From bestselling author Michele Campbell comes A Stranger on the Beach, an edge-of-your seat story of passion and intrigue that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Caroline Stark’s beach house was supposed to be her crowning achievement: a lavish, expensive space to showcase what she thought was her perfect family. But after a very public fight with her husband, she realizes things may not be as perfect as they seem: her husband is lying to her, the money is disappearing, and there’s a stranger on the beach outside her house.
As Caroline’s marriage and her carefully constructed lifestyle begin to collapse around her, she turns to Aidan, the stranger, for comfort…and revenge. After a brief and desperate fling that means nothing to Caroline and everything to him, Aiden’s infatuation with Caroline, her family, and her house becomes more and more destructive. But who is manipulating whom in this deadly game of obsession and control? Who will take the blame when someone ends up dead…and what is Caroline hiding?
***3 Star Review***
A Stranger on the Beach starts out full of suspense. We are introduced to the main characters Caroline and Aiden. Caroline is going through a rough time in her marriage with her husband Jason and Aiden seems to have been at the right place at the right time. They have a very brief affair but someone can't let go of their feelings. Mysterious things start to happen between this "relationship" but you have no clue who to believe since this book is told from a dual point of views. You get inside the head of both Caroline and Aiden.
Who is lying? Who is telling the truth? Who murdered someone?
During the course of reading, the story line slowed down a bit for me but I was intrigued enough to continue flipping the pages. I need to find out what actually happened and who was telling the truth.
I will admit I saw the twist coming before it was revealed. However, I know many won't and their jaws will be on the floor.
As a huge thriller reader, Stranger on the Beach was a solid thriller that will many will love. I enjoyed it and think it will be a good beach read this summer.
