Book Review: Too Close to Home by Lynette Eason

"'Excuse me, Connor Wolfe?'

He looked up. Blinked. Swallowed hard. Sam could have sworn his face lost a couple of shades of color as he gave her the once-over. 'Huh?'

'Connor Wolfe?' she repeated.

Sam started to squirm under his avid scrutiny. Without taking his eyes from her face, he said, 'Oh, yeah. That's me. Hang on a sec.'

He looked over his shoulder at another detective one desk over who Sam recognized. 'Hey, Andrew, when's that computer geek supposed to be here? Doesn't she realize we got murders to solve and kinds to find?'

Computer geek? Samantha gaped at him.

Andrew chocked on the sip of water he'd just taken, then sputtered, 'Uh, Connor, when you pull your foot out of your mouth, you might want to use it to kick yourself in the rear before you introduce yourself to the computer geek.'

Andrew pointed at her.

Samantha narrowed her eyes and gave Connor a tight smile. 'Special Agent Samantha Cash. I was asked to come in and look at some computers?'" Too Close to Home, pg 36.

Homicide detective, Connor Wolfe took the job in his hometown, hoping to spend more time with his teenage daughter and fix their broken relationship, but there's a killer on the loose, and Connor has to stop him. Teen girls are going missing, and then turning up dead, months later. Connor is convinced that the cases are related, but he can't find the connection. The FBI sends in one of their finest, Special Agent Samantha Cash, and she and Connor team up to outsmart the bad guy, but will they do it in time? Maybe, but now the killer's getting personal.

Too Close to Home is the first book in the Women of Justice series by Lynette Eason. This romantic suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat as the characters face one of the toughest cases of their careers. I read the whole thing in one sitting, almost making myself late for a music practice. I just had to know how it would end. Well done, Lynette!
