The Stranger Inside by Lisa Unger @lisaunger @parkrowbooks @HarlequinBooks @HarperCollinsCa

Lisa Unger nails it here with The Stranger Inside. It is now available and we are pretty excited about this one. There was a bit of dancing going on for The Traveling Sisters after we got over our shock from that brilliant twisted twist! This is one we highly recommend you run to your device or to your local book store and snatch this one up as fast as you can. Lock yourself in a room because you won’t want to be disturbed once you start reading this one. You will be dancing with us in no time!!

Norma’s review

Holy Shooty Balls!!  Suspenseful, tense, & compulsively readable!

THE STRANGER INSIDE by LISA UNGER is an engrossing, fantastic, tension-filled, dark, and thrilling novel that was absolutely unputdownable.  I was immediately sucked into the narrative and devoured every single page of this highly entertaining book. I was fully immersed in this story–I don’t think my mind wandered even once while I was reading this book. 

LISA UNGER delivers a vividly descriptive, atmospheric, intriguing, well-written and irresistible thriller here that I absolutely loved and was thoroughly impressed by.  The characters were extremely interesting, compelling, and definitely held my full attention.

The storyline was one that I found myself totally drawn into.  I was questioning and pondering the actions and reactions of our characters here to a point where I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat on pins and needles in anticipation of how it was all going to play out.  I was fully engaged and invested in this tale and the ending left me with shivers and goosebumps!          

Brenda’s review

WaHoo! Hot diggity dang that was good!!

The Stranger Inside is a unique, clever and compelling character study into good people who do bad things. From the start I was drawn into the minds of our main characters, Rain and Hank and their behaviour. Both are dealing in different ways with the childhood trauma they endured involving each other. An avenger killer is unmasked from the start. It’s all about the reveal after that as Rain revisits their memories from their past. The lines are blurred here between right and wrong not only for the characters but for me as well. I found myself questioning vengeance and justice.

Lisa Unger creates an original killer here and I was feeling disturbingly empathic for our characters. I was on a bit of a roller coaster of different feelings here while reading this one and was questioning those lines between right and wrong. It all about the reveal here and I was on the edge of my seat. The tension builds at a rapid speed to that clever dark and twisty reveal. I loved the way this all came together with insight, compassion, danger and tension. I highly recommend!

Lindsay’s review

An engrossing, suspenseful, tension-filled, pulse-pounding, addictive novel!

Rain Winter is a stay-at-home mom who resigned from her high pressure career as an investigative journalist when she had her daughter, Lily. Though she loves being home with Lily, she finds herself drawn into a new murder case that could be linked to past cases.

I was hooked from page 1! The way this book is narrated is brilliant! The tension builds as each chapter progresses. I loved the characters! I really enjoyed the motherhood side of the story from Rain’s perspective. I could strongly relate to her character being a stay at home mom who feels the pull back into the career world. 

This was my first book by this author, Lisa Unger. I was extremely impressed! I adored the writing! The pace and flow were excellent which kept me fully engaged in the story and invested in the characters from start to finish. This has easily earned a spot on my 2019 Favourites list!

Thank you to Harlequin for sending our copies to read and review! There are going on our favorite shelve!

From Stephanie’s review

The Stranger Inside is an intricately layered psychological thriller that will keep you riveted from start to finish. It’s a story of survival, the impact of survivor’s guilt, and the lingering impact of childhood trauma and violence at the hands of a monster. The book is absorbing, suspenseful, and utterly compelling. More than anything, it will leave you questioning what exactly is justice in the face of evil and does evil deserve their fates.
