Caila, like most dreamers, just wants to be wanted. Unlike most dreamers, she's wanted by the CIA.
When the last decade of thirty-two year old Caila Domenici's life disappears, destroyed in a car accident, she is forced to begin again. Defying doctor's orders to slow-go-it, she sets out to navigate the world on her own. It's not going well. Coddled from birth, everything from a bus schedule to how to boil water confounds her. Worse yet, she's about to accept her meddling mother's offer to pay for food and rent.
With just a hunch her talents extend beyond that of daughter of privilege, Caila searches for her past. Before she can find it, it finds her. And the handsome azure-eyed stranger who's saying he knows her is somehow part of it. Caila always believed there had to be more, but now, on the verge of discovering the truth, she must decide which is worse - never knowing who she really is, or knowing too much.

I received this book from Goddess Fish Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. This is a rich and detailed story, with a plot full of twists and turns, an intricate tale that will keep you occupied as you turn the pages. I won't mention the storyline as that is what the synopsis is for. What I will say is that the characters are well-rounded and fleshed out, whether you like them or not. The one thing I will comment on is that the timeline jumps about a bit and can be slightly confusing until you realise just where you are. It is a small matter though, within the bigger picture. This does end on a cliffhanger so I am hoping there will be more from Arby Corry very soon. Definitely recommended. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

"Caila is a strong heroine in the novel Heart-Shaped Stone by Arby Corry. She cannot remember the past 10 years because of a horrendous car accident and lives her days in New York, in her small apartment. She desperately wants to remember her past, but her doctors and over protective mother, Charmaine, want her to get on with life. Charmaine is a powerful woman who has constant surveillance on her daughter. Not only to keep tabs on Caila, but also to protect her… from the CIA! Caila can sense that there is a dangerous dark part of her past and also a nagging sense that she has met someone worth knowing and can’t remember. There are pieces of her missing and she needs to solve the puzzle of her past. The author, Corry, weaves a complex web of intrigue and self-reflection through the main character Caila. She is thrown into the reality of her past one night and confronted by family. This is shocking because she does not have the historical context of trust, emotions and connections that we all take for granted in our lives. She is alone, surrounded and forced to replay her old life. Only this old life has a key piece of the puzzle. His name is Reece and that is just the beginning. Caila feels an immediate attraction and even more confusion. Does she want to pursue this attraction or protect herself from the unknown past? Deftly written, Heart-Shaped Stone entertains the reader with well thought out characters, tendrils of suspense and deceit, and a love story that makes you root for the heroine in her quest to get her life back and the truth of her past. I enjoyed the novel and it was difficult to review and not give away anything as a spoiler. Be prepared for a wild ride of emotions." TBR-TopBookReviewers
