Description

"Reading Hideaway is like a mini vacation, as Roberts transports you from the sun-drenched mountains of Big Sur to the rolling hills of Ireland to the bustling streets of New York City." - Associated Press

A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel, Hideaway.

Caitlyn Sullivan had come from a long line of Hollywood royalty, stretching back to her Irish immigrant great-grandfather. At nine, she was already a star—yet still an innocent child who loved to play hide and seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.

Some may have considered her a pampered princess, but Cate was in fact a smart, scrappy fighter, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bloodied, exhausted girl huddled in his house—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge, reuniting her with her loved ones.

Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a shocking betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years spent away in western Ireland, peaceful and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul.

Finally, she would return to Los Angeles, gathering the courage to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn’t yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night—one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance…

    I’ve read all of Nora Roberts books (not Silhouette Romance) and loved them all. Several are favorites I read again and again. This one was flat, it actually felt like some of her earliest work, like maybe it was a manuscript in the bottom drawer from 1989 she pulled out to fulfill a publishing commitment. The beauty of Noras talent is her character development. The reader knows and loves the characters and I get lost in the worlds she creates. This one was a shell. I never knew or loved any of the characters and Cate wasn’t real in any way. This is one of the few I’ll never read again like Come Sundown and The Villa. Unlovable, 2 dimensional characters, weak storylines and just - disappointing.

    Predictable and PC’d

    I love Nora and this book was good however she cheated us on the ending. Did she have a deadline to meet and ran out of time? We deserved the wedding payoff and to see the instigator find out his plan has blown up! The ending was disappointing.

    I thought I was reading a Danielle Steel novel. Everything was too perfect. Ending was too simple.

    The book was great! I just wish she would have finished it with the wedding perhaps. It was just missing a little something at the end for me.

    Another Winner for Nora Roberts. I’d give it more stars if I could. Cate and Dillon are young and in love. Lily, Julia, Maggie are the best female role models a girl could have. Plenty of drama and suspense to keep you interested and a slam bang ending. Perfect.

    Kept your attention, but drug on too long, an the ending was a let down. There was so much tension during the book, but lost it all in the end!

    I’ve been reading Nora Roberts books since the early 2000’s, and I am a huge fan of her earlier works. This book has all her usual style with these types of stories except zero suspense. You knew where it was going every step of the way. This book is split into four sections and while I enjoyed the first three parts it seemed to me that the last section of the book felt rushed, and the ending was unsatisfying at best.
