ABOUT THE BOOK:
In #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong’s next Rockton book, A Stranger in Town, the biggest mystery is the fate of the town itself.
Detective Casey Duncan has noticed fewer and fewer residents coming in to the hidden town of Rockton, and no extensions being granted. Her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, presumes it’s the natural flux of things, but Casey’s not so sure. Something bigger is happening in the small town they call home.
When an injured hiker stumbles from the woods, the sole survivor of a hostile attack, it’s all hands on deck. Even a member of the elusive Rockton council comes in to help. This council member also comes bearing news: Rockton is being shut down due to the hostile situation.
Casey and Eric must now race to save the town that has allowed residents to have a fresh start, away from the mistakes of their past, while also getting to the bottom of this latest attack.
A 6th installment in the Rockton series? Yes please. Another addictive story following power couple Detective Casey Duncan and Sheriff Eric Dalton? Heck yes! These two are amazing characters that you will quickly and easily fall in love with. Their personalities are fierce, strong, and endearing and you will fall in love with these characters, their town of Rockton and their daily lives as they have mystery after mystery to solve. And they are definitely not easy feats for sure.
When this new and strange woman is found stumbling from the woods she clearly has been attacked. It is thought to be the hostile and everyone is rushing to determine what happened to this woman. Adding to the mystery is the fact that she does not speak English to talking with her and getting answers will not be easy. Soon not all is as it appears to be and they are unsure if this was in fact a hostile attack. If it wasn’t then who could be responsible? Could it be one of their own Rockton residents? Could someone from the outside have attacked this woman? What happened to the rest of the people this woman was with it the woods, and where are they?
There are so many things needing to be solved in this case, you will find yourself hooked and immersed in the storyline as you try to help Casey and Eric solve the mysteries. I just loved these characters and the town’s stories, and was thrilled to hear there was another book in the Rockton series. I definitely recommend this book and cannot recommend it enough. Even though this book is #6 in the Rockton series it can easily be read as a standalone as well. Of course I do recommend that you also read the previous 5 novels in this series at some point as well, this series is incredible and addictive.
Well done Kelley Armstrong. I am so excited to see what you come out with next, especially in the Rockton series!
