From #1 NY Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes the third book in the popular Callaway Series, an emotional and suspenseful novel of love, family and dangerous secrets. 

Ria is as sexy and sultry as a warm tropical night and as beautifully dangerous as the island drinks she serves at the beachside bar on Isla de los Suenos -- The Island of Dreams. But Ria is not as carefree as she appears, and the pretense is wearing her down. One night she risks everything to escape from reality.

Drew Callaway is a former Navy pilot and rescue operative looking for his own escape from a life that has seen too much tragedy. Meeting Ria is like embracing the sun, and their single night together is life-changing. But the dream quickly fades when Ria is killed in a tragic accident at sea. 

Months later, thousands of miles away from where they first met, Drew sees a woman who looks just like Ria. She claims her name is Tory, and that they've never met before, but he can see that she's in trouble, and he can't walk away. He's going to save her whether she wants it or not.

Drew isn't afraid of a little danger, but can he risk losing his heart to a beautiful stranger?

** FALLING FOR A STRANGER is the third book in the connected family series, The Callaways. Book #1, ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS and Book #2 SO THIS IS LOVE are currently available for purchase.

Cover:  Another cute and romantic cover.  I love how vibrant this cover is.

I'm loving this series.  

(At the time of this review going up, I have read all 8 books in this series, back to back.)

Falling For a Stranger hooked me from the get go.  Drew and Ria meet on a beautiful tropical island.  Drew is trying to relax after spending so long in the Navy, surrounded by death and pain- but only Ria takes his interest.  They spend one amazing night together, and while Drew has to leave- changes his mind and wants to have the chance to know Ria better- when she is tragically killed in a boating accident.  Stricken, and feeling her loss despite only just having met her- Drew heads home.
A couple of years later- Drew thinks he sees Ria- wishful thinking?  Is he losing his mind?  Or is it really her?
Ahhhh the suspense and intrigue!!  I just didn't want to stop reading.
I loved the chemistry between Drew and Ria- it sizzled!
Ria's niece was adorable and I loved the friendship that developed between her and Drew.  It was really sweet.

Over all, I loved it.  Another great edition to the series, and probably my favourite so far.

5/5 stars.

Read from March 17 to 22, 2015
