When eight-year-old Daisy Mason disappears from her family’s Oxford home during a fancy dress party, Detective Inspector Adam Fawley knows that nine times out of ten the culprit is someone close to home. And Daisy’s family is certainly strange: her mother is obsessed with appearances, while her father is cold and defensive when asked. And then there’s Daisy’s little brother, so withdrawn and uncommunicative. . .

DI Fawley is working against the clock to find all traces of the girl, but it is as if she has vanished into thin air: no one saw a thing; nobody knows anything But everyone has an opinion, and everyone, it seems, has a secret to hide.

With a story that feels all too real, Close to Home is the best kind of suspense, the kind that gives you the creeps and keeps you up late, excited and scared.

This book! It’s so good! Why hasn’t anyone told me how good this is? In any case, I am here to tell you that you must read this book!

Close to Home kept me guessing the entire time. Did any of my guesses turn out to be correct? Sure, but I had about 9 theories at a time and didn’t really commit to the actual conclusion until a few pages before it was revealed. Hunter did an incredible job of making numerous red herrings seem not just plausible, but probable.

The characterization was also great. He really hated Masons and just wanted to know what this crazy family was all about. I also really liked all the policemen. It’s not often that members of the police force are this nice in these kinds of books, but here they were. I can’t wait to read more about her. Adam Fawley was a great lead character. Although he had a tragic backstory, he was not a stereotypical, semi-functional alcoholic. He was really a good detective and he was also a good person.

I thought I would hate the non-traditional format with the lack of proper chapters, but it actually worked for me. He kept the pace very steady and made it so much easier for me to continue reading right after I went to bed. I liked the many points of view and the timelines used, as well as the tweets. I think this book helps prove my theory that Twitter is the worst thing that can happen to society (and yes, I say this knowing that I will link to this review on Twitter).

The whole Trial by Twitter thing is so relevant to our world today and I thought it would be really smart to include it here.
The only thing I didn’t like about the book was that I wanted more details for the end. We got enough answers to know what’s going on, but I wish I knew all the little details about how we got there. It was a bit too lazy to fully satisfy me, but that’s just because I’m picky.

Overall, I loved Close to Home. I loved the characters, the writing and the mystery. I’m in awe that this is Cara Hunter’s debut book. It’s so cleverly written and I didn’t want to put it down. This is my favorite book of the year so far and Hunter has put it on my list of favorite authors. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Barry and Sharon Mason host a summer barbecue for friends and neighbors. When the party ends, her eight-year-old daughter, Daisy, is nowhere to be found. From the moment DI Adam Fawley arrives at the crime scene, the lack of emotion and strange behavior of both parents seem strange to him. And as he soon finds out, that’s just the beginning.

Wow, the characters in this book couldn’t have had more skeletons in his closet. The mysteries kept coming up, and just when you thought you knew everything there was to know, there was more. And while you recover from that, even more so.

Cara Hunter cleverly used red herrings, subtle trickery, and well-timed and carefully hidden clues. There were many scenes where I was so engrossed in what was happening that I missed important clues, and each new revelation left me reeling, amazed at the author’s ability to surprise me.

The plot was set in the present and focused mainly on the investigation to find Daisy and memories of the past. The flashbacks used a format you don’t see often, the first one taking place the day before Daisy disappeared and then flashing back. There was often an action in the present followed by the flashback associated with it, which increased my anxiety every moment.

Twitter posts were also launched everywhere, containing grief and well wishes from the public, as well as accusations, conspiracy theories and escalations of violence. The views and opinions were not only frightening at times, but also showed how much social media can complicate an investigation. There are some disturbing and disturbing scenes (given the subject matter, it would be hard not to), but they’re handled sensitively and aren’t overly graphic.
