A new type of psychic power.
There are holes in the plot/story, but I didn't mind.
I like this author's writing. It's quiet and smooth. You can tell she thinks about the ramifications of the power she gave Addie. There's action and intrigue but not a lot of tension, which I often like. I can't take a lot of stress.

Addie is a 17 year old with a secret psychic curse gift that has made life difficult for her in the past. But now it has brought her to a choice that is a lot to ask of a high school

One of the themes I like to read about in books is when the characters have special abilites which help them to solve murders, a bit like the TV show Medium or in this case it was more The Listener but with a hint of Medium - two of my favourite tv shows. In Hidden Truths which I have to admit was one of the best books in this theme that I have read in a long time as it has to be pretty amazing for me to give it a highly recommended and Hidden Truths by Kristin Coley falls into that category.

Rated 4 Stars

This was a Romantic Suspense which I thought was awesome except for 2 things: 1) there was quite a bit of unbelievable things that happened in the book, and no, I'm not talking about Addie (heroine) being psychic. This was besides of that. 2) there was some "make out" scenes, but no sex, I'm sorry to say.

There was Mystery, Romance, Mature YA, Adult, Suspense, Action filled, Psychic abilities, Undercover Cops, High School, Best Friends, Family, Crime, Corrupt Officials, Drug Traffick

That's a high school boy on the cover, eh?
They didn't make them like that when I was in school.

Everything! :)
Amazing plot! Addie has a paranormal gift that lets her know the answer for all questions. She joins forces with a young undercover cop to solve a mysterious murder case.
This was a very fast-paced read that kept me guessing and wanting more at the end.

I liked this book because Addie has the one of my favorite super powers of ALL time! She can basically answer any questions that is asked of her. I consistently daydream of having this super power, I mean, how cool would it be have this power? I have never read a story with this preminse before and I found it highly original and entertaining.

And another thing I liked about this book was how quickly Addie knew she had to help find the bad guys in this book.

Addie always knows the answers to questions, with no idea why. When she sees her Grandfather reading the newspaper with an article about a lost boy, Addie instantly knows where he is. She desperately wants to go find the boy, but logistically does not know how she can. When she spots a strange boy at her school, she knows he will help her. The two of them are now part of something much bigger than themselves, and everyone's life is at stake.
Not to be a jerk, but the cover does not do the book ju

Going into this, I was intrigued. The premise was so interesting, and I was really excited to dig in! The main character's ability was really cool, and for sure unique. Although it wasn't really explained (we kinda dove right into the middle there, and had to figure it out for ourselves..) it was something that I had never heard of before! Basically, she can see the answer to any question that you ask her (it would really solve the question, 'where did I put my darn phone?!'). It's a "super powe ...more

This certainly wasn’t what I expected when I began reading this book. I like to try my best to forget the blurb while I read after I’ve signed up so I can go into a book “blind” to the synopsis, but it doesn’t always work. Well, in this case the author did a fantastic job of being honest in the description without really giving anything away. There are many secrets and lies in this story, and not everything you think will be accurate. I’m usually on point with my guesses, but with Hidden Truths ...more

Okay, well, this was actually a pretty cool concept. I wasn't sure how it was going to work out with the story, but I think it held up pretty well. I think there were a few times when she knew someone's emotions though even though the question didn't have anything to do with them or sometimes she got information from things that weren't questions at all. So, that was a little messy. Although, there was mention of the possibility that her gift was growing because she was using it in a different w ...more

While this was definitely an interesting and original plot, the story needs a bit more development. It felt a bit shallow, although I did enjoy it overall. A few inconsistencies, but the growing relationship between Jake, the sexy young, extremely young undercover narc and the sassy, unique and even younger Addie was sweet. I'd have loved to get a better understanding of Addie's background or family life, as only briefs glimpses were given, but felt more like filler paragraphs. The story was ver ...more

Ok, so this book was annoying but in a good way, if that makes sense. The story itself was good and I really did want to know what happened in the end. The problem was, it was very unrealistic. It’s a book, I know it’s not meant to be real but it was really unbelievable, like ridiculous! I found it very hard to keep reading sometimes even though I did like where the story was going.

I’m not sure if I’ll go back to this to see how this book ends because I do really want to know but jus

Hidden Truths begins when Addie realizes she knows where a missing boy is, and she knows exactly who can help her. But, she had no idea making this little fact known would change her whole world forever, now she must work with her new friend Jake to figure out what's going on and how they can stop it.

This book was a huge surprise. I was instantly sucked in by this book. The plot line and mystery was just awesome, and the characters were great as well. I really thought it was good, and I look fo

A hidden read!

Hidden truths never stay hidden...

This was such a different and incredibly unique read that will take you on a journey. I love age gap reads and this book surpassed any and all expectations.

I loved the paranormal and mystery element with such a unique gift that the heroine possesses. I cannot wait to read the first of these books. Very good writing and stories.

Full of mystery, truths, questions, answers, family, friends and romance.

Perfect for readers of paranormal romances.

This was one of the best books I've ever read in this genre!

Wow! This story blew me away. Addie is a dynamic, charming and witty character. She's just so everything and very mature for her age. I love her realism and there's no selfishness to her. Jake and the rest of the characters are excellent foils and the whole story was perfect!

Addie is a student that uses her unique powers to help a cop after her powers help her to find a missing student. Now she has joined forces to help a cop. This story has so many layers that is part of the suspense along with the action. If you are a fan of paranormal, you will love this intriguing story.

Book one in the hidden truths series and I know I want to read the next book, the suspense, the drama, the danger, The betrayal, and the hidden gift of Addie's made for a very good story to read. The May/December romance between Jake and Addie was very well portrayed. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Love this story

Very well written and a great plot. It reminds me of the style of Lois Duncan (whom I loved as a teen). I deducted one star because the H & h love story begins when he is already in a relationship. Then it continues for way longer than reasonable without admitting it’s douchey.

Great book! I really enjoyed it and it was a quick read. I was a bit dismayed when a love-triangle was introduced but it ended up not being prominent at all and it was over almost as soon as it began. I look forward to reading the next book!

It's an okay read. I do have reservations though about the age of the h. Nothing explicitly sexual happens between her and the H, but it was still uncomfortable reading the sections where they are intimate.

I loved this book. It was exactly what I needed something fun with a little love and mystery. This book isn’t anything new but it’s a quick and fun read. I love the characters who developed nicely. And I like that there wasn’t instalove. Can’t wait to read more!

A great plotline set off a wonderful read. The characters had such chemistry and the interactions between all of the characters was well written and believable. I loved that she had a gift, though it was hard to deal with at times, it was wonderful to read.

Keeps you guessing

This book will keep you guessing from start to finish. It is a suspenseful thriller that has romantic notes to the story. Jake and Addie are connected in ways that some don't understand. In their search for answers everything will be questioned.

Wow different

This was a really good read, the characters that were younger were not silly or over mature, the story had suspense but nothing really dark. It was a great refreshing read.

Great book! Often I find myself unable to relate to the characters in certain instances, but these people are so down-to-earth. It's been a page turner since page 1. Highly reccomend!
