Stranger At Sunset by Eden Baylee

Stranger at SunsetStranger at Sunset by Eden Baylee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stranger at Sunset is a mystery, Psychological thriller set in Jamaica. It opens with a prologue and a body is thrown from a balcony with a witness to the scene.

The main body of the story then begins, the Pearsons own Sunset Villas in Jamaica and their business has suffered from Hurricane Sandy and a bad review from travel writer Matthew Kane. The owners have invited him back to the resort hoping to get him to write a better review or retract the first one. Several friends come to support the Pearsons during this challenging week.

There are quite a few characters in the book to keep you busy and this allows for several red herrings in the storyline. The guests all dine together with the hosts at the villa and several of them dislike reviewer Matthew Kane, which isn’t helping plans to make his stay a pleasant one.

Kate Hampton is one of their guests, a psychologist, she finds herself analysing Mr Kane and tries hard to pacify his negative attitude towards the resort and her friends. There are lots of clues along the way for you to guess your own outcome to the story.

Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 18

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.

New Good DeedsDuring my week I’ll also being updating you on My Kindness Challenge which I’m also doing. I read about a new challenge to make the world a better place to live in. “Speak Kind Words, Receive Kind Echoes” see the inspiration on  The Kindness blog . During my learning process I’m donating money to charity for my slip-ups to make me work harder to achieve results. I earn no money from any of my book reviews, so having little to spare should focus my mind.

This week I’ve been doing the following;

August 17th – Was at the park by 9.15 this morning to play some tennis with my son, nothing fancy just an hour of whacking the ball back and forth and over the fence and laughing at ourselves. It’s been windy and the overflowing bins have been spreading their rubbish about, so I had a good opportunity for a good deed and I picked most of it up, some of it was spread too far and wide to get.

The book review team are working really hard and I am getting lots of reviews in ready to post out on the blog, plus I’m getting quite a few requests for books to be added to the team list.

August 18th – My books arrived from Amazon today, some to share with family and friends and one particularly for me You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Her books are truly inspirational, she teaches you to change your words and thinking because every ache and illness is a die-ease of the body and a reflection of our fears, guilt and criticism. She helps you turn around from disbelief in yourself and your life to one filled with love. It’s not a quick fix nor an easy process but one which I want to make.

August 19th – I love reading articles on the Kindness Blog and this morning I read about a 99 year old lady who makes a dress everyday for little girls in Africa. Her ambition is to make her 1000th dress by May next year to coincide with her 100th birthday. Little Dresses for Africa is also a charity. Check out the post here

Posted my review of Patriot by A.S. Bond

August 20th – Finished off the last draft post for The Romancing September Across The World Tour. Am a complete bag of nerves today, oldest child is sitting her driving theory test this afternoon.

Hooray she passed the first part of the driving test, we just need loads more work for the practical.

August 21st – Picked up litter while I was out for a walk. Finished reading The Soul and The Seed by Arie Farnam a really good fantasy thriller. Sent a birthday card to friends in Australia.

August 22nd – Found the new bus timetable for when college starts again in September for my oldest child. Copied the info and sent to another friend. Today I’ve been reading Stranger at Sunset by Eden Baylee

August 23rd – Noelle from the book review team sent me a review of the Britannia: The Wall by Richard Denham and MJ Trow we’ll be posting the review next week. Drafted up my post for Eden’s book and posted my review to Goodreads and Amazon. Started reading Frenzy by Mark King
