Review: Strangers in the Night by Patricia H. Rushford

About the book:


All she wants is to protect her daughter and avoid notice. But the handsome stranger with Frank Sinatra eyes threatens to change everything. 

For two long years, Abbie Campbell has been on the run with her four-year-old daughter, Emma. Then she receives a visit from Jake Connors, a friend of her parents, who convinces her to join them in the beautiful town of Cold Creek, Oregon. Jake is determined to help Abbie clear her name of the accusations that sent her into hiding.

Being with her family again—and with Jake—fills Abbie with a peace she hasn’t felt in years, and the prospect of turning an old lumber town into an artists’ retreat gives her new purpose. But then comes an unknown threat worse than all that Abbie has already faced, worse even than the fear of discovery that’s haunted her for two years. For lurking in the beautiful hills of Cold Creek is a killer determined to stop her at all costs.

My thoughts:

Strangers in the Night was a good read - a little predictable, but I still enjoyed it. I liked the characters and thought the romance was sweet, though I wish the ending would have had a bit more closure.

The mystery was good and, while I did end up guessing the guilty party, there were still a few surprises in the story and Strangers in the Night kept me interested.

This is the first book I've read from the "When I Fall In Love" collection, but it won't be my last, as I'm really excited to read "Unforgettable" by Trish Perry when I have the time.

If you enjoy books with some romance and suspense, I think you might enjoy Strangers in the Night.
