    1. Impossible to define, Stranger on the Shore has an ethereal quality mirroring that of The Great Gatsby, which Lanyon acknowledges was an inspiration for this novel. More mystery than romance, this book is seeped in lies, omissions, and illusions. At once a dark, sensual fairytale and a novel of suspense, the story takes us into a surreal world where nothing is as it seems. When Griff, a young crime journalist, visits the great Arlington estate to write a book about the unsolved disappearance of [...]


    2. DNF @60 %. 2 stars. Review posted May 9, 2014This gif will always remind me of Lenore. Thanks for lending it to me. :)My update at 60 % sums up how I felt pretty accurately:A total lack of chemistry between the MCs, no relationship development whatsoever, sex that did NOT sizzle, a mystery that didn't hold my interest (it was clear who Griff was very early on) and too much boredom led me to my conclusion to DNF Stranger on the Shore. It doesn't make sense to keep on wasting my time with somethin [...]


    3. I have no idea what kind of rating to give this book. I might not rate it at all because I'm so severely biased that I can't think with a clear head.Okay, honestly I hated this story. But not for anything that Lanyon did. Background information: I have a 4 year old (almost 5) and a 2 year old. This book is about the kidnapping of a 4 year old child and the hunt for his perpetrator. **Cue psychotic spiral of panic and irrational fear.** No, I'm not a wealthy English-style baroness or someone in t [...]


    4. Written January 24, 20154 Stars - A solid "whodunit" with a romantic touchPerhaps was Stranger on the Shore a bit too easily-solved old mystery, not entirely unpredictable (as my reading buddy Bev soon felt), but I still enjoyed the way to this intricate whodunit novels (pretty happy) ending and resolution. Interesting characters, intriguing plot, a nice easy readIn other words another well written crime story with some yummy gay-men love to like. Josh Lanyon is by now a huge favorite of mine. * [...]


    5. If you want to be VERY original andunpredictable(view spoiler)[and put yourself at the center of everybody's attention (hide spoiler)], you can say- I HATE THIS BOOK.I am not going to be very originalorunpredictable. I am easy.I.LOVEISOK.Josh Lanyon did it in the most ingenious way: He added to his prose, that I admire in any case, the magic of F.Scott Fitzgerald.I.WASLD.I don't want to talk a lot, except: It was one of the best mystery a là Josh Lanyon. It was one of my favourite book of Josh [...]


    6. 4.5 starsYESSSSSS! This book was SO GOOD!There’s so much to like in Lanyon books. And in some, there’s a lot to love too. This one WORKED for me.I’ve been in a bit of a Lanyon kick…4 books in a row…and they were all over the spectrum. So to end it with this one, one that could possibly be one of my favorites, was a treat.I love how this entire mystery was set up. Griff is a reporter who is writing a book on an unsolved mystery, the disappearance of a 4-year old boy 20 years ago. He’s [...]


    7. Spoiler free.There are at least a dozen reviews out there that convey my exact thoughts and feelings on this story, so I'll keep it short and sweet.Griffin felt very human. He was shy in some cases, outspoken in others, snarky sometimes, uninhibited in others.Pierce. Lord help us all against the Pierce Mather's in our lives. Even typing his name is making me fall a little harder.The mystery wasn't much of a mystery to me, but I'm not sure it was supposed to be. Perhaps a little more focused on s [...]


    8. Okay all you Josh Lanyon fans out there time to get your Squee on because this was soooo good! And if you've never wandered into Josh's world before then get ready to Squee just for the hell of discovering it, because generally once you've been 'Josh'ed' you never look back.If anyone can pull off m/m mystery with class, panache and style its Mr Lanyon. Every time I read one of his stories, especially the ones in this vein, I come away feeling like I've just read something timeless. Of all the au [...]


    9. I dunno, people, I dunno.I could easily give this book 4 stars. I like the characters, the romance and parts of the mystery. Also, never doubt it--Lanyon knows how to tell a compelling tale. I pretty much read this book straight through, except for sleepy times, snacks and shower breaks (so annoying). It's enjoyable. Memorable even.But I just can't get over the solution to the mystery of what happened to little Brian Arlington 20 years ago. It was completely obvious from about a third of the way [...]


    10. Oh, Josh Lanyon, how I miss thee.Sure, in 2013, Lanyon released a few shorts and a novella (Kick Start from the Dangerous Ground Series, which I didn’t like) but it has been awhile since Lanyon released a full-length novel. So I was excited when I saw this being listed for publication.Did I love it? I most certainly did!What made this a winner for me was the “Josh Lanyon” formula. When Griff first came to the estate, Pierce (the family lawyer) didn’t exactly welcome him with open arms; P [...]


    11. Predictable but I really enjoyed this one. My first book by Lanyon and sure as hell not the last one!



    12. Josh Lanyon is the reason I got up and started reading at 3 o'clock this morning.The plot was a mystery with a sweet romance stirred in--and as such, it was one of the better mysteries I've read. The foreshadowing in this one was super heavy, so the mystery was a little on the transparent side, but the romance was a lovely, sensual, beautiful story. I loved Griff and Pierce together.Now, let's talk about the writing. The writing in this story evokes a sort of dreamy fairytale--very much an homag [...]


    13. Josh Lanyon inspired is truly a thing to behold. This book had such an amazing feel to it, it was like Josh went right into The Great Gatsby, took a stroll in there, and sat down with that mojo to write a book. As far as a crime misteries go, this was first rate. I was in on it enough that I had a sense of where I was going, but never giving me too much, so the payoff was still fantastic when the whole thing crescendoed. Then there was the romance, Pierce and Griff, were beautiful together. Pier [...]


    14. So I love Josh Lanyon. I think he is probably the best writer of gay "noir" out there. That being said, this book fell a little flat for me. The central mystery was only a mystery if you've never read Josh Lanyon before. The main character's disability was also an expected variation of a trope that is peculiar to Lanyon. All in all it's a good book and definitely worth 4 stars, probably five if you've never read a Lanyon book before. I recommend it to people who want a change from standard m/m f [...]


    15. Fucking Brilliant.This book is one of my favorite Lanyon stand alone mysteries thus far. I have the biggest grin on my face right now as I write this and my children are telling me how weird I am because I am smiling after reading a book. This story was amazing. As a hopeless romantic, I come for the romance but with Lanyon, the freaking mysteries suck me in and I want it all. I go full on Veruca Salt and must have it now! Ugh. Griff, from your taste in books (let's not get on MY love for Gatsby [...]


    16. Sarcasm, humor, chills, romance, and suspects galore!Stranger on the Shore is a cold kidnapping case mystery. Four year old Brian Arlington was taken from his bed in the middle of the night 20 years ago. Never to be seen again. But this mystery is back in action with new questions, danger, and guilt. This is Josh Lanyon at his best!Throw an investigative reporter, a handsome, “highhanded” attorney, and a family consumed with questions together in a big, eerie mansion and grounds—well…you [...]


    17. 4.4 starsMr Lanyon is a creator of scenarios I can totally inhabit. Once again his quiet writing has done its magic with me, taken me inside this world with Griff and live awhile from there and I loved it.I had an inkling of what was going to go down in this novel very early on, in fact I think this was Lanyon's intention. What I had a doubt about was its satisfactory come about. I’m sorry I doubted you Mr Lanyon, you more than ably concluded this story. In fact you had me hooked and I put asi [...]


    18. Reading a Josh Lanyon novel is like coming home. This author is my comfort read and this new release did not disappoint. Yeah, ok, I guessed the outcome within the first couple of chapters, but I usually did the same with those novels by Agatha Christie so I wasn't unduly worried.A great read, a great murder/mystery and great characters. Not too much sexual activity and what there is, is manageable (for me), meaning it's not pornographic.Loved it. 5 definite stars.


    19. Josh Lanyon is an amazing writer! I not only love his style, as I love the plot that he creates. This book is no exception. Scenery, mystery, characters everything is great and enthralling. However, and as it happens in some of his books, there is one thing missing and that I love in the books that I read: passion! Griff and Pierce don't have passion for each other that flame that I love to see between MC's is not here. There is no possessiveness or "hunger" They like each other. The book is foc [...]


    20. This book was a challenge for me to finish. I got stuck at 25ish% and every time I saw the cover on my kindle a sense of dread filled me. Truth be told, if I hadn't gotten it off NG I would've DNF'd it long ago.This is my first experience with Josh Lanyon and I will read something else by this author. Trust me no one is more disappointed to be disappointed in this novel than I.Very early on I got a distinctly The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo vibe that I was never able to shake. I could perhaps di [...]


    21. And that is how you write a mystery. So f’n good and as always, Josh Lanyon just leaves me wanting more.It is not a secret that Josh Lanyon has easily become one of my most favorite authors. So, new book? Release day? Yeah, I had to read this right away. And read it I did. I stayed up way past my bedtime and never wanted to put it down. I got to about 70% or so last night when I forced myself to go to sleep, I woke up this morning and started thinking about it as soon as my eyes were open, and [...]


    22. In this much-awaited novel journalist Griff Hadley arrives to Long Island to investigate the kidnapping and disappearance of 4-year-old Brian Arlington who now have been missing for twenty years. And what a brilliant mystery it turns out to be! Its twists and turns kept surprising the reader all the way to the very end of the story! And it’s almost scary how well Josh Lanyon writes the story in a way that Griff's feelings, his doubts and fears, his expectations and uncertainties, his confusion [...]


    23. 4.5 stars. Low on the romance, especially the resolution for the romance. But the story was compelling, and I couldn't put it down.


    24. It'd been a while since my last Josh Lanyon' style mystery. Changing the tides made me a bit nervous, but from the opening pages I had a feeling that I was being taken for a ride, and I was right. It was stupid to be nervous. 'It wasn’t like he wasn’t qualified. Not like he couldn’t handle this. Not like anyone was expecting him to solve the mystery of what had happened to four-year-old Brian Arlington on that long ago summer’s eve. He was only writing a book.'Or did the idea of this boo [...]


    25. Stranger on the Shore is Josh Lanyon-formulaic. It's what I expect from this author, and it seems to deliver more times than not.You have 27 year old reporter, Griff, who is finally able to investigate into the unsolved mystery of a kidnapped child twenty years ago in the Arlington estate on Long Island. It was supposed to be a seven day project that would be the gateway to Griff's career as a writer. Unfortunately, Griff never expected the family drama that is the Arlingtons, let alone their fa [...]


    26. I love this author! Of course when I saw this one POWW!! Read it!More mystery than romance, great plot, a mystery, and excellent writing, a bit predictable but nevertheless a well worth read!! I enjoyed the pacing of this story, especially the atmosphere of the place; it was like magic,with a vintage feel, like the theme song Stranger on the Shore by Acker Bilk, soothing mysterious, melancholic, but full of love.Arlington estate / Sunken gardens… love this!The romance part was a slow enemies-t [...]


    27. Wow. Loved this! It's heavy on the mystery and lighter on the romance, but that's just fine with me. One of the reveals was telegraphed pretty early, but it had to be. The others took me by complete surprise. I adored Griff and thought Pierce was too hot for his own good. What was with him in that first sex scene though? Hang on to your hats, kids. Lanyon's back in the mystery game.EDIT 5/12/14:Okay, I've been reading some of the other "reviews" and I just need to put this out there. You didn't [...]


    28. So, this is not my favorite JL book. It was okay I guess. It took a long time to get into but it really picked up by the end. Griff was great but Pierce seemed a watered down version of every other love interest in JL's books. I still love me some Lanyon; just not so much this one.


    29. NOTE: just finished a re-read as an audiobook. Perfecto! Made it even better When I saw Josh Lanyon had a new story coming out that wasn’t a short story OR a continuation of his other series, well, I was all over that! *clicked ‘one-click’, auto-buy, pre-order*To tell you the truth, I inhaled this story, and have to already consider a re-read. It was that darn good. And those that follow the author on , well, you might want to take a glimpse at the Dedication *smiles* Anyone that has been [...]
