TV reporter Kate Bradley arrives in Manhattan ready to take on a challenging new position as a national news correspondent. When a massive power outage plunges New York City into darkness, the disaster she expected to cover takes an unexpected turn. Someone is leaving thousands of mysterious gifts throughout the city, and the only clue to the giver’s identity is the occasional note from “A Stranger.”
Together with handsome TV series host Scott Jameson, Kate must make sense of these random generous acts, which quickly escalate in scale and capture the attention of viewers across the country. In early-morning stakeouts and late-night surveillance, they crisscross the city hunting down leads, but the elusive Stranger is always one step ahead.
Menacing letters and videos addressed to Kate threaten to derail the investigation, but she’s determined to uncover the identity of the benefactor. The closer Kate gets to the truth, the more clearly she sees that even the smallest act of generosity can bring about powerful change. And it just may take her own selfless act of kindness to solve the feel-good mystery of the year.
This was a wonderful feel good story with a little but of suspense, mystery, and romance thrown in. It was he third in a trilogy but can be read as a stand alone.
Kate Bradley comes to New York thinking she “made it big” as a reporter only to be assigned to the political page due to her family ties. When a huge power outage presents a new story – someone leaving anonymous gifts all over the city – Kate decides that this is a story that needs to be covered and tries to track down the benefactor at the risk of losing her new job. While doing so she partners with TV host Scott Jameson. As the gifts get larger and Kate starts to get threatening nets telling her to stop looking, she gets more and more determined to find the story behind all the generosity.
Dete does a great job keeping the reader engaged throughout the book and rooting for Kate to find the story behind all of the generosity. When you find the true reason and see Kate’s own actions, this book really gives you a good feeling about people and the good they can do. The impact these gifts have, especially as they get more and more personal, is so inspirational.
