Too Close To Home by Tressa Messenger - Review

tooclosetohome-croppedWhen the body of a beautiful and popular senior head cheerleader, Melissa Cooley, is found brutally stabbed to death at the local high school it sends the small coastal community in North Carolina into a frenzy.
To make matters worse…another body is found.
A slacker boy by the name of Ronald Marks is found hanging from the field goal post on the football field only a day later. Pamlico County native Detective Carma Jones, and her partner Harold Green, set out on a search for this ruthless assailant who is wrecking havoc in a normally peaceful community.
No one is safe and everyone is a suspect.
The twists and turns along the way lead them in a direction Carma would’ve never guessed. One filled with deep secrets that were meant to stay buried…
Review: Too Close to Home is a fast paced exciting thriller. I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning and I didn't know what to expect. I thought the twists were great.

Carma was the main character, and I loved her tough attitude. Her own struggles as she solved the case gave the book something extra. I also loved each little insight into other characters. Some of the time I wasn't sure who to suspect until another piece was revealed.

This book was a fast read, and I couldn't wait to find out who the killer was. I enjoyed the side stories between characters, and I loved the small town feel of the book. I think people who like thrillers will enjoy this book.
