My Thoughts

Confessions to a Stranger is book one in the Harbored in Crow's nest series that is written by Danielle Grandinetti. I have been fortunate to read all of this author's work and each book gets better and better. This book is set in 1930 in a small town of Crow's Nest, Wisconsin. Adaleigh Sirland is trying to blend in and keep her true identity hidden but when she sees a small child fall into the water, she jumps into action. From there everyone is curious about Adaleigh.

David Martins is a first mate and manager to a fishing fleet. He has loved being out on the water. He is captivated with the new face in Crow's Nest. Even more so when his uncle, a policeman, brings her to his grandma's home to stay. He knows she is hiding something deep and wants to uncover her one layer at a time.

A beautiful friendship forms between the two. Adaleigh starts to let her guard down then they both arrive at a crime scene. They become key witnesses when David's father is the prime suspect. Small town corruption, twists and turns at every bend, and a great reminder that God cares for us no matter how bad we think we messed it up.

This is a great kick off to a new series and I absolute cannot wait until the next book in the series. The characters are well written and you will find yourself lost in the story within the first few pages.

Thank you to the author, publisher and JustRead Publicity Tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
