The Stranger Inside
The Stranger Inside | Laura Benedict
9 posts | 8 read | 8 to read
A chilling, suspenseful psychological drama in the tradition of Shari Lapena and Liane Moriarty, by the Edgar and ITW Thriller Award nominated author Laura Benedict. What if you came home to find a stranger living in your house? Kimber Hannon imagines she has complete control over her life, until she comes home to find that her house key no longer opens her front door. A man is living in her house. A stranger, who presents a lease bearing Kimber's own signature. When she confronts him, he gets close enough to whisper, "I was there. I saw what you did." Those words reveal a connection to Kimber's distant past, before her sister's sudden death more than twenty years ago. Her fear abruptly shifts. This trespasser knows her somehow. He isn't after anything as simple as her money or artwork or charming Craftsman bungalow. He wants to come into her carefully orchestrated life--and destroy it. Kimber has always been ruthless when it comes to getting what she wants. But can she discover the truth about her enemy's identity before he makes good on his threat to shine a spotlight into the darkest parts of her past?

Kimber, a 38 year-old remorseless chaos bomb has her life upended when some decide she needs a dose of her own bitter medicine. Things get drawn out longer than neccesary or interesting because secrets & reasons. My high hopes were dashed. 😞 #psychologicalthriller

"Kimber has never trusted Tinker Bell, who seems to be faithful only to boys. Plus, Tinker Bell's a fairy, and in stories fairies use superstition and fear to manipulatr humans."

Kimber returns from a short break to find a stranger in her home. She calls the police, but the guy has a signed lease.

The story is told from two POV: present day Kimber, & diary entries from her older sister Michelle, who died as a teenager.

Although is starts out slow, it does start to pick up about a third of the way in, but I found the MC, Kimber, almost impossible to like or sympathise/empathise with. 3⭐️

A chilling twisted page turning read! This book grabs a hold of you right away as the main charecter Kimber arrives home from a trip to find her keys not working & a strange man living inside her house. The author packs this story with multiple story lines from past to present time making some plots a bit easy to figure out & others leaving you pleasantly surprised.

This one had a great opening, but the end was messy (too many twists.) Not terrible, but not my favorite thriller, either. I‘m adding the sunset pic because isn‘t it gorgeous?
