I got this book from the Bookswap (RIP!, just when I was getting to know you!). I don't typically read stories like this, I usually prefer dramatic novels, but I wanted to switch it up a bit.

Too Close to Home is about the Langley's, neighbors who were brutally murdered in their own home. From there on it, the story takes us in a million different directions and Whodunits. Could it be Derek, the pervy neighborhood teenager who witnessed the murders after he snuck into the basement of the Langleys? The mayor, who has a bad attitude towards anybody and everybody? Or the college professor who plaigirizes his student's works as his own?

As the story goes, and it goes very fast, we can never really find out just who the murderers are and why. By the end of the book, I was just starting to put it all together- just in the knick of time. This was a fun and quick read, and a nice change of pace for the time being.
