Excerpt


Samantha Cash is the FBI's secret weapon. Her methods are invisible, and she never stops until the case is closed. When missing teens begin turning up dead in a small Southern town, Samantha is assigned to help local chief Connor Wolfe find the killer. And he has two problems with that. There's her faith--in God and herself. And then there's the fact that she looks exactly like his late wife.As they get close to an answer, the case becomes personal. The killer seems to be taking an interest in Connor's 16-year-old daughter, who thinks her dad is getting way too protective. Can't a girl just have some fun?
     

 Too Close to Home Discussion Questions: Lynette Eason


 

1. In the opening scene, Connor is pulled out of bed because of a murder. What would it be like to have a job as a detective or someone who deals with crime on a daily basis? Would you want his job?

 

 

2. Connor’s sixteen-year-old daughter seems to be caught in the middle. He loves his job and he loves his daughter. He’s good at his job and kind of lousy at fatherhood. Do you think he should have quit his job to build his relationship with Jenna? Or do you think he had to do what he did? Without quitting his job, could he have done anything differently to rebuild their relationship?

 

 

3. Samantha has a love/hate relationship with her job. Have you ever experienced something like this with your job? What did you do about it?

 

 

4. Connor is mad at God. He lost his wife, he thinks his daughter hates him, and he’s being thwarted by a serial killer. What do you think of his reaction? How do you think you would react if you were in his shoes? Would you turn away or toward God?

 

 

5. Samantha had experienced a terrible tragedy regarding her sister.  She was mad at God for a while, but she managed to overcome that and see how big God is. Have you ever had anything in your life that you felt was too big for God? Has your opinion about that changed?

 

 

6. What is your relationship with God like? Are you mad at him? Tolerate him? Love to worship him? Why?

 

 

7. Do you think teenagers spend too much time on the computer these days? Why or why not?

 

 

8. What do you think about the plan to draw the killer out of hiding by taunting him? Do you think this was a good tactic or not?

 

 

9. What do you think about Andrew’s attempts to talk to Connor about God? Was he subtle enough? Did he need to be more blunt?

 

 

10. Were you surprised when Andrew died? Why do you think the author allowed this to happen?

 

 


11. Andrew’s funeral service was held in a “borrowed” church. What did you think about Samantha’s explanation of a borrowed tomb?

 

 

12. When did you figure out who the bad guy was? What tipped you off?

 

 

13. What did you think about the book’s ending? Did you like it? Why or why not?

 

 

14. What was your favorite scene? Why?
