I enjoyed Strangers in the Night by Patricia H. Rushford. The book was a great combination of romance and mystery and kept me turning the pages.

For two years, Abbie Campbell and her young daughter, Emma, have been in hiding. Then one day a handsome stranger shows up and explains that her parents have sent him to bring the two of them home. Jake Conners fulfills his mission, and Abbie and Emma are reunited with Abbie's family. Abbie's parents ask her to help them convert an old town into a retrea
Strangers in the Night was a good read - a little predictable, but I still enjoyed it. I liked the characters and thought the romance was sweet, though I wish the ending would have had a bit more closure.

The mystery was good and, while I did end up guessing the guilty party, there were still a few surprises in the story and Strangers in the Night kept me interested.

This is the first book I've read from the "When I Fall In Love" collection, but it won't be my last, as I'm really excited to read "

Good Christian Cozy mystery/romance!
Kidnapping, a mysterious disappearance, an artists' colony, a great cast of characters--Patricia Rushford's Strangers in the Night has all the elements of satisfying romantic suspense. Well developed characters drew me into the story and held my interest. Expert pacing keeps the suspense and romance will balanced. A great read for anyone who enjoys a good mystery--especially one set on the scenic Oregon coast.

Super. Super. Great, great read.

I couldn't put it down. There was lots of suspense and plenty of who did it thoughts. I loved it and give it 5stars.

Strangers in the Night was a great read. I love the Oregon Beach locale. Another of Pat Rushford's books that I didn't want to put down.
Full of mystery while creating pleasing characters.
