A compulsive debut of literary suspense, Goodnight Stranger follows one young woman caught between her desire for the future and the tragedy of her past, and the love she has for her brother and the stranger who drives them apart.
Lydia and Lucas Moore are in their late twenties when the stranger enters their small world on Wolf Island. Lydia is the responsible sister, taking care of the pathologically shy Lucas ever since their mom passed a decade before. They live together in the large family house by the sea and are both comforted and confined by their insular lives, heavily shadowed by events from their childhood and the loss of their baby brother, Colin, who was their triplet.
When Lydia sees the stranger step off the ferry, she feels an immediate connection with him. Later, when Lucas meets him, Lucas is convinced this man is the reincarnation of Colin. How else could he be so familiar with their mannerisms, their habits, the topography of the island? Even his name, Cole, is eerily like Colin's. Lydia is suspicious, yet she can't deny his magnetism, his energy and warmth. Who is this Cole Anthony, and what is he after? To find out, Lydia must uncover sinister truths about her family and finally face her anxiety about leaving the island and her fear of losing her closeness with her brother. Goodnight Stranger is a spellbinding read that explores both the beautiful and transcendent ways it means to be family.
