At Close Range by Laura Griffin #XOXperts


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.


Scott becomes a suspect in Dani’s murder case. He is determined to clear his name. Scott and Dani team up (in more ways than one 😘) to find the killer. 

These two characters work great together…well, not really. There is a lot of tension, sexual and otherwise, between these two. This just adds much fuel to the fire.  Scott and Dani can be extremely frustrating!  You just want to come through the pages and give each a little pinch and a lecture! 

I enjoyed this read immensely.  This story moves quickly and is hugely entertaining.  You sit down to read for 15 minutes and end up staying an hour. Time flies when you are having fun!  This is a lightening fast romantic thriller and BOY, did I fall in love with Scott. Not only is he HOT….he can even make the reader mad enough to throw something at him….of course, after he saves the day! 

This story also includes some really nice shoot’em up scenes with Scott as the “stud in action” 

Move over Jack Reacher…..HEEEEELLLOOOOOO new book boyfriend SCOTT!

I received this book as part of Simon and Schuster XOXPERTS.
