S is for Stranger: the gripping psychological thriller you don't want to miss! based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
When I first starting reading this book, I thought I had it figured out. I didn't know that I actually had til the end. I love mysteries. This was a little different for me. I don't won't to give anything away. It is a good fast rwad. I would recommend it. I could see it being made into a movie. I read it on my nook, about 217 pages. RG
Whoa! I feel like my mind has been in the house of mirrors ….. no matter where you look, you really can’t believe what you’re seeing. Sophie is an alcoholic. She’s lost her husband and her daughter because of it. Saturdays she is allowed to spend the day with Amy, her daughter. Meeting Amy and Paul, her ex-husband, at the entrance of a carnival because it’s her birthday, Sophie plans on having a fun time. Getting separated momentarily, she sees a woman talking to Amy. When she looks again, Amy is gone, nowhere to be seen. She frantically calls Paul, asking if he has Amy. He seems perplexed and she says where are you? Do you have Amy? Paul responds by saying he is at home … Amy is with her. So starts this mind-bending journey of a woman searching for her missing daughter. She accuses Paul of wanting everyone to think she’s crazy. No one seems to believe her. Especially when Sophie starts talking about the murder of her best friend 20 years earlier …. Is Sophie crazy? Confused? Has alcohol fried some of her brain cells? Is she hallucinating? Or is there someone out there … someone who knows the truth and has her daughter? I read the entire book without getting those questions answered. And the ending was way out there. I’m still not sure how I feel about it or even if I understand what happened, This is billed as a gripping psychological thriller and I can certainly agree to that! It does not read as a debut. It is well-written, the characters leap off the pages. I read this in one sitting. Once you start, you aren’t going to want to put it down. My thanks to the author / Carina UK / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
