    3. 2.5 starsSuspense Yes The primary plot of catching the serial killer and solving decades old mysteries was an interesting part of the story, but it was often disrupted by repetitive information and unnecessary drama Romance Meh Deacon s first appearance stood out, but his character quickly bored me Faith was too perfect to be true The explicit sex scenes were like cheesy fillers in the story A proliferation of characters, contrived subplots and inconsequential details made this book an exhausti [...]

    13. A woman stalked by a serial killer and a tough FBI agent head up this thrilling, twisty, dark suspense tale and I was on the edge of my seat for most of the story This book had so much going on and so many suspects and chilling moments along with some serious scorching bedroom action that I do believe I ve found a new author and series to pursue.Story opens with Faith Corcoran fleeing Miami to get a fresh start away from a bad reputation that wasn t earned, a cheating ex, but most especially a d [...]

    15. DNF 80%.This was one very long ass story I didn t really care about the whodunit after page 500 only 73% of the book Everybody just talked too much, about the same things over and over Very tiring And the hero s family drama was kinda unnecessary IMO Two family drama in one suspense book makes it too much So tired, can t even rant proper Karen Rose, me won t read you again.

    16. This book has to be my favourite Karen Rose book, and I have read them all I always like her characters, but this time she outdid herself Faith was strong without being stupid, Deacon was wonderfully different, and the whole cast of secondary characters fulfilled the roles they had been given This author doesn t hide from the minds of some very disturbed individuals, and I appreciate that It helps me become fully engrossed in the whole story.This book has a lot of pages, and I loved every one of [...]

    21. I am sorry but this is definitely one those it s me, not the book case I thought the first few chapters was really intriguing I had to read it fast to find out what happens next The bodies kept on piling Who dun it But the next thing I know, it dragged It was too long The book and I just didn t click and no one s fault but mine.

    22. Closer Than You Think is the start of a brand new series Karen Rose does mention and use past characters However it is much less confusing than the recent books I did not feel I had to work out who was who, which was a relief.The book was about Faith Corcoran, a woman who has had to change her identity to escape a stalker She used to work with dangerous offenders and had to leave her job after her life was threatened She has little faith in the police, after being bad mouthed by her ex On inher [...]

    23. HELLA awesome read I didn t think that KR could top her last book, but this being Superhero s Deacon s book I should have known I loved Deacon and Faith as a couple and even though the start of the romance took place over a relatively short period of time, it didn t feel false The body count was high as usual, but the difference this time, is we have some really strong women come out of this whole ordeal and one special little girl I hope that Marcus was a set up for Sophie Heck maybe even Stone [...]

    25. The end of this audiobook was indeed closer than I thought because I m pulling the plug with 19 hours left in this 28.5 hour gasfest This has to be the slowest moving, most painfully detailed, boring thriller ever written I don t give a sh t what happens to Faith, Deacon, the crazy stalker, or any of the characters because it is clearly going to bore me to tears before I find out I think that even if there is an abridged version, that version will need an abridgment Very few books deserve to be [...]
