    Claire O'Toole's life is overshadowed by the unexplained disappearance of her mother, Alana, 15 years ago and the recent death of her husband, David. Another complication is Isaac Morgan, her ex-lover who abandoned her pretty shabbily ten years ago. When she discovers files amongst her...

    Fuck this book. The characters were horrible The romance was horrible and don't even get my started on the mystery. The real murderer was so random that it pissed me off. I like it when mysteries are unpredictable but this was just pathetic. Ugh. Not to mention all the inconsiste...

    If you're like me, hoping (and praying) that this book is about Pretty Boy you are gonna be sorely disappointed. Because Pretty Boy had absolutely nothing to do with Claire or Isaac in this book. Not even a tiny glimpse of him here. That said, the web of mysteries that surrounded C...

    The book had great potential but in the end it fell flat. The romance between the hero and the heroine was very thin and I didn't see that the hero had changed so much that he wanted to be committed to the heroine. However, what most annoyed me was the deus ex machina ending, there wa...

    If you?re looking for suspense, mystery, a little romance, and a fair amount of action, then I have a story for you. IN CLOSE by Brenda Novak fits that bill. The audio version read by Angela Dawe brings the story to life even more. Claire O?Toole has always wanted to know what h...

    All I needed to see was Brenda Novak's name on the cover. I will read anything she writes, even the scary stuff! Unfortunately I started this series with the last book so I came in at the end but I still enjoyed reading it. Did it end the way I thought it would? No. ...

    Review copy provided via NetGalley Why I Read this Book: Inside and In Seconds were such good suspenseful reads that I just had to read In Close. What I Liked: I had a feeling to as whom the villain was but the why was not at all what I was expecting. There are a lot of facto...

    Overall Rating: 4.20 // Action: 3.0 / Emotion: 3.0 / Romance: 4.0 / Suspense: 5.0 / Sensuality: 1.5 // Laughter: 0 / Tears: 0 Brenda Novak: A talented author who displays her skills by presenting a romantic suspense tale that grabs and keeps your attention during the entire book. ...

    This is an excellent balance between romance and suspense. Claire O'toole's husband has been dead for a year; her mom has been dead for 15 years. There's some mystery behind both deaths, and Claire can't give up on the idea that something in the small Montana town where she lives is ba...

    2.5 Stars for In Close My Synopsis Everyone Claire O'Toole loves is mysteriously dying around her. First her Mother who disappeared out of the blue one day when she was a teenager, then her husband a year ago. Are the two connected? Isaac let Claire go years ago, and regrette...

    Why did Harlequin send me the 3rd book in a series for free? The third book! I would've loved to have read this series from book one. Now I just don't know if I will go back and read the other books. Maybe. Maybe one day.. Any way it is a stand alone. This is my first Brenda Novak b...

    If you?re looking for suspense, mystery, a little romance, and a fair amount of action, then I have a story for you. IN CLOSE by Brenda Novak fits that bill. The audio version read by Angela Dawe brings the story to life even more. Claire O?Toole has always wanted to know what h...

    Review copy provided via NetGalley Why I Read this Book: Inside and In Seconds were such good suspenseful reads that I just had to read In Close. What I Liked: I had a feeling to as whom the villain was but the why was not at all what I was expecting. There are a lot of facto...

    Overall Rating: 4.20 // Action: 3.0 / Emotion: 3.0 / Romance: 4.0 / Suspense: 5.0 / Sensuality: 1.5 // Laughter: 0 / Tears: 0 Brenda Novak: A talented author who displays her skills by presenting a romantic suspense tale that grabs and keeps your attention during the entire book. ...

    This is an excellent balance between romance and suspense. Claire O'toole's husband has been dead for a year; her mom has been dead for 15 years. There's some mystery behind both deaths, and Claire can't give up on the idea that something in the small Montana town where she lives is ba...

    2.5 Stars for In Close My Synopsis Everyone Claire O'Toole loves is mysteriously dying around her. First her Mother who disappeared out of the blue one day when she was a teenager, then her husband a year ago. Are the two connected? Isaac let Claire go years ago, and regrette...

    Claire O'Toole's life is overshadowed by the unexplained disappearance of her mother, Alana, 15 years ago and the recent death of her husband, David. Another complication is Isaac Morgan, her ex-lover who abandoned her pretty shabbily ten years ago. When she discovers files amongst her...

    Fuck this book. The characters were horrible The romance was horrible and don't even get my started on the mystery. The real murderer was so random that it pissed me off. I like it when mysteries are unpredictable but this was just pathetic. Ugh. Not to mention all the inconsiste...

    If you're like me, hoping (and praying) that this book is about Pretty Boy you are gonna be sorely disappointed. Because Pretty Boy had absolutely nothing to do with Claire or Isaac in this book. Not even a tiny glimpse of him here. That said, the web of mysteries that surrounded C...

    This one, provided by netgalley, was quite a bit of an improvement on In Seconds, but not as good as Inside. Like Inside, I was hoping this one was going to blow me away, but I felt it didn't give me that same feeling of being run over by a truck, although this was a very good romantic...

    *4.5 stars* Claire O?Toole hasn?t exactly had the easiest life. She?s had first hand experience at loss and heartache. Fifteen years ago, Claire?s mother, Alana, disappeared, shocking the small town of Pineview, Montana. No one ever knew if Alana had abandoned her family, or...

    This book starts out with a bang, but unfortunately ends with a fizzle. The story revolves around the mysterious disappearance of the heroine's mother fifteen years ago. After some fifty or so pages, we already know what happened on that front, some can even have a good guess who did i...

    In Close is the third book in the Bulletproof Trilogy by Brenda Novak. I was really looking forward to this book, I thought it will be Pretty Boy/Rex?s story. Sadly it wasn?t. This book is about Claire O?Toole and the investigation on the disappearance of her mother fifteen y...

    Claire's mother disappeared fifteen years earlier and she has never given up searching for answers. Searching through the cabin her mother used as a studio, she discovers that her husband was secretly investigating her mother's disappearance until he was killed in a hunting accident a ...

    I'm a big fan of Brenda Novak and have liked majority of her books.The first two books in the Bulletproof series were great romantic suspense but this book I was disappointed. I usually fly thru reading her books and this one I had a hard time finishing. Great on the romance between Cl...

    The book had great potential but in the end it fell flat. The romance between the hero and the heroine was very thin and I didn't see that the hero had changed so much that he wanted to be committed to the heroine. However, what most annoyed me was the deus ex machina ending, there wa...

    Claire O'Toole has been through so much with her mother missing for the past 15 years and from the death of her husband, David, a year ago. Isaac Morgan, the man she had an intense relationship with prior to her marriage, re-enters her life. Both of them are in danger. This book is int...

    As a suspense book goes, it was good. as a closeout to a series I was disappointed. No mention of Rex or what he is doing. No mention of Virgil. Laurel and Miles were in there but not one of their kids. would be been nice to at least had small updates. an epilogue. as far as this b...

    All I needed to see was Brenda Novak's name on the cover. I will read anything she writes, even the scary stuff! Unfortunately I started this series with the last book so I came in at the end but I still enjoyed reading it. Did it end the way I thought it would? No. ...
