Review & Giveaway: AT CLOSE RANGE by Laura Griffin

 When her investigation brings them together, 
the sparks between them quickly get out of control.

A Tracers Novel 
Laura Griffin
Releasing Jan 31st, 2017
Pocket Books

New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin “delivers the goods” (Publishers Weekly) again with the eleventh title in the gritty, heart-pounding Tracers series.

When a lakeside tryst ends in a double murder, police detective Daniele Harper arrives on the scene determined to get answers. Clues are everywhere, but nothing adds up. Dani turns to the Delphi Center crime lab for help, but soon regrets it when her secret attraction to their chief firearms examiner threatens to distract her from the most important case of her career.

As a ballistics expert and former Navy SEAL, Scott Black knows firearms, and he knows he can help Dani unravel her case. Scott has managed to hide his interest in his best friend’s younger sister for years, but when her investigation brings them together, the sparks between them quickly get out of control. Scott resolves to keep his hands off Dani and his eyes on the goal—identifying a killer. But when that killer zeroes in on Dani, all bets are off. There isn’t a line Scott won’t cross to convince Dani to trust him so that he can help her take down a ruthless murderer who has her in his sights.


AT CLOSE RANGE is the 11th book in the Tracers series and it was everything I expected from Griffin and more. Her heart stopping series is full of action, sexy and keeps me coming back for more every single time.

Dani and Scott had chemistry from the very beginning. I love the trope of falling in love with your best friends sister and Griffin not only gave them a HEA but she gave them just enough drama that kept me on the edge of my seat. Dani had been crushing on Scott for a long time and frankly I could see the appeal. Scott was badass yet he had s soft spot for Dani.

Dani and Scott end up working a case together and Scott becomes a suspect. Ouch. Dani is set out to find out if Scott really guilty but Scott is looking to clear his own name. The closer they get to the truth and who is behind the murders Dani and Scott get closer and the danger is intense.

Griffin's Tracers series is everything I love in a romantic suspense. I couldn't get enough of Scott and Dani and felt their romance was explosive. While it took a while for the romance to get going it was definitely worth the wait. I want to say I read this series for the romance but the truth is I read it for the suspense. Griffin has a way with words and her stories feel like movies. Each story could be read as a standalone but starting from the beginning will keep you hooked. Each story is different yet memorable.
