Despite my best efforts, once in a while I end up with a book that (unbeknownst to me) is part of a series. Such was the case with The Stranger’s Wife. Neither the book summary nor the cover gives any indication of it, but this is the third book in the Detective Dan Riley series. I wish I’d known that before I started reading it. Even though this book seems to have more of a standalone feel, I still know things I wouldn’t have known if I’d read the previous books first—which is precisely why I try to avoid reading a series out of order.
That said… how did it affect my reading experience?
