This was a cute good read.

Zahra moves to the small town of Blackmount after the murder of her grandfather and its up to Kendall who is sheriff to find his murderer. After a rough first meet up, these two are soon heating up these pages...this was definitely a slow burn romance that the author did really well with. There was a bit of push and pull between Zahra and Kendall. When Zahra left her previous life behind, she left a nagging mother and extremely annoying ex-fiancé so she didn’t take take to well to Kendall when wanted her to do certain things... like protect her AND do his job but boy did this lady make shit hard, lols. I was reading like damn woman, I know you left some shit back there in the city but my goodness! 
I do however think this couple had good chemistry and flowed well together easily in this story. I liked them.

Now the plot was good as well and not really all that complicated. I wasn’t sure who was after Zahra initially but figured that was a good thing. Cause you don’t want to know the who done it all early in a suspense plot. I think the author did a good job of balancing the suspense and romance BUT there were some lags here and there especially as we got to know people in the town and Kendall’s family. And I don’t necessarily think that knowing about other people is a bad thing but in this case, I just feel like at times some characters/scenes had too much focus...if that make sense. Simply...in Closer To You, the suspense of the murder and finding out who was after Zahra at times got drowned out and the story was bogged down with unnecessary details.

At the end of it all, Closer To You was good and I enjoyed the story. I’m looking forward to reading more of Ms. Lister’s work. If you have a love for good romantic suspense, add this one to your read list.
