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 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.
#2 Don't Look Back: A Novel
#3 Killer Among Us, A: A Novel
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.Read more ›
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!
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!
