CLOSE TO YOU
Shay's sequel to last year's Someone
to Believe In continues to explore the powerful emotions and at times heart-wrenching issues associated with the O'Neil family. Attraction can develop
at the most inconvenient time, and for these characters, it comes down to making serious life choices. Always a dramatic and engaging storyteller, Shay never disappoints.
Having been the subject of vicious gossip before, C.J. worries that the attraction building between them can only cause problems. She needs her wits about her, because both the vice president and the Secret Service agents have been trying to downplay the fact that Bailey has been receiving threats. Are they from a certain terrorist group, or do they relate to events from her past? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Feb., 328 pp., $7.99)
