    1. 4.5, Roza with a "zed" stars.Lost my original review. So this is a rehash of it.Loved Deacon Novak. Anne OK's review brought this book to my attention and I really liked it.Psychologist Faith Corcoran is desperate to escape the stalker who’s made her life a nightmare for the past year—desperate enough to run to the one place that has been her nightmare far longer.

When I saw Closer Than You Think was about to be released and it was also start of a new series, I just HAD to read it. This story has more twists and turns and kept me guessing as to who [...]

    3. 2.5-starsSuspense? Yes. The primary plot of catching the serial killer and solving decades old mysteries was an interesting part of the story, but it was often disrupted by repetitive information and unnecessary drama. Romance? Meh. Deacon’s first appearance stood out, but his character quickly bored me. Faith was too perfect to be true. The explicit sex scenes were more like cheesy fillers in the story. A proliferation of characters, contrived subplots and inconsequential details made this bo [...]

    4. This story was a whopping 28 hours longd I couldn't stop listening. Psychologist Faith Cochran has changed her identity to escape a stalker who happens to be a serial rapist. He's her former patient and now it appears he's out to kill her. When she returns to her hometown in Cincinnati, total chaos erupts, all unforeseen. FBI Special Agent Deacon Novak has moved back home to Cincinnati from Baltimore to care for his troubled teenage brother. He's assigned to a joint task force with the agency an [...]

    5. Closer Than You Think is the first in the new series from Karen Rose featuring Faith Corcoran as a central character. This was also my first Karen Rose book read ever (I know, how shameful being a crime addict!) so I was expecting to get blown away. Well I wasn't. I really liked this book but it was not the five star read I had been expecting from this highly praised author.Let me explain once we get past the blurbDeacon Novak has returned home. The experienced FBI Agent knows that his move to C [...]

    6. Just when I think I've got the baddie nailed, something pops up and puts them off the list. Kinda like Wack-A-Mole, except with the baddie, they just keep popping back up as suspects. At times I thought she threw it all in a blender just to see what came out. Characters, motives and victims all mixed up and coming out completely different than you thought it would. This one drove me crazy. Everything is up for grabs, except who the intended victim is and who the hero is. Because Karen Rose write [...]

    7. And yet again, Karen Rose delivers a total thrill ride in her latest and the beginning of a brand new series. Absolutely outstanding!Faith is an amazingly strong and smart heroine. She's had a rough ride for the last few years, and she hasn't run far enough yet to escape more of the same pulse-pounding suspense and spine-tingling acts of criminal injustice from the deranged psychopath who is hot on her trail to exact pain and revenge. Deacon, the FBI agent and hero, is absolutely one of the best [...]

    8. The story begins when we meet Psychologist Faith Corcoran. Faith is on the run from a serial stalker. One who has made numerous attempts on her life. Faith inherits her grandmother's old homestead, and the timing couldn't be better. She changes her name, sells her car and leaves her old life behind. She Relocates to Cincinnati taking a position outside of her profession in hopes to begin anew. But TROUBLE is following her, and she is in more danger than she knows. When she almost hits a naked wo [...]

    10. I know many say these books are very long but I loved it and listened to it in just over a week - 23 hours! As I had read #3 the characters were familiar and I did not have difficulty following them, even if I hadn't been introduced to them I think I would have coped.What a suspense, oh my the body count was horrific. The characters were great and the best of it I have the next book on my shelf to read this time. I thought the narrator was so-so, no character differentiation, however she didn't [...]

    11. ARC generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review RATING ~ 4.25 Stars.The story follows Dr. Faith Corcoran and the FBI Agent Deacon Novak in their investigation to find the missing girls in town of Cincinnati. Faith: Deacon: Dr. Faith Corcoran is a thirty-two year psychologist or she was until her she got a stalker who made several attempts on her life. Faith used to be a therapist to criminals until one of them decides to stalk her. Fed up that the local po [...]

    12. No rating. I got to 8% which is 55 pages considering this book is 688 pages, and I couldn't read anymore. Too brutal, too much in the killer's POV and dragging on too long. Not for me.

    13. A woman stalked by a serial killer and a tough FBI agent head up this thrilling, twisty, dark suspense tale and I was on the edge of my seat for most of the story. This book had so much going on and so many suspects and chilling moments along with some serious scorching bedroom action that I do believe I've found a new author and series to pursue.Story opens with Faith Corcoran fleeing Miami to get a fresh start away from a bad reputation that wasn't earned, a cheating ex, but most especially a [...]

    14. Karen Rose is my favourite romantic suspense writer and I've read most of her books. I absolutely loved this one and it's my new favourite, although she's had some really good ones. The balance of suspense and romance is just perfect and the suspense part had me on my toes. I thought it was really clever (I'm not going to say why as that would spoil it and you will have to read it to figure it out) and I didn't guess anything till I was supposed to. I waivered a lot changing my mind so many time [...]

    15. DNF @80%.This was one very long ass story. I didn't really care about the whodunit after page 500 (only 73% of the book). Everybody just talked too much, about the same things over and over. Very tiring. And the hero's family drama was kinda unnecessary IMO. Two family drama in one suspense book makes it too much. So tired, can't even rant proper. Karen Rose, me won't read you again.

    16. This book has to be my favourite Karen Rose book, and I have read them all. I always like her characters, but this time she outdid herself. Faith was strong without being stupid, Deacon was wonderfully different, and the whole cast of secondary characters fulfilled the roles they had been given. This author doesn't hide from the minds of some very disturbed individuals, and I appreciate that. It helps me become fully engrossed in the whole story.This book has a lot of pages, and I loved every on [...]

    17. Faith Corcoran is on the run. Forced to change her name to escape a stalker who seems hell bent on killing her she has returned to the house that blighted her childhood and still brings chills all these years later . With a sense of dread Faith goes to the house she has recently inherited but the nightmares of her past fail to compare to the horror that awaits her, Someone has been very busy kidnapping and torturing young women and when Faith discovers a tortured and traumatised young woman she [...]

    18. This book in listed as number 16 in Karen Rose's Romantic Suspense series and number 1 in her Cincinnati series. Psychologist Faith Corcoran changes her name and leaves Miami in hopes of escaping the man who is trying to kill her. She returns to her childhood home in Mt. Carmel, Ohio, near Cincinnati. Her grandmother died about a month before and she inherited the grand family estate there. It is her intention to go ahead and move into the house, at least until she decides if she wants to sell i [...]

    19. 4.25/5 stars. Karen Rose writes an amazing romantic suspense book. This bookkept my attention for the whole 28 hours and 36 minutes of the audio performance (at 2x speed); I was kept guessing who the villain is even though the book's title is already the first clue. The experience is enhanced with superb audio performance by Hillary Huber. If you are like me, a fan of romance and gritty thrillers, a fan of John Sandford's Lucas Davenport series, be sure to check out this author. Happy reading! H [...]

    20. 4.5 stars. I loved it! Great characters and a terrific plot with lots of twist & turns and a bad guy I couldn't guess ahead of time, which is rare. Hell, I suspected almost everybody *who wasn't law enforcement* at one point.I love finding a new favorite series and I look forward to reading more of this one!

    21. I am sorry but this is definitely one those "it's me, not the book" case. I thought the first few chapters was really intriguing. I had to read it fast to find out what happens next. The bodies kept on piling. Who dun it? But the next thing I know, it dragged. It was too long. The book and I just didn't click and no one's fault but mine. :(

    22. 'Closer Than You Think' is the start of a brand new series. Karen Rose does mention and use past characters. However it is much less confusing than the more recent books. I did not feel I had to work out who was who, which was a relief.The book was about Faith Corcoran, a woman who has had to change her identity to escape a stalker. She used to work with dangerous offenders and had to leave her job after her life was threatened. She has little faith in the police, after being bad mouthed by her [...]

    23. HELLA awesome read! I didn't think that KR could top her last book, but this being Superhero's Deacon's book I should have known. I loved Deacon and Faith as a couple and even though the start of the romance took place over a relatively short period of time, it didn't feel false. The body count was high as usual, but the difference this time, is we have some really strong women come out of this whole ordeal and one special little girl. I hope that Marcus was a set up for Sophie. Heck maybe even [...]

    24. Még, még, még!Egyszerűen nem igazság, hogy csak úgy abbahagyják a sztorit, amikor a fő-főgonosz megbűnhődött. Pláne most, elfogytak a KR könyvek, és őszig nem is reménykedhetek újban. :(KR megint megcsinálta. Az elején kiböktem, hogy biztos ez lesz a gyilkos (már csak a cím alapján is), de Karen hamar kilőtte, majd sorban utána minden tippemet is. A végén már ott tartottam, hogy az apja biztos nem lehet, de akkor ki. Erre a végén ki volt a gyilkos, na ki? Hát pers [...]

    25. The end of this audiobook was indeed closer than I thought because I'm pulling the plug with 19 hours left in this 28.5 hour(!) gasfest. This has to be the slowest moving, most painfully detailed, boring "thriller" ever written. I don't give a sh*t what happens to Faith, Deacon, the crazy stalker, or any of the characters because it is clearly going to bore me to tears before I find out. I think that even if there is an abridged version, that version will need an abridgment. Very few books deser [...]

    26. After fighting him tooth and nail, she’d finally begun to scream. She had the most remarkable threshold for pain. He’d be able to play with her for a long, long time.Karen Rose brings us Closer Than You Think, a creepy, disturbing thriller that will have readers painstakingly piecing together the many layers of this well-crafted plot.I picked this up because I liked the sound of the blurb - a crazy stalker, a big old house with bad memories, girls going missing - and who doesn't love a good [...]
