From #1 New York Times best-selling author Barbara Freethy comes the third book in the popular Callaway Series, an emotional and suspenseful novel of love, family and dangerous secrets.
Ria is as sexy and sultry as a warm tropical night and as beautifully dangerous as the island drinks she serves at the beachside bar on Isla de los Suenos - The Island of Dreams. But Ria is not as carefree as she appears, and the pretense is wearing her down. One night she risks everything to escape from reality.
Drew Callaway is a former Navy pilot and rescue operative looking for his own escape from a life that has seen too much tragedy. Meeting Ria is like embracing the sun, and their single night together is life-changing. But the dream quickly fades when Ria is killed in a tragic accident at sea.
Months later, thousands of miles away from where they first met, Drew sees a woman who looks just like Ria. She claims her name is Tory, and that they've never met before, but he can see that she's in trouble, and he can't walk away. He's going to save her whether she wants it or not.
Drew isn't afraid of a little danger, but can he risk losing his heart to a beautiful stranger?
This is the second book in this series that I read. I felt the other one had more of a story to it. I was a bit disappointed in this one.
Would you consider the audio edition of Falling for a Stranger to be better than the print version?
Just as good. Of course listening to the narrator gave credence to the different emotions expressed so brilliantly.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Ria was my favourite. She was so feisty, go-getting, spirited, refusing to give in to the persons working to destroy her and Megan.
Have you listened to any of Shannon McManus’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I haven't but I would love to listen to her again and again. She is superb.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Drew realised that Ria was lost to him forever, he was devastated.
Any additional comments?
The mix of mystery and romance made this an enticing and tantalizing read. Listening to Shannon was just icing on the cake. Well written as all of her books are.This book is so good that you don't want it to end. The sequels take the drama forward and continues with the same characters. I enjoy the way she writes and keeps you involved with all the characters.
But this is what Barbara Freethy does so well. This book is a must read - every page brings one closer to the astounding finale. Sit back and enjoy. Great read! Follow the Callaways. The series is surreal.
