Well now, where to start? Ah yes. As a huge fan of The Housewife Assassin series, I, like many others, have wondered where our beloved heroine and her dashing hero came from. How did Donna become The Housewife Assassin? How did Jack Craig ever come into her life? Was Carl ever a good husband to Donna? All of these questions (and many more!) are answered in this outrageously fun prequel to the entire Housewife Assassin series. Let me be the first to say, I absolutely loved it. The story fit perfectly into the series, providing a terrific background to build the series on. The characters were a surprise. I honestly found myself liking Carl a bit more, and I discovered much more about both Jack and Donna than I ever thought possible. In a nutshell, this is a novel that current fans will love, and new fans will adore.
Donna Stone has it all. A perfect home, in a perfect neighborhood, with two perfect kids and one on the way, and the perfect dog. Oh, and the perfect husband, Carl. That is, when he’s home. She’s not totally positive what he does, but as long as he’s there for the birth of their third child, daughter Trisha, she’s not overly concerned. At the birth of their child, he rushes her to the hospital and drops her off…..and never comes back. A day or two later, a strange man comes to her room, telling her Carl is dead, and that he has been working with Acme Industries, a secret organization. Her entire world, gone in an instant. As Donna is trying to come to terms with Carl’s death, Jack Craig, another Acme agent, is investigating Carl, and Donna as well. Jack’s boss, Ryan, thinks Donna would make a fantastic agent. Unfortunately, Ryan is right. And when Donna is invited to join Acme, no one is prepared for what will happen next.
Finally--Donna Stone, as you've never seen her before: through the eyes of those who affected her life the most.
In this full-length prequel to The Housewife Assassin series, Acme Industries black-ops agent Jack Craig is tasked with investigating the mysterious death of his organization's most prolific hit man, Carl Stone, only to fall in love with the dead man's wife, Donna--a woman he must never contact, but who may hold the key to her husband's disappearance. When Acme approaches Donna to join their organization as an assassin, Jack's undercover mission will change both their lives forever.
