It's a story of a long lost love, an unsolved murder and what happens when people meet after thirty five years. How times and feelings have changed, or not as the case may be. It's also the story of the consequences of misguided actions and what the outcome of these actions will be. Brilliantly plotted, with startling twists, here is a thrilling page-turner from Lynn Kear. Loved this book, totally sucks you in. The ending was fantastic, a must read for people who love mysteries with a twist! I highly recommend it.
You can’t go home again. Well, you can, but it can be very problematic if someone thinks you committed a murder you’ve been hiding from for years. What follows in Tighter, Tighter is a perfect example of why you should be careful what you start because you may not like where you end. This book has a complex story with different sub stories that weave around each other to create the larger tale. Kear switches scenes between the past and the present without being confusing and gives the reader a chance to see how attitudes have changed in thirty-five years. This is crucial for understanding the outcome of what happens. She includes a lot of details without letting the story bog down and lose its pace. Most people would probably put this book in the mystery category. It’s true there is a murder at the heart of it, but the larger story is about the relationships between people and what drives them to make the choices they do. It shows how the choices made years before shape what comes after them. Sometimes when those decisions are made, you know they aren’t really what you want to do, but they are what you have to do. That was especially true years ago of people who had same sex attractions and that perspective plays a huge part in this plot. Finally, the story is about keeping lies and how, even when done with the best of intentions, that can lead to tragic complications in people’s lives. Tighter, Tighter had a few editing mistakes in it, but, overall, it was an enjoyable book. The solution to the mystery isn’t really known until the end and that’s always a plus.
