Product Description

From the Back Cover

The FBI has a secret weapon. But now the secret's out.

When missing teens begin turning up dead in a small Southern town, the FBI sends in Special Agent Samantha Cash to help crack the case. Her methods are invisible, and she never quits until the case is closed.

Homicide detective Connor Wolfe has his hands full. His relationship with his headstrong daughter is in a tailspin, and the string of unsolved murders has the town demanding answers. Connor is running out of ideas--and time.

Samantha joins Connor in a race against the clock to save the next victim. And the killer starts to get personal.

Too Close to Home ratchets up the suspense with each page even as love blossoms in the face of danger. Read this one with the lights on!

By Lynette Ager on July 13 2010
Format: Paperback
The early morning call on his pager demands that Connor Wolfe bgin his day much sooner than anticipated. And thus begins a suspense novel which will capture your imagination and creativity with its every word. I found myself scarcely able to put this book down once I had started. It was only a few chapters before the end of the novel that I was finally able to "solve" the crime - and then, of course, I really had to hurry to the ending to see how Eason actually pulled it all together.
Teenage girls are disappearing and later turning up dead and it's up to Special Agent Samantha Cash and homocide detective Connor Wolfe to solve the case. At first glance there appears to be no connection among the girls who are disappearing, but as the investigators dig deeper, they discover a sinister plot of evil and malice.
It is clear that the kidnapper/murdered has too much inside knowledge to not have some sort of police background. Is it merely knowledge from a previous career or are we dealing with someone who is currently inovlved with a police agency as an insider? Eason allows herself nearly the entire novel to reveal that directly to the reader, however there are clues interspersed throughout the novel.
Cash and Connor are well-developed characters, particularly Connor wolfe who is also working thruogh struggles in his faith and what he really believes as well as his relationship with his teenage daughter. When the people being targeted becomes personal, Samantha and Connor realize this is a much bigger "war".
The book almost seems written in two different styles -one where the reader can remain very detatched and you are just reading the story, trying to solve the case.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book by Lynette Eason I have had the pleasure to read, and I will definitely be reading more in the future. Too Close To Home is the first book in her Women Of Justice series and if the rest of the series is as good as this one, you will not be disappointed.

Too Close To Home was very fast paced, and covered themes such as romance, mystery, crime, dealing with forgiveness and moving on from the past. It also covers coming back to faith in God. It was a very quick read (I read it in two days). The story lines were very well written and the characters all very well developed and realistic. It will be interesting to see where the author takes the characters introduced in this book.

This book also contains a twist that I did not see coming at all, but I will not spoil it...you just have to read the book to find out! This was a very clean book, with no bad language and sex, making a great Christian fiction work! I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

Format: Paperback
Homicide detective, Connor Wolfe took the job in his hometown, hoping to spend more time with his teenage daughter and fix their broken relationship, but there's a killer on the loose, and Connor has to stop him. Teen girls are going missing, and then turning up dead, months later. Connor is convinced that the cases are related, but he can't find the connection. The FBI sends in one of their finest, Special Agent Samantha Cash, and she and Connor team up to outsmart the bad guy, but will they do it in time? Maybe, but now the killer's getting personal.

Too Close to Home is the first book in the Women of Justice series by Lynette Eason. This romantic suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat as the characters face one of the toughest cases of their careers. I read the whole thing in one sitting, almost making myself late for a music practice. I just had to know how it would end. Well done, Lynette!

Format: Paperback
Missing teens are turning up dead.

Connor Wolfe, homicide detective with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, has been drafted in to help, & this case has him by the throat. He knows the killings are connected...but how? Then there's his 16 year old daughter Jenna - rebellious & angry since her mother's death - & Connor is terrified she will be next.

There are very few clues to go on.

The Crime Scene Unit finds a piece of paper with an Instant Message conversation on the 3rd dead girl. Enter computer forensics expert FBI Special Agent Samantha Cash. As she tracks the movements on each of the girls' computers she is startled to find there is hardly anything there.

The killer is so good it is terrifying.

Then the killer starts to get personal. It becomes a race against time to find the other girls before it's too late - for the girls, for them...& for Jenna, who has also become a target.

A bombing, arson, shootings, kidnappings, murders...and love beginning to grow - a winning suspense & faith filled story from Lynette Eason.
