Gems speak to jewelry designer Gemma Hewitt. After her mother is murdered, Gemma inherits her jeweled collar. Trying it on, she's thrown back to 1901 India where a young woman wears a pendant that matches her collar. Hired to find the entire bridal suite, she hopes the jewels will save her family's fortune. Can she trust the handsome, enigmatic British reporter/photographer Raj Sinclair, or is he the one she should be running from? The treasure hunt ends in India where the bridal suite is finally rejoined... and three reincarnated souls get a chance to change destiny.
Reviewer: Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for using twisting fascinating tales with unique elements that grab readers attention and keep them absorbed with the mystique and romance of her captivating characters and Eyes of the Tiger certainly holds readers hostage until the very end and to me it had a quest or treasure hunt feel to the story that really pulled me along and made feel as if I was joining Gemma and Raj on their adventure.

Eyes of the Tiger by Patricia Rosemoor is a compelling new novel featuring history, reincarnation, karma, and enduring love. She does a fabulous job with it. Gemma Hewitt is the daughter of wealthy parents but she works for a living: she designs exquisite custom jewelry, usually gaining inspiration from a historical piece she has managed to find. Right now she is trying to figure out who murdered her mother and why. She has just finished working an open house party for invited guests and a very expensive townhouse in Manhattan. A man, Raj Sinclair, walks up to her and makes contact. She is moved by him, but has to work. He continues to watch her. As she had been dressing, she decided to pull out a necklace of her mother's; the one she had been wearing the night she was killed. In the box was an address for a fortuneteller at Coney Island. This is a lead she feels she must pursue. Raj follows her and is able to fight off an attack made upon her outside the storefront she had just visited. The woman gave her a ring, one that matched the necklace. They both give off weird vibes, and later that night led her into a vision of a young Indian woman, 100 years before, named Mayura. Thus began a strange journey to find the other pieces of the ''wedding suite," which was the set of jewelry a wealthy Indian woman would wear on her wedding day. She felt the compulsion to find the other pieces of the suite to continue uncovering the story. Meanwhile, Raj has returned to his hotel and reread part of a journal, which was a family heirloom that told another part of the story. His bookmark was another part of the suite of jewelry, although he saw nothing when he touched it. This was a remarkable story, full of history and Indian culture as well as a passable investigation. It was a love story that had taken over 100 years to play out, and a scheming murder that had been pursuing it for 100 years as well. There were some interesting characters, and many two-dimensional characters that were in and out of the story quickly. It was a wonderful example of a quest to solve an issue for a family, prejudice, and the idiocy brought on by pursuing wealth too vigorously. Gemma and Raj were meant to be together and they learned that along the way. Raj's grandfather held right rein over his children and grandchildren and made certain they did the right thing. It was a story beyond enjoyable. I was invited to read a free e-ARC of Eyes of the Tiger by Tule Publishing Group, through Netgalley.

Another great read from the talented Patricia Rosemoor She always manages to instill so many aspects into her stories This is the perfect combination of suspense, drama and intrigue with a great romance thrown in Raj and Gemma have a connection as Gemma tries to solve who murdered her mother Throw in the flashbacks to imperial India and you have a story that keeps you Involved Of I have any criticism it is the multiple points of view are very distracting
