Happy Pub Day to A Stranger on the Beach by Michele Campbell !!! YAHOO!!! We are so excited about this one!!!
Holy Shooty Balls!!! Gripping, highly compulsive, & spine-tingling suspense!A STRANGER ON THE BEACH by MICHELE CAMPBELL is an engrossing, chilling, suspenseful, fun, easy, brisk, and mind-bending psychological thriller that was absolutely unputdownable. I was immediately sucked into the narrative and devoured every single page of this highly entertaining and deceptive book. Once I started reading it I was hooked and so absorbed in the storyline that I lost all sense of time. My nose was definitely lost in this book and nothing was going to distract me until I finished reading it.
MICHELE CAMPBELL delivers quite the impressive, clever, complex, tension-filled and well-written read here that was extremely well-plotted, well-layered and well-played. The story was deliciously told from the perspectives of both Caroline and Aidan. And let me tell you I absolutely loved the manipulative and obsessive nature of both of their perspectives. It was extremely fun trying to figure out who the unreliable character was here. Both perspectives fed right into each other perfectly.
Michele Campbell has restored my faith in thrillers with this exciting, entertaining, uniquely written story that had me fascinated with our main characters from the very start right to that exciting ending that I did see coming.
A Stranger on the Beach is one of this summers highly anticipated reads and there has been quite a bit of hype built-up for this one. I was going to let that hype train pass on by for fear of all those hyped-up “Never Saw it coming ending” Well, well did I ever underestimate this one and I am so glad that I didn’t let this one pass on by the sister coulee. This one is definitely a summer hit for me and for a few of our Traveling Sisters including my blogging sister Kim It’s All About The Thrill who read this one with us.
Michele Campbell writes a well-layered story here that was all about the way the story was told for me. I was so engrossed and entertained and loved every minute of this story. Michele Campbell does such a great job here creating unreliable interesting some unlikable and likable characters here. Through our main character POV, we are left guessing just who to trust. The clues are so well-layered here and little clues are left along the way for us to pick up on and others that comes together so well in the end. My excitement grew with every chapter and I was slowly inching closer to the edge of my seat as I was piecing this story together until I reached the ending that left me flying out of my chair yelling YAHOO!!! I highly recommend
