Hide and Seek
Hide and Seek: DI Helen Grace 6 (Detective Inspector Helen Grace) - M.J. Arlidge

Oh man when I saw there was another Helen Grace book out I knew I would have to read it. I checked my local library and saw they had it in there and placed my reserved.
Now normally you can read a series by itself and still understand what has happened I would highly recommend you read the book before this one at least so you can know why Helen is in prison.

Two things are going on within this story. Helen is in prison and when the bodies start piling up Helen will stop at nothing to solve this mystery. She will not allow the killer to escape rather it be a prison guard or an actually inmate.
With Helen doing that her previous co-worker DI Brooks is trying to clear Helen's name. Though she is hitting a few roadblocks with her bosses.
I can honestly say I didn't think of this person would be the murderer I was almost certain I knew who it was when I got the part where I gasped. Nope I was totally wrong.
I really loved how Helen handled being in prison she wasn't one just to roll over even though she knew the odds were against her.
The way the victims were murdered was pretty crazy, but I loved how we were given detail!
I don't think this was my favorite one out of the series but I did enjoy it. Can't wait for the next one.

A Weekend with Few Plans!
The Mummy Case - Elizabeth Peters
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J.K. Rowling
The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu: And Their Race to Save the World’s Most Precious Manuscripts - Joshua Hammer
Hide and Seek - Ian Rankin
The Great Starvation Experiment: The Heroic Men Who Starved so That Millions Could Live - Todd Tucker

Such a rarity and I appreciate it very much.  Saturday will be errand day and Sunday will be for cooking.  With lots of breaks for reading.

 

And I will finish The Mummy Case, dang it!  Don't know why I've been so easily distracted from it, but I will finish it this evening.

 

The Great Starvation Experiment is surprising--I am finding it somewhat creepy!  Who would do this to their fellow human beings?

 

Have a great weekend!

REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Hide and Seek by Desiree Holt
Hide and Seek - Desiree Holt
Hide and Seek is the first book by Desiree Holt that I have read, but it won't be the last. We start off with Graham, who has somehow been in bed with a drugs cartel, but didn't realise it. He decides that he needs to escape from it, meticulously planning everything. However, best laid plans and all that... it doesn't quite go according to how he thought it would.
 
His daughter ends up being smack-dab in the middle of everything, with the drug cartel goonies coming at her from all sides. The only help she has is the town sheriff and her sister who runs a security agency. Luckily for her, that is all the help she needs.
 
The attraction between Logan and Devon is instantaneous, with some inopportune and poorly timed reactions thrown in for good measure. Devon is a strong character, and doesn't do anything ridiculous because 'she knows best'. Logan has his own secrets, but finds the attraction for Devon to be stronger than his hesitations.
 
On the whole, I enjoyed this book. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pace was smooth and the transition from one scene to the next flowed. I think the only thing for me would be the timing of certain things, but then there is no 'ruling' of when the time is right.
 
I hope this is the first in a series, and if so, I look forward to reading further along. Definitely recommended by me.

good book and characters
Hide and Seek - Desiree Holt

 

Devon had been run off the road and threatened  by two thugs about her father. Then she finds out he is missing and she has no idea where he is. Then a good samaritan comes along to help her and it turns out to be Logan who is a bodyguard in the Vigilance Security Agency Devon realizes someone is after her. Devon is a strong independant woman. Logan realizes Devon is in danger he is hired to protect her. Logan and Devon have a hot chemistry. Devon and Logan work on finding her father and what happened to him.    Logan and Devon have a hot chemistry but Logan is leery of getting involved with a client as he worries he won’t be able to protect her as well if there is a personal involvement. Devon and her father weren’t very close but it was her father’s choice. He had been pulling away and acting strangely recently. .Devon worries she is a replacement for Logan’s lost love. Logan blames himself for his deceased girlfriend's death. Devon starts getting threatening calls, break ins, and thugs seeking information on her father.  

I liked this story a lot. I didn’t want to put this down as I wanted to see what is going to happen next. This book had : danger, mystery, romance, drama, suspense, surprises, humor, action. Threats, hot chemistry, guilt, secrets, and a lot more This story did feel realistic This definitely keeps your interest all the way through this book. At times you are on the edge of your seat. I was glad for the backstory. I felt this had a good plot and pace.  I enjoyed the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
