Nick Anthony, an expert musician, purchased a large estate near Pine Falls a short time before his wife was killed in an auto accident. Injured and blinded in the same incident, he’s modified his name and keeps a low profile – until he’s persuaded to assist with a local theater production. His blindness does not hinder recognition of the talent or attraction to the soloist on stage.
Misty tempers her attraction to the substitute music director with the reality of her secret past. Is her house fire an accident or does it mean the mob has found her? Again. With more financial and personnel resources than Misty can imagine, Nick offers his estate as a temporary safe haven.
Following Misty and Nick as they shed their secrets and evade her pursuers is an enjoyable read.
Review by Georgianna Simpson
Another wonderful suspenseful romance by Susanne Matthews! If we gave stars, this one would be a 5!
This one begins with Misty Starr our heroine living in Pine Falls a small town, actually Misty and daughter Debbie are in the witness protection program and have been relocated a few times. Misty feels a lot of guilt for the deaths of the U.S. Marshalls that were guarding her. She is being hunted by a specific family of the Irish Mob for her testimony that put them away. This last relocation was done by a retired agent named Amos. Amos and his wife Beryl live in Pine Falls and brought Misty and Debbie there to live, provided her with a cover story as the widow of his son killed overseas. This all began years ago and Misty and Debbie (now four years old) are feeling safer. Amos helped her get a small two story house near his, and a job as the elementary school secretary. Her neighbor is Charlotte, a widow also with a four year old daughter Cassie.
Micah Jones and his doctor-wife Laura, run the Pine Hill Theater Group and are doing a production of Jesus Christ Superstar, a charity production that annually funds improvements for the local clinic. When someone had to be replaced quickly, friends of Misty talked her into joining the group and when she sang, her voice was a huge surprise to everyone. She's a bit nervous as she doesn't feel safe to put herself in the spotlight for fear of being discovered. She reluctantly agrees to be in the production, when her widowed neighbor, Charlotte, says she'll babysit for Debbie while she's at the theater.
During costuming, she was laughing about the costume they wanted her to wear, saying she looked like a beach cabana. Then Micah and Laura walked in with a stunningly handsome man no one knew. Misty was surprised, but immediately very attracted to him. Micah introduced the man as Nick Anthony and told everyone he was a retired musician and going to help with the music. When she was introduced to him she stuck her hand out but he seemed to just move on and ignored her. She thought him rude, but couldn't understand why he kept staring at her. Okay, that's the set up...now comes the truly interesting parts! I don't do spoilers, because you really need to enjoy reading this wonderfully romantic story. I'll just give you this: Nick wasn't rude, he was blind...and yes, he's also instantly attracted to Misty, by her scent of course, since...he blind! His story is another tragic one that unfolds throughout the telling.
Strange and dangerous things begin to happen, and Nick feels he needs to keep Misty and Debbie safe! And he's just the guy who can do it! How you ask? Read the story, it's amazing and so heartwarmingly romantic, not to mention the steamy relationship that's building. Exciting and twisty plotting are the climax of this wonderfully compelling story. As an added bonus we get a visit from Alexis and Jake McKenzie from Fire Angel another wonderful novel from Susanne Matthews, I loved catching up with them.
Grab a glass of wine (or two..) and get comfortable (you may be up until the wee hours of the morning because you won't want to put this down), you're in for a great read! Enjoy, I did!
Copy supplied by the author for an honest review.
Unlike the superficial Barbie and Ken perfect prototype duo, Misty Starr and Nick Anthony are credible characters, with very human flaws and traumas, both physical and psychological. By using this technique, the author makes them believable, almost real and the reader sympathizes with them.
Caught in the action - methodical and logical, with impeccable descriptions, I could actually see every scene with my mind's eyes, almost like watching a movie.
"In Plain Sight" is a delightful read and S. Matthews didn't disappoint me, but made me look forward to her future works!
I was totally in love with Nick. He is very caring and protective especially when it came to Misty and her daughter, Debbie. The romance between these two was quite sweet. There were times when I wish I was in Misty's shoes. She is one lucky lady. I liked how the author portrayed Nick and Misty. I found them to be quite realistic as they each had their emotional and physical traumas to deal with and it was easy for me to empathise with them. Debbie was such an adorable little angel and very smart too.
I loved how she played on the budding relationship between Nicks' personal assistant and Misty's friend Charlotte. I do hope they get their own story.
I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book and I must reiterate this was an awesome read. My advice to you lovers of the romantic suspense genre is to get a copy and read. It will be worth your while.
