Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just thirty-five years old, I’ve already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement. I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire. Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.

I went into this book almost blind - knowing only that I enjoyed the author. I'm so glad I went in without expectations because I really think not knowing what was coming made it that much more interesting.
Come Closer is a different book. It's a romantic suspense, but not in the typical fashion. This book is definitely character and relationship driven with the suspense element coming in towards the end of the story.
The unusual setting allows for a very interesting secondary cast and like the main characters, most of them are very easy to like.
Unique twists combined with flawed but likeable characters make this book that's hard to put down.
