Romance Book Review: Lisa Hughey's Stone Cold Heart
Author: Lisa Hughey
Series Connection: Family Stone
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Purchase Link: Amazon
The beginning of a new series starts with novella, Stone Cold Heart, great title that give the reader that there is a lot of live up to. The book introduces Jack Stone, the oldest brother who starts a business to bring his siblings together. The siblings include his younger step sister Jess. Jess never felt completely like one of the family. After deciding she needed to leave her job with the FBI as an assassin, she goes to work for her older brother humanitarian aid company.
On her first mission she hooks up with an old lover she never expected to see again as well as realizes that this job may not be as much of a change from her old job as she thought.
Was hoping for a little more action and suspense, but I'd be willing to check out the next books in the series to see what the author has in store for the rest of the Stone family.
Jess Stone, former FBI sniper, always felt like the kid who looks in the candy store window but could never afford to go in. But on a humanitarian mission to aid an earthquake ravaged country, finally she finds a place where she fits, in Colin Davies' arms, and working for Global Humanitarian Relief, her big brother's company. But can the former SAS thaw Jess's stone cold heart?
