an E.R. doctor, Cheyenne Allison is used to handling emergencies
on a daily basis until her own sister codes on
the trauma bed. Devastated, Cheyenne retreats to an isolated
farm in Hideaway, Missouri. But peace and solitude are
in short supply in this picturesque Ozarks town. A dangerous
vandal has the community terrorized, and Cheyenne finds
an unexpected demand for her medical skills.
Austin Barlow is convinced the culprit resides with
Cheyenne's charismatic neighbor across the lake, Dane
Gideon, whose ranch for foster boys has given rise to
previous violence. Cheyenne distrusts Austin, while
Dane inspires her respect, and perhaps something more
although she can't share the faith that sustains
him as the violence turns deadly. Then Cheyenne, already
pursued by a past nemesis, becomes the vandal's target,
and she can only hope that Hideaway will prove her sanctuary
perhaps a place to call home.
humor and an interesting cast of characters keep the
story perking along...and there are a few surprises...An
enjoyable read." Publishers Weekly
"...Hideaway is gripping and romantic. It may
also have crossover appeal to fans of medical suspense
and of such authors as Tess Gerritsen."
"...special care is taken to be accurate with
medical terminology. The author also writes beautifully
about those who struggle with the apparent hypocrisy
of Christians...Outstanding real-life dialogue...is
naturally sprinkled throughout the book."
Laurie Copeland, Christian Retailing
medical issues, compelling story lines, spiritual
so authentic you'd know them if you met them on the street,
Hannah Alexander knows how to weave stories that hang
on to your heart long after you finish the books. Bravo!"
Susan May Warren, bestselling author of The Deep Haven
"Hideaway is absolutely the best book I have read
this year.... The strength of emotion packs a powerful
punch, and the suspense sits on the edge of a knifepoint....
Each and every secondary character is captivating, and
the events are traumatic as the story moves quickly through
the pages.... The inspirational qualities are by far the
most superior I have read.... Hideaway is an absolute
must read for everyone.... I am pleased to award this
novel RRT's Perfect 10."
