Hiding by author Katherine McDermott begins in America with Teresa Worthington running from her abusive and mentally unstable boyfriend Alex. Fleeing to Paris, she finds a place of peace which appeals to her artistic soul. Meeting Serge Gervais, Teresa finds a handsome compassionate young man. Serge's campaign to win Teresa is slow and steady. With patience he shows Teresa the regard and love of a good man.
However in the shadows, a menace is waiting to wreak havoc on Teresa and Serge. Alex has tracked Teresa to Paris and as his mental stability falls further and further from reality, he plans revenge. My reviews for romance novel, Hiding, follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Although Hiding's a suspense romance, McDermott filled her story with the beautiful descriptions of France. From her vivid writing I could see France in my mind's eye. This book grabbed me immediately and I read it straight through. I love a good romance which includes a dastardly villain and a worthy hero. This book has all two in spades. As Alex's mental stability falls further and further, I sat on the edge of my seat.
Serge is the perfect match for Teresa; both have artistic souls. His patience and compassion will make the reader sigh; while Alex is the exact opposite, as he fell further into his fantasy. The character development in this novel's skillful and progressive. Each characters grows, in Alex's case drops further into insanity, throughout the book. The secondary characters gives the reader at look at Parisian citizens and the culture. With suspenseful and intriguing plotting, I found myself involved in Serge and Teresa life, feeling the fear and also the growing love.
In concluding my reviews for romance novel, Hiding, I found a solid well-written and developed story-line. The characters grew throughout the story and the plot grabs you immediately. This is a clean romance with moral values in a day of free sex. McDermott's writing talent carries this book without the need of fluff or sex. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
HIDING RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
FINALLY, PLEASE NOTE:
Additionally, I received this book from the author and Readingalley. I chose to voluntarily review the book with an honest reviews for suspense romance novel, Hiding. Lastly, book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinions. In addition, no one influenced my voluntary reviews for suspense romance novel, Hiding.
The story revolves around Teresa, opening with a look at what caused her to seek recluse in faraway Paris -- being physically abused by her boyfriend Alex. Starting a new life, she meets Serge, who slowly and patiently show her how to trust in guys and love again. But life is not so simple and Alex eventually tracks her down. The story culminates in a thrilling chase to stop Alex from killing Teresa.
I like how the story builds up -- on the one hand, we get to see how deranged and delusional one can get in stalking someone. On the other hand, we get to witness how love can grow and blossom between two people, no matter how painful a person's past can be. And interspersed throughout the book are nice, refreshing details giving us a glimpse of how life in Paris could be like (not just the usual few days and places tourists normally visit).
One aspect I believe could be improved on is on Alex's character development. For example, I am not sure what kind of background he has to be stalking Teresa to the point where he's willing to kill just to get her back. Sure, he felt he had been double crossed, but there has to be something more in his character to seek such kind of revenge.
Overall, this one is very well suited for those looking for a nice and sweet romance with a touch of mystery. I look forward to reading more books from the author.
Review copy provided by Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.
The setting is great as well; I've never been to Paris, but the author made the city come alive in a way that made me want to and see it in person! Though the story started out slow, I like this as it allows us to get to know the characters better and see them grow as well as immerse ourselves in the romantic development between Serge and Teresa.
Overall, a sweet, romantic read with just the right dash of suspense!
