The Stranger Diaries

This gothic whodunit was blurbed by both Louise Penny and Charlie Lovett. Part procedural, part murder mystery, part campus novel set at a British school. From the publisher: "Clare Cassidy is no stranger to murder. A high school teacher specializing in the Gothic writer R. M. Holland, she even teaches a course on him. But when one of Clare’s colleagues is found dead, with a line from Holland’s iconic story 'The Stranger' left by her body, Clare is horrified to see her life collide with her favorite literature. The police suspect the killer is someone Clare knows. Unsure whom to trust, she turns to her diary, the only outlet for her suspicions and fears. Then one day she notices something odd. Writing that isn't hers, left on the page of an old diary: Hallo Clare. You don’t know me. Clare becomes more certain than ever: 'The Stranger' has come to terrifying life. But can the ending be rewritten in time?"

Dr. Ruth Galloway is dedicated to her career as a forensic archaeologist and her two cats in Norfolk. When a child’s bones are discovered on a beach, the detective calls her in for help, suspecting they may be the remains of a girl who went missing a decade prior. Instead, the bones are revealed to be from the Iron Age, drawing Ruth further into the mystery. Then a second girl goes missing and the detective receives a sinister letter. They’ll have to work fast to determine if a copycat is on the rise. Readers tell me they love the atmospheric, remote salt marsh setting, as well as Ruth’s tart tongue and promising love interests. The fourteenth book recently released.
