Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

With Steal Away, Hall begins the Teri Blake-Addison mystery series, featuring the aforementioned Teri, a newly married PI whose requisite quirks are so mild they don't seem worth committing to paper. However, the case--whatever happened to the wife of a famous evangelist--is puzzling and absorbing to the end, and it results in a kind of examination of the dedicated religious life. So the series may march on, but Teri could do with a bit of jazzing up. John Mort

The defining moment in Teri Blake Addison's life came when she was fourteen years old and her mother went out to do grocery shopping. She never came home and the police thought she was abducted because her car was found in the grocery parking lot. Several years later Tori becomes a police officer and then a private detective specializing in missing person cases. At age of thirty-eight she married the love of her life, widower Jack Addison, an English professor and fellow Christian.
Her latest client is world famous televangelist and foremost Christian apologist Dr. Carl Houseman who founded the rich congregation Houseman Ministries. He is getting married again five years after his wife was killed in a boating accident but before he puts an end to that period in his life he wants Teri to find out his wife's state of mind in her last days. Teri's investigation takes an unexpected turn when she comes upon a reclusive living on Grand Maran Island living with her twenty something mentally challenged daughter.
This novel will STEAL AWAY the reader from the ordinary world and transport them into the pages of this fascinating tale of portrayal, redemption and second chances. Without getting preachy, this mystery within a mystery focuses on the premise no sin is too big to be unforgivable if the person genuinely regrets what they have done (difficult to accept for many people). The protagonist is a likable person who does her job without alienating others and has such an honest personality that people open up to her. This is the first installment in what looks like a good mystery series.

If you're looking for a mystery that you won't be able to put down, read Steal Away! Linda Hall's best book yet. This novel is complex, compelling, and the story is intricately woven into the lives of the exceptional characters Ms. Hall has created. The mystery will grab you and keep you guessing until the very satisfactory ending. Personalities spring to life throughout this book, each of them with their own set of problems and secrets, which build the escalating mystery to a fine pitch. This is the best book I've read in years. I can't wait for Ms. Hall's next book.

This was a great mystery. The author did a great job in presenting a mystery with so many questions to be answered. What happened to Ellen? Was she alive? Who was the mysterious Garda and her daughter. Why was Ellen so unhappy? And mixed in with the main story was Teri, the PI who was trying to solve the mystery for Ellen's husband Carl. She is struggling to fit in with the church, as well as struggling with the ghost of her husband, Jack's 1st wife.
The book not only presented a great mystery of betrayal and deception, but demonstrated the theme of grace and forgiveness. The book showed that no matter how far you stray from God, forgiveness is always there, no matter how "big" the sin is.
I do think that some things were rushed towards the end. What happened to Jimmy Jarvis? There was some speculation, but nothing was really resolved. Maybe that is just one of those things that will leave the readers guessing. Also, what happened to Audrey towards the end?
I would have liked to see the marriage between Teri and Jack explored more. I know that Teri felt that she was competing with the ghost of Jack's first wife. Maybe this will be explored in future books in the series.
Again, a great mystery book! I look forward to reading Chat Room.

Linda Hall's books are so fun to read. I have enjoyed all of them.
If you like suspense and you miss the good clean mystery reads you will love Linda Hall's books, all of them.
Steal Away is an intriguing story about guilt and the web of lies and hurt it can produce.
Teri the PI really comes to life. The conflicts in her church were nicely weaved in and were very real.
It's a story about controling people causing a lot of saddness and hurt.
I appreciate the fact that Linda does not preach in her books. She does what she does best and that is write a good mystery.

I read Steal Away while on vacation which was fortunate as I had a hard time putting it down! Trying to piece together the clues kept me wanting to "steal away" from vacation activities to read some more! It was interesting to read about Ellen's escape from a very real and entitled life and how that was accomplished over so many years! As a native New Englander, it was interesting to read the author's description of the Maine coast as it conjured vivid images of the setting of the story.

I enjoyed this book very much. I like that fact that the main character is seeking out missing persons. Unravelling the mysteries of old accidents and disappearances. Very realistic and enjoyable to read. I will certainly read more of this author.

Clumsy editing took away from this otherwise excellent story. The quirky characters are unique, well-defined, and likeable. The settings are vividly described, and the story grabbed me at page one and kept me turning pages to the satisfying conclusion. I don't usually bother trying to figure out mysteries as I read, but this one had me guessing all the way through. If you can overlook some misspellings and punctuation errors (and some sentences in the first chapter that seem to have been placed in the wrong paragraph), this book is definitely worth reading.
