The Stranger Inside by Jennifer Jaynes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have loved Jennifer Jaynes books since I read Never Smile At Strangers. I devoured that series. When I saw this book was coming out I instantly pre-ordered it. Then I waited. I don't think I was ever so impatient for a book to be released! Was it worth the wait? Oh yes!
I never read any of the blurbs about it. In all honesty, given the title, I assumed it was going to be another book in the series. I was surprised when I began it and knew it wasn't. I was not surprised or disappointed at all though by the writing. This author is amazing. You definitely want to carve out enough time to read it non stop. The story will hold you captive. Don't worry though, it moves at a fast pace. I figured it out. Then doubted myself. Figured it out again. Changed my mind. Kept questioning myself and the clues almost to the reveal! Then after the reveal, I was asking myself a new set of questions. I am still playing the question game. I imagine I will be for awhile.
Jennifer Jaynes books tend to stay with me. I find myself recommending them long after I read them. This book will join the others on my favorites shelf. It will be a book I return to in the winter when I love to read a good thriller cuddled up with my dog, (who gives this book two paws up - four paws up being reserved for belly rubs), hot chocolate and snow outside. I am already eagerly waiting for the next book. If you are thinking of getting this book, like a fast pace, enjoy true crime, (this is not a true crime book though), stop thinking. Go get this thriller.
