I love to explore different genres! You never know what you may find, and as in this case… you sometimes find a diamond and are richer by doing so. ~Sheila
In Weber’s latest creation, Lying Close takes you through my back yard of rural Minnesota. Toss in a crime with a smorgasbord of intriguing characters, an accident, a break in and a missing child, and you have a book that will keep you talking about it long after you turn the last page.
Seriously. Find a cozy chair, your favorite snack and beverage and settle it.
Lying Close is the 4th novel by Weber that features his Investigator protagonist, Jon Frederick – however do not let that be a deterrent. You can pick up any one of the book as a read alone (but trust me if you read one, there is a strong possibility you will want to read them all). The smattering of recurring characters are realistic with flaws and baggage and the new ones you meet fit right into that same vein.
I enjoy reading books that take me a different direction from where thought I was going. It’s refreshing to find a read that breaks out of the cookie cutter mold – and that is what I found here. Weber has a way of pulling from actual current events and weaves them in the pages in such a way you will feel that you are a witness on the scene. This is truly a gift.
I hope you take the time to read Lying Close and if you do, I would love to know what you thought. Always up for discussing here, or if you are in my corner of Minnesota, lets do coffee.
