The Closer You Get

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  They had the perfect plan to start a new life together...before it all went horribly wrong.

A new twisting novel of psychological suspense from the acclaimed author of The Girl I Used to Be.

Coworkers Ruby and Harry are in love—but they’re married to other people. They decide to tell their spouses that their marriages are over and to start a new life together. Ruby has wanted to leave her controlling husband for a while, so she tells him she’s leaving and waits at the hotel where she and Harry are to meet. But Harry never shows up.

Suddenly, Ruby has lost everything. Harry won’t answer her calls, and she’s fired from her job. She finds a cheap apartment in a run-down part of town, all the while wondering what happened to Harry.

Just as Ruby thinks she’s hit rock bottom, strange and menacing things start to happen—someone is sneaking into her apartment, and someone is following her home late at night—and she is going to have to fight for her survival.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Wow!  I just read this over the weekend. One would think that I would do anything else than be inside, however, it was cold and rainy here.  The Closer You Get was a perfect books for the weekend.  Quick read, that you won't to put down.  Crazy, crazy twists that you will love.  I actually thought Emma (Harry's wife) was just a crazy as Tom (Ruby's husband), but I actually grew to like her.  Oh, so many twists that you will not see coming.  Oh my gosh, so good!

You can read an excerpt on Amazon!  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  The real question is why haven't I read her other books.  I just had to added Gone Without a Trace and The Girl I Used to Be to my must read list.
