    New Orleans!!

    I love New Orleans and really enjoyed the reality of this book. Alyssa was a savvy businesswoman who had really gotten a raw deal! Jake was down to earth & had a great sense of humor. He was at first suspicious of Alyssa then realized she was being used. Clay (her ex-lover) was an arrogant jerk! After all the rotten things he did to her and he actually thought she should take him back! This book had a lot of wonderful characters and was definitely a good read.

    Engaging romantic suspense

    Alyssa Rossi fled New Orleans for Florence, Italy because her memories of her hometown are all ugly after the betrayal from her loved ones. She succeeds in opening Rossi Designs, a costume jewelry business that performs quite well Alyssa heeds her Aunt Theodore Canali¿s advice to sell her company to TriTech and go home as part of the purchase. <P>Upon returning from Patagonia, TriTech CEO Jake Williams is shocked to learn that minority business partner Clay Duvall purchased Rossi Designs. He needs to know why because the small company is outside the obvious profile of his firm¿s core competencies. Uncomfortable with this particular acquisition, Jake gets even more paranoid when he sees Alyssa is a dead ringer for Clay¿s wife. Though a relatively small venture for what TriTech normally acquires, Jake makes inquiries to better understand Clay¿s motive. As Jake and Alyssa begin to fall in love, everyone within their radar has their own dangerous plans that could harm either or both of them. <P>CLOSER THAN SHE THINKS is an exciting romantic thriller that runs on all cylinders from start to finish. The story line is filled with action and romance as the suspense and tension heat to the melting point. Jake and Alyssa make a delightful duo and the support cast amplifies the plot by fostering their own desires at the peril of the key couple. Meryl Sawyer exhibits why she is a New York Times best selling author with this extremely effective novel. <P>Harriet Klausner
