A good read especially if you like mysteries.

I am beginning to think that when the author starts the books she has no idea who did it, then somewhere in the middle she picks the most unlikely and illogical candidate and then tailors the rest of the story to make it work.

And the story line with her ex-husband was complete shit. First the guy tells her he is going to try to gain primary custody of their 14 year old daughter. She sends the daughter to the fathers for his regular custodial weekend and travels from New York to Rhode Island for

Okay fluff mystery, but pay attention to all the little characters, even those not mentioned often. You never know who might have done it. Again, seems to have too many undeveloped characters. She needs to work on making the readers relate to the characters.

Again, this gripping fast-paced tale by Mary Jane Clark astounded me and with the myriad of clues to point whodunit, which still left me clueless. Ms Clark sticks to the classic Agatha Christie formula where everyone is a suspect, but it's either she didn't give any obvious clues or I might've missed it, but I never guessed the killer's identity - like in her other books.

This one is different from those I've read, most of the ones had broadcast reporters as heroines covering a crime, they usuall

I bought this book by mistake at a charity used book sale. It was on a table marked Mary Higgens Clarke and looked at the title and hadn't read it so I bought it. It wasn't until I got home that it was by an author I had never heard of before. It is much the same type of book Mary Higgens Clarke writes. It was an easy read with lots of viable suspects in this who done it. The story follows a single mom trying to get an intern job on a NY television show.

The KEY news team is enroute to Newport, Rhode Island where they will be filming segments all week, when a body is found in an old slave tunnel on the Wagstaff property. The body is believed to be that of Charlotte Wagstaff Sloane who disappeared 14 years ago.

For starters the title really doesn't seem to match the content of the book itself. The story intertwines around the lives of a intern reporter, new to the field but experienced with life, hot on the heels of a killer from years past.

As always the story of an investigation into a murder that tracks back in history, has a gripping effect as clues and suspects are drawn from the woodwork through thorough investigation and following trails long gone cold over time.

This was a typical mystery novel. There were many characters to guess who dunnit with. This time I was off base, so maybe it tricked me better than most. Grace is a novelist who is an older intern for a news broadcast company. She is inadvertently involved when a few deaths happen during her time in Newport. She has had conversations with a couple of victims which make her a liability for the murderer. So, she is next on the list. At the same time as all of this, she has it bad for the producer ...more

"Being a KEY To America intern may be hazardous to your health. But even when one is nearly killed in an accident and another disappears, this year's crop of hopefuls are oblivious to the menace. Grace Callahan arrives in Newport for a weeklong broadcast from"America's First Resort," determined to launch a future in television journalism. The KEY interns have been told that at the end of the summer one of them will get a full-time job. As their number dwindles, Grace must face the real

This was okay. for once I actually didn't figure it out before the mystery was revealed. I think what stopped me from loving this was Grace. I liked her okay but I didn't love her. I think she had some of her priorities mixed up. I don't personally feel that a job that requires you to be on call 24/7 is good choice for a single mom. I know that probably isn't PC nowadays but it's how I feel. I don't know. And there were times I think she should of reported things to the police (the missing perso ...more

An interesting book, even though it could have been much better.

The first word that comes to my mind is cluttered - the story is cluttered with characters. And almost all of these have skeletons in their closets which should make them suspects of the murders. Instead of creating more suspense, this made the story overcomplicated and put me off a bit. Even though the murderer himself is almost out of the focus, I suspected him somewhere around the middle of the book, particularly because he seem

Great summer read, especialy since I was heading to Newport that week. I normally don't like murder mystery or anything dealing with modern times (usually am a fan of historical fiction) but this one was cute! It wasn't too deep, or it didn't affect my thougth process much,but it did keep me thoroughly entertained while out at the pool. I do love Newport and this took place there, and dealt a lot with the setting and surroundings.

Primeiro livro dessa autora que leio e achei ótimo. Com detalhes da rotina de trabalho de um telejornal, ela deu um clima de realidade ao texto, que narra uma saga de 3 assassinatos ocorridos num intervalo de 14 anos.

O final é surpreendente, mesmo que todos na trama são suspeitos. A autora não deixou a impressão de que alguém era inocente. O livro tem mais de 300 páginas, o que acho exagerado para uma trama policial, mas não "enrolou" em nenhum momento.

Another book on the plane to Boston. I picked up this one because I was looking for a Newport mystery since we were going there. Overall, I enjoyed this one, and should have figured out "who done it" but I didn't. It wasn't really what I was looking for, but when we got to Newport, I enjoyed the background info.

Hide Yourself Away was a fantastic novel. The plot moved very quickly and was constantly evolving which made you to want to keep reading. Mary Jane Clark, developed the characters nicely even though there were many of them. I thought that this was a very fun quick read that left you guessing throughout who may have been the murderer.

This book is part of the 12 KEY News Series. She is a great author when you feel likea "comfortable mystery". They have little hard core violence and the language is not offensive. It is the equivalent of eating your favorite comfort food. Knowing this, I rated her book a 4 as she delivered what I needed for this novel.

Quick, steady paced cozy mystery read about a murder that occurred 14 years ago in a slave tunnel connected to a mansion. When new people begin to fall prey at a killer who is among them, it is up to an intern at a news company to solve the murder before more people die.

**Loved the cover, beautiful Victorian style mansions along the coast on a warm summer evening with purple hued skies**

This is a mystery of "Who did it?" Everyone looks suspect involving a murder that occurred 14 yrs. ago...and continues with a chain of events leading to the culprit. This is a simple-read. I will more than likely donate this book to my local library. It will not get "shelved" with my collection.

This book was alright. It had a really twisty ending, but after reading another one of her books this one wasn't as good. It has the same plot and idea from the other books. It all has to deal with news people. It was alright.

I probably should give this a 4 just because I love a good murder mystery and I REALLY love a good murder mystery during the summer! This was a fun random pick off the library shelf that will result in me reading more of her books.

Wow! Total suspense. 14 year old murder/mystery/disappearance comes to light. Then KEY interns start being missing or murdered. No clue at all who the murderer is til the very. Extremely well written. Each page holds your attention!! Great read for sure!! I love Mary Jane Clark's writing.

A unique setting behind the scenes in the television world. I liked the protagonist. Loved the aspect of her being a single mom. And Rhode Island is a state never used, and I enjoyed that quite a bit.
Jul 18, 2015 Anne rated it did not like it
I would give it two stars for the slightly interesting complexity of plot, but have to take one of those back for simplicity of writing style. The author's writing style is so simple it felt as if it was written by a juvenile for juveniles.

This was a good beach read. I accidentally got this book from the library thinking it was a novel by Mary Higgins Clark. I lucked out! A good, fast read.
