This book is filledwith twists and turns, action, danger, and conspiracy at every turn. I was enthralled from the very beginning. For those who love a great mystery with a fast moving plot and a fantastic story line, this book is a superb read from Ms. Lattimer. I look forward to reading a lot more from this author.

The author of this novel has produced a fast moving and very suspenseful work. The plot has numerous twists and turns and so much action that I barely had a chance to catch my breath. There are some surprising events that change the direction of the story, making it difficult to identify the killer. This is a great read that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Skeletons Too Close To Home is an interesting book with plenty of suspense and filled with twists and turns on every page. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story because I could never quite figure out what was going to happen from one page to the next. eCateraromance
Joe and Michele their first meal after he has been released...he mentions her family:
“You’re right about that,” she agreed, releasing a smile.
“You know, Michele, your dad must love you a lot to let you come back here to live by yourself.”
Again with her dad. Why wouldn’t he leave that part of her life alone? “He does,” she told him, as her gaze wandered out the window.
“Tell me, Michele, why don’t you want to discuss your family? Am I making you uncomfortable with so many questions?”
“What makes you think that?” She inquired curiously, not wishing him to think otherwise.
“Every time I’ve mentioned your father, your eyes always seem to wander out into another direction. Are you afraid that I might want to discuss your brother?”
“What do you know about my brother?” The man just gets out of prison and all he wants to do is discuss her family?
“Just that he was accused of a crime in Lincoln, over fifteen years ago and later was found to be innocent. Afterwards, one of the deputies shot him for trying to escape. The deputy said that he didn’t know about the new discovery. So, he just shot him because he was doing his duty as a deputy and concerned citizen.”
“He wasn’t trying to escape,” Michele protested. She eyed the little food left on her plate, and then faced Joe. “Everyone knows the judge let him go. The deputy didn’t believe his story, so he went ahead and shot him. I was only twelve at the time, but I’ll never forget that day.”
“Was it the same judge that was in the courtroom today, who allowed his release?”
“He acted as if he didn’t know you, but he does, doesn’t he?”
“He only knows me through my father. He and my father were the best of friends until the death of my brother. Actually Willie was adopted. My parents thought they would never have children, so they went and adopted Willie and four years later, mom became pregnant with me. He was like my own flesh and blood brother. I loved him a lot. We were extremely close.”
“So I gather most of that conversation in the courtroom today more or less pertained to cases such as those of your brother?” He spread some more butter over his bread. “I mean it was amazing how you tied all that into the one hearing today. Like something you needed to get off your chest.”
“I guess it doesn’t matter where a person lives anymore. Some places are just never going to change. We are going to have rotten towns and people until the end of time,” she said solemnly. “Some people just don’t want change.” This time her glance cast a blank look. He was pumping her for answers, but why? Couldn’t he tell that he was prying too much?
Joe noticed how quiet she had become. He decided it was time to change the conversation. “So, how long have you been going with Bob?”More questions about her personal life. And if you ask him not to pry, he might think you are just like the town that locked him away.
