  • A great story about family with suspense

    I loved this book! As usual Nora Roberts delivers a fabulous, interesting story with suspense running throughout. The story is about the famous Sullivan family of Hollywood actors/directors etc. Not long after the book starts 10 year old Caitlyn is kidnapped, but escapes, and the perpetrators are brought to justice, one shockingly in her own family. During her escape she is helped by Maggie, Julia & Dillon, a family living nearby, and these stay lifelong friends, which added strand to the story. The rest of the book is about Cate's story, moving to Ireland, coming back to the States, and finding her way in the world, but with the scandal of her kidnapping hounding her in the press now and again over the years, usually brought on by a certain someone seeking publicity. The Sullivan family sounded such a great family, rich and famous, but all with great family values and every one of them there for Cate when she needed it, although she had a very strong personality and was very independent. The suspense part was just enough for me, always there in the background, with a few incidents, but not scary enough to ruin the book, the 'bad guys' were caught in the end, and there was a lovely ending. I really enjoy the way Nora Roberts writes, I've always been a big fan of hers, her style is just so easy reading and I couldn't put this book down. Highly recommended.

  • Escaping the rat race and the lure of gold-diggin

    A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel. Caitlyn Sullivan, a daughter of Hollywood royalty, was already a star at ten, but still 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. Despite her glamorous background, Cate was a shrewd, scrappy survivor, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bruised and terrified girl huddled in his ranch house kitchen—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge and comfort, reuniting her with her loved ones. Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years away in Ireland, sheltered and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul. Then, finally, she returned to Los Angeles, hoping 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… L

  • Stylish, Slick Escapism

    Hideaway is my first book by Nora Roberts and it was certainly a cracking induction for me! The famous Sullivan family have all returned home to their ranch in Big Sur to celebrate the life of their patriarch Liam Sullivan who has passed. The daughter of Hollywood royalty, nine-year-old Caitlyn (Cate) is playing hide-and-seek outside with her cousins when she's kidnapped. Cate manages to escape her captors, running through the woods until stumbling upon an unlocked and inhabited house with lights; perhaps somewhere to feel safe? When teenager Dillon Cooper and his family find her in the kitchen quivering, bleeding and bruised, they listen to her story, provide refuge and comfort, and reunite her with her loved ones. But Cate doesn't yet know this harrowing ordeal and the aftershocks will follow her around for the rest of her life... Nora Roberts clearly excels at writing family sagas about complicated relationships, family dynamics, love, and betrayal. It wasn't long after starting to read Hideaway when it started to weave its magic, drawing me into the warmth and strength of the Sullivan family and their close bonds and kinship. Cate was surrounded by love, tradition, and generations of relatives so her abduction thwarted a life that was guaranteed great glory and accomplishment. The impact was portrayed unobtrusively, without too much suspense and angst but still showing how that trauma influenced her career and life choices. Hideaway is a story of deceit, manipulation, and vengeance... but it's also a story of strength and conquering adversity to find happiness and hope. The characters are well-fleshed out as relationships develop slowly making them more believable. This engaging, enjoyable read really worked for me and I was disappointed when it had to end. Highly Recommended! I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Little, Brown Book Group UK/ Piatkus via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Hideaway

    At the second time of reading it is just as good and exciting as the first time. Nora as JD Robb has an enormous talent and imagination for a good, solid story line. I am beyond awed!
