About 
A Beauty Refined:

What does it take to reveal the true beauty of a hidden gem?

Phoebe Von Bergen, the daughter of a German count, is excited to visit America for the first time while her father purchases sapphires in Helena, Montana. Little does she know, however, that her father's intentions---both for her and the gemstones---are not what she thinks.

Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the dignified young woman staying at the Broadwater Hotel more than a little intriguing. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie---a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.

Meeting Ian has changed everything for Phoebe, and she begins to consider staying in America, regardless of her father's plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger that results when her family's deception begins to unravel.

I sure made a big mistake the first time I decided to purchase a set of knives from our local store. Thinking about saving money I bought what I thought would be a nice matching set of knives at a decent price. It didn't take very long to discover that they were a very cheaply made set, they are flimsy and needed constant sharpening. I have used a ceramic paring knife before which I found it to my liking so I decided to try the Passion Gusto CATANA Series  after a friend bought a set and highly recommended it.
