Close To Home I got this book when Jeff Abbott came to Rockport, TX and did a book signing. So, my book is a signed edition. This book takes place in a fictional town between Rockport and Aransas Pass, TX called Port Leo. Living in this area, myself, made the book come to life in way that was beyond other books. Jeff Abbott, who vacationed in this area while growing up knows South Texas and does justice to the region. His ability to spin the tale while providing all the background details just right had me believing that this was all happening right in my town and I was in the middle of it all.
I love whodunit books and this is now one of my favorites.
Good...but Jordan Poteet is better! Nothing Jeff Abbott writes is poor reading, and this is an excellent book. But his Mirabeau, Texas-centered books with Jordan Poteet are much more enjoyable reading...you actually grow to care about the characters. Wish he'd bring 'em back!Good One A hero and main characters that are three dimensional and realistic, make this an enjoyable read. Good atmosphere and nasty villians keep it moving. Bring on the next one.
