The thriller side of the book is what really rocked!!! It is a wonderful suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I truly was mesmerized by the danger. I loved how smart and yet delusional the clever Joanna was. She was the perfect “bad guy”. The setting was also the perfect environment for the dastardly diabolical killer. Rylee was also pretty exciting. She was so intense and realistic… if she got little sleep she was portrayed that way instead of that super hero like cop who can go for days without sleep and still function as if she were daisy fresh. I liked that a lot! I LOVED the humanness of all of the characters. They were very realistic and believable.
The romance was not as strong as the thriller but it was still pretty good. There were a lot of factors in the romance side: the renewal of an old love, the coming out, a sullen thirteen-year-old girl and the threat of a killer intent on destruction of the new family. I loved that Kenzie was a true mom struggling to come out to her daughter and trying to introduce a new person into the mix. As a mom, I struggled with the exact same thing when my child was thirteen (the coming out and adding a new woman into our lives, not the creepy religious and killer stuff lol). It is SO not easy!!! I think Cade did a great job making everything work out positively in the relatively short amount of time she had.
This is a book that is already in my To Be Read Again list and I cannot wait for the second book in the series!!
A woman is murdered in an unusual manner and it is up to Chicago detectives Rylee Hayes and her partner Rich Winters to hunt down a killer who leaves few clues behind. When a second victim from the same church congregation dies with a similar but different poison in her system, the detectives begin to suspect a serial killer is on loose, one who has a specific target group in their sights. While interviewing witnesses and friends of the two victims, Rye (Rylee) runs into an ex-girlfriend from her college days. Will Kenzie’s job as church secretary put her at risk just as she and Rye rekindle the relationship they once shared?
I enjoyed this first book in the Rylee Hayes Thriller series. We readers have the advantage from the first page of getting inside the twisted and sociopathic mind of Joanna Grey. She has a genius IQ and uses it to punish those she targets. Her demons follow her as closely as she stalks her own prey. Think Silas from the DaVinci Code. She is one sick puppy.
Rye and Rich are a good team and work well together but seemed to lose focus and miss many clues in their efforts to solve the murders. The added complications in their personal lives do not help their problem-solving skills. (view spoiler) The sometimes-sloppy police procedural aspect of this novel is off-set by the author’s ability to build suspense. I finished the book in less than a day because I couldn’t put it down. I had to know whether Joanna would find a way to get around Rye’s defences.
The cast is easy to visualize and except for Joanna, easy to like. I especially enjoyed the scenes with Rye’s grandparents Gladys and Omar.
Three stars for the detective work and a solid four stars for the characters, pacing and overall thriller aspect of Close Enough to Touch.
I must admit, this book kept me turning pages to figure out who was next, why they were next & the who, what why and where the killer would be caught. It took me less than 24 hours to read this book. I started it at work and was able to finish it this morning.
If you're looking for romance, murder & mystery look no further! I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel in early 2018.
Looking forward the next book::)
