Summary: A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel.
Caitlyn Sullivan, a daughter of Hollywood royalty, was already a star at ten, but still loved to play hide-and-seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.
Despite her glamorous background, Cate was a shrewd, scrappy survivor, and she managed to escape her abductors. Callan Cooper was shocked to find the bruised and terrified girl huddled in his ranch house kitchen—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge and comfort, reuniting her with her loved ones.
Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years away in Ireland, sheltered and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul. Then, finally, she returned to Los Angeles, hoping to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn’t yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night—one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance…
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I was innocently searching Edelweiss for books to request when I saw Hideaway was a download now back in late 2019. I downloaded it and began to read (it was actually the last book of 2019 I read). I REALLY enjoyed this book- it’s got a lot going for it.
Now, granted-keeping up with the cast- all the actors and how they connect in the family can be a bit of a pain. But the meat of the story- that’s the good stuff.
What I liked:
This cover could be art.
Caitlyn. She was spunky. Fun. Smart. Driven. Determined. I loved her character.
The story arc of the mystery- I like that Nora writes a mystery that is not super-easily solved.
Bottom Line: While I may be new to the genius of Nora Roberts- I am a fan now. Give me more!
