About the book:
The FBI has a secret weapon. But now the secret's out.
When missing teens begin turning up dead in a small Southern town, the FBI sends in Special Agent Samantha Cash to help crack the case. Her methods are invisible, and she never quits until the case is closed.
Homicide detective Connor Wolfe has his hands full. His relationship with his headstrong daughter is in a tailspin, and the string of unsolved murders has the town demanding answers. Connor is running out of ideas--and time.
Samantha joins Connor in a race against the clock to save the next victim. And the killer starts to get personal.
Too Close to Home ratchets up the suspense with each page even as love blossoms in the face of danger. Read this one with the lights on!
Too Close to Home was another great suspense read! Having read two of Lynette Eason's newer books (When the Smoke Clears and When a Heart Stops), I was excited to finally read one of her older novels.
The mystery was really good and I loved that I was actually able to guess correctly about who the killer was! The case was very attention grabbing and there were many super suspenseful scenes.
I loved the characters and, even though I found Jenna to be a little foolish sometimes, she was still a favorite - along with her dad and Dakota. =)
The only thing that sort of bugged me was how long it took to reveal who the killer was, and then when he/she was revealed, it seemed like it was supposed to be a surprise, when it was pretty obvious by then. This probably only annoyed me because I had guessed who it was fairly early on in the book. I still went back-and-forth, though, about my guess and was surprised that my initial thought was correct.
Still, I loved Too Close to Home and now need to read book two, Don't Look Back, asap. The epilogue was a real teaser! I recommend this book if you enjoy suspense novels with some romance. It was great!
