On the surface, Rachel Marin is an ordinary single mother; on the inside, she’s a fierce, brilliant vigilante. After an unspeakable crime shatters her life, she changes her identity and moves to a small town in Illinois, hoping to spare her children from further trauma…or worse. But crime follows her everywhere.
When the former mayor winds up dead, Rachel can’t help but get involved. Where local detectives see suicide, she sees murder. They resent her for butting in—especially since she’s always one step ahead. But her investigative genius may be her undoing: the deeper she digs, the harder it is to keep her own secrets buried.
Her persistence makes her the target of both the cops and a killer. Meanwhile, the terrifying truth about her past threatens to come to light, and Rachel learns the hard way that she can’t trust anyone. Surrounded by danger, she must keep her steely resolve, protect her family, and stay one step ahead, or else she may become the next victim.

This was another hyped up author on Instagram and Twitter with the release of A Stranger at the Door - book 2 in this series. I jumped at the kindle deal for Hide Away which is the first book in the Rachel Marin Series.
It's been awhile since a mystery has grabbed my attention like this one did. I was invested right away with Rachel, caring about her family and what happened in the past. She gets herself involved in something that sets off a chain reaction of events that quickly evolve into something dangerous.
This fast paced story was filled with well-developed characters, the easy banter involving Rachel made for a fun read - can I say fun when it's filled with suspense, secrets and intrigue?
The mystery itself was interesting, it kept me on my toes guessing at the outcome. As for the outcome, I loved it! I was thoroughly entertaining and can't wait to read book 2 in this series.
This book is from my personal kindle library.
