site to its original condition. Dru, the main character in Diamond Sky has a fascinating job, working as an environmental based engineer, who is involved in this process of restoring mine sites to their former glory, ensuring the land remains as uncompromised as possible. Kudos to Seaton from bringing this aspect of mining our attention.
Dru, the lead in Diamond Sky, was an interesting character to sink your teeth into. On the outset she is very distant and I could very easily see why she was labelled the 'ice queen' by the workers at the male dominated mine site. Once you get past this barrier and Seaton reveals key aspects of Dru's character, especially her past history in Dubai, she becomes much clearer. The aspects of the novel that delved into Dru's experiences living and working in Dubai were the parts I enjoyed the most. This back story was a mixture of both heartbreaking and intriguing at the same time. I thought this aspect of the narrative was executed well by Seaton. I absolutely loved the setting of Diamond Sky. Currently the north of Western Australia, the Kimberley, where the bulk of the action of this novel is set, seems much more appealing than here in the cold capital of WA. The warm weather, along with the stunning scenery in the Kimberley, complete with rugged ranges and huge gorges, would be a wonderful place to visit. I would love to see an actual mine site in this region in operation and Diamond Sky offers the reader the closest way to do this - through reading this novel. Seaton treats the setting aspect of her novel with the insight and respect it deserves. Diamond Sky is not entirely set in the Kimberley, the narrative moves as the mystery and action aspect of the novel demands to be solved. We also get a glimpse of life in Dubai and Antwerp in these areas of the narrative, which I did enjoy. The mystery and crime aspect of the novel is closed off well, but the process to get this end was far from predictable, which was great." Mrs Bs book reviews.

There are diamonds being stolen from the mines. They can be upwards of a million dollars each so this is no trivial matter. Conner is hired to investigate and find out how someone can get the diamonds out of the station with all of the security cameras they have set up. Whenever anyone leaves the mine their vehicle is search as well as their bodies. Some have to strip to their underwear some just a pat down. It is determined by how the wheel spins.
Conner is almost sure he knows who the thieves are but he has no proof, so he sets out to find the proof he needs to have them arrested.
Dru is an engineer. She is 6' tall, blond and very beautiful. She towers over most men but not Conner. They start out as enemies but as events happen they change their minds. Dru is suspected to be one of the thieves. The diamonds have shown up in another country and she came from that country to the mines. No one knows anything of her background. She stays pretty much to herself and does her job. Dru actually has quite a background and her life has not been an easy one. She is running scared and always looking over her shoulder. She trust no one. She does work with the local people and her job is to replenish the grounds and put the land back to what it was before the mines came in. It is to be exactly as they found it minus the diamonds.
This story has a lot of Australia in it. I found that to be very interesting. I would love to visit, minus the bugs and snakes!! There aren't any snakes in this story, just the mention of them :-) There is a lot about mining for diamonds. I had no idea it was so involved. It doesn't take over the story but instead just feeds you information along with the story. I loved this story and HIGHLY recommend it. It is a great read and you learn something along the way. The romance is a great one as well. They slowly fall for one another. No instant love and hit the sheets. It is hard to put down once you start to read. I was up until 2 a.m. reading. I just had to finish it. Lots of bad guys, but justice prevails. Great read.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 4/15/2020
