Blurb: Museum curator Summer Hawthorne considered the exquisite ice-blue ceramic bowl given to her by her beloved Japanese nanny a treasure of sentimental value — until somebody tried to kill her for it.
The priceless relic is about to ignite a global power struggle that must be stopped at all costs. It’s a desperate situation, and international operative Takashi O’Brien has received his directive: everybody is expendable. Especially the woman who is getting dangerously under his skin as the lethal game crosses the Pacific to the remote and beautiful mountains of Japan, where the truth is deadly.

Why is it a favourite?
Back in the long long ago, a two level book store opened near where I live. This store (for a few years at least) was a game changer for me. I had a small source of income and unrepentantly spent too much of it here.
One section of this store that opened up a new world of accessible books for me was the romance section. I will admit I didn’t like being seen in this section or spending too much time in here but still it had WAY more romance books than my library 😍
One of my first impulse purchases was this novel, Ice Blue. Anne Stuart opened up the world of Romantic Suspense to me. I devoured the book and loved it. Better yet, it sits fondly in my heart not because of the story but because of how after Ice Blue, I got to go back and buy the rest of the series. It was great going in to check each time to see if the next book had been released.
Why would you Recommend it?
Ice Blue is an enjoyable romantic suspense novel that features a biracial character, an interracial relationship, and a lot of time spent dedicated to Japan. Anne Stuart is a master writer and you will find yourself flipping through the pages and racing to the end.
Harlequin has just re-released the eBook! So what are you waiting for, go out and read this gem! I suppose you should also read the first two books and then the rest of the series while you’re at it 😋
