December 2012 Debut of the Month.
Lots of drama in this exciting Norfolk-based romance with possible murder, damaged people and family secrets to the fore. It is Nora Roberts territory and it's a good one.

Up Close by Henriette Gyland
Too close for comfort - When Dr Lia Thompson's grandmother dies unexpectedly, Lia is horrified to have to leave her life in America and return to a cold and creaky house in Norfolk. But as events unfold, she can't help feeling that there is more to her grandmother's death than meets the eye. Aidan Morrell is surprised to see Lia, his teenage crush, back in town. But Aidan's accident when serving in the navy has scarred him in more ways than one, and he has other secrets which must stay hidden at all costs, even from Lia. As Lia comes closer to uncovering the truth, she is forced to question everything she thought she knew. In a world of increasing danger, is Aidan someone she can trust?
ReviewsIf you're looking for a good page-turner, Up Close is for you. Ms. Gyland wasted no time in getting to the suspense. I'm a big fan of romantic suspense and this one reminded me a lot of some of the older classics of the genre written by Mary Stewart and Victoria Holt. I loved the setting and the author did such a good job describing it that I felt like I was there watching the scenes take place. If you like suspense novels set in England, and not necessary the big cities, this is one you might like to check out.
