"A heartfelt tale, told with a deft touch." Rowan Coleman, author

"Lyrical from start to finish, Elle Amberley embraces the essence of women and friendship in Nowhere Left to Hide. Natasha, a young poet and writer, is wise beyond her years, as she lets us accompany her on her year long journey from England to the sunny coast of Southern California as she finds courage, her true calling and love."

Lily Richards

5.0 out of 5 stars Take The Journey Yourself November 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Elle Amberley has recreated every fiber of a woman's being in Natasha, the main character in the Book. Every fear, aspiration, expectation,will,strength, weakness...all those things that every woman knows is beating within, makes up the cadence of this story. I loved it from the 1st page and found myself setting the alarm clock to squeeze in a few more chapters before the day begins.

To read this book, is to take a ride of an emotional carousel, laughter included.
A terrific book by an incredible author and an exceptional woman, Elle Amberley.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read from Elle! December 30, 2011
By Christy
Format:Kindle Edition
Natasha is in her third year of university when she gets the opportunity of a lifetime to study abroad in California for her final year. She jumps at the chance, even though it means leaving her only friend Poppy to her own devices in England. Once in California, Natasha wants to shed her shy demeanour and be whoever she wants to be in this new place. A place to explore and forget her horrible past of abuse that she suffered from her now deceased parents and her two step-brothers. She meets a group of friends including Kirsten, Mike - and Tyler whom she is attracted to instantly. But she is afraid to pursue a relationship with him since her dealings with the opposite sex are few and far between. This is a great coming-of-age story about getting over your past tribulations and excelling in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrical from Beginning to End November 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Elle Amberley treats us to a quick read, woven with the lyrics of gentle lessons.

I am struck, Nowhere Left to Hide, showcases how truly valuable our friendships are and how much our female friends, in particular, mean to us as women.

Natasha, the main character, is a young university student who has endured horrific abuses in her life, yet somehow has been able to hold that pain close, see it clearly for what it is, and use it to be more conscientious and sympathetic towards others.

Even those people who were labeled as wicked or difficult, Natasha was able to see past their facade and see their pain was much like hers. Typically these types of people push others away, but Natasha helped them to see their sameness.

Being witness to Natasha's sensitivity, turned people around. Suddenly they were understood. Suddenly they were accepted. Suddenly, they could let that big huge wall down and show their true selves. And isn't that what we all want? To be understood? To be accepted? And to feel safe enough to let the guard down?

Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

Natasha Parker is a smart and beautiful young woman who has endured a childhood of distrust , pain , and abuse. She has closed herself off while finding ways to hide from those who caused her scars.

While attending college in England , she is offered to go to Santa Barbara for her last year , while a bit scared , shes excited for the chance. Once there she has no problem finding friends , she hits it off with Mike , Kirsten and Tyler. Her and Kirsten become best friends and Natasha starts spending more time with Tyler, who is trying to figure her out. While trying to build a new life for herself she is still haunted with her past, and finds it hard to open up and trust others. While Tyler is trying to take it slow and not be pushy , Natasha finally opens up to him and tells him her dark secrets, it's a difficult road for her to go down , but it gives her a sense of relief , and helps to make life easier.

Natasha finds love with Tyler , she is finally happy , but after graduation her visa expires and she will have to return to England . With both of them going through emotional hell , Tyler is determined to be with his woman , and does something that no one was expecting.

I enjoyed this book , it is emotional , yet funny and easy going. Natasha had a horrible childhood , but she stayed strong and upbeat. Its fresh and clean and I will be passing it on to my teen daughter and mother.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could barely finish this February 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I guess this is one of those examples of "something for everyone", and I'm glad others found this to be worth their time, but it was not to my taste in the slightest. I invested myself in about 12 chapters which I think is more than fair, and I just couldn't stomach anymore. I skimmed through the predictable rest until reaching the end, which was no surprise, really. I'm around many young adults, and I just don't see them interacting or conversing in the unrealistic ways the author portrayed. Its hard to settle into a story that's supposed to realistically represent college students in California when the author has them all talk about going to "uni", and not just the transfer student from England. I won't bore you with the numerous other examples. Once I read a pretty obvious grammatical error, as in "Tyler and her went..." it's just about over for me anyway. There are so many rich, entertaining, engaging literary opportunities out there, this just wasn't worth the little time I actually do have available for pleasure reading. The only reason I didn't give it a 1 is because I didn't hate it. Didn't care for it but it didn't go the "abhor" distance either. Maybe I'm just looking for something else out of a book... So glad it was free and I only lost time on it.

More About the Author

A prolific author, Elle Amberley writes Women's Fiction, Literary, poetry, short stories and features. If that wasn't enough she recently started writing in French and a novel is due for publication next year.
Nowhere Left to hide, her latest novel is based in California and charts the journey of Natasha Parker, a British student who seeks to escape her childhood ghosts. Novelist Rowan Coleman wrote the blurb and described it as a "heartfelt tale."

Lost in your time, latest novel, based in Paris

Rock star or husband - which would you choose?

Ah, the dangers of the internet! We've all been warned, but do we take notice?

When Natasha clicks on a link, her whole life is turned upside down. A flash from the past, a chance meeting with a gorgeous French rock star...A chance to start over and forget the pain and misery from the last two years.

Elle's particular strength is writing positive stories with a strong theme of being lost and finding yourself again. Although she broaches difficult subjects in her novels, the characters turn out to be fighters, not victims. Every emotion is conveyed and her style has been described as "lyrical" and appeals to a wide age group, which is a rarity.
Having overcome many obstacles in her life, including a very difficult childhood, she chose to reconstruct her life. Rather than writing a memoir like many abuse victims she prefers to marry fiction with some of her own experiences.
Elle's short stories and articles reflect her interests and fascinations. A passionate writer, she uses these to express her feelings and dismay at the injustices of this world.

Lost in your time, available now. Novelist meets French rock star, prepare for the sparkles.
You can find out more about Elle on and follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
