A baby girl's future hangs in the balance~when Cash's only sister leaves guardianship to her best friend instead of him.
Successful contractor, Cash Langley doesn't have time for love. He's happily single and immersed in his business. When his baby sister Dena and her husband die in an auto accident, little Angie is left an orphan. At the reading of the will, Cash discovers that Angie's guardian is Jane Everett, not him. It must be a mistake—one he won't stand for.
Loving, stylish Jane Everett grew up next door to the Langleys. While Dena and Cash were still very young, their mother left the family and Dena spent more and more time with the next door neighbors Dena and Jane, the same age, became best friends, almost sisters. Before Dena died, the thought that Angie would become hers had never entered Jane's mind.
Unwilling to take the matter to court, Cash and Jane face the situation. Jane owns a dress shop in a small tourist town in the north woods of Wisconsin while Cash owns a multi-million dollar construction company in Chicago. How can they share custody of a toddler?
Much to Jane's dismay, Cash finds a way. It's not that Jane doesn't want to share Angie with her uncle. But because Jane fell in love with Cash at her sweet sixteen birthday, having him almost daily in her life again shakes her to her core. Unfortunately Cash still only sees her as his baby sister's friend. And after his mother's abandonment and a failed engagement, he has a heart of stone. Will Jane hold so tightly to Angie that Cash finally loses patience and sues for custody or will Cash open his heart to Jane and all the love she has to give him?

Never has a book been so aptly named as this one - A Heart of Stone. In this exceedingly well written story, the characters are amazingly well portrayed. I felt like I was there watching this story unfold. Bu the end, I counted several characters as friends. I think Grandma Lucy may be my favorite character! If you enjoy close families, small towns, clean romance and watching God work his wonders, you must read this book!
A Heart of Stone by Lyn Cote is the fourth book in her Opposites Attract series. Cash Langley wants no part of love. He’s happy as a bachelor. When his sister dies in a car wreck, she leaves guardianship of her infant daughter to her best friend, Jane Everett. Protesting that there has been some mistake, Cash seeks to fix things. Not wanting a big court battle Cash and Jane try to work out their differences for the good of little Angie. What a sweet story! Cash and Jane are complete opposites, when together the sparks fly! Baby Angie was so cute you just wanted to hold and cuddle her. I thought Cash was a bit hard and callous in the beginning, but the way he treated Angie was so endearing. As Cash and Jane worked together to overcome their past you could feel the timbre of the story change. If only we could recognize the examples of love all around us everyday maybe we wouldn’t have to go through such trials! I received this e-book from the author in return for my honest review.
