⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Antonio just wants to be left alone to live his life and stay off the grid of anyone from his past life, but when a car goes over the edge of the cliff during a snowstorm, Antonio can’t walk away and leave the woman inside to her fate. Maybe he is changing his life after all.
Ciara is on a mission, but why she chose to travel the sketchy roads in Colorado during a snowstorm is something that she will not understand. After her car goes over a cliff and she wakes up in a stranger’s house, she has no memory of what happened, where she is, how she got there, or who she is. Instinct takes over and survival is all that she can think of.
I love Giulia Lagomarsino’s books and Dead Man’s Hand was not a disappointment. It has the great characters, danger, humor, and story line that I love in her books. Antonio is a loner, he’s also socially stunted and when he reaches out to his brother in-law, the humor comes in. I love the Cortell Brothers series and A Good Run of Bad Luck will be a great series as well. Antonio and Ciara both need to find someplace to start over, but they need to get the threat surrounding them to back off. Add in an innocent woman to the mix that needs to be protected, and the sassiness is doubled with the women in this book. Who knew that adopting two dogs would reveal a new side of Antonio? His little girl is more pampered than Ciara is by him. I loved the book, and I look forward to more of this series. I give this book a 5-star review.
