Too Close to Home by Lynette Eason

Book description:

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!

My review:

This book was one of those "read-in-one-sitting-reads." I have never read anything by Lynette Eason, but I loved the book. It is suspense/mystery, my favorite genre', and if this book is any indication, the Christian suspense authors that have been on the market for a while has some new stiff competition.

From the moment I opened the book, it grabbed me and pretty much held me hostage until I finished it. The plot was interesting and suspenseful, the characters were very likable, and there was a definite Christian message in the book.

This is the first book in the Women of Justice Series, but the book focused just as much or more on the male character, and though there is some romance in the book, male readers such as myself will enjoy the book.

In addition to being a great story, the book also shows the dangers of teenagers/kids on the internet. In the story, a man was posing as looking for fashion models and luring girls to him through chat rooms.

If you are a reader of suspense/mystery novels, check out Too Close To Home by Lynette Eason. It is an awesome read.

Thanks so much for the positive review. I appreciate you taking the time to do it. It's also interesting to get another male's perspective on the story. So glad it wasn't too "female" for you. LOL. God Bless!
