Praise for The Jewel Thief

“Mobley crafts her own Hope Diamond legend, one filled with romance and intrigue . . .  Mobley’s account of diamond cutting is fascinating, and her attention to the political and social tensions of the time, particularly the treatment of Jews in 17th-century France, adds a pointed layer of consequence to the novel.”–Publishers Weekly

“Mobley skillfully combines real events and people with a fictional teen protagonist forced to make her thief’s confession to her horrified true love. The romance inherent in diamonds and royalty is enhanced by the young lovers’ story, and is also augmented by a (multicultural) plot thread involving the Jewish jewelers, who were notoriously badly treated in Europe at that time (the 1600s).”–Booklist

“Juliette emerges as a realistically flawed heroine . . . A winding tale of jewelry-based intrigue.”–Kirkus Reviews

“The mystery at the heart of this book maneuvers deftly between the intrigue and deception of the Sun King’s court, an aching romance, and the lengths we will go for those we love. I couldn’t put it down!”–Andrea Robertson, New York Times bestselling author

“Set among the splendors and intrigues of the Baroque court, The Jewel Thief is a gripping tale of a bold young craftswoman determined to carve out her own glorious destiny.”–Elizabeth Bunce, Morris Award-winning author of A Curse Dark as Gold
