Review: Closer Than You Think

Closer Than You Think Closer Than You Think by Lee Maguire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Meet Bryce Davison, a gifted psychologist who can heal any troubled mind-except his own. 

You see, Bryce's life is falling apart. His marriage is crumbling. His insomnia brings only half-sleep and troubled dreams-visions of dark and buried memories he'd rather forget or ignore completely. And the new female patient in his psych ward just might be more trouble than he's able to cope with.

...and now he has a stalker.

Somebody's been watching Bryce for a long time. Somebody who knows his life inside and out-his fears, his regrets, his greatest longings and deepest despairs. Somebody with access to his most private places-his workplace, his home, his family...anywhere Bryce might have felt safe.

They do their dirty work in the shadows... and they want Bryce Davison dead.

So Bryce has got to get his life together. To save his patients. To save his family. To save his marriage...and his life.

Because no matter how close Bryce gets to the deadly truth, the enigmatic stalker is always closer than he thinks.

Fans of psychological thrillers like I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll, Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine, and No Exit by Taylor Adams will love this book.

My Thoughts:

This book started off a bit slow for me. I wasn't even sure that I liked the MC at first. He seemed weak and clingy. Some of the incidents that he was dealing with were odd and didn't make sense until the story started to unfold. Once the story picked up, I began to like Bryce more. He seemed more confident in his work life than he did in his home life. I felt bad for the young girl being caught up in all of what was happening in his life. The ending was a bit of a surprise. I kind of guessed part of it but there was so much more to the story than I had figured out. I loved that it all made sense at the end but it wasn't overly obvious throughout the book. Overall, after the slow start, I really did enjoy the book.
