2. Strong, handsome man enters the picture
3. The two people have never experienced such attraction to another and fall in love in less than a week
4. The man becomes obsessed with protecting the woman in jeopardy and saves her at the last minute
5. They live happily ever after
I honestly don’t know how the author continues to get these books published or why I have kept reading them. Oh wait, it’s because I bought a bunch at one time at a cheaper price and now feel compelled to read them because I paid for them.
It’s not that she’s a bad writer. She just tells the same story over and over again. There is no originality to her story telling. She also comes across to me as a bit misogynistic with these women in jeopardy books.
While I feel the writing was good and the characters were engaging, I wanted more. More of Ethan and Abby's developing relationship. I wanted to feel his passion for her, but in that department it felt lackluster. I would almost call this a sweet love story if there hasn't been any actual sex.
Next, I found the mystery surprisingly engrossing, but I was disappointed at the inability of the author to create a more "revealing" outcome. Ms. Leigh wrote such good prose, full of accurate spine-tingling descriptions (Abby's experience in the river was superbly described) that I wanted more at that same level of expertise. And I didn't feel that was done.
All in all if Ms. Leigh wrote a hotter book with the same level of mystery, I'd be a new fan. Otherwise, her stories are too vanilla for me.
"She Can Hide" is book 4 in the "She Can" series, and like book 3, "She Can Scream," it's full of suspense, mystery, and romance that keeps you engaged from beginning to end, and like book 3, the characters are well-developed and likeable. Novels like this one where the author brings the supporting characters to the forefront giving them each a purpose instead of just introducing them only to never see them again, is what makes for a terrific and more engaging read. The author also does a superb job of taking all the mini-plots and tying them together, in the end giving her readers a well-written and most intriguing tale, leaving them in suspense, and guessing who the killer is.
-- SPOILER ALERT! --
While I did love the story, I was a quite peeved when I reached the end when I read the words "marry me." Cue the eye-rolls. I'm also adding a huge sigh. I'm so not a fan of novels where the H/h - having only known each other for a couple of days or weeks - get engaged. I'm sure there are other ways for the couple to have a happy ending. I just find the "let's get married" endings to be so unrealistic and trite, not to mention done to death. But hey, that's just me.
In the end, "She Can Hide" is a novel I highly recommend, especially to those who love the suspense-romance genre. Now for book 5.
