A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

A Stranger's Game by Colleen Coble {Book Review}

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

A wealthy hotel heiress.

Even though Torie Bergstrom hasn’t been back to Georgia since she was ten, she’s happy to arrange a job for her best friend at one of the family properties on Jekyll Island.

A suspicious death.

But when Torie learns that her best friend has drowned, she knows it is more than a tragic accident: Lisbeth was terrified of water and wouldn’t have gone swimming by choice.

A fight for the truth.

Torie goes to the hotel under an alias, desperate to find answers. When she meets Joe Abbott and his daughter rescuing baby turtles, she finds a tentative ally.

The more Torie and Joe dig, the more elusive the truth seems. One thing is clear: someone will risk anything—even more murder—to keep their secrets buried.

Colleen Coble is hands down one of my absolute favorites. Every time I pick up one of her books, I know I am in for a great suspense read that will keep me on the edge of my seat... A Stranger's Game certainly did not disappoint. 

When Torie's best friend dies of an apparent suicide, she finds herself returning to Jekyll Island after 18 years haven't not returned to her childhood home since her mother's death...the very death that her friend had been there looking into at the time of her own. Right from the start, I was quite drawn into this island setting and the mysterious deaths that seemed to occur there. I found myself wanting to figure out how or if all the pieces fit together. The action at times seemed a little bit slower to me than what I have seen in other books by the author, but I still found myself at the edge of my seat nonetheless... there was so much going on and I felt like there was a good bit of suspicion thrown in various directions to really keep things entertaining throughout.  While I was excited to see how it ended, I also found I enjoyed these characters and wasn't quite ready to say goodbye quite just yet when it ended. 

If you love romantic suspense, this is certainly one to add to your TBR.
