In Close

It has been fifteen years since Claire O' Toole last saw her mother and even now it still feels odd. Years ago she was just a child and couldn't do anything to help her mother. Now as an adult Claire is determined to find her mother's killer. Everybody tells her to stop searching even her own sister, which proves someone is hiding a secret. Just when she thinks she has found something she learns her ex-husband was on the brink of finding out the real killer before his death. Who does she trust? Claire knows only one person who can help her, but he is a risk to use. A risk because she once harbored feelings for him and now Isaac Morgan seems to be the only one for her. Can she trust him with her findings or is he the one out to get her?

Brenda Novak introduces us to a story about one woman searching for her mother's killer and new meaning to family. We have the story of a young woman, Alana who went missing years ago and a daughter determined years later to have her rest in peace. The love that Claire still has for her mother is strong even among the rumors of her mother's past. Brenda Novak did a great job in showing us that no matter what kind of person she was a child's love is never lost. Isaac is definitely willing to help his woman no matter what obstacles they go through and this just proves what love this man has for Claire. All in all it was a great book full of suspense and action. In Close is chock full of suspense, betrayal and a little romance. In true Brenda Novak fashion there's lots of action. Great job.

Claire O'Toole's mother, Alana, went missing fifteen years ago. That was big news in Pineview, Montana, the kind of town where nothing much ever happens. Then, last year, Claire's husband, David, died in a freak accident-after launching his own investigation into Alana's disappearance.

Is Alana dead? Or did she simply abandon her husband and daughters? Claire is determined to find out-and her former boyfriend, Isaac Morgan, wants to help. Although their relationship didn't end well, he still has feelings for her. And yet it isn't until he starts to suspect David's death wasn't an accident that he's drawn back into her life.

Together, Claire and Isaac search for answers to the questions that have haunted Pineview all this time. But as they soon discover, someone's prepared to kill so those answers won't be found..
