It took me until chapter 11 to really begin to enjoy this book. Before that I kept losing concentration. I nearly quit reading but glad I didn't because it was a pretty good book after all.

Nice christian book. Doesn't hit you over the head, feels like a Hallmark Movie Special.

"Hideaway" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. This novel is the first in a series, but it reads like a stand-alone novel.

The characters were engaging and complex. The various characters dealt with real issues in realistic ways. I've been consistently impressed by how Hannah Alexander's characters come across as real people.

The details about the area and small town life brought the story alive in my imagination. There were some ER medical scenes at the beginning. The technical terms were fre

A review from my old blog...

I read a couple of books by this author, a pen name for a husband and wife duo, a few years back. I enjoyed the books but I must not have been absolutely captivated by them because I didn't rush out or even casually pursue subsequent books published by the pair.

The jury is out on whether or not I will still hold to that assumption.

After this book, the first in the Hideaway series, I would go out and check out the next book from the library.

I did enjoy this book and e

While I like books that deal with issues of faith I haven't read many that are classified as "Christian Fiction". I started this book because I was looking for books either written by Missouri authors, or set in Missouri, and this series takes place in the Ozarks. I liked the familiar names of places I have often been, and the book turned out to be enjoyable. The main character, Cheyenne Allison, is an ER physician who is forced to take a leave of absence from her Columbia Mo hospital following ...more

This was my first Hannah Alexander book, and I loved the characters and the details of the story. I could just picture all of the scenery and they way folks looked. I love how she incorporated faith and tried to explain how just because someone says they're Christian, doesn't make them a good follower of Christ.

A terrific Christian romance/mystery. Love the small town of Hideaway and it's residents. The book has a great plot that will keep you captivated to the very end. The book is well written and has great character development. If you enjoy a good clean romance/mystery this just might be the book for you.

Ok book. This book was interesting about an ER doc that leaves for the "country" on an extended sabbatical. I liked the character development and the fact that main characters did not like Christian as she thought they were hypocritical. Only after meeting some Christians actually walked the walk they talked did she find herself thinking more about God. I wished the ending was a little more substantial in the main character’s development – it was as if you turned the page to a new chapter and ev ...more

Great book!

Loved it but didn't want it to end! The relationship between Dane and Cheyenne could have been developed more. Will be watching for the next one

Slow start because I always had something "better" to read - but when I finished it, the end was surprising and not as predictable as I thought.

I absolutely love this book !!!!!! I would probably say that any book by this author is amazing !! The only thing is that I love to reread books, but I can't do that with this authors' books. Because of the way the plot is woven, there is no enjoyment the second time around because you already know what happens.
This was a very sad book, as far as someone minor yet major dying right at the beginning. I felt as though the characters came alive, and it really mattered what happened to them.

Once again Hannah Alexander captures your imagination, introducing characters with heart and soul and settings with vivid realism. With thrilling suspense interwoven with gentle romance, humour, and medical drama, Hannah Alexander has served up a tale that leaves you waiting anxiously for more. Hideaway is a stellar debut in a riveting new series.

It started out to be quite predictable: I knew right away that Cheyenne would move to Hideaway and that she would fall in love with Dane. It got better as the story unfolded, and there were some surprises. Probably won’t continue this series.

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. The first half wasn't very interesting, but it started getting better towards the end. I'm excited to read the rest of the series.

A mystery with just the right amount of romantic undertones -- each thread holding its own, yet neatly interwoven for a compelling read.
