it was a good overall story. the story was just kinda messy being that it had so many story lines. other than that and I didn't really like the ending, it would have been a 4.
Stranger's Game was incredibly suspenseful at times with some likable characters but too much family drama. Grace could have been an amazing character if she was more consistent. One minute she was brilliant and methodical, determined to find justice, next minute impulsive and reckless.
For example, Grace has sex with Breed (virtual stranger) without a condom because she isn't worried about getting pregnant. And she sits down to read a diary in the middle of searching a house for evidence. Later, when she thinks the FBI SAWT team will swarm her home at any moment, she goes to bed rather than hide out in the woods or start walking to anywhere else. Really?
Besides the Grace & Breed storyline, there was a subplot involving Kate (widow with twins) and Jack (Texas Ranger) and assorted relatives of Breed whose connections weren't really explained. While both are likable characters, there was so much (possibly from previous books) that didn't make sense. Books that are part of a series and can't stand alone should be clearly marked as such.
Joan Johnston is a gifted writer, able to mix suspense, humor and romance. If only Audible would offer the entire series or make it clear in the book's description that this novel is part of a series..
