Festive Task 7
Cold Blood: Nick Stone Thriller 18 - Andy McNab

 

Task 7 

Book themes for Saint Lucia's Day: Read a book set in Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Sweden - and Finland for the purposes of this game) or a book where ice and snow are an important feature.

 

 

Nick Stone is getting recruited to help a group of amputees to go to North Pole. 

 

Ice and snow is the elementary danger beside the guns and fire. 

 

The plot starts with Nick Stone reluctantly drawn into a task that he didn't want in the first place. 

A guy he knew wanted Stone's help to get his son safe when he and a group of amputees tried to go to a hike on the North Pole. 

 

The son Jack was in the military and got his leg blown off shortly after he got into action.

 

Now that Jack and his fellow friends, other amputees would like to get to the North Pole but their sponsor pulled out.

 

Where to get the money is part of the problem.

 

Now they just landed on a place where there are some armed Russians want to get part of the action of oil underneath the ice.

 

The came the father drawing in Rune, a geek that suppose to put equipment on the ice to see if the ice is melting. 

 

The twist is that everyone is lying. The friend Jack has that could get the money is lying. And they got shot at.

 

After being chased. They ended up stranded  on ice. Cold and dying. Then they got escorted to a Russian submarine. 

 

The bigger picture is the behind twist. Who get the oil? The Americans or the Russians? 

 

Not as engaging as I hope. But I'm not that into extreme sports. 

 

Still a 4 stars read.

Wow!!
Stone Devil Duke (A Hold Your Breath Nov... Stone Devil Duke (A Hold Your Breath Novel) (Volume 1) - K.J. Jackson

Stone Devil Duke by is my first book by K.J. Jackson, but won't be my last.  Ms. Jackson has delivered a well-written book. The characters are phenomenal.  Kudos to Ms. Jackson for these awesome characters and their interaction.  Aggie is searching for her father's killers before they can kill her too.  Disguised as a hack driver, Aggie unwillingly picks up Devin when his carriage suffers a broken wheel.  Their story is packed with intrigue, action, drama and sizzle.  I totally loved reading Stone Devil Duke and look forward to reading more from K.J. Jackson in the future.  Stone Devil Duke is book 1 of the Hold Your Breath Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

REVIEW BY HELEN - Life's Forever Changed (The Show Me Series: The Prequel) by Anne Stone
Life's Forever Changed - Anne Stone
After Alejandro Alvarez’s best friend dies of kidney disease while in high school, Alejandro vows to change his life. Determined to help others suffering from his friend’s illness, he rejects joining his father’s pediatrics practice and instead trains as a nephrologist and a transplant surgeon. Fourteen years later, devotion to his career has rewarded him with a reputation as an excellent surgeon, but success has left him alone, with no family that he can call his own. 

Pediatric Intensive Care Nurse Tammy Johansen is on duty when an infant must undergo a life-saving transplant. Working closely with famed surgeon Dr. Alejandro Alvarez, she sees the sensitive, lonely man beneath his professional exterior and wonders can such a man be interested in someone like her? 

As they battle to save the tiny patient, Alejandro struggles with the emptiness within himself until the lovely and compassionate nurse at his side catches his attention. In that moment, one look at Tammy forever changes his life. 

Life’s Forever Changed is the Prequel to Anne Stone’s The Show Me series.

Entertaining Paranormal
Stone Bear: Sentinel (Stone Bears Book 1... Stone Bear: Sentinel (Stone Bears Book 1) - Amelia Jade

Stone Bear: Sentinel by Amelia Jade is an entertaining paranormal book.  Ms. Jade has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are fun and lovable.  Gabriel and Caia's story is full of drama, suspense, humor, action and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Stone Bear: Sentinel and look forward to reading more from Ms. Jade in the future.  Stone Bear: Sentinel is book 1 of the Stone Bear Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

[ [ [ A Tumbled Stone - Greenlight [ A TUMBLED STONE - GREENLIGHT BY Laycock, Marcia Lee ( Author ) Mar-22-2012[ A TUMBLED STONE - GREENLIGHT [ A TUMBLED STONE - GREENLIGHT BY LAYCOCK, MARCIA LEE ( AUTHOR ) MAR-22-2012 ] By Laycock, Marcia Lee ( Author )M - Marcia Lee Laycock

A Tumbled Stone by Marcia Lee Laycock Book starts out with Andrea in the Saskatchewan wilds where she lives with her foster parents. She's in charge of the farm animals and they are cruel and it's hard work. Desolate prairies and barren lands and she's pregnant from her boyfriend and she will be leaving for a year to stay with the sister of the foster mother. Story also follows Alex and he's on his way to find his sister-he assumes she was also put in foster care when they were younger. Alternating chapters and Andrea learns from her new location that God is not mad at her and she has friends who help her understand God. Alex and his wife are on the trail and know where she was prior to leaving the area... Andrea brings them all together over time and she has choices and many options from all directions. Like that the characters are not all thrown together in one big lump but gradually so you can get their story down before others are introduced. Like the fact that family matters and how it helps here. Love how they list the pro and cons of the situation and it helps clear her mind, also praying to God. Love what the stone does for her...Story has a bit of everything for your reading pleasure: romance, travel, family situations, mysteries, and forgiveness. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end. Received this review copy from the author via The Book Club Network and this is my honest opinion.
