Review - Hiding by Jenny Morton Potts

About the Book:

A gripping psychological thriller with chilling twists, from a unique new voice.

Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.

This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?

Book Links:


Hiding by Jenny Morton Potts is not like any book I have read in recent times. The book delivers on the psychological thriller that it promises to be.

What I loved:
- Character Development: The author has concentrated on character development to the fullest. The protagonists are solid. There are a couple of secondary characters who have been given ample attention as well.
- Plot: The underlying theme of a robbery and murder and its affect on not only those involved but also on those around them made for an interesting read. The element of revenge only added to it.
- Setting: I enjoyed the backdrop of the Scottish Highlands.
- Narrative: I quite enjoyed the dual voice in narration and the alternating timelines.

What could be better:
- The pace lagged a bit for a thriller.

About the Author:

Returned to wonderful England – and unlikely ever to leave again – Jenny, with assistance from loyal hound, walked and swam her way back to manageable health.
Jenny would like to see the Northern Lights but worries that’s the best bit and should be saved till last. Very happily, and gratefully, partnered for 28 years, she ought to mention, and living with inspirational child in Thaxted, Essex.
