Description

"Reading Hideaway is like a mini vacation, as Roberts transports you from the sun-drenched mountains of Big Sur to the rolling hills of Ireland to the bustling streets of New York City." - Associated Press

A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel, Hideaway.

Caitlyn Sullivan had come from a long line of Hollywood royalty, stretching back to her Irish immigrant great-grandfather. At nine, she was already a star—yet still an innocent child who loved to play hide and seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.

Some may have considered her a pampered princess, but Cate was in fact a smart, scrappy fighter, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bloodied, exhausted girl huddled in his house—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge, reuniting her with her loved ones.

Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a shocking betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years spent away in western Ireland, peaceful and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul.

Finally, she would return to Los Angeles, gathering the courage to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn’t yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night—one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance…

    I loved this book. My 2nd Nora Robert’s of 2021 {Under Currents being my 1st}. I bought the book and put off reading it for a day or 2 because of negative reviews. The reviews both indicated a disappointing ending... that the ending seemed rushed or the couple have gotten married. I thought the ending great. Once I realized Cate and Dillon didn’t break up or one or both didn’t get killed I was very relieved. In fact it ended with them talking about getting married. All Nora Robert’s Fans and Happily Ever After Fans - you’ll enjoy this book.

    I love Nora Roberts but this was by far one of her most disappointing books. I gave this book one star because Part 1, out of 4 parts, was very good. After that it became boring, predictable and repetitive. The character development was weak for the male lead, and the ending was anti-climatic at best. I’m mad that I spent $14.99 on the audio book.

    I love Nora Roberts. I just finished ‘The Awakening’ and then found this one. If your looking for a book to escape 2020 for a bit and don’t need a huge reveal, this is the book for you. The characters were not fleshed out, two dimensional and not as well written. The book feels like it was pieced together. I imagined the story had been written awhile back, and worked on to bring it up to date.The ending was unsatisfactory.
  • Great Read!

    Love anything Nora Roberts writes. Saw some more negative reviews, so was questioning if I should buy it. But, I did, and throughly glad I did. Great story, fun characters. Kept me in it ‘till the end. Although as some said, would’ve been nice to get to a wedding or something.

    I’ve read all of Nora Roberts books (not Silhouette Romance) and loved them all. Several are favorites I read again and again. This one was flat, it actually felt like some of her earliest work, like maybe it was a manuscript in the bottom drawer from 1989 she pulled out to fulfill a publishing commitment. The beauty of Noras talent is her character development. The reader knows and loves the characters and I get lost in the worlds she creates. This one was a shell. I never knew or loved any of the characters and Cate wasn’t real in any way. This is one of the few I’ll never read again like Come Sundown and The Villa. Unlovable, 2 dimensional characters, weak storylines and just - disappointing.

    I love Nora and this book was good however she cheated us on the ending. Did she have a deadline to meet and ran out of time? We deserved the wedding payoff and to see the instigator find out his plan has blown up! The ending was disappointing.

    I thought I was reading a Danielle Steel novel. Everything was too perfect. Ending was too simple.
