Rating: 4.5/5 stars


Like any enterprising woman, Bea knows what she’s worth and is determined to get all she deserves—it just so happens that what she deserves is to marry rich. After a lifetime of forced instruction in the art of swindling men by her mother, Bea wants nothing more than to escape her shadow, close the door on their sordid past, and disappear safely into old-money domesticity. When Bea finds her final mark in the perfectly dull blue-blooded Collin, she’s ready to deploy all her tricks one last time. The challenge isn’t getting the ring, but rather the approval of Collin’s family and everyone else in their tax bracket, particularly his childhood best friend Gale. Going toe-to-toe with Gale isn’t a threat to an expert like Bea, but what begins as an amusing cat-and-mouse game quickly develops into a dangerous chase. 

Stone Cold Fox is an outstanding debut featuring one of the most fun con artist stories I’ve read recently. Our main character Bea is downright devious and extremely motivated to get what she wants out of life. At the core of this story is an entertaining cat-and-mouse game between Bea and her soon-to-be husband’s bestie, Gale. The inner monologues that Bea has about Gale kept me laughing as I waited on the edge of my seat for what wild shenanigan would come next. I loved the juicy bird’s eye view that readers were given into the lives of the mega-rich. Stone Cold Fox is a fantastic escapist read filled with turns and twists. 

A huge thank you to Berkley for my free copy!
