"Marlo Saunders needs to protect her son. With the help of the FBI, she is running from a terrifying past. Starting a new life in Trenton, Maine, Marlo and Gabe soon find peace and friendship amongst its inhabitants especially the town's chief of police Brent O'Neill... Abuse is a difficult and sensitive subject. Ms Brett has approached the subject with accuracy and sympathy. The actions and fears shown by Marlo and Gabe are typical of those leaving an abusive atmosphere. Both characters develop as they build trust but Marlo's fear is never far from the surface. Ms. Brett has written an exciting story that kept this reader enthralled from start to finish."

"Escape from a checkered past leads a heroine to the shores of Maine where she finds a man almost too good to be true. Mix in a measure of fear, suspense, lust and family ties, and you have STRANGER TO LOVE, a story that will keep you turning the pages."
Author Mary Vine
"Reece Brett’s book features two classic character types, a woman in jeopardy and a white knight. Marlo and Brent are likeable characters and you want them to have their happy ending. Marlo’s character matures in the story from an abused, scared and sheltered woman to one who is more confident and determined. Brent’s protectiveness, understanding and caring are all things any woman would want in her man ... Overall, it’s a lovely story of a woman learning to be more than she thought she could be and the man who stands proudly beside her."
