Review ~ Closure by Angela Ford.

Title: Closure.
Author: Angela Ford.
Genre: Romantic Suspense.
Release Date: July 23, 2013.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Purchase: Amazon

An elite FBI task force tracks online predators while they hunt their prey.

A series of murders in Presario Heights has forced Special Agent Jessica Resario to follow her gut instinct to save the next victim. Supervisory Special Agent Tom Erickson removes her from the case. The only place to escape the danger is her family beach home. She hadn’t been there since her parents were murdered.

The level of intensity climbs higher with her discovery of postcards marked “I Crave You”. Old ghosts, secrets, imminent threats and an inevitable attraction to Tom send her on an emotional roller coaster. If that wasn’t enough, she opens the door to a man she thought was dead. Tom is stabbed and his case files go missing…high emotions put Jess at the killer’s mercy.





What a book! Closure is an excellent suspenseful novel which is compelling and fascinating the whole way through. With the right combination of suspense and romance, Angela Ford has written a great book which had me hooked.

There’s a stalker on the loose, an online predator and really this is an issue which should be written into more books since the online world dominates the lives of so many people these days. We follow Jess through the mystery of discovering the truth behind what happened to her parents and also as she tries to keep herself safe too. We learn about her feelings for Tom and the whole book and character development from start to finish was engaging and done well. I loved Jess’ character – she was strong and brave and easy to like. There were plenty of characters to like in Closure.

I love novellas and I thought the suspense in this book worked really well in the fast pace. It kept me gripped and desperate to see what happened next and the rush in the book was addictive. I really loved that. My only slight negative with the pace comes towards the end where I felt things became a little rushed and over-explained. As a reader, I like to be able to work things out for myself and not be told how to feel so personally, I would have preferred to have seen the suspense extended to replace a little bit of the over-explaining.

With that being said, Closure was still a fantastic book. The first page caught my attention and I read the rest in one setting, enthralled and eager to see what was going to unfold next. Closure represented a serious, real issue which the author wrote perfectly and if all quick, suspense novels could be as captivating as this, I’d be a happy lady.
