Review: Stranger in My House Mari Manning

Stranger in my House (A Murder in Texas #2)

Synopsis

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.

5-Stars Review

I loved it! Characters are amazing and so well-written. I enjoyed the mystery, the romance, and unexpected ending. It is a delightful read, a must for all book lovers.

When Kirby's half-sister arrives at her doorstep unexpectedly she thinks of it as good sign. But all is not well in the world of Frankie. Apparently someone has kidnapped her mother and is now after her. As both sisters look exactly alike, it is decided that Kirby will go to the ranch in stead of Frankie and investigate the disappearance of her mother.

Kirby is a cop. She thinks she will be able to handle the kidnapper and find out exactly what is going on at the ranch, which Frankie is going to inherit one day. When she arrives at the ranch things are different from what Frankie has explained. Everyone seems to hate her. It looks like the whole town could be a suspect. Frankie hasn't been good.

In all the craziness that follows Seth is an ally. Even though Frankie warned her about him it seems that she cannot resist him after all. Soon she find herself falling for the sexy ranch manager who is too intelligent to keep buying her charade for long. She wonders what is to come out of all this mess....

I enjoyed reading this book. It is one of the best mystery novels I have read this year.
