Stranger at Sunset by Eden Baylee

Stranger at SunsetStranger at Sunset by Eden Baylee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Eden Baylee contacted me and said that this is her first thriller, would I like to read it? I thought she meant it was her debut novel. So when I was marking it to read I discovered she had other books, erotica, oh my, this book is so far from erotica as you could ever be, unless someone in a bikini in Jamaica is seen to be erotic lol

Eden has done a marvelous job with this book. She says within her book how she likes to delve into the characters, she is really awesome in that way, each person in this book is 'alive'.

The plot is very good, and chosen well in a series of history that we will all relate to, remember or know of. This is what makes it sound so real.

I would like to thank Eden Baylee for keeping me entertained this afternoon whilst reading this book at a hospital department awaiting my husband where I would otherwise have been bored. This took me away from it all.

Vacation can be a killer.

Dr. Kate Hampton, a respected psychiatrist, gathers with a group of strangers at her favorite travel spot, Sunset Villa in Jamaica. Included in the mix are friends of the owners, a businessman with dubious credentials, and a couple who won the trip from a TV game show.

It is January 2013, following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The luxury resort is struggling, not from the storm, but due to a scathing review from caustic travel writer, Matthew Kane. The owners have invited him back with hopes he will pen a more favorable review to restore their reputation.

Even though she is haunted by her own demons, Kate feels compelled to help. She sets out to discover the motivation behind Kane's vitriol. Used to getting what he wants, has the reviewer met his match in Kate? Or has she met hers?

Stranger at Sunset is a slow-burning mystery/thriller as seen through the eyes of different narrators, each with their own murky sense of justice. As Kate's own psychological past begins to unravel, a mysterious stranger at Sunset may be the only one who can save her.
