Too Close To Home by Tressa Messenger

Too Close To Home3 Stars from me

This book is ok, it’s a fast read, it doesn’t require much in the way of thinking and it’s a classic whodunnit.

However, for me, it was just a little bit lacking in originality – I found it reasonably predictable.

I also found the gratuitously sexual descriptions a bit naff and pointless.

Having said all that, if you are looking for an easy holiday read I recon it would be ideal.

Synopsis: When the beautiful blond senior head cheerleader, Melissa Cooley, is found stabbed to death on a teacher’s desk in the local high school this small coastal town nestled on the east coast of North Carolina goes into frenzy. To make matters worse another body of slacker boy, Ronald Marks, is found hanging from the field goal post 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 causing so much havoc in her peaceful home town. No one is safe and everyone is a suspect. The twists and turns along the way lead them in a direction Carma would never have guessed with deep secrets meant to stay buried. Will she be too late to stop the real murder from killing again?
