1st LIne Friday- Feat. The Great Jewel Robbery by Elizabeth McKenna- I Read Book Tours

Welcome to 1st line Friday 
Where I spotlight a book that I am reading.  Here's today's feature
The Great Jewel Robbery by Elizabeth McKenna

Here's the first few lines . . . 
The handsome stranger held the mini-mart door open for me, and I gazed up into twinkling , meadow-green eyes.  I kid you not.  I had read about twinkling eyes in more than on romance book. 

And on page 56 . . . 
The last line of chapter 7 . . . I wouldn't bet my life on it, but I was pretty sure one of his shamrock-colored eyes winked at me.

About the book 
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.

And I am thinking
And now I am page 79  and I can't turn the pages fast enough.  I am loving the characters.  Crime is a foot and then there's that maybe romance.  I am having to refrain from reading the end.
Do you do that?
