Today I have a review of Hide Away by Jason Pinter, now available from Amazon Publishing. A big thank you to Megan Beatie Communications for the gifted copy!
Rachel Marin may look like a quiet mom, but she’s fierce and on the hunt to make things right. She is a victim of a horrible crime, which leads her to change her name and move to a small town. She’s trying her best to protect her children.
The former mayor of her new town is found dead, and Rachel gets involved to help. She sees a murder where the cause of death was ruled a suicide. The police resent her involvement, mostly because she tends to be right.
These actions put her in the crosshairs of a killer and the police at the same time. Rachel is in danger, and now she must use her scruples to get out of it and keep her family safe.
Hide Away was so much fun. Rachel is a character you can’t help but love. She kicks it and takes names later. I was impressed with the pacing, and I was kept entertained throughout.
Overall, Hide Away is a brilliant start to an exciting new series with a refreshing female lead. I’m all in.
I received a gifted copy. All opinions are my own.
About the Book:
From the bestselling author of the Henry Parker series comes a page-turning thriller about a vigilante who’s desperate to protect her secrets—and bring a killer to justice.
On the surface, Rachel Marin is an ordinary single mother; on the inside, she’s a fierce, brilliant vigilante. After an unspeakable crime shatters her life, she changes her identity and moves to a small town in Illinois, hoping to spare her children from further trauma…or worse. But crime follows her everywhere.
When the former mayor winds up dead, Rachel can’t help but get involved. Where local detectives see suicide, she sees murder. They resent her for butting in—especially since she’s always one step ahead. But her investigative genius may be her undoing: the deeper she digs, the harder it is to keep her own secrets buried.
Her persistence makes her the target of both the cops and a killer. Meanwhile, the terrifying truth about her past threatens to come to light, and Rachel learns the hard way that she can’t trust anyone. Surrounded by danger, she must keep her steely resolve, protect her family, and stay one step ahead, or else she may become the next victim.
