Stranger in My House by Mari Manning
Released June 13, 2016 by Entangled Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
When Kirby Swallow assumes her half sister’s identity to help figure out who’s threatening her, she finds herself in way over her head. On the remote Texas ranch her sister calls home, she confronts a growing list of suspects and a rising body count—all while wearing her sister’s 4-inch heels. The only problem is the sexy ranch manager, Seth Maguire, is starting to catch on to the charade. The attraction between them is undeniable—and soon, what starts out as just a one-night stand, turns into something much deeper. But someone on the ranch is out for blood…and Kirby’s next.
Stranger in My House is a page turner filled with suspense. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and didn’t want to put it down.
Kirby is a cop who has a half-sister that could pass for her twin. Her half-sister, Frankie, also happens to be a heiress who thinks someone is trying to kill her. Kirby decides to assume Frankie’s identity to find out who exactly is out to get her. Then Kirby meets Seth who apparently had a fling with Frankie. He doesn’t realize who he thinks is Frankie is actually Kirby. He just thinks Frankie is acting really weird.
There are a lot of questions that are asked and answered in this book. I felt like it was a great story and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes romantic suspense.
Rating: 4.5 stars
About Mari Manning
Let’s start with the fun stuff. I love small towns, mysteries, quiet men, laughter, old-fashioned spaghetti dinners. I love boots and shopping and jokes and Hershey’s dark chocolate and white wine. I love lots of things. But my first love is reading.
I love to read. Just about anything, but it has to be well-written. I go through periods where I am into historical novels or romance or mystery or history or biography. I never know when my desires will suddenly change.
Now for the writer-ish official stuff: Mari Manning is the author of several contemporary romances and three romantic suspense novels set in Texas Hill Country. Stranger At My Door is the first in her A Murder in Teas series. The second, Stranger in My House, will be released by Entangled on June 13. The third book in the series is Stranger in My Bed. Currently Mari is working on a set of cozy mysteries.
She and her husband live in Chicago.
