(42)Stay Close by Harlan Coben

Stay Close

Publication Date: March 20, 2012
Pages: 400

In his new book, Stay Close, Superstar Author, Harlan Coben, steps away from his go-to guy, Myron Bolitar to bring us this fabulous stand alone novel.

Megan Pierce has what many would consider the perfect life.  She has two wonderful kids and is married to a successful attorney.  Their life is a good one.  Megan has worked hard to create this life for her family and forget her shady past.   Unfortunately on the anniversary of a night she would like to forget, the night her boyfriend was murdered and the night she stopped being Cassie and started being Megan, another man is missing.  Megan feels like she needs to come forward, but only if her identity will remain secure.  But before she knows it things spiral out of control.  Threatening her family and the life she has created.  Will she be able to trust old friends long enough to find the real killer?

Harlan Coben is one of the most talented authors of our times.  He knows how to draw the readers into his world and his characters are so three dimensional it feels as if you *know* them.  I really enjoyed reading about Megan, she is  your typical suburban housewife, but has a past so secret that if the truth were revealed it would shatter her life.  I loved seeing her revisit her past and her old friends.  The story is fast paced and just when you think you have it figured out, Coben throws in a twist that will shock you.

Bottom line, Stay Close, is going to be another blockbuster that his loyal fans will love. The characters are wonderful and the story will draw you in just like always.  Fans of Harlan Coben will be pleased and if you have never read his books, you will be in for a treat.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
