  • Gripping Read

    The Hiding Place is Book 3 in the Morgan Brookes series and each book just gets better and better. I absolutely love this series with Morgan , Ben and team. This team they all care and put their hearts and souls into solving cases and this case of the missing nine year old Charlie is no exception. You can feel the tenseness in the small town, smell the fear of the detectives and the residents. The pages fly by as the team scrambles with yet another missing girl after finding Charlie. Morgan and Ben leave no holds barred trying desperately to find their perpetrator. Cant wait for Book 4 to see where Morgan and Ben takes us.

  • Good Plot

    The Hiding Place by Helen Phifer is the 3rd in the Detective Morgan Brookes series. Series Information: (Warning – May contain spoilers from previous books) Morgan Brookes has always dreamed of being a detective. As a rookie officer, she finds the body of a woman, and is catapulted into the Crime Investigation Department under the direction of DS Ben Matthews, where she will work with him, Amy and Des.  After losing her mother, she finally got to know her dad, but Stan is now dead.  Meanwhile, she has learned that her biological father is a rapist and a killer, and is now in jail. My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) When 9 year old Charlotte (Charlie) Standish goes missing, the hunt is on.  Her mother, assuming that Charlie's dad was going to pick her up,  left her alone while she went and partied with a friend.  She didn't notice her daughter was missing until the next day. While Morgan is checking out Charlie's school, she learns of another girl that disappeared 15 years ago, but everyone assumed she ran off after her boyfriend, and the investigation was dropped.  Even though there are very few similarities in the cases, Morgan can't let Eleanor's disappearance go. When Charlie's body is found, the team barely has time to grieve, as another young girl is missing.  10 year old Macy Wallace went to the corner store while her mom was at work, and hasn't been seen since. Meanwhile, Morgan is getting a lot of romantic interest from a journalist,  but her feelings for Ben seem to be getting in the way. My Opinions:    First, I love this author.  However, I get so annoyed when an author has a female lead drink a lot or  fall for some guy who you know is too smooth right from the get-go.  It lowers the integrity of the character, and I was really disappointed with Helen Phifer for doing both of these things, and that is the only reason this is not a 5 star read. The plot was great, and the action non-stop.  As always, the short chapters and the speed of the events make it a really fast read.  I really like the characters, and they all seems to stand up for the others, although there was a little dissention at one point. The end had a bit of a cliff-hanger that allows us to be prepared for the next book....which I'm looking forward to reading!

  • Action, emotion

    This was my first read in this series and I was not lost I thought the author did an excellent job giving you background so you understood I liked Morgan and Ben I made the mistake of thinking this was a mystery thriller and the first time I met the killer, child snatcher, I knew. Which tells me I misunderstood the genre. Barring that it was a good read. There is action and you feel the emotions and frustration of Morgan. The author did a great job of putting you in Morgans shoes. Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for the arc. I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions.

  • fast, easy read

    This book was given to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This has quickly become one of my favorite series. Morgan Brookes, who is still a rookie detective, somehow ends up in the middle of the investigation and face to face with the killer. When 2 girls go missing within days of each other, Ben, Amy, Des and Morgan search desperately for them. You won't be disappointed if you like non-stop action.

  • Truly Fabulous!

    DC Morgan Brookes is back in this third instalment from Helen Phifer. Morgan is called to lead a hunt when nine-year-old Charlotte "Charlie" Standish vanishes and her hysterical mother, Amanda, reports her missing. This enthralling thriller moves at a rapid pace and has several unpredictable twists. It is told primarily from Morgan’s perspective but other points of view also feature and both the investigation and Morgan’s troublesome personal life are intriguing plot threads. Set in the small town of Rydal Falls, Cumbria, the reader is treated to a fully rounded tale set in the present day and the feelings between Morgan and Ben Matthews, her sergeant continue, but there's a new guy on the horizon. There is plenty of drama, tension and suspense throughout and many police procedural elements are incorporated ensuring I remained entrenched in the story. The Hiding Place is a must for fans of realistic, true-to-life procedurals. Helen Phifer's superb writing continues to wow me and it will be interesting to see what's in store for DC Brookes in the next instalment. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
