IN THE ARMS OF A STRANGER is an entertaining, romantic suspense that will keep you guessing about the characters' past and how it will shape their futures. Well written, with plenty of sexual tension and even, at times, comical elements, IN THE ARMS OF A STRANGER is a delightful read.
Abby Price, a young widow and mother of a four-year-old son, is determined to find out who her husband, Wade Price, had really been. Following his death, Abby learned that her husband, whom she had known for seven years, had been living a double life as a spy and may have gone rogue. Then one rainy night, Abby meets Wade's partner, JP Blackmon.
Abby, determined to finally learn the truth about her ex-husband's life, seeks out JP and tries to convince him to take her along in his quest to find the truth. Abby, however, doesn't know how much she should trust JP, who is apparently running from his own troubles.
Throughout the twists and turns that Abby and JP take to unravel the truth, the sexual tension and romantic connection builds. But can Abby ever really trust JP, who is so much like her ex-husband? Can JP ever let himself be with his ex-partner's and mentor's wife? Even if JP does believe that Wade may have double crossed him, doesn't Abby deserve so much more?
IN THE ARMS OF A STRANGER exemplifies how important trust is in every relationship and makes you question whether, at times, we may turn a blind eye to things we don't want to see, especially when it involves our loved ones. Moreover, Ms. Kelly does a great job of writing a story that proves that strong attractions, irrespective of common sense, sometimes can't be denied.
A truly enjoyable read, I recommend IN THE ARMS OF A STRANGER, to anyone who enjoys a good romantic suspense novel!
