"I just finished Eyes of a Stranger. I read several nights until my eyes begged me to stop. I just about phoned in and played hookey from work. I loved this book! When you read emotional scenes between two people and your heart turns over, you know, that queer little ache in the region of your heart, then you know the author has got it right!"

Reader Review from Bonnie Kyle

But beyond a satisfying love story, Eyes of a Stranger is a well-written book. The descriptions are rich and layered, adding texture to the story. The pacing wasn't rushed or abruptly truncated. There is attention to craft, an awareness that the words matter. It reminded me of the way books used to be, when authors were allowed to tell their stories, not just fit some arbitrary page count. And it reminded me of why I fell in love with reading in the first place."

4 Stars.

This book was a wonderful read. The emotions that Ms. Cooper-Posey wrung out of her characters were enough for me to keep turning pages to the very end. She dangled the happy ending like a carrot until the very last page.

It was bad enough that Anastasia had kissed a complete stranger. Fate threw her a curve ball by making that stranger her fiancé's best friend, David Morgan, and ensuring that her body orchestrated its own peculiar responses to him despite her best intentions.

What was worse was David's outrageously blatant campaign to win her over. His technique could hardly be called seductive, so why was Anastasia beginning to find her tastes and preferences--her whole life, in fact--evolving into an endless series of sensuous lessons for her soul?

How could she fight a man who had brazenly declared to the world at large his intention to steal her away from her fiancé? And what did he plan to do with her if he did?

Author's note:

It was fitting that Eyes of a Stranger was the first book I sold -- it was the first book I wrote that really felt like I had achieved a little mastery over novel-writing. It had only taken five books (and two of the previous four shall remain under dust forever). However, the writing of Eyes was an emotional journey that resulted in a novel that I am still, to this day, very proud of.

It was originally set in Perth, Western Australia, but was moved to Seattle, Washington, to give the majority of readers who are North American a setting they can readily picture. However even the final published version of the book had some Australian terminology that crept through the cracks!

Casting the Movie...

I often get asked who I would cast in the movie of my book, if it should ever come to pass, so just for fun:

Movie producer's pitch:
Gone with the Wind meets The Taming of the Shrew.

Casting call:

Anastasia: Marlee Matlin...but with black hair! ... or Catherine Zeta Jones as she was in The Mask Of Zorro -- where she was just a touch more vulnerable than she normally plays.

David: Alberta-born Paul Gross. Hands down perfect. <sigh>

Christopher (Anastasia's father): Christopher Plummer.

Hugh: Tony Goldwyn.
