Don't Close Your Eyes by Christie Craig

In this dark and dangerous Texas small town, Annie Lakes' nightmares come alive when a cold case from her past reveals family secrets that put her life in jeopardy.

Annie Lakes has had the same recurring nightmare for years. Her heart pounding in her chest. A panicked voice, begging her to run faster. Her own bloodcurdling scream. But now Annie is starting to realize it's more than just a bad dream. She's starting to remember things about the night her cousin Jenny disappeared all those years ago. Things that make her believe her family was involved—and what they're hiding is much worse than she ever imagined. But she can't unravel this alone. She needs someone she can trust, someone like sexy Detective Mark Sutton...

Mark has seen enough—too much—to assume that Annie's story is a dead end. It turns out that her family is hiding some killer secrets. A long time ago, Annie was just an innocent little girl who saw something she shouldn't. Now she's a target, and Mark's running out of time to protect the woman he's starting to fall for. But how does Mark face off against a murderer who just may be someone Annie loves?

This book sucks you right in. The mystery is well planned, and the characters are complex and well developed. I really enjoyed watching this story unfold. At first, you really do believe that Annie's memories are just bad memories that a child might have. But as the story continues on and you see how twisted and toxic her family is, the doubts start to creep in.

Mark is a hard character to know. You want him to be the good guy, but his surliness makes him a hard person to like. He is a bulldog when it matters and when he realizes that he wants to trust Annie, he does everything in his power to help her.

The family that Annie now has to contend with is both disgusting and amazing. Her mother is the most infuriating character there is and there was just never a very good understanding of her. At times, I wanted to yell and scream at her and other times, she seemed so meek. It was a strange combination of one character.

I really enjoyed watching this unfold. While the romance was more back burner, the two main characters were able to develop a good relationship despite the circumstances. Also, Mark's partners were fun to watch, and I can't wait to see who gets the next story.
