Review: She Can Hide by Melinda Leigh

From the moment Officer Ethan Hale pulls Abby Foster from icy waters, he senses there’s more to her than meets the eye. Abby has no memory of the accident that submerged her car in the frozen river. Three years ago, Abby was kidnapped and abandoned in a well for a week. The botched police investigation nearly killed her. Abby had moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania for a fresh start, but when it becomes clear that this car crash wasn’t an accident, she knows the violence from her past has caught up with her.  But Abby’s former assailant was convicted and imprisoned, so who else wants her dead?  Ethan uncovers a fresh string of murders tied to Abby’s past. Someone is trying to kill her, and this time the stalker seems determined to finish the task. As the killer grows bolder, Abby begins to trust Ethan enough to share the truth, her heart, and her life. But to stop the murders, Ethan must make a decision that could jeopardize it all.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A slow building mystery that has many characters that all end up coming together from different directions for the shocking conclusion.

My thoughts on this one are that the author has written it so that the readers must deduce for themselves what the characters are like through their thoughts, actions, and interaction with other characters. When you got to the end of the book some of those conclusions you made throughout the book were not the right ones. Sometimes its refreshing to be wrong when reading a suspense or mystery trying to guess the who and what.

This book was the perfect example that not all books have to be filled with tons of action to keep you turning the pages. Every character was interesting and you wanted to know more about each even though at first you didn’t understand why all these characters were being introduced. But eventually the author reveals those reasons when the story lines intersect for what was a tense yet very satisfying conclusion.
