My Peer Review - Stella
Stella—blonde, leggy, sexy, mysterious—the kind of woman every man dreams about. Randolph Lowe is no exception. The woman described in the folder he holds has one attribute he considers less than attractive—she’s an assassin. As an officer with the M15 Protection Unit, his assignment is to find her and take her out—and not on a date.
Colin Galbraith’s recent release, Stella (her alias) turned out to be so much more than I expected. From the blurb, I prepared for a game of cat and mouse between hero and heroine, and boy was I surprised. There was a game involved, but with twists and turns I sure never expected. I can’t divulge more without making this a spoiler, but I have to say this author’s brain works overtime in finding ways to shock and delight his readers. His colorful descriptions draw you into the story and hold you there. I entertained no thought of putting the story down until I finished.
Travel the world as Randolph trails Stella. You’ll glimpse some fascinating cities. Feel the emotion as Agent Lowe battles the growing attraction he feels for his “target,” and be stunned at what he finds. I promise you won’t be sorry. Kudos, Colin for creative and entertaining read I’m proud to recommend.
Stella is available at Eternal Press.
