Review: Too Close To Home by Lynette Eason

In this suspenseful tale, Connor finds himself searching for a serial killer. The victims seem to have very little in common. All teenage girls, all pretty, and smart. All recently had a baby. The missing link seems to be in the girls' computers. Enter Samantha, the computer expert from the FBI. Connor and Sam hurry to stop this guy before more girls go missing and the killer gets a little too close to home. Things start to get personal and Connor and Samantha must strive harder than ever to solve the mystery.

This book is the best mystery I've read this year. It's getting 5 stars, and if it were possible I'd stick another star on there.

1: Okay, so I loved Moving Target (my first Lynette Eason book) but this book blows that out of the water. The warning from the blurb says "read this one with the lights ON" and I will admit that I followed this advice. The suspense and the scariness level... through the roof. Also, the emotions. It was a roller coaster of every feeling a book has ever given me. And somehow I didn't cry. Maybe too much shock? I am emotionally exhausted from this book, and yet I desperately want to turn it back over and start again.

2: The chemistry between the characters. Was. Perfect. I just wanted to read more about Sam and Connor. And Jenna. And Sam and Connor and Jenna.

3: Lynette Eason has a way of getting into the villain's head. Like "the Chosen One" in Moving Target, "The Agent" was on of the POVs in this novel. Which was scary... but awesome. Also, I so had him pegged from, wel1 not Chapter 1, but early on!

4: Seeing Connor and Jenna's changing attitudes toward church and God was a special subplot that was very enjoyable.

5: Excuse me, but I was NOT ok with that epilogue. And I don't have the sequel yet, so that's a priority now too!
