#Review: HIDDEN SINS by Karice Bolton



4 of 5 stars

Hidden Sins is a well-written romantic suspense story. The main character, Hannah, is running for her life. In a chance meeting at a local coffee shop, she runs into Luke, who saves her from embarrassment and buys her morning coffee. From there, their two lives are intertwined. Luke runs a security firm and he knows when someone is running. Hannah has all the characteristics of someone in trouble. Her innocence captures him and he vows to protect her and get to the bottom of her dilemma.

The author does a great job of throwing twists and turns into the story while nurturing a budding romance between Luke and Hannah. The book is fast-paced, but with enough description and interaction between all the characters to flesh them out nicely.   My only complaint is that while the body of the book is rich in details, the climax is over in a mere page or two. My kindle was at 90% when the book ended abruptly and I was disappointed that Hidden Sins was done and the rest of the book was a preview of another book. All in all though, fans of romantic suspense will thoroughly enjoy this book.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Synopsis:
Luke Fletcher asks himself one simple question. Is she worth dying for?
His answer is yes.
When Hannah Walker rolls into her new town on fumes, she doesn’t expect her past to catch up to her so quickly. But the moment her card is declined for a lousy cup of coffee, she realizes nowhere is safe, and her life on the run has just gotten more complex.
Luke Fletcher has made it his mission in life to protect. When he meets Hannah Walker, she makes it clear that his services aren’t needed and neither is he, but there’s something in her eyes that tells another story. Once he begins investigating the woman with many names, he realizes one thing is clear. Whoever, she’s running from won’t stop until she’s dead.
Determined to gain Hannah’s trust and break down her walls, Luke begins to share his own history, but where that leads could cost them more than their hearts as the sins of others threatens to destroy them both.
