    I have read all of Emilie's books and I am so glad

    When your older sister calls and asks you to drive four hours across the state to take care of her children no questions asked, you do it. She is your sister after all. Ryan was uncomfortable agreeing to her sister Wendy’s request but she agreed to it. She also agreed, against her better judgement to lie to their parents. Ryan’s career as host and producer of a cold case podcast has her questioning her sister’s requests. Wendy claims that she may be implicated in a murder she has nothing to do with but she wants to lay low until the actual murderer is found. Ryan and her best friend and co-worker try to investigate what possibly could have happened. While trying to take care of Wendy’s two little girls Ryan finds more and more questions with very few answers. Ryan first left her hometown after a summer internship with the local newspaper. During that internship she met and fell in love with a K-9 officer from the local police force who was helping her with a story. As a result of an attack by the subject of an investigation for that story, Teo and Ryan’s lives were changed forever. As part of her return to Seabank, Ryan finds that she once again needs Teo’s help. This book is riveting, as so many sub stories take you through this family’s life. There are lies, betrayal, redemption and love all woven together. I have read everything that Emilie Richards has written that I can find, some more than once. This one was not a disappointment.

    You Won't Stop Until You Hit the Back Cover!

    Emilie Richards's new book "A Family of Strangers" grabs you from the first page and doesn't let you go until well after the book is finished. There is suspense and intrigue from cover to cover. The compelling characters pull you into the carefully crafted world of the Gracey family. Once you are immersed into their lives you just want to keep coming back for more. While this is a stand alone novel all I kept thinking is I hope this becomes a series, so I can visit again and see what happens next. Each character brings a unique and interesting perspective to the story. You could follow anyone of them into a book of their very own. This book should be at the top of your summer reading list. It takes you on an emotional roller coaster that you never want to depart from.

    Riveting!

    Book Review for A Family of Strangers by Emilie Richards This is a book that is so engaging and makes one think about how well we know or think we know our own families and friends. I have read most of what Emilie Richards has written over the years but this book is her deepest one yet. I was amazed at all the twists and turns. This is not just a women's book...I know men would find it riveting also.

    Excellent Story - Secrets, lies, family & mystery

    A Family of Strangers by Emilie Richards I ended up really liking this book, At first I wondered if I would be able to wade through nearly five hundred pages and what there could be to write about BUT it all flowed easily and was a delight to read. Ryan Rose Gracey receives an unexpected call for help from her older sister. Being on a break between true crime podcast seasons she is available to go take care of her sister’s daughters until her sister returns. It is a bit of a daunting task since she doesn’t know the six and eight year old and they, at first, are not easy. As she begins to research the situation that her sister mentioned in the phone call she unearths a number of secrets and stumbles on some mysteries. While her sister stays away from home Ryan becomes invested in her nieces, rekindles a relationship that ended four years previously and gets to know her family in an entirely new light. This is a complex, well-plotted, intense story that kept me invested from beginning to end. If there is anything I might have liked that was not in the book is an epilogue...I would love to know how the characters fare a few years in the future. What I liked: * Ryan Rose’s tenacity and big heart * Teo Santiago – what a wonderful book boyfriend he was * Sophie – the woman that works with Ryan, is her sounding board and good friend * The Gracey parents – they grew on me as the story unfolded * Noelle and Holly – I loved them, felt for them and hoped their lives would all work out eventually * The relationship between Ryan and Teo * Bismark – Biz was a WONDERFUL dog! What I did not like: * The secrets kept within the family * The evil person I was meant to dislike Did I like this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin-Mira for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Roller Coaster Read

    I literally could not put this book down, as it drew me in from the get go and kept me spellbound until the last page. It contains many surprises and is like a roller coaster ride. Hang on for a great reading experience. This is a multi faceted book of family dynamics and will leave you shedding a few tears. What you think may not be reality as family secrets come to light. Captivating characters and a fascinating plot make this the perfect read to begin your summer. I received a complimentary copy from the author/publisher. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.
