Another wonderful adventure in Nutfield from author Robin Patchen. As always, her characters are engaging and quirky, the setting is *the* small town we all wished we lived in, and there are parts of the story that keep you guessing. While it’s fun to see the cameo appearances of characters from her other series, there’s no need to read them before reading this. But if you haven’t – you’ll want to anyway!

Here’s the thrilling ending to the series! Harper’s secret is out and Jack is standing by her side, but Derrick is still lurking “out there” somewhere and there’s another someone from the past who could be even more deadly. You don’t want to miss this last installment of the “Beauty in Flight” series! Robin Patchen is the master of writing bad guys. It’ll keep you glued to your chair.
“Beauty in Hiding” picks up right where “Beauty in Flight” left off. Harper and Jack are thrown together more, and Jack is suspicious and intrigued by the beauty and her confused grandfather. Tensions ramp up as Derrick’s life is threatened by his evil cohorts. The race is on to find his grandfather – and Harper – and make them pay. . .one way or another. This one will keep you up past your bedtime!
Robin Patchen has brought out another book that kept me turning the pages! Harper isn’t someone I could identify with in any way other than Patchen’s magic in bringing such a character to life. A woman who has made so many truly terrible choices in her life, paid a heavy price, and is trying to pull herself together. But her past includes some very dangerous elements and at least one of those elements won’t let her go.
Here’s “the rest of the story” on Nate Boyle from book #1, Convenient Lies. (Which is good, because I really, really liked him in that book.) In true Patchen fashion, the story peels back its layers amid intrigue, sometimes gut-wrenching emotion, and danger. A great combination! Marisa Vega – the heroine – will grab your heart as she works to help others while burying herself. (You’ll have to read the book to understand.) I recommend reading Convenient Lies first for more insight into the character of Nate Boyle. Because you’ll want to know what this guy has already been through!
If you like international intrigue with a strong romantic element, this is the book for you. It’s got danger, a handsome hero, a perplexing villain, a body count, and a heroine you’ll be cheering on throughout the book.
Reagan McAdams returns to her old home, and her old name. Fleeing Paris with her infant son, she arrives at her grandmother’s house only to learn that the dear woman passed away days ago. Her husband has lied to her, her grandmother has left her, and her high school boyfriend is trying to get too close to her. She knows the danger she’s in, she just doesn’t know how she’s going to get out of it, or if she will.
The only reason this book is classified as YA fiction, is because of the age of the main characters. But don’t kid yourself (pun intended), this book is also a great read for adults. Lots of suspense, a bit of romance, and a solid background of Biblical prophesy.
