Review: Closer Than You Think by Karen Rose

Closer Than You Think - Karen Rose

 

I received a free copy of Closer Than You Think from the publisher in return for an honest review.

 

I would happily give this one 5 stars if it wasn't for the speed at which the MC fell for the FBI agent that was on her case. I found that part of the story totally unbelievable, along with the reactions of the detectives, and other people involved in solving her case, towards said relationship. They all accepted it way too easily when it's a huge no no to get involved in circumstances like this.

 

I particularly liked being able to experience both sides of the story. The parts that cover the killers POV were very well done and added a lot to the over all feeling of tension and suspense to the book. Karen Rose is one of the few authors who keeps me guessing almost right to the end . I can even tolerate the romance that is always included in her books, which alone is testament to how well she manages to pull the reader in as I usually hate romance in all forms in books.

 

Closer Than You Think is, in my opinion, Rose's best book so far. At 690 pages it's a lot of reading and I have to admit I put off reading it for a bit because of how big the book is. Little did I know that I would get so sucked into the storyline that I would read all 690 pages in one day.

 

Definitely one I would recommend.
