4.5 Stars

The three Diamond sisters survived the summer in style after coming to live with their long-lost billionaire father. But making a place for themselves at their exclusive new Las Vegas private school is throwing them any number of gold-plated curves. Savannah’s YouTube stardom turns into a Sweet Sixteen reality show extravaganza—with complimentary enemies on the side.

Dangerous flirtations don’t keep Peyton from a gamble that will risk far more than she planned to bet. And when Courtney and the sisters’ archenemy, Madison, uncover two explosive secrets, it will rock even this town of glittering illusion—and turn their lives upside down all over again.

Sisterhood, first crushes, and scandalous secrets explode in book two of Michelle Madow’s riveting series, The Secret Diamond Sisters.


If I thought The Secret Diamond Sisters was good, this second installment in the series is way more than I bargained for. Michelle is right when she points out that our feelings of a few characters will change while reading Diamonds in the Rough, at least they did for me.

A few secrets are revealed, but there are still more to uncover. Those secrets that are revealed though…definitely plays with your emotions and the reader can’t help but feel saddened about certain situations.

The mystery is still there and the cliff-hanger… Why?! Why leave us hanging like that? Just no, no, no. I hope everything is okay in the third book or I will cry a lot and I won’t know what to do with my life.

Michelle has done a fantastic job with this series. I hadn’t picked this series up before because, even though the cover is beautiful and eye-catching, I thought it was going to be a stuck-up book. But I saw a lot of hype so I figured I would give it a shot and I am so glad I did because it is different, it is refreshing and a new kind of story readers will adore.
