Quin is tracking diamond thieves that have been killing the staff members, once they rob the jewelry store. Nia is finishing up right before closing when Quin walks in, just ahead of the thieves, and saves her life.

Nia finds herself attracted to the FBI agent, even though Quin and his partner haven’t quite ruled her out as being a member of the gang. Once Nia is no longer under suspicion, she and Quin eventually act on their attraction to each other. They do their best to try to keep it casual, though that proves to be hard to do.

Hearts and Diamonds is a suspense story with some predictable twists. The thieves the FBI is tracking are a very sophisticated ring that has no qualms about killing witnesses. A lot of the storyline could be taken from any newspaper where jewelry stores are robbed and ruling out participation by employees of the theft is part and parcel of the investigation. The secondary characters are given cursory mention and I would have liked to learn a little more about a few of them.
