5.0 out of 5 stars Her best book yet!!! Unputdownable!!!
By Stephanie Cooper @firepitandbooks on February 11, 2021
Why is it that I can never turn the pages of Rachel Abbott’s books fast enough and yet I finish them way too quickly??? (My husband dropped his jaw when I sighed and said, “You finished that one ALREADY?”) I had all kinds of theories that I knew would be obliterated in the end! With every book she writes, I am reminded time and time again why Rachel is one of my all time favorite authors! I love how Tom and Becky are third person and one of the characters from the case is in first person. It makes me love the characters so much more! I absolutely love Martha and I felt so protective of her throughout the whole book. Her character is so intriguing. As always, I love reading a little more about Tom’s story. I wanted to jump into the book and throttle a few of the characters. Rachel is such a phenomenal writer that she is able to elicit such strong feelings toward characters in her books! She never fails to make me love some and hate some. She makes them like real people who I think about for a long time. Her characters are like my friends.
Close Your Eyes gets 5 massive stars from me and now I’m sad having to wait for her next book!

Huge thanks to Black Dot Publishing for an advance copy of Close Your Eyes! I always preorder Rachel’s books also because I love her writing so much!
