I picked this book up at the bookstore that I manage – used books are inexpensive and help support my church. However, Book One is available on Amazon Kindle for FREE (as of 6/10/14) here.
Too Close To Home
by Lynette Eason
Book 1 of the Women of Justice Series
Revell – Fiction-Romantic Suspense
FBI Special Agent Samantha (Sam) Cash is an expert with computers. She can track down anyone online, especially online predators. When missing teenage girls start showing up dead and a serial killer is suspected, homicide detective Connor Wolfe is assigned the case and finds there may be a chatroom link and needs Sam’s expertise to tract him down. Meanwhile, Connor’s teenage daughter is causing problems at home in an effort to get her widowed workaholic father’s attention. Once the killer discovers who is pursuing the case and getting close to answers, he turns his attention to Sam and Connor and their loved ones. As the situation begins to escalate, can they save the next victim and find the killer?
I am such a huge fan of romantic suspense that I read this book in one night! I lost precious sleep but I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I actually guessed some of the plot points almost immediately but was pleasantly surprised to discover that I never guessed who the killer was. Eason is a great writer and I definitely feel this book would appeal to guys and girls alike. The pacing was perfect – I almost felt like I was reading a movie script. The characters were well written and pretty realistic. There was some parts that didn’t make as much sense or were underdeveloped but they didn’t take away from the story – I still enjoyed this thrilling story.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys clean romantic suspense.
