Thank you for joining me in another book review post! I had been wanting to read this one for quite some time now. Today I’ll be reviewing…
The Stranger Inside by Laura Benedict
“Kimber Hannon’s belief that she has complete control over her life is shattered the night that she comes home from a trip to find her key no longer opens her front door. There is a stranger living in her house. A stranger who claims he has every right to be there, with the paperwork to prove it. When she confronts the man, he lets her get close enough to whisper, “I was there. I saw what you did.”
She doesn’t know how he knows her, but with those words Kimber knows this stranger isn’t after anything as simple as her money or artwork or charming Craftsman bungalow. She has to find out exactly what he wants and get him out of her carefully orchestrated life before he ruins it.
There are plenty of people in her life who might help, but should Kimber trust any of them? Her lawyer, Gabriel, is also her ex-lover; Diana, her best friend, doesn’t know Kimber slept with her husband; her ex-husband has a new, happier life since leaving her; and her co-workers know she’ll do anything to get her next sale. And no one can know the real reason this man is in her house. Without trust, everyone’s a stranger….”
Ah I loved this one!! Lots of twists, turns and secrets! Though I hated the main character, Kimber, more and more as the book went on. I thought she was a horrible and rude person to be honest. Some parts of the story were a little confusing too, but those are my only negatives. Other than this, I enjoyed it. I had a feeling I was going to really like this one and my instincts were right!
As soon as Kimber finds out the locks had been changed, after getting home after a work trip, everything spirals down from there. A lot of her life was built on a lie.
I can’t say too much without giving anything away, but if you like thrillers/mysteries, definitely check this one out. I really like the cover too, it gives off creepy vibes.
The genres for this one are fiction, thriller, mystery, suspense and adult.
