Closer Than You Think

Faith Corcoran, #1

It was so hard to put this book down, I couldn't wait to get back to Closer Than You Think and wound up reading it in two days. The words just flowed off the page and will forever be in my mind. This is one of those books that will stick with you even years later. The plot is so smooth and well thought out. The author did a great job in letting you know what was happening and whose viewpoint you're looking from. You don’t know what’s going on until the very end, although you may have your suspicions.

It’s a pretty thick book so it was a little hard to hold, especially when you first start reading it and towards the end. My hands got a little tired and I had to switch up to give my wrists a break.

Faith is such a strong person and I got introduced to a new word when it came to Deacon and his family “Waardenburg”. It’s interesting to say the least. I absolutely loved this book and wholeheartedly recommend it. It was just amazing.

The Story:

Faith moves back to the family mansion after 23 years to get away from her stalker and winds up in the crosshairs of something bigger. Not only does the home she hates with a passion become a crime scene, but it’s full of secrets and memories that she doesn't want to remember. When she almost hits a naked woman in the road on the way back from work she gets pulled into a world of bullets, anger, tears, heartache, confusion and passion. Deacon is one of the leads on the case and is a modern day superhero that catches Faith’s attention immediately. All families have secrets and things that they don’t want the world to know, in Faith’s case those secrets are worth killing for and she will have to use everything she’s got to stay alive and see if she can have a future with Deacon and the rest of his family.
