The Comfort In Reading

I find so much comfort in reading because of my everyday life and routine. It’s like an escape from the mental prison that is my mind. There was a time when I was strictly into romance novels and to be honest, I’m not really sure why. I just enjoyed them. But now I’ve found myself interested in many other genres… like horrors, thrillers, actions and even some comedies every now and again. But truth be told, who doesn’t enjoy a good vampire book every now and again? At any rate, I’ve completed a book by an author I’ve recently discovered to be pretty awesome & I’d like to share my thoughts.

The Stranger Beside You” by William Casey Moreton – Rating: ★★★★

The Stranger Beside You

Synopsis: Brynn Nelson is living the American dream. She has a nice home in the suburbs, a husband working on Wall Street, and two fabulous kids. But when the FBI rings the doorbell at midnight, storming her home and arresting her husband Tom for murder, her peaceful world is shattered.

When Tom is killed under mysterious circumstances within hours of his arrest, Brynn finds herself following a trail of cryptic clues planted by Tom himself. Soon it’s clear that her husband was leading a secret life, and now those same secrets threaten to kill her next.

My Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I’d come across it a while back on Kindle and it was free so I said what the hell… I downloaded it. It wasn’t until over a month ago that I actually read it and was blown away by how great of a writer Moreton is. The book was full of action and it was definitely not a book you can find yourself being put down so easily… which is why I ended up reading it in two days.


  • This book sounds REALLY good! I started reading again more this year and have been loving it as well. I used to be into thrillers and horror but have recently gotten more interested in women’s fiction and chic lit.

  • Thanks for that great review because I’m a huge fan of mysteries. I just jotted down that title. I’m almost finished the book that I’m reading now so I’ll be on to the next one soon… 🙂

  • hm. the synopsis and your review of the story definitely has me intrigued, but I have so many books (on my reading goal for this year that I keep stopping) and I’m afraid if I went for this one will be added to the list. haha

    Have you heard of GoodReads? That’s a awesome ‘social network/library’ site for avid readers. . .I’ve stumbled across so many gems since I’ve been on there.
