The mystery was really good and I loved that I was actually able to guess correctly about who the killer was! The case was very attention grabbing and there were many super suspenseful scenes.
I loved the characters and, even though I found Jenna to be a little foolish sometimes, she was still a favorite - along with her dad and Dakota. =)
The only thing that sort of bugged me was how long it took to reveal who the killer was, and then when he/she was revealed, it seemed like it was supposed to be a surprise, when it was pretty obvious by then. This probably only annoyed me because I had guessed who it was fairly early on in the book. I still went back-and-forth, though, about my guess and was surprised that my initial thought was correct.
Still, I loved Too Close to Home and now need to read book two, Don't Look Back, asap. The epilogue was a real teaser! I recommend this book if you enjoy suspense novels with some romance. It was great!
*I did not get this book for review. I bought it when it was free on Amazon Kindle. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
A very good insight into the turmoils facing young vulnerable young girls full of hormones, ambition or anger...
Warning teenagers about the dangers of internet chat and modern technology. Although a little thick on that, how can (even innocent) teenagers still fall for the trap of a career in modeling, with a perfect stranger met on a chat room, in the year 2014, with all the hype the media attach around these sycko stories?
You could almost say they deserved what they got, especially the daughter from the leading detective on this serial teenager abductor and killer.
But without her mistake, there would have been no story.
Although introduced 35% into the book, the Christian connotations go crescendo as the story unfolds, not pushy enough to tamper the story and force a not so "devoted" reader to throw the book away (jumping paragraphs is easy enough) as it gives a "clean" feel to the budding romances sparkgling now and then and tampers down the violence of any crime story (and the body count is of consequence here).
Tactfully phrased, the agenda of the writer is clearly expressed:
* Facts: what cyber crime looks like, what it is made of, how far it would go.
** You are not alone, other young girls have been making the same mistakes, their stories being described along the pages of the book.
*** You are not alone. You are loved. There is emotional support in one of these areas in your life: the love of family, the support group at your church through camping trips (the perfect solution to get away from "reality". The light at the end of the tunnel, the weapon against fear. The faith that you will go to heaven, which coincide with the relationship you have with this God.
My two cents' worth: worth reading.
This book ought to be recommended in every Book List of Teenagers and Peolple Who Love Them.
I do have one compliment and one complaint. The compliment is that I loved that she brought God into the pages of her book. It was not "push down your throat" God in those pages. It was definitely a reminder that God is there, with us at all times and ready to hear and help us. It was very nicely done.
The complaint is a slight one and may be because I read it on ebook rather than as a book which may have changed the format slightly. The story was going back and forth between different characters thoughts. There was no space to show that we were shifting to someone else's thoughts or conversation.
I would be reading along and suddenly I'm into something completely different and it would throw me. I'd go back and reread it only to figure out this was a different character. It happened through the whole book and I found it annoying. Not enough that I was sorry I read it but just enough to make it become tiresome to have it keep throwing me off the flow. A space (even a line or two) would have helped a lot to keep the flow intact. Regardless, I recommend this book and can't wait to get into her next one. As the expression goes, "try it, you'll like it".

Great storyline and characters. Would like to read more of Lynette Eason's books but the cost is prohibitive for a non american
