Review: Nowhere to Turn (Hidden Identity Book #2): A Novel
Nowhere to Turn (Hidden Identity Book #2): A Novel by Lynette Eason
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The day Danielle Harding takes her 11-year-old son, Simon, and flees from her abusive husband, is the same day he, Kurt Harding, dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally safe--but in reality, the danger has just begun. When Kurt was alive, he took something that was important to a mysterious person. That person wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run for their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won't be able to hide for long . . .
I like all three of the main characters and thought they were very well developed in the book. Dani has made the mistake of staying in an abusive relationship for 12 years and finally makes the decision to leave. Then, after thinking she's safe when her husband is killed, she ends up on the run again after someone tries to kill her. For the most part she manages to stay strong for her deaf son. She also has to learn to let herself trust a man again. Adam is still overcoming the mistakes from his past and has to make difficult personal decisions to try to help keep Dani and her son safe. And Simon, Dani's son, is deaf and has lived with the abuse of his father for years. He also has to learn to trust again.
This book keeps you on the edge of your seat! Adam and his team are trying their best to keep Dani and her son safe but they are being tracked somehow. I just cringed every time they were found until they figured out how they were being discovered. The fact that the main villains were badge carrying FBI agents made it harder for them to hide. There is plenty of action and lots of suspense to keep your attention! There were also some twists to the story that I definitely didn't see coming. All in all, a very good book!
