Closure
by Angela Ford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There’s a huge number of books on my TBR list and I’ve wanted to read Closure for the longest time.

Jess is an FBI agent who’s hunting down an internet stalker. The stalker nearly kills her but she escapes and takes refuge at her old family summer house. She’s strong in every aspect of her work life but she hides and keep people away from her personal life. She’s afraid of losing the ones she cares about because the trauma in her past just won't let go of her.

She’s secretly in love with her boss, Tom, but she doesn’t make a move until later on in the book. (Romance is a subplot while the action and mystery takes front seat, which is awesome because, lately, I’ve been bored with strictly romance books.) Anyway, Tom has feelings for her as well but he doesn’t act on them right away. The internet stalker and endangered teenagers plot takes precedence over most everything else. This is a workplace romance (boss/employee) so I was glad to see that they acted appropriately with one another in front of other people.

This story is fast-paced and compelling with great, well-rounded characters. Jess is determined to find out the truth about her parents' death, her personal stalker and she wants nothing more than to stop a predator. Tom has his own problematic past (failed marriage and a rebellious daughter) but he works through it as Jess comes to turns with hers. These characters are flawed humans and it makes the reader root for them because of their pain and mistakes. They help each other as friends and once their friendship moves into romance—WOW. I love this couple!

I love FBI/government romantic suspense and this book didn’t disappoint. I highly recommend this debut novel from Angela Ford.
