Mystery with a splash of romance…Chicago Tribune reporters Emma and Grace have been best friends since college despite coming from different worlds. When Grace is assigned to cover an annual charity ball and auction being held at a lakeside mansion and her boyfriend bails on her, she brings Emma as her plus one. The night is going smoothly until Emma finds the host’s brother unconscious in the study. Though at first it is thought he was tipsy and stumbled, it soon becomes clear more is afoot, as the wall safe is empty and a three-million-dollar diamond necklace is missing. With visions of becoming ace investigative journalists, Emma and Grace set out to solve the mystery, much to the chagrin of the handsome local detective.

The Great Jewel Robbery is the beginning of Elizabeth McKenna’s series, A Front Page Mystery. This is my first introduction to Miss McKenna’s writing. It definitely will not be the last for me. In this book, the reader is introduced to best friends since childhood and now Chicago Tribune reporters, Emma and Grace. Grace is set to work at yearly auction and charity ball. She invites Emma to join her. While at the mansion where the event is held, Emma stumbles across an unconscious man inside. What once thought to be a simple passed out drunk, turns out to be something more! The wall safe is emptied, including a diamond necklace worth three million dollars. The two best friends quickly start their investigation of what happened and where the necklace has gone.
I really enjoyed The Great Jewel Robbery. This is a fun and delightful cozy mystery. I was caught up in the suspense and mystery along with Emma and Grace. I never knew where the two would end up next. I had no problem what so ever continuing to read until the end. I had it read in just a few short hours. It was fun getting to know the two friends and enjoyed their bond. Such a beautiful and special friendship.
I am giving The Great Jewel Robbery a well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy a quick cozy mystery. I look forward to the next installment from A Front Page Mystery series.
