Hiding In The Shadows

Accident victim Faith Parker has done what her doctors feared she never would: awakened from the coma that held her prisoner for weeks. But she has no memory of the crash that nearly killed her—or the life that led up to it. Nor does she remember journalist Dinah Leighton, the steadfast friend who visited her in the hospit

The plot of the book has been explained by other reviewers so I won't get into it here. Basically, Faith Parker wakes up in a hospital bed with amnesia and a connection to her best friend and spends the story trying to find her friend and afterward find the friend's killer.

I'm an inveterate re-reader, but this book goes into my delete pile rather than the re-read pile because I really didn't like how it ended. Now you can see the plot-twist ending coming from a mile away, but I seriously had fa
This book was no where near as good as the 1st in the series. I didn't feel a connection with the main characters at all, plus there was hardly any background info on the bad guys either. Am I the only one who thought the ending was totally weird? I'm probably being generous with 3 stars.

Another really good one! I read it the first time a couple of years worth reading again and again!

Mediocre Entry in the Bishop Series

HIDING IN THE SHADOWS is the story of a man and the two women that he ends up loving...but there is an eerie connection between the women. This book is a paranormal romantic suspense, but the emphasis is more on the suspense than the romance.

THE STORY: Faith Parker awakes from a coma without any memory of who she is. What she finds out is that her only friend, Dinah Leighton, has disappeared. Faith fears that Dinah is in danger because of her actions as Faith b
Nancy Brady
A psychic thriller about a woman who disappears and another who loses her memory. Chasing down a story gets Dinah Leighton into trouble, and only her friend Faith Parker and her lover Kane can figure it out. But will time run out before Faith and Kane can save her and solve the mystery? A real twist ending, too.
While the writing was good, I didn't care for the storyline. Taking over someones elses body just didn't seem right.
Bev Lee
the only thing I didn't really care for was the ending. the main content was really good though.
This one wasn't as good as the first one, and I think it's because I didn't really like any of the characters. Faith was annoying, and the way she was always questioning everything... you think you're psychic, yet you question everything psychic to the point of not helping at all. Kane was one-dimensional, and I wanted him to be more. Bishop is an ass, and I feel like he should be smarter. They were weak compared to the first in the series, but the story was okay. I'll read more in the series, b ...more
Hiding in the Shadows is book two in the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series. Kay Hooper has a way of pulling you deep into the story while putting you on the edge of your seat in suspense.

Kane MacGregor can feel distance between him and Dinah Leighton. They've only been seeing each other for about six months, but Kane can feel Dinah holding back, and he wants more. Trying to appease Dinah and keep a bit of distance when she's in this mysterious, preoccupied mood feels wrong, but what can

Warning Note: I never read the last page of a mystery.

What would be the point? This being mentioned, my review might not be to your tastes. I BELIEVE you can guess the basic concept of the book from what is found above or on the back of the book. Maybe you’ll even look at the other reviews on here & it will tell you what happens in the book. Personally, I think if you know what is going to happen in a book why bother reading it? It’s much like movie trailers sometimes. When I actually go to
I discovered this book after reading and being intrigued by another title in the series, so I had certain expectations of this one. I was surprised that it didn't match the first in tone or pacing; except for the recurring character of Noah Bishop, the two stories aren't at all related in style.

The narrative was enjoyable if not entirely riveting, but the suspense did gather momentum toward the end. That was good. Then the author pulled the ultimate spooky rabbit out of her hat, and that was gr

Hiding in the Shadows is the second book in the Bishop series. I was surprised to realize that it is completely different from the first book in the series. Bishop is the only common link but had a very secondary role her and the truth is that the type of story is completely different from the first one.

There is the mystery of what really happened to Faith in that car accident and the mystery of what happened to Dinah. Unlike the first book in this series, their paranormal powers are not relate

Had my attention from the first sentence. Haven't read much paranormal mystery before. A young woman comes out of a coma to find the woman who was helping her has gone missing. She is getting images of her friend. Boyfriend of missing girl protects her and works with her to find out what has happened. The ending is a twist.
Brent Soderstrum
An enjoyable paranormal mystery by Kay Hooper. She tends to give too big a role to peripheral characters but there is always a little twist in her books which make them enjoyable.

In this one Faith is in a car accident in which she is in a coma. One visitor shows up on a regular basis-Dinnah. Then Dinnah just disappears. A few weeks later Faith comes out of her coma and she has no memory at all. She does have dreams about this Dinnah who was visiting her but she can't figure out who she is or wha
Wow. I really enjoyed the first Bishop crime unit book and loved the cliff hanger chapter endings. And I admit, I was a bit leery about reading the 2nd book because this type of series could really lend itself towards a formalistic writing style. But I was completely wrong as far as this book is concerned. Completely different type of opening. An introduction to Bishop's character by someone who knows him, so no gentle "how do you do's." While the male lead's protective instincts and the willing ...more

I've really gotten hooked on Kay Hooper's books. I plowed through this one. Didn't even have time to add it to my "Reading" section before I needed to list in under "Read."

The paranormal is the "norm" for Hooper, but she does it with flair and makes it interesting. I keep expecting her to show her entire hand, but she seems to keep a few cards back waiting on the next book.

You never know what you're going to get when you pick up another one of her books, even if it's in a series. More of a love

This is the second in the Shadows Trilogy and I must say I enjoyed the first one better (rated 4 stars on this blog in July 2008).

This novel doesn't feature the main character from the first book, and in fact could be read as a stand alone. In this book Faith Parker has a car accident and has finally awoken from her coma without any memory of the crash, or her life before the accident.

Meanwhile, journalist Dinah Leighton has gone missing. Dinah regularly visited Faith in the hospital and made su
Consuelo Morales
Easy, fast read and even though some of the concept was a little far fetched the suspense was not too bad. I am intrigue enough about Bishop that I will continue with this series. Like I said it reads fast so on to the next book.
I would actually give this one 3.5 stars but as that wasn't an option I bumped it up to 4. Interesting plot line and characters.
Dakota Simpson
This book was a pretty good one, but it was pretty slow. It was still about a telepathic woman who searches for a serial killer, but it was pretty slow. Either way it was a pretty good book. This woman named Faith got into a car accident and got put into a coma. Many days later she awoke without her memory intact. Slowly she starts to regain her memory and in the process she has these weird dreams about this serial killer, which just keep happening to come true. The FBI show up on her doorstep a ...more
I enjoyed this book much more than the first one of this series. I think my better understanding of the main character Bishop and his role helped as well as accepting the role of psychic abilities play in the story. I don't like the fact that the woman no matter how strong and brave she is, undoubtedly always ends up in bed with the male hero of the story... But that seems the way most women authors write. However aside from that, I did like the book, and would recommend it as a good read.
Really enjoyed the storyline - kept you interested the whole time wanting to know what happened next.
Melenia Gibson
Not my favorite of Kay Hooper books but good enough I still read it in one sitting.
Paranormal but not overdone. This is more a romance story than mystery.

This one continues the whole series but can stand alone as well!! Bishop is more indirectly involved in this book but does make his appearance! The real story is the woman just getting out of a coma and her friends disappearance while she was in the coma! At the core these are mystery stories but always with a bit of a paranormal twist which makes it that much more interesting!! There is an extremely bizarre twist at the end of this one that I am still not sure I completely understand but I have ...more
Love love love when I can't figure out who the baddie is! Definitely enjoying the series!
