A Stranger Watches by Kathi Oram Peterson

A Stranger WatchesA Stranger Watches by Kathi Oram Peterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Suspense

Book Description:  Something is wrong. Despite the fact that Kyra Fletcher hasn’t seen her estranged father in five years, the peculiar birthday card he sends in the mail is out of character—and alarming.
Determined to put her mind at ease and mend their relationship in person, Kyra travels to her father’s Wyoming lodge. She finds it well kept but vacant, and according to the people in town, her father has been gone for months. Kyra is certain something has happened to him and turns to local Sheriff Shane McQuire for help. As the pair works together to investigate her father’s whereabouts, Kyra finds herself becoming more and more comfortable with the town—and its sheriff. But she is unaware of one deadly detail: someone is watching her, and as she draws ever closer to the answers she seeks, that person will do anything to ensure her silence.

My thoughts: Oooohhhhh! This book starts off with a bang (literally) and the momentum speeds up until the end of the book.

Kyra and her father have been estranged for five years. He leaves a message on her phone saying that he is coming to see her and make amends, but he never shows up. Kyra, not wanting to let it go, shows up and finds that her father is missing and the circumstances are very suspicious. Right from the beginning, the book is full of suspense and mystery. Kyra teams up with the local sheriff and tries to locate her father.

This book started off at a little slower for me. It quickly picked up the pace and became a book that I could not put down. I could not figure out who the bad guy was. There were so many options. Just when I thought I knew, it became apparent that I did not know.

I loved the setting and the characters. The book contains a little bit of romance, but it is not the focus. What little there was, I appreciated and wholeheartedly approved.

I love Kathi Oram Peterson's books and I look forward to each and every one. This book contains non-graphic violence.
