From the New York Times best-selling author of Watch Your Back and Did You Miss Me comes the newest novel by "the queen of romantic suspense" (Crime and Punishment).
Psychologist Faith Corcoran is desperate to escape the stalker who's made her life a nightmare for the past year--desperate enough to run to the one place that has been her nightmare for far longer. Both boon and bane, her recent inheritance of her grandmother's old house in Cincinnati offers a sanctuary in which she can start her life anew but requires that she face dark memories that resonate to this day.
She has no idea, however, just how close to home her fears still are...
Two college girls have gone missing in the area, and FBI special agent Deacon Novak is called to work on the case. When his inquiry unexpectedly leads him to Faith, he finds a beautiful and brave woman for whom he can't help but fall. Soon they'll discover that this seemingly simple investigation is anything but. Reaching back decades into Faith's own past, it will shatter everything she believes to be true and will give terrifying new meaning to flesh and blood.

I have not found a Karen Rose book that I haven't loved and I don't think that I ever will, for that matter! Of course, Closer Than You Think was absolutely no exception. The woman sure can write a long novel, but somehow, she manages to do so without the reader feeling like they just finished a marathon read! She is able to capture your imagination so thoroughly that you don't realize how long you've actually been reading or listening!
Karen Rose never ceases to amaze me when she presents new characters. She is so unique in writing her characters, and writes such strong, passionate characters that stand above any other and I love that about her writing! You never have to worry about finding a weak, boring character in any Karen Rose book!
This book has many twists and turns and will keep you guessing clear through the end. The narrator is also a welcome voice to listen throughout and keeps you sitting right on the edge of your seat. She helps keep the book at an excellent pace so that you have no clue that you just listened to an almost 29 hour book!
Overall, I love Karen Rose and all of her books and Closer Than You Think is absolutely no different. I always anxiously await her newest release and try to get my hands on it as soon as I possibly can so I definitely look forward to see where Karen Rose is going to go with the Cincinnati series!
