When a Stranger Comes
When a Stranger Comes... - Karen S. Bell

Title: When a Stranger Comes

Author:  Karen  S. Bell

Publisher:  K.S.B.

Reviewed By:  Arlena Dean

Rating: Five



"When a Stranger Comes" by Karen S. Bell


My Thoughts....


All I will say is that this author really knows how to keep the reader in suspense in this 'magical realism, paranormal and  supernatural read.  It was quite interesting seeing Alexa Wainwright born [Gladys Lipschitz] as she 'soared to the number one  bestsellers list and became an international sensation.'


What will Alexa have to do remain on high as 'she vows to do whatever it takes to attain the heady ego-stroking success of her debut? '  Now this is where this story will take a switch as the character Alexa realizes that 'this vow will be tested as she's magically transported to a alternate reality.'


I liked how this author was able to present such a unique magic, paranormal and supernatural read that will keep you on pins and needles taking this read all in.  The characters were all so well developed, portrayed and delivered to the reader. There are a lots of questions that are needed to be answered .... such as ..how will Alexa make it in this world that is so full of loopholes [especially after 'she finds herself in this iron-clad book contract that even changes its wording on her novels?'  All of this happens  after she becomes involved with the publisher King Blakemore... signing a contract Alexa doesn't even remember and why were the people Alexa meets seemed to come right from her novels?  How and why was King Blakemore able to do all the things he was doing to Alexa?  What was Evangelina and Kips play in all of this so important to this read?   Who was in the tale that was truly a big help to Alexa  in understanding her background and why was this so very important in this read? What will happen as Alexa finds herself into a situation she sees no way out of?  What all will come of this reveal as Alexa gets 'a second chance to save herself from eternity with Blakemore and be free?' Now, to finds all of the answers to these questions and so much more in this well written story you will just have to pick up and read "When a Stranger Comes" and see how it is presented and comes out.


In the end after being given a second chance will Alexa to get it right this time will she be able to make a more a more sensible choice or will she make the same mistake again by going after the money?  Well, as this story end at least Alexa has someone new in her life...her dog Trinity who definitely seems to care for her especially after coming back to reality[or was it?] and also having her mom and Margaret back in her life after all is said and done.  What was now going on with Alexa's publishing company that had been sold to Blakemore Media head by CEO King Blakemore and the email that was sent saying "Enjoy your second chance. Make wise choices in this rewrite of your life, milaya moyna." Will Alexa be done with her 'Darkside Trilogy?' Again, to know what this story is all about you will have to pick up "When a Stranger Comes" and would definitely recommend as a good read.


To the author....Thank you for the privilege of reading your novel and giving my honest review of it.

Do you like horror novels? If so, you should check out my novel, Undying Vengeance. So far, I have had great reviews and ratings, for which I am very grateful. 

Undying Vengeance is the first of The Dark Ones trilogy and is a tale of love, loss and revenge. It takes you in to the life of Armani, who is put through great emotional pain and distress and must make some very difficult decisions. The vampires seek out Armani and welcome him, unwillingly, to their clan. 

The vampires in my novel belong to a society called The Dark Ones. They are vigilante vampires who have a heart and love for children. Using their faithful guardian, the great black hawk, they see through his eyes as he scouts out children, who have fallen victim to abuse by evil adults. The vampires are the true heroes.  

Justice is served in this novel and you will find yourself rooting for these vampires as they rescue the helpless children.

The Weeping Books Of Blinney Lane

Sarah Allister just wants a normal life, running her book shop and enjoying the smiles of the handsome local delivery man, Henry.  A normal life is hard to find on Blinney Lane, a niche tourist street in historical Salem, mainly due to the three hundred year old curse that controls the lives of the trapped shop owners.  Sarah has learned to cope with the peculiar phenomenon that occur around her, until she learns her brother is sending his troublesome teenage son, Ricky, to stay with her for the Summer.


Will Ricky listen to his aunt without question or will he meddle in things best left alone, forcing Sarah to lead them on a journey to a land she swore never to return to and to people she has long tried to forget?  The Weeping Books Of Blinney Lane will leave teens fearing adulthood, and adults grateful the pains of their youth are over.  Adventure, romance, mystery, fantasy, and a unique twist on coming-of-age, this story sets the ground for an endearing classic.
