The Shimmering Stones (Candlelight Mystery Ser., No. 119) Mass Market Paperback – 1973 by Maryann Young (Author)
Lovely young Marty Crawford came to the Golf Coast town of Fullerton to forget a painfully broken engagement. A job at the new museum there seemed to promise the peace she desperately needed. Instead Marty found fresh turmoil in the person of handsome, dedicated Keith Lawson, who snarled at her one minute and smiled at her the next. To confuse matters further she met wheeler-dealer Alec Peters, who made her head spin with expensive champagne, and her senses whirl with tender kisses in the moonlight. Who was the man for her? The answer lay in a handful of precious stones that one of them might have stolen - a tantalizing trail of glittering clues that Marty had to follow through a dark labyrinth of mystery and danger!
