Product Description

When Kirby Swallow assumes her half sister’s identity to help figure out who's threatening her, she finds herself in way over her head. On the remote Texas ranch her sister calls home, she confronts a growing list of suspects and a rising body count—all while wearing her sister's 4-inch heels. The only problem is the sexy ranch manager, Seth Maguire, is starting to catch on to the charade. The attraction between them is undeniable—and soon, what starts out as just a one-night stand, turns into something much deeper. But someone on the ranch is out for blood…and Kirby's next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 14 June 2016
By lq - Published on Amazon.com

LOVED this book! Kirby, a police officer, assumes her sister's identity to figure out what happened to her mother. As soon as Kirby arrives, she is treated with disdain, has her car keys taken away, and has her activities closing monitored.

This is a quickly moving tale that romantic suspense fans will love. I never saw the villain coming - it kept me guessing until the very end. Add in a very sexy ranch manager and this story is hot! This is a must read for fans of the genre.

This author is on my must read authors' list.
4.0 out of 5 stars A suspenseful, steamy, and satisfying read 25 July 2016
By Morgan Mandel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Once again, Mari Manning's compelling voice shown through in her latest novel, Stranger In My House. This romantic suspense worked on many levels. I loved the well-intentioned, usually competent Kirby whose good deed thrust her smack into danger. I also fell for the hunky Seth, who struggled with commitment issues.

Suspense-wise, I was totally engrossed, as I tried to figure out the Who Done It. I didn't. The twist absolutely fooled me, which isn't easy.
For those who are into steamy sex scenes, you'll find your share as the romance progresses.
All in all, Stranger In My House came to a satisfying conclusion, with the mystery solved and the characters on their way to a happily ever after.
4.0 out of 5 stars Romance, suspense and intrigue... 19 June 2016
By K S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an Entangled: Select Suspense story which is a new Entangled genre for me. It is another Murder in Texas story from Mari Manning, but they are each stand-alones.

There is romance, suspense and intrigue. Kirby Swallow is a Tulsa cop who assumes her half-sister’s identity to figure out who is threatening her. She tries to stay away from the sexy ranch manager, Seth Maguire, but that turns out much harder to do.

It took me a while to get into this book, but once it got going the story took a few turns and keeps you guessing until the end. Even if you think you know the ending – it still throws a few final twists at you. The cast of characters is very eclectic – you’ll appreciate the furred and feathered ones too.

Seth discovers the charade that Kirby is pulling and almost immediately knows she isn’t her half-sister, Frankie. He isn’t this attracted to Frankie after all. But Kirby has more secrets that are slowly revealed.

The heat factor was good and the suspense was engaging and I always enjoy when I can’t exactly guess the ending. If you enjoy this genre – you definitely want to check these out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great suspenseful read 15 June 2016
By Cyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Kirby has lost everyone in her family but her estranged half sister. When she gets a call from her in a panic saying someone was trying to killer her. No one the wiser they could be twins she takes on her sister’s identity to help find the people after her sister. There are always two sides to every story as she finds out on reaching the ranch that things are not quite as her sister Frankie said. The list is long of those that aren’t crazy about Frankie this should be a cut and dry case she is a cop and solving mysteries is her job.

There are some twists and turns you don’t see coming, I thought this as a fun and intense read. It was well written with some great characters. You have a little of very things here from romance, hot men, family feuds, some things could have been timed better for this group of delightful characters. With all the facts laid out whom will the finger point to or could it all be in Frankie’s mind? I really enjoyed the even pace book that had no trouble holding my attention. I know most will find this as delightful as I have. This is the first I have read by this author but it won’t be the last.

'Stranger in my House' by Mari Manning is book two in the "A Murder in Texas" series. This is the story of Kirby Swallow and Seth Maguire
Kirby is a Cop but not a local on in Texas where she is going undercover to try and help her sister Frankie. Frankie is one of the heirs to a great deal of money and a ranch. Frankie comes to Kirby asking for her help after someone tries to kill her. Kirby looks a lot like her half sister so she goes undercover pretending to be Frankie to try to solve what is going on. Kirby meets Seth there and even though she is attracted to him she is keep her eye on him for a possible person of interest.
Seth knows that something is different with 'Frankie' after she returns from being missing for about two days.
This book does a good job of keeping the mystery going along with the love story.
