Hiding Review

About the Book:

A gripping psychological thriller with chilling twists, from a unique new voice.

Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.

This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?

My Review:

This is the story of two families whose lives are forever entwined by a single event. An event that eventually leads to the two of our protagonists losing their parents - at different point of times and in different ways. But the cause is the same. Rebecca on one hand is unaware of the Baye family, Keller on the other hand is planning his revenge. The one event that has already destroyed on generation can destroy another... Will Keller and Rebecca both manage to survive this?

I loved the setting of the Scottish Highlands. I have an obsession with it and is one of the reasons I picked up the book. So, I do have to mention that I wish that there was a bit more description of the setting.

For a Thriller, the book's pace is a bit slow. I understood why the author took the route with her narrative, but it really made the book drag at places. But in a way, the narrative style had an effect on the character development. The author has done a good job with the development by providing ample background for all the major characters. And each character has different shades of personalities. The other thing that I enjoyed about the book was some of the character dynamics. Rebecca's connection with a certain family member was really interesting.

Also, a note this book is better suited for adults. Atleast, 18+.
