THE STRANGER AND TESSA JONES
THE STRANGER AND TESSA JONES (2) by Christine Rimmer Shop owner Tessa Jones is venting some anger against her ex when a stranger shows up at her remote home and collapses. A snowstorm is on the way, so she takes him in and cares for him, though he has no idea who he is. Eventually, he remembers he's Ash Bravo, CEO of BravoCorp, and starts putting the pieces together. The picture that emerges isn't pretty -- and Ash comes to hate the idea of leaving Tessa, who's unhappy but accepts that he'll return to his regular life. Rimmer's latest has a pair of well-matched characters with decent chemistry, but there's not a lot of action -- or romance.
