I stayed up until 2 30 this morning to finish this one and even if I feel tired today it will have been SO worth it Michele Campbell hits it out of the park again with this amazing thriller Caroline has a life many would envy a gorgeous new beach home, a successful husband, a loving family, a job title she can toss around even as she spends her days running on the beach and working on her new house But sometimes things are not as they seem Caroline is already lonely when she discovers that her husband is cheating on her Alone and confused, she spends what was meant to be one careless and carefree night with the local bartender, Aidan Only Aidan has different plans and if Caroline thought her life was a nightmare before she let Aidan into her bed Well, she s about to find out just how bad things can get.Told from a few POVs, some reliable and some not so much, OMG, this one was so fun and so completely, dangerously absorbing Thank you to Michele Camp

I enjoyed Stranger on the Beach and it really had me going for a while It wasn t until about 2 3 of the book that I was pretty sure what was going on and still, I wanted to know Aidan, a 27 year old bartender, is fixated with the mansion on his late granddad s former property and he visits the land often, even once a mansion is built on the land Carolyn is the wealthy 43 year old woman who has built the beach mansion, along with her husband, who work works for an investment company The first 2 3 of the story is told from both Carolyn s viewpoint and Aidan s viewpoint How confusing that their versions of the same events are so very different and it s very hard to figure out who is telling the truth In fact, it seems likely that both versions could be unreliable Carolyn is not a likeable character and is very concerned with her reputation among other rich people so her version is surely tainted with her need to be accepted among the wealthy crowd Aidan was convicted of manslaughter as a teenager and he s never overcome the stigma and also the fact that he feels he was wrongly accused Aidan s
A Stranger on the Beach is an entertaining ride, though the start was fun than the finish Caroline has it all A loving husband of 20 years, a well behaved daughter, a lavish life in New York City and now, her dream beach house She throws a party at the new beach house, where her husband, Jason, arrives late, with a new woman Rumors of his infidelity swirl and he seems dishonest with Caroline, claiming the woman is a business associate Caroline drowns her sorrows at a local bar, flirting with the young, handsome bartender, Aidan, which then turns into a one night stand The following day, Aidan hardly seems like the same guy and Caroline becomes fearful of what he ll do next, based on the way he s acting and what she learns about his past The story becomes a whirlwind as Caroline tries to figure out what Aidan s next move will be and if there s any hope of saving her marriage The story is told from alternating POVs of both Caroline and Aidan, making the reader question which version of events is true Who can be trusted I was swept up in the fast paced story which held my attention, but felt the final section of the book was by far the weakest The story slowed down quite a bit, and though the outcome was not what I initially expected, aft
I m going to keep this one short and to the point, because so many other reviewers have given much helpful thoughts on this book already While the plot was intriguing and featured a clever idea, I found myself having trouble connecting with the characters I m quite likely in the minority here, but the multiple scenes th
I have never lied to you I have always told you some version of the truth Jack Nicholson Michele Campbell packs a wallop of lies, deceits, untruths, and fractured distortions into a wicker picnic basket ready for unpacking at the seashore All the condiments come in varying sizes and strengths Some are gonna be whoppers.Caroline Stark has it all She stares out of the cathedral window of her newly built lavish beach house With her background in interior design, this abode has quite the plush furnishings and fixtures She and her husband, Jason, an investment banker, have locked down the ultimate getaway.Her eye is drawn to a young, handsome man standing on the public beach gazing up at the house He s still there when she comes back from her run He introduces himself as Aidan Callahan who tends bar at the Red Anchor along the beachside Caroline excuses herself to go inside to finish last minute details for her housewarming party that night Aidan makes her feel a bit unsettled and excited at the same time.That evening as the party is in full swing, Caroline receives a phone call from Jason saying that he s tied
I started reading A Stranger on the Beach on 5 3 2019 and finished it on 5 6 2019 at 4 50AM This book is a great read As always, I go into the story blindly without reading the synopsis I liked the start and got confused later on when views don t add up and realized that the narrators were getting unreliable I became lost and couldn t guess where the story was headed and the main characters don t help because they were confused themselves I like learning how local beach citizens think of the city folks who own those mansions by the beach front I like how light headed this thriller is because it s not gruesome at all.This book is told in the first person point of view following an upper class Caroline, 43 as she witnessed seeing a stranger, Aidan on the beach watching her new beach mansion She s throwing a housewarming party and her husband, Jason of 20 years showing up with another woman She drowned her sorrows with a local to a one night stand that ended up than what she bargained for The alternative point of view told in third person is Aidan, bartender He has a troubled past He is obsessed with Caroline and her beach house because it was built in place of his Grandpa s fishing shack He s poor and dreams of a better life and sees that Caroline, pretty and in the process of getting a divorce, may be his ticket out Third view is Jess, state police, introduce later in the story l
