I absolutely love this romantic suspense series by Karen Rose. You Can't Hide was another hit for me. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has wonderful characters. The hero is very appealing and protective, and the heroine is intelligent and resilient. Both are carrying some baggage, but it makes them all the more interesting. I can't wait to get started on the next book in the series.

The apparent suicide of one of Dr. Tess Ciccotelli's patients is soon revealed to be very a complicated setup. So
4 -5 stars – Romantic Suspense

This is another awesome, intense, gripping, and chilling suspense read by Karen Rose. Tess is a strong and compassionate heroine and Aidan is a protective cop hero who's deeply tortured by all the horrors that he's seen on the job, and I really loved them together. It would have been a solid 5 star read, but I was slightly disappointed with the fact that although there is a HEA ending, the H/H never declared/exchanged an official "I love you". Still, it's a great su
Weak thriller , too many dead bodies in a very short time makes the story unrealistic.
Tess Ciccotelli is a psychiatrist and someone is systematically destroying her career and her life.
She meets detective Aidan Reagan assigned to the first case when one of her patients commits suicide but Reagan is not buying the suicide story (naturally). He thinks she is cold, she thinks he is arrogant and subsequently there is an instant attraction.And they fall in love.

What an intense read! Rose never fails to get my heart racing as the suspense starts early & continues to build throughout. The crimes/murders are seriously creepy as the reader witnesses the mental breakdown of the victims as they're driven to commit suicide. All evidence points to the psychiatrist treating them...who hates Tess enough to set her up? A disgruntled patient? An ex-con her testimony help send to prison? Someone from her past? The reader is privy to the villain's thoughts & ...more
Tess Ciccotelli, a psychiatrist, is being set up to look like she’s played a role in the deaths of her patients. Aidan Reagan, a Chicago police detective, was assigned to the case involving her first patient’s death and soon realizes Tess isn’t to blame. However, he’s having a tough time trying to protect her and her patients when Tess insists on protecting their privacy. And, things get complicated when the relationship between the two gets…well, complicated.

This story was riveting and no one w
Oh, there’s definitely a pattern emerging.

This was by far the best book in this quasi-series. Masterfully done suspense, great buildup, and wonderfully twisted villain vied for attention alongside two wonderful lead characters. Neither side of the plot was dominant, they were nicely and masterfully intertwined, complementing each other, pushing the story forward at a nice, steady pace.

I loved both Tess and Aidan, there were so different, yet so similar, both with quite a lot of baggage, both in
Read this one night and a day while on vacay this summer. As always, a fully engaging suspense story with my favorite part- a romantic subplot. The heroine is being framed by a nutter, and i really wasnt sure exactly who was behind it till the end. (She led me a merry chase by throwing in different characters that were highly suspect.) The hero is the cop assigned to the case, who is pretty much prejudiced against from the get go. But, it doesnt take him long to realize she's innocent- not as lo ...more

Tess is a great psychiatrist, she cares about her patients and really wants to help them, when she pronounces a man mentally ill who killed girls the police department turns against her. They don't get to her fast enough when she is brought in to talk to a killer; she almost dies and is left with scars around her throat. Now someone is trying to destroy her, they are driving her patients to commit suicide and framing Tess for it. Aiden is a detective and hates her as much as the rest of the det ...more
This is the second Karen Rose I read within a month, and there is a clear formula she uses.

Strong female role who is capable but looking for a man to protect and look after her. Sexy, strong man who is gentle, yet a "real man". It is full of cliches. A mix of mystery and sex.

Its a great formula and again it worked well!

I'm going to give Karen Rose a break from the reading list for a while as the muscles, strong jaw lines, sexual tension and trying to avoid an obvious attraction kinda merges all

I have come to rely on Karen Rose to deliver nasty villains, and twisted plots and I was not disappointed here. I thought I had the killer figured out a few times and I didn't find out until it was revealed in the book, and I was horrified. There was a wonderful mixture of romance, thriller and terror in You Can't Hide. We meet new characters that I am hoping will be getting their own books down the line, Vito, Tess' brother for one, Murphy, Aidan's partner for another. I had a hard time putting ...more

Karen Rose writes very realistic thrillers and this one is no different. Psychiatrist Tess Ciccotelli has really pissed someone off and they are endeavoring to ruin her career and her life. When detective Aidan Reagan gets involved things heat up. Sparks fly between Tess and Aidan but since she's a suspect (at first anyway) Aidan holds back. It's enjoyable to see them finally get together. There was real personal growth for both Tess (and her family) and Aidan (and his family). I enjoyed the fam ...more
No matter how much this book is characterized as romance/terror, the only terror I found was in the stupidity of the main characters.

Neither the psychiatrist nor the investigating detective thought it strange that a neighbour would be able to call the psychiatrist "when they heard suspicious and scary noises next door" or "when the woman threatened to jump". How could they know who was their neighbour's shrink? If a neighbour really heard/saw those things, they would call the building manager o

Da ich mittlerweile ein paar mehr Bücher von Karen Rose gelesen habe, konnte ich mich an die Vielzahl an Charakteren schon gewöhnen. Allerdings scheinen alle ihre Bücher irgendwie miteinander zusamnen zu hängen - und wenn es nur durch einen oder zwei Charaktere ist - sodass es mir manchmal schwer fällt mich in den Zeitstrang hinein zu versetzen. Mir hätte vorher mal jemand sagen sollen, dass ich ihre Bücher chronologisch lesen sollte. Aber im Buch wurde alles austeichend beschrieben, sodass es d ...more
Konnte mich nicht wirklich überzeugen. Die eigentliche Krimigeschichte war gut und interessant erzählt, aber zum einen störte mich die anscheinend obligatorische Liebesgeschichte zwischen den Protagonisten (die sich natürlich am Anfang haßten) - sie war einfach zu rührselig und teils auch zu explizit. Ich bin nicht prüde, aber für mich sind erotische Geschichten und Krimis nun mal verschiedene Genres. Und auch der Erzählstil insgesamt war mir zu melodramatisch.
Someone is setting up Psychiatrist Tess Ciccotelli to look guilty. A killer is driving her patients to suicide and making it look like she is behind the murders. Detective Aiden Reagan thinks it may be true when Tess refuses to break her oath and give a list of her patients to the cops. But after investigating the case, it becomes clear to Aiden that someone is trying to destroy Tess's career and wants the last victim to be Tess herself.

This is a well balanced romantic suspense book. It had an i

And Karen Rose does it again! I am yet to read one of her books that I haven't done right loved. You Can't Hide did not disappoint, in fact, I think it topped Count to Ten (but I suspect that its just because a Reagan was involved *swoons*). I read this book over the long weekend and was so annoyed that I couldn't read as much as I wanted to. I was forced into spending time with my family when all I wanted to do was find out who the murderer was.

That is probably my favourite part of all of Karen
Saw this book on the "Best Romantic Suspense" List here on GoodReads (#14). I had never read this author so I thought I'd give one of her books a read. The plot was complicated and a little far-fetched for my taste. I liked it enough to sample another book in the future.
Miként került a kezembe? Egy társasjátéktáblás kihíváshoz zöld borítós thrillert kell olvasnom, hogy tovább léphessek. (A „Társasjáték a'la Moly” kihívásról van szó. Jeff Abbott: Sokk – című könyvét kellett volna, de fél évig tologattam, aztán szembejött ez a könyv!)

Elnyújtott, mégis jól felépített könyv, de zavart a lassú kezdés, a hosszú felvezetés. Aztán egész rákaptam és alig vártam a végét. Nem lehet sejteni, hogy ki áll az egész mögött. Nem mondom, hogy nem volt unszimpatikus a viselkedése

I'm new to Karen Rose but if this is how good her books are, and the ones I have read so far have been, I am now a definite convert.

I will be rereading this novel as I read this series in order and will review it at that time.
Boring and unnecessary long. The author enjoys writing books that will make people afraid to go to bed ..I don't think so, she can't even scare a 3yo kid with this kind of a book. Although it was kind of scary how much she focuses on the private lives of the characters and the number of people that were killed in a week or so while the detective was busy fucking the suspect but of course like every good cop he knew she wasn't guilty simply because she is beautiful and he felt in love with her bu ...more

Disappointing. I am usually enthralled by Rose's romantic suspense novels, and find the pages practically turn themselves. But not this one. I found that the story dragged, and began to get repetitive, and also found it quite cliched. I'm not sure what made this one so different to her other books which I've read and loved, but I persevered up to a point and then just gave up on it. There was obviously something about it that I just couldn't engage with, and I didn't want to be put off more of h ...more

It looks like I accidentally deleted all my reviews for this book but I'm not going to bother rewriting one. I'll just say that this is still, so far, my favorite KR book. I love it because while the plot is simple and easy to follow, it isn't simplistic nor amateurish, not that any KR book is! The newer KR books have so much extraneous details that I tend to get lost. Here, KR isn'

One of the indicators that a series is good is when the author keeps you connected to earlier characters while still moving the series forward and devoting the current book to the current story instead of rehashing the past stories. Some authors do this perfectly while some are unable to do it at all, driving me to give up on the series completely.

YOU CAN’T HIDE is the fifth book in Karen Rose’s romantic suspense series. I am very reluctant to even label it as part of a series because each book

4.5 Stars

An intense psychological thriller with an engaging romance.

The mystery is fast paced and engrossing albeit quite disturbing in some respects. Rose has a knack for writing diabolical villains and this is no exception. Nevertheless, it is quite easy to figure out the identity of the culprit if you pay attention to the clues and realize that this type of sadistic sociopathy and hatred can only have an emotional and deeply personal source. For me, the fact that (view spoiler)

Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Karen Rose is the author of numerous romantic suspense books.

Though most of the books can be read as stand-alones, all of her books (except the Hot Pursuit anthology) take place in the same "universe" and have many connected characters. Some of the books are more connected than others.
