Title:  Nowhere to Turn (Hidden Identity #2)

Pages:  320

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.
