Hailey Sutter receives a strange letter in the mail. Even though the crime happened years ago, she can apparently decipher the meaning behind the letter. Inspired by this secret urging to investigate, Hailey sets out to uncover the truth of her motherís death which occurred when she was a small child.

Hailey grew up with her father. Her siblings more or less disappeared from her everyday life. As she begins to unearth Pandoraís Box, she becomes more and more aware of how many secrets and lies hide beneath the surface of the truth. Can she really handle the truth? Is it worth all the pain?

Look Closely is an intriguing story that unravels thread by thread. There is more than meets the eye to this book, and I felt the ending was rather unique. Itís hard to write about the story without spoiling it for a reader; however I will say itís doubtful you will see it coming. This was a delightful read, and the characters were interesting to discover. Iím not sure if any of them were what originally met the eye type of characters. Look Closely is definitely an enjoyable read but other than the unique ending, it is nothing truly spectacular.
