    I love the idea of the overall story line in this novel, but I simply couldn't get into this book. It was a struggle to connect to the characters and I wish that wasn't the case. For me, the overall flow of the chapters just didn't click and it got slow. There is a lot of issues discussed in this book and also a sort of awkward affair type situation. Now I think for the most part this was dealt with in a decent way and it's not the reason I didn't love this book. This is just my opinion and I ha ...more

    What a wonderful book this was!! The whole time I was picturing myself sitting on the front porch of this great place they called The Hideaway. It is a fabulous story about love, life, family and friends. I loved it from the very first page to the very last page and I didn't want this book to end. Highly recommend to everyone!!!!!

    THE HIDEAWAY is a charming Southern novel about a ramshackle Victorian house that had the power to change the lives of two women desperately in need of something more.

    This was an absolutely perfect and charming Southern fiction story. I fell in love with the wonderful cast of characters, and the setting made me want to live in Sweet Bay! The author's writing really made the story feel real and it was easy to imagine myself immersed in this world. I'm already hoping there will be a sequel to this book so I can see what the characters are up to next!

    This debut novel has created quite a buzz and is currently #19 on Amazon's most sold list not to mention having nearly 500 reviews. The vast majority are 4 and 5 star but this book isn't without controversy so there are a number of low ratings (1 and 2 star) as well. So, what's all the fuss about?

    Well, in a nutshell, this is Christian fiction pushing the limits so this book might not be for everyone. In fact, I wasn't sure about it myself and started reading with some trepidation. It wasn't long

    After a whirlwind of activity in August - out of state company, a mini family reunion, heat wave upon heat wave, RSD setbacks - things have finally settled down enough for me to catch up on reviews. Therefore, I'll not tarry. Great premise, good writing, wonderful setting, interesting characters, but I have some serious foundational issues with this novel......

    I finished this controversial little charmer several weeks ago on the eve family arrived from Wyoming. The micro details, such as who wor
