"Last Resort" is a mystery featuring a rather unique character: Noelle Cooper, literature's apparently first Christian psychic. She is gifted with "intuition" and an ability to vaguely see into the future or to see events that are unfolding even while she isn't present. There's a study guide at the back of the book with questions for book clubs and church groups to discuss. One of the questions touches on a scripture in first Corinthians, which very clearly states that spiritual gifts that exist ...more

A review from my old blog...

(joint review of both Safe Haven and Last Resort)

I absolutely love these next two books in the series.

Thankfully Alexander did not keep the all of the characters from the first book. Too many characters makes for a very messy story. The characters don't disappear, they simply take a back seat.

The stories Alexander crafted for both of these books hemmed tighter together, if there were different parts and also involved much more serious situations, people dying and the
Prepare for a suspenseful story, that compels you to continue as long as possible to find out what is going to happen. You will meet some of the same people fromt he beginning of the series, plus additional characters that will dominate this story.

Nice to find a Christian based series, reflecting their struggles and growth.

A clean, stand alone, with an HEA.

This is the third book in this particular series. It's an easy cozy read, mystery, great fiction and romance all pulled in together. I'm always up for a book with a medical theme and this one fits for me. They mystery part of the book isn't gruesome, but yet keeps you in enough suspense that you want to find out what happens.

i thought this book was intriguing. i was eager to find out who did it and why. it was a good read. i love suspense, weak, mild, or intense, this one being mild in my opinion. well written. felt i may have missed something though due to it being a part of a series and only having read this one. i liked it.

One of the better stories in the Hideaway series, if you are reading for the mystery. I wish there'd been a bit more on the developing relationship between Noelle and Nathan, but it really is a minor critique. Overall, a solid story with plenty of suspense. Once I got to the climax, I had a hard time putting the book down.

Ridiculous and convoluted mystery. The body count apparently continues to rise over several years while every single person involved remains completely clueless. Including the so-called family members with "God's insight" (not psychic, mind you) who were equally oblivious. Eye-rolling conclusion! Plus, most of the characters were fairly unappealing.

I liked this book. I did not see the outcome because I thought she was a very unlikely person to do the things that were done. Was I foiled!!
If you would like an easy book to read, choose this one. A good book for the weekend.

All I can say is that it is not the best of Hannah Alexander.I have tried so many times to read the book again which for me is almost never a problem but with this book i just can't because i get so bored with it.I like Hannah Alexander as an author but she missed the mark on this one.

This was the first book of the Hideaway series that I read. I enjoyed it so I looked for more in the series. The second one I've started hasn't held my attention like this one did.

Awesome book! Suspense, romance, mystery, forgiveness. I just wish I would have realized it was book three in the series before I started it!
Decent Christian mystery. Good writing, fast paced, intriguing medical issues.

Good book, easy read, great for a light weekend book. I did not see the end coming, which was nice. I think I will be picking up another book in this series to read.
