Christmas in Hiding

Title:  Christmas in Hiding
Author:  Cate Nolan
Pages:  221
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Love Inspired Suspense
My rating is 4 stars.
Callie Martin has been placed in the Witness Protection Program after witnessing the murder of her ex-boyfriend during a drug deal gone bad when undercover police arrive at the scene.  She had no knowledge of her ex-boyfriend’s drug connections, but these drug dealers are after her anyway.  They will stop at nothing to take her out in order to stop the trial of the offenders who were caught during the raid.  Callie has been relocated to New York and has been there a few months when her cover is blown.  Her handler is injured so a new Federal Marshal is assigned to her, Jackson Walker.
Jackson Walker is familiar with Callie’s case and knows it is his job to protect her at all costs so she can testify.  What he doesn’t count on is being immediately attracted to Callie and having their whereabouts discovered time and again by the gang of thugs sent to silence Callie.  He has a hard time believing Callie knew nothing of her boyfriend’s drug dealing and is suspicious of Callie.  Over time, he watches her rely on God again and again.  He starts to think that maybe she really is innocent.  He also wonders how the gang is finding them.  Is there a mole in the marshals’ program?
I liked Callie’s optimism and reliance on God shown repeatedly in this story.  What a great life example for Jackson!  There was plenty of action, tension and excitement in the story.  I also like Jackson’s protectiveness and wanting to give Callie happiness during her favorite holiday.  This would be a great one to read on a long car drive or in a shady spot on a warm afternoon.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
