    Read for the BJ book club. Loved the book & conversation both. Sweet, spicy, perfect small town historical romance. Because it's BJ, you learn some history they missed in school as well.Highly recommended.

    It always sucks to read an author who comes with a lot of good press and have reasonably high hopes for a great romance, and then be bored to tears (see Laura Kinsale, Carrie Lofty). I gave up on pg 192 when the banal dialogue, too-numerous typos, and persistent "telling, not showing" made me throw it at the wall.The plot is almost a textbook example of "contrivance." Former dissolute rake and adulterous bottle-baby Eli Grayson has a newspaper that's up to its banner in debt, and GW Hicks, a mag [...]

    As with all of Beverly Jenkins books that I've read (this is now the fourth), what I enjoyed most, and what sets her books apart are the historical details, and the obvious pains she takes to maintain fidelity to time and place. I love that she sprinkles in little factoids about what else was happening in the world at the time, be it the Women's Suffrage Movement, or the rise of Jim Crow. I also enjoy that the romance itself is true to the time -- marriage is viewed as much as an economic and so [...]

    I guess what was disappointing was that Cecile didn't get the kind of just reward that she deserved. Death doesn't seem fair. Other than that, it was long and just okay.

    Jewel was one of Ms. B’s books that I’d never read. I’m not sure why that is since I’ve tried to get my hands on all of her books. And, like every other time, Ms. Jenkins did not disappoint.Returning to Grayson Grove, Michigan—the setting from Vivid—was a great ride for me. I was interested in seeing what happened to the people of the town after Nate Grayson and Vivid Lancaster rode off into the sunset. As always, the scenery descriptions zapped me right into the beautiful town and i [...]

    "nwhytevejournal/1231221ml[return][return]Browsing through LibraryThing one day, I noted that Beverly Jenkins, of whom I had not heard, was one of the highest rated authors by the owners of her books - not many, but enough to reassure me that this was not astroturfing. Her particular subgenre - African-American historical romance - is not one that I had ever considered sampling, but I thought, what the heck, and BookMooched a couple of her books.[return][return]Jewel is actually a rather nice bo [...]

    Something was missing and I couldn't love this book which was hard for me because I normally love BJ's book.

    I really enjoyed the story. The only thing that saddens me is that I did not read the first story in the series first. But I plan on rectifying that mistake very soon. Jewel is a great love story that started out as a charade, turned into an arrange marriage arranged ended as a great love affair. The story provided some intrigue, a murder (or 2) and lots of passion. I can't wait to read more by Beverly Jenkins.

    Jewel: A Good FriendWhat kind of trouble can you get into helping a friend get a job by posing as his wife? Eli asked his family friend Jewel Crowley such a favor

    This was another author I met at the Romance Writers' conference in SF this past summer. I really enjoyed this one, even though I usually hesitate to read historical romances (Judith McNaught notwithstanding). This is definitely the first Black historical romance I have ever come across and I was more than happily surprised by the novel. The problem with writing American history from a Black person's perspective, is that life wasn't too great two hundred years ago. The author chose to set this p [...]

    This was one of those books that I liked but when reading it I was feeling kinda meh, then ooh that's interesting, then back to meh. There was lot's of interesting bits and pieces of history thrown in which I really enjoyed but the characters themselves while not bad were just, not that memorable for me.The book was good technically and I did like the characters, however it wasn't a stand out story, except maybe in the history bits strewn throughout which were as I said interesting to read about [...]

    Absolutely enjoyed this book. Jewel was tough, stern, sassy, witty, and beautiful inside and out. She didn't let anyone get over on her. Eli was every bit of her match, so you can easily see how they were made for each other. Even though he gotten them into the marriage, he took his vows seriously and wooed her inspite of herself. They ended up falling in love with each other. I hated that she went through that situation with Creighton, but Jewel handled herself and him well. I'm glad that Maddi [...]

    I've heard so many great things about Jenkins that I'm frustrated I didn't love this more. It has all the elements--a strong voice, amazing historical inclusion, straight-forward communication about feelings, and a cast of varied characters. The writing, however, never clicked for me. Perhaps it's a facet of Jenkin's style, or if Avon didn't do right by Jenkins, but several things threw me out of the story: the use of periods to end questions; repetitive word choice; long passages that ultimatel [...]

    Mrs. Jenkins once again kept me CAPTIVATED with the townsfolk of Grayson Grove and the intriguing and informative tidbits of historical information. I enjoyed watching Jewel's growth from the innocent girl to the SASSY little wife of the former Colored Cassanova of Cass County. And I am glad Eli turned his life around and did the honorable thing and in doing so found his most TREASURED "jewel", his new wife. The cast of characters as usual were COLORFUL and HIGHLY entertaining. I hope to read mo [...]

    When I first read this, (view spoiler)[I knew the step-sibling connection bothered me. I just didn't realize how much (hide spoiler)]. Now after having read Vivid recently, and actually reading about (view spoiler)[the Abigail (Eli's mum) and Adam Crowley (Jewel's dad) courtship & marriage the whole step-siblings thing still bothers melol. Oh well, it was still a somewhat enjoyable story from what I remember (hide spoiler)]

    Jewel was the 3rd book that I have read by Beverly Jenkins within the last 2 months. I really enjoy her writing style. I loved Vivid and was glad to see that Jewel was a sequel of sorts. I truly enjoy the Grayson cousins. My only problem with this book is that I wish there was more of Cecile. I was hoping her shananigans would have affected the story more. All in all this was a good read. I couldn't put it down. I will read more of Ms. Jenkins in the future.

    Amazing!Me. Jenkins never ceases to amaze me. Her stories are phenomenal. The history lessons are second to none and beyond informative. I'm so glad that she gave Both Eli and Jewel a story of their own. I was also pleased to see Maddie again. Grayson grove has quickly become one of my favorite places to visit.

    Gets better each time I read itYes, I've read Jewel 3x; it's a wonderful story filled with great historical facts. I've learned more reading books by the author then in school.Please return to Grayson Grove and write about the Crowley brothers.

    The storyline went in a different direction that I had originally imagined and the ending, therefore seemed somewhat anticlimatic but overall a good read and one of very few African-American Historical Romance novels.

    Great love story!

    A diamond in the ruffMs Jenkins takes us back to Grayson Grove, where two great families are intertwined . Eli needs a wife for a day, and he finds his diamond in Jewel Crowley

    The thing I like most about most of Jenkins' historicals is that the townspeople have some amount of character in their own right; this one is no exception.

    I am in love with Beverly Jenkins and her writing. SHe is quickly becoming my favorite author!
