Nowhere to Turn (Hidden Identity #2)

Title:  Nowhere to Turn (Hidden Identity #2)

Author:  Lynette Eason

Pages:  320

Year:  2014

Publisher:  Revell

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

Dani Harding and her 11-year-old son are the victims of abuse from Dani’s husband, Kurt.  He is an FBI agent on the track to success, but Dani knows different.  She has tried to leave him before with disastrous consequences.  Now, she is gathering her courage to make a run one more time.  She cleans out the home safe, then receives a phone call that will change her life.  She thinks her life has taken a turn for the better until she discovers terrible people think she has something her husband stole.  However, Dani has no idea what it is or where to find it.  She needs help keeping herself and her son alive but can’t trust the FBI as she knows firsthand that some of them are just as dishonest as Kurt.  She sees an email offering protection, so she hires Operation Refuge.

Adam Buchanan has left the U.S. Marshals and now works for Operation Refuge.  He immediately feels protective of Dani and her deaf son, Simon.  He begins to learn sign language and serves as a male role model for Simon.  Simon wants his mom to be safe and smile again.  Dani wants to believe Adam and his company can keep them safe, but time after time the bad guys find them.  They must run for their lives again and again.  When will it end?  Adam develops feelings for Dani and sees her as a strong woman who survived an intolerable life.  Dani feels safe with Adam and begins to see what it is like to be treated as a respected woman.  She also likes how Adam interacts with Simon.  Both will have their mettle tested as they try to find what Kurt stole and stay alive.

This is another suspense filled story that readers will devour.  I appreciate how the author weaves in the faith of one or both main characters in the story into their everyday lives.  They don’t act like Christians just on Sunday.  The live their faith, especially in the difficult times.  I have already started the final story in this trilogy, No Place to Hide, and like the two predecessors it starts off with a tense situation that will pull readers into the story right away.

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…
