Following the Mystery Man
When I saw this cover art, I thought it had ALB potential based on the cover. It looked old and the creepy porn glasses on the guy gave me pause. Too bad, because the book isn’t too bad. It’s dated, but very readable.
Madigan Maloney is in a small town living with her grandmother. Madigan’s mother died a long time ago and she never met her father. However, a stranger comes to town and rents a room from her grandmother. He is initially somewhat charming and Madigan is convinced he is her long lost father. Of course there is a darker side and plenty of intrigue and danger as the story unfolds. Of course, nothing is what it seems. I like this theme of identity and initial impressions. Put a contemporary cover on this book and it might go over well in this day and age.
