This roamnce, medical thriller has action, suspense, romance, plot twists and turns, and quite a few red herrings.
"Hidden Motive" is a Christian suspense novel with some romance. It's a very fast, suspenseful read. It's a case of "everything that can go wrong will go wrong" with no pauses in between. The suspense was created by physical danger to the two main characters and by trying to discover the truth about what Sable's grandpa had done and had discovered. There were a few, minor things that were never fully explained by the end of the book. However, surviving and stopping the bad guys seemed to be the...more
Someone killed Sable Chamberlain's grandfather, Josiah, and she was determined not only to clear his name of fraud but to find his killer unless he killed her first.

Sable and her trusted friend Paul Murphy, found themselves traveling with a bus load of strangers trying to survive the Ozark roads covered with ice from the storm. Not really knowing if one or more could be after them, they still offer them a place to stay at Sables' family home in the middle of the back woods. Cave adventures, acci...more

Not that much thrilled, stoy lies and revolves on the same concepts...group of people, who is hurting whom, in between reading the same letter from grandpa, praying god, so on and so forth....at the end, the expected two comes out safely....to give back bone, the cave house, attic, old things !

I love caverns and caves and the mystery of them and this book is set in that area. It didn't get a 5 from me because of some of the confusion with the different ore's and minerals in the mining process.. just didn't keep my interest with that. But the suspense was great!
Couldn't get into this one. Boring. Cliche. It is written by a husband-wife team whose pen name is Hannah Alexander. The writing never flows. It is like they each took turns writning a chapeter and didn't check to see what the other had done.
Actually, I didn't finish this book. I got about half way through and decicded I didn't care for the story. I may pick it up again, later, and give it another try.
I truly enjoyed this hbook aving grown up in Missouri and being familiar with many of the stop along the way in this whodunit mystery.
It held my attention the whole way through. Every time I thought I had figured out 'whodunit', I had to change my mind again!
This book was really good. It was a little predictable at times, but still good.
I remember really liking this book, fairly suspenseful and a quick read.
It's a mystery. I've read it 3 times and can never remember who did it.
Excellent so far - ch 6

Made better by an actual cavern climb!
Just the right amount of "christian" comments.
