THE RETURN OF THE STRANGER
THE RETURN OF THE STRANGER (2) by Kate Walker: Heath Montanha returns to the only home he knew as a penniless orphan with thoughts of taking revenge on all those who treated him badly. But all it takes is one look at his childhood friend, Katherine Charlton, to know that despite her betrayal, he still hungers for her. And he’ll wait until she willingly walks into his arms. The novel starts slowly, with more telling than showing, and although Walker incorporates emotionally charged flashbacks, they’re distracting and repetitive. But for readers who enjoy a brooding hero and a somber tone, this novel might appeal.
