Hopefully, above, you can actually see my Instagram pictures! On Instagram you have to swipe to see all the pictures, since I clumped together both my Book Beginnings and Friday56 posts.
Just in case you can’t see beyond the first photo, here’s the Friday 56 sentence below:
Julia smiles to herself, wishing she’d had half the kid’s confidence, when she was that age. Then she closes the door and goes back down to the kitchen, where she turns the radio on and starts chopping vegetables for dinner.
Sassy here: Honestly, when something in a book is that mundane you just KNOW there is more going on that this character doesn’t know about, or is yet to find out… 😀
‘Close to Home’ is the 1st book in the Oxford detective DI Adam Fawley series by author Cara Hunter.
I have just finished this book, and I read it really fast. I found the whole Daisy Mason mystery really intriguing and loved the way it was written. My copy was an ARC copy, so I’m not entirely sure it’s the final version, but I really enjoyed how there was actually NOT any separate chapter breaks. It was all a mix of interviews, police reports, newspaper cuttings in different fonts. So each part of the story was told in different formats and had their own natural breaks. In a way, I think this made it an even faster and quite unique read. I do hope the finished product stays the same for you.
If you like these ‘who did it?’ missing children stories, do read this when you have the chance. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
If you have already read this book, what did you think? Feel free to link up your review to this post!
How can a child go missing without a trace?
Last night, 8-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from her parents’ summer party. No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything – or at least that’s what they’re saying.
DI Adam Fawley is trying to keep an open mind. But he knows that nine times out of ten, it’s someone the victim knew.
That means someone is lying.
And that Daisy’s time is running out…
I can’t wait to find out!
Have a great weekend full of reading. Hope you’ve got lots of things lined up that you are looking forward to.

This sounds very interesting – even though I’m not keen on stories about missing children I’ll look out for this one.
Fabulous! Hmm, found you sitting in pending, no idea why…
Books about missing children are my kryptonite….and I can’t resist. I’ve heard good things about this book and this author, so thanks for sharing. And thanks for visiting my blog.
You’re very welcome! You should like this one then, it’s different 🙂
This does sound like a good story. Thanks for sharing. I am featuring Death Overdue by Allison Brook this week. Happy reading!
Thanks Kathy! I just popped over to your blog, and love your choice, too!
It’s such a shame when the much coveted ‘real’ book arrives, only to be an ARC copy without the amazing cover art of the finished version!
Anyway, lack of cover art notwithstanding, this is definitely one for my own list, as the pre-publishing ratings and reviews have so far been outstanding.
I hope that you enjoyed the book and I can’t wait to read your review.
Thanks for sharing 🙂
I’m torn. I do love how some publishing companies package, and design their ARC copies, but at the same time I also miss out on some of the most beautiful finished covers. You know, with dazzling foil printing and sparkles lol
Quite often if the cover is really good, I’ll buy the finished product anyway. 🙂
This sounds interesting. Enjoy your current read!
Thank you, too!
This sounds like my kind of read. Thanks for sharing it and for visiting my blog.
Great! Thanks for commenting, Catherine !
This is a book that I would really enjoy. I will have to add it to my TBR since it was one that you loved. Thanks so much for sharing it. 🙂
You’re very welcome!
I’m so pleased you’re going to read this, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! Fingers crossed. 🙂
Ooh, this book sounds like something I’d really enjoy! Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend! 🙂
