Publisher's Summary

Twelve years ago, Alyssa Rossi fled Louisiana under a cloud of scandal and criminal accusations. But her self-imposed exile in Italy comes to an abrupt end when she has to return to New Orleans for the sale of her jewelry company to an international conglomerate. There, she comes face-to-face with Clay Duvall, the duplicitous lover who betrayed her.
TriTech CEO Jake Williams has no inkling that the employee behind his company's acquisition of Rossi Designs is a man obsessed with its owner. Now a murder shockingly close to home raises the stakes as a fiendishly orchestrated plot could cast suspicion on Alyssa again - or make her a killer's final victim.

Cinderella Mystery

What did you love best about Closer Than She Thinks?

This is set in the deep south and shows the values of the elite. The story starts out about wearable art then a long mystery slowly is uncovered.

What other book might you compare Closer Than She Thinks to and why?

As a 20 yr fan of the author, the audio version has prompted me to purchase this book. Author is a good romance mystery writer. Some books better than others. The Hideaway is not to be missed and hopefully soon on Audible. Tempting Fate is a great book don't miss it, even though the reader is not a fave of mine.
Must use the new 1.25x speed to get author's intent.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

This author doesn't have the feel good humor of Rachel Gibson so Ms Bean had to work with humor that was quaint but not hilarious, even our hero mentions this in a scene.

Do not miss Tami Hoags Still Waters mystery romance read by Ms Bean. It will knock your socks off. (I am making this reads comparison to Still Waters, which maybe unfair) Ms Bean does such justice to Sandra Browns Witness another don't miss read.

Any additional comments?

I noticed that author or distributor has opted for a different reader for each book. Smart as each reader has a different style and author has a different rhythm in each of her stories.
I hope they pair Ms Angela Dawe for The Hideaway. Karen White, Christina Traister could also do a great job. For whatever reason, the selected group of readers for author's new audio releases of previously published books are not on my top 5 list, so use a Gold credit if you can.
