Let me preface this blog entry with an apology. I have been reading quite a bit, but just haven’t gotten around to writing about it. I promised this review to C.J. Miller last year! I just recently got around to reading the book over the summer. This is what comes from having hundreds of books at home to read. So, here we go!

Hiding His Witness opens with main character Carey Smith walking home from work. As she is passing an alley, she thwarts an attempted murder in progress. When detective Reil

WOW! This is one of the BEST books I’ve read in awhile. All the charactors in this book, besides the bad guys were easy to like. Carrie was running from two people that wanted her dead. Detective Reilly and his family were there to protect her. This book had it all, action, romance, and lots of suspense. This was a book I found hard to put down. I know I will be re reading this book again. It was hard to find a sample because the whole book is just so good!

What a great debut book by C.J. Miller! My favorite parts of the story happened at hero Reilly Truman's family ranch. His tough, loving family really reminded me of the main family in Maya Banks's KGI series.

Reilly and Carey have palpable chemistry, even when her life's in danger and the world is falling apart around them. I'm hoping that Reilly's brothers get their own books soon. *fingers crossed*

Enjoyed reading this story. Familiar plot but every author approaches things differently and I liked this new author's approach and voice. Good characters with twist to the usual trope. Solid debut book. Looking forward to reading more by this author in the future.

Also, I am really hoping to read Brady's story in the future. Loved him the moment he showed up on the page (or kindle screen, as it were).

This was C.J. Miller's first published book and I think she did an excellent job. She has the ability to crisply describe her scenes and keeps the story movnig along. I generally do not read books from this genre but I very much enjoyed reading this one. Excellent job and I am looking forward to reading her next one. Well done!

The first 3/4th of this book was about a 4 star book. But toward the end when it should have been the climax I really couldn't get into it. So the last part I only read a few minutes here and there really just to finish the book.

Detective Reilly Truman must keep his witness,"Carey", to attempted murder by a serial killer safe until the suspect is caught. What Reilly does not know is that "Carey" is also running from a mobster who wishes to kill her. This is a short novel with some elements that stretch reality.

Fluff with little to no character development but I wasn't exactly expecting high quality or anything.
