Colleen Coble: A Stranger's Game

 By Kelly Bridgewater

This gripping new novel from USA TODAY bestselling romantic suspense author Colleen Coble will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

 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.


My Thoughts:

A Stranger’s Game by Colleen Coble hits all the requirements of a romantic suspense. Filled with hints of danger to the heroine and a romance blooming between the hero and the heroine, the story takes off through the numerous twists and turns. While I enjoy a good suspense novel with hints of romance, this novel was okay for me. Not one of my favorite suspense elements. A little too predictable, yet not that mind blowing either. Wanted more suspense in the story. Similar, the romance seemed a little too out of touch with reality. The hero and heroine started feelings things for each other within the first meeting, then it just kept becoming the focused from then on out. I wanted less romance to the plot. The writing was top notch. I had no problem visualizing the setting that Coble had crafted for the readers. Readers will understand the emotions and the thought process. Overall, A Stranger’s Game by Colleen Coble was an okay romantic suspense novel. Not one of my favorites. However, I believe it would be hard to keep readers guessing after how many novels that Coble has actually crafted.

I received a complimentary copy of A Stranger’s Game by Colleen Coble from Thomas Nelson Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating:  3.5 out of 5 stars
