Review of No Place To Hide – Susan Lewis

no plce to hide

Justine is running from the past and needs a fresh start.   She moves to her grandmother’s hometown, Indiana, with her young daughter Lula. They try to settle in the quaint town but it isn’t what Justine expected, with hidden stories and troubled history. The devastating secrets that drove her away are still memories that haunt her life.

This story jumped around – from England to America and between different time periods; the past and the now. The book goes back eighteen years to tell how Justine and her husband Matt met and found a perfect home. They had Abby and Ben and later Lula. Things started going wrong after Ben hit his head on the ground getting out of a tree.

It was too long and drawn out for my liking – you only find out what the tragedy is halfway through the book and the writer takes forever getting to the climatic event. Then, in the last one hundred pages, the author tries to reveal two family secrets and tie together two storylines.

It didn’t work for me but try it yourself.
