My Review

Confessions to a Stranger is an intriguing novel with lots of twists and turns. I found the main characters to be likable and believable, which is always important to a good story.

Adaleigh is on the run from an abusive family member and hopes to hide in the little harbor town of Crow’s Nest. Of course, nothing works out the way she plans, and she soon finds herself in the thick of a murder mystery. Also, she’s not sure who she can trust as she gets to know the people in her new community.

If you enjoy cozy mysteries with a historical setting, I’d recommend Confessions to a Stranger.

From the Publisher

She’s lost her future. He’s sacrificed his. Now they have a chance to reclaim it—together.

Wisconsin, 1930—While fleeing for her life, Adaleigh Sirland’s rescue of a child introduces her to a family who provides her safe harbor. When her identity comes under threat of exposure, she must choose between running once more or helping the man who teaches her to hope again.

First mate David Martins is intrigued by the mysterious woman taken in by his grandmother, but she wrestles with a troubled past. When his estranged father is arrested for murder, can David put aside his own struggles in time to discern which secret threatens Adaleigh before it kills them both?

Welcome to Crow’s Nest, where danger and romance meet at the water’s edge.
