SAM HUTCHINSON was once motivated by power and money. But after his son's murder, he alternates between losing himself in a bottle of scotch and researching James Ryan Morley, the still-at-large killer of the boy Sam never had time for in life. Broken and desperate, Sam traces Morley’s roots to Bandit Creek, Montana and an addict who once sheltered him.

There, against a serene mountain backdrop, he finds the woman’s resourceful daughter, AMY TESHER, and her eleven-year-old child, Renee. Lies are Amy’s camouflage—her age, her name, even the identity of her child’s father—all fabricated to escape the secrets of her past.

Unaware of Sam’s real mission, she takes him into her boarding house. Just as Morley returns to take possession of Amy...and her daughter.

A Stranger's Kiss is an easy, enjoyable read with a beginning that had me very curious and wanting to read more. I mean, who wouldn't be intrigued when seeing a little boy WALK THROUGH A DOOR. 
I love a good ghost story.
But A Stranger's Kiss is a about a little bit more-secrets, danger, a murderer, and finally--redemption. The message of this book touched a really tender corner of my heart--not really knowing what you have and how special it truly is, until its gone--and had me tearing up. It touched the mother soul in me and I greived along with Sam and felt his pain.
Roxy created a heart-felt story with vivid emotions and although I like my book a little more meatier, a little longer, this novella was an entertaining read.
