Fatal Wedding Day 9: Sam's Ring

When Nick proposes to Sam *in Fatal Justice* he gives her a diamond engagement ring. Of course, Sam being Sam, she is immediately concerned about whether he will understand if she doesn't wear it to work. So we've given you a few choices here that we think suit Sam's busy life. Nick being Nick, he will want to see that diamond on her finger once in a while, so I will let you chose what her ring will look like!

Sam's Ring 1



Sam's Ring 2



Sam's Ring 3

So b/c I am a child and want to sway things my way...I have stolen this section of dialogue from the proposal :)

“I can’t wear that to work,” she said as he slid it on her trembling finger.

Smiling, he said, “I wouldn’t expect you to. But you will wear the other one after you say ‘I do,’ you got me? I want the whole world to know you’re taken.”


With that in mind, despite the fact that I LOVE #2, I just can't see Sam wearing that to work!

Marie, no kicking me out for trying to rig the voting :) Remember, I am cute and pretty!

Aly,
you are too funny. (and cute and pretty).

Marie Force said...

LOL, Aly! You are funny! And cute and pretty, too!

Dru said...

#1 is simple and I can see Sam wearing that to work.

ShellyE said...

Aly, I was thinking the same thing -- I LOVE #2, but a cop couldn't wear something like that on the job. #3 is just weird, so I have to choose #1 today!!

Hope said...

Aly, you crack me up. I liked your pick but couldn't see Sam wearing that to work, had to go with a different one.

jackie said...

#1 is perfect for work - and it's beautiful!!!! Wish those were in style when I was married!

Bex said...

I am so torn between the one *I* would love and the one that seems to scream *Sam* at me. Simple elegance seems to say Sam so that's how I'll end up voting. This has been such fun! I can't wait to see what wins out!!

Vivi said...

I love #1. It will be perfect for Sam.

Cindy L said...

#2 would have been perfect if it had a separate wedding band to go with it. Then she could take the engagement ring off and wear just the band to work.

Jamie Lynn said...

Oh how i love sparkly things! While #2 is just fabulous, I dont think Sam could wear it at work. I'm going with #1 on this one.

Crystal said...

Aly you crack me up. I agree with you though I couldn't see Sam her wearing #2 to work. :)

Jolene Allcock and Family said...

They are all so pretty and sparkly, how to choose how to choose?? Aly, you may have swayed my decision, I haven't read the books and you know what Sam would want. Gotta give the girl a ring she wants

Amy in sunny CA said...

Love Love Love #1 !!

However, I love the elegance and simplicity of #1, so I voted for it.

BUT - there is nothing wrong with TWO rings, right?!?!? an "everyday" ring and an "evening out" ring ?!?!

Just a thought . . .

Amy in sunny CA said...

oops - should have said

Love Love Love #2

aarrgghhh (too early, need coffee)

flchen1 said...

#1. They're all gorgeous, but the others are a little... foofy.

Sarah said...

Decisions...decisions. Loved them all!

Nicole Dennis said...

Considering Sam's job and I have a feeling so would Nick being the gentleman he is.. I love the brilliance of the other rings.. but I had to go with Ring #1. It's gorgeous, but close to her finger that it won't get in the way of her job.

Corrina said...

I picked #2 thinking it would be a a matching set. Nick did give her a big squared ring! I just assumed it was that, lol....

Jackie The Puggle said...

I like number one. One is simple yet elegant. Nice and understated and easy to hide under a pair of gloves.

I have a big ring and latex gloves rip on the corners of my ring. Something to think about for someone who might have to process a murder scene.

Alison said...

I have to go with #1...I think its the only one Sam would realistically wear to work. However...I personally love love love #3!

bluestocking87 said...

I loved all the three.But I think the third one was the best.

And thank you for giving all of us a chance to win the book.I hope I am the lucky one!

All the best.

Stacey said...

Since she got some serious bling for an engagement, I think #1 is enough bling for "everyday" wear.

Kara C said...

Definitely not #2 for Sam. Just my opinion, of course. And, no, Aly did not pay me to say that. Much.

Petra said...

#1, the others just aren't Sam.

Danielle Gorman said...

I am loving the first one. Not to gaudy and elegant.

Miriam said...

While both 2&3 are gorgeous, I think #1 is the perfect option for Sam. Although I wouldn't turn down any of them for myself as I don't have the same aversion to ultra bling...

Jeana said...

I go with number 1 because it is simple yet classy and won't get caught on much...it's something a cop could wear to work..not a construction worker but since Sam's not a construction worker we're good. lol

Angela said...

#1 would be very pretty with a gorgeous solitaire, so that's what I'll vote for.

Kelly M said...

#2.... so pretty...

Tara said...

Again, such great options. And, Aly, you helped me make my decision so thanks.

Blodeuedd said...

So hard, I mean 3 is lovely ;) But going with 1

Mary G said...

Beautiful choices but I'm going with #1.

Mary G said...

Unless #2 is two pieces and she just wears the band to work.

dustmuffin said...

I love #2 I know its not pracical but its so pretty

Donna said...

Number 1 is gorgeous and she can wear it to work without any problems. It will look lovely witht her diamond when she goes out. Love it.

Rachel said...

I feel like Sam would prefer ring number 1. It just seems classy and yet no nonsense as well.

Johanna R Jochum said...

I loved number 1 or 3 but I voted for number 1 because it is simple and elegant and just beautiful!

wantbaby said...

Like Aly...I remember very well the conversation between Sam and Nick about the engagement ring. So this was an easy decision.

Alexa said...

love #3, but it's not for me! So I say #1 for work. It's simple, but elegant.

Kay said...

Definitely #1. Elegant, gorgeous and easy to wear on a job that requires lots of activity, it won't snag on anything.

Monika Michalak said...

I love #1 & #3. Did she have an engagement ring?

I still love my engagement ring after 25 years and would still pick the same one.

Knitsy said...

I am all about #1!. It's more Sam!

windwarning said...

I agree with Aly #2 is just WOW but, I think #1 is much more Sam friendly.

oklanannie said...

I think #1 will suit Sam perfectly. Simple, elegant and won't cause a problem in carrying out her duties on the job!!

Such fun -- can't wait to see the total package in September!!!

Louise said...

#1 is full of glam for Nick but workable for Sam. Definite winner! Too bad Sam doesn't like glam, since that rhymes.
