For the multi-blog TBR Challenge, our theme of the month was series catch up. Now, I have an embarrassment of riches on this one because I tend to be pretty lackadaisical about finishing up entire series of books. Since I have so many books to choose from, I took forever to pick out a book to read. In the end, I happened across Hannah Alexander’s 2008 release, Hideaway Home and decided to give it a whirl. I’ve enjoyed several of the Hideaway books published for Love Inspired’s contemporary sus ...more

Childhood friends separated during WWII return home to find conflict seeping through their quiet Ozarks town, as well as through their own relationship. I liked both of the main characters and I enjoyed the very first part of the book, with the two of them separated, thinking of each other, and reading their letters. That they would have to live with how the war changed them, that was pretty compelling. However, the suspense plot was unengaging and not very strongly or clearly developed. Reading ...more
I enjoyed this book to a certain extent, and I'm glad I read it, but there were parts where it seemed like not much was happening. The details from history that the author put in were nice and helped set the scene, and I enjoyed the two main characters, Red and Bertie.

3.5 stars, really. It was an interesting set up for a romance novel...childhood friends, high school sweethearts, separated by the war for three years, sure, but he came back home to the Ozarks and she was in California. Fully half the book had them separated and thinking back on their times together and rereading war letters. Then there was a mystery that each was trying to solve. There wasn't actually much time for romance, honestly. They ran parallel to each other more than coming together. I ...more

Red Meyer has come home from the war in Italy a wounded and broken man and he decides that he is not good enough for his sweetheart Bertie Moennig. Bertie has other ideas and when her father dies and Red tells her not to come home to Hideaway, Missouri she does not listen to him. Her father has died under mysterious circumstances and needs to find out why.

This is the last book of a series and I think I missed out by not reading them in order. This book was okay but it does not make me want to re

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters right off the bat, Bertie and Red just grabbed my heart. I loved the mingling of history and mystery and romance. The author did a wonderful job of pulling you in and trying to figure out what was going on and even had me convinced it was someone else for a while and did all of this while keeping it clean and showing how God was working in these characters lives.
Loved it....going back now to read the whole series!

Hideaway Home plunks the reader down smack in the middle of World War II America where Bertie (Roberta) Moenning, is being trained as a machinist in the Hughes aircraft factory in California that's putting out military equipment for the war effort. The book is a mystery with an underlying theme of the distrust and hatered German Ameicans faced during the war.

The conclusion of the Hideaway series takes us back to the beginning, telling the love story of Bertie and Red during WWII. I liked how it changed time period from the rest of the series, making it a completely different story, yet with familiar characters. The suspense kept me guessing, and I was completely surprised by how things turned out.

This book was okay. The plot was slow, and the authors filled the gaps with lots of repetitive details. How many times did we have to read that Arielle Potts doesn't quite fit in the town of Hideaway? There was somewhat of a surprise twist at the end, at least.

it sounded like a good story, but was soooo slow and boring, no drama, no suspense, nothing to keep you wanting to read more. very disappointed with this book. giving it one star is being really nice.
This wasn't a bad book it was just "okay." Pretty predictable and just sort of...boring.
