Start your review of Hidden Charm (Silver Cove #4)
This is the fourth book in a series but I hadn’t read the first 3 books. I don’t think that was an issue at all. This is a romance with a mystery and some thriller aspects. It’s got more suspense than most general romances that I read. It was a nice change of pace for me. I love the idea of a writer who lives on his own island and his friendship (and more) with an up and coming actress. JT and Emma were a highlight of this one - their personalities are a perfect contrast for each other. All in a ...more

Although suspenseful at times, the slow burn was a bit too slow for my taste. I believe there are readers who'll really enjoy this novel, but at 50% in I was still struggling to care about the characters or the answers I wanted in the beginning. It didn't get much better for me. I wasn't exactly bored but I wasn't invested in the storyline or characters' lives as I like to be.

Thanks NetGalley for an advanced review copy.

Emotionally thrilling, sweetly sexy, action packed, intriguing romantic journey that is the perfect blend of mystery, passion and suspense.

JT and Emma are the perfect match in every way. He is charming, sexy and very much the quiet broody type, she is sweet, sexy and visiting JT's island a year after he invited her. Highly entertaining and emotionally engaging story about love and family, loved every unexpected twist and turn. I have adored JT from the beginning of the series and was very happy

This book started like 4 stars for me, but when i finished it, i think, i give it only 2,75 stars...
And all stars goes to JT, the Hero!
The heroine was weak, she didnt fight back, she put with everything someone told her to do, to be fake-engaged for 1 year to a cheater... The same cheater who almost raped her, and she didnt punt any charges, is she for real???!!!
With every week new sex-scandal on Hollywood...
There was some suspense, but i think author didnt know how to tight the knot. Its not so

This is the fourth book in the Silver Cover series, if you have not read the others yet don't worry, they each can stand alone. But you definitely should check the rest out.

Hidden Charm is JT's story. JT is a horror/sci-fi writer and Emma is an actress in a movie being made from his book. This book is well written with just the right amount of suspense, mystery, and romance. The characters are well developed and you can't help but fall in love with them.

This is my second Silver Cove story that I've read. I loved this story. JT and Emma are great together. It has a perfect mix of romance, suspense and mystery to keep you guessing and turning the pages. This story has so many twists and turns that I didn't see happening. It is so well written that I felt like I was living in this town. I loved JT's interaction with his family. I hope to see more books about this family. It answered a lot of questions as to who killed Lori, which I didn't see comi ...more

I have been waiting for JT's story. I was not disappointed. I think this story is my favorite in the series. How could you not fall in love with JT? He lives a quiet life, but when Emma shows up, he realizes that he was a bit lonely on the island all alone. JT knew that Emma was the perfect person to play the lead in the movie adaptation of his book. He tells her that if she ever needs to get away, she can come to his island in Maine. When she shows up a year later, he is surprised, but happy. S ...more

I was easily swept up in the romance and mystery of Hidden Charm, even though I have not yet read the earlier books. While I don’t recommend jumping into the fourth book of a series, I wasn’t lost at all and found what I needed to know easily within this story. Yet, now I have to go back and start from the beginning because I have questions that only the entire story will tell me… but that’s my personal reading quirk.

JT and Emma’s story is full of so many emotions –

Once again, Jill Sanders has done a remarkable job.

JT Whistler, is an author and someone who likes to spend his time on his island writing. His sister, nephew, nephew and soon-to-be brother-in-law live on the mainland. One of his books has been chosen to be made into a movie. JT has been involved with picking out the cast. He hasn't been able to get Emma Wilder out of his mind since choosing her to be the female lead.

Emma Wilder, an up and coming actress, has been in a few other movies, but th

Emma is ridiculous. She is talented up and coming actress who has no problem playing the "poor me" and "my agent wants me to..." rather than taking any personal responsibility.
She allows herself to stay with a man who hit her, cares more about her career than anyone and used JT shamelessly. And he fell for it every time. Seriously, that she got all cranky about him talking to another woman pushed me over the edge. And lets not ingore that while in a limo with Mark while he was trying to rape h

Part 4 of the Silver Cove series is JT and Emma's story and every bit as good as I hoped it would be.

JT is Kayla's older brother who came across quite a loner in the previous books. He lives on his own private island, just off Silver Cove and locks himself away to write. He is one of the local ferry drivers between the mainland and the holiday resort island ran by his friend Sarah and her husband. This story begins when one of his novels is being turned into a movie, and he meets Emma who he ch

I live in that part of the world, where island living and private island living is not a luxury, and I know exactly how JT feels about big city living. It is not for me..This novel was slow in its pacing, narrative and character development. I still not convinced that Emma's character has been totally transformed. I couldn't understand why Emma's character, would walkaway from a solid, loving relationship in pursuit of a career that in her own words was unfulfilling. The tension and resolution o ...more

This author just keep getting better and better! The characters have depth and relatability that enhances the plot. The plots get more detailed and just when you think you have it all figured out a new twist arises to make it even more exciting. The multi-layered plots keep the story tantalizing and page turning. While you absolutely could pick up this book and read it as a stand alone story, you really don't want to miss out on the series. I'd recommend starting with the first book and reading ...more

This was a sweet romance with a bit of suspense thrown in. Even though this was the fourth book in the series I was not lost with the story. Although I will be picking up the rest of them. JT and Emma are very laid back although both are in the spotlight at time. Mainly Emma because she is the star of JT's book made to movie production. Just enough drama was added that it wasn't over the top. One sitting read. Great for a summer reading list. I received an ebook at no charge for which I voluntar ...more

This story is such a mixture of the good stuff I like in a romance. It’s sweet, yet sexy with enough suspense and mystery to make the plot exciting. I love how I feel like I know the people in Silver Cove; it is such a testament to Jill’s writing. The characters are wonderful, relatable and so well developed it makes it easy to feel that way about them. I love Emma and JT together and he is just so swoonably delicious. I have been waiting for JT’s story and it was worth the wait!!

I have truly enjoyed the ability Jill has of making you feel as if you can truly see the town as she is describing it. She makes you feel as if you actually know the characters and belong in Silver Cove!
I read this book in a day! If that doesn't tell you how good it was, I don't know what will .... couldn't put it down and have started Book 5 in the series! This is the 3rd series I am reading by Jill and I have loved every book!

What a wonderful story! Instantaneous attraction, sexy Alpha writer, sweet sexy actress, a family torn apart, secrets, & danger. This plot grew in intensity until the final scene. The interactions between the characters added depth & emotion to the plot. This was another great emotional story from a terrific writer!

Hidden Charm is so much more than a romance. There is suspense, mystery, animals, relationships, family, movie business behind the scenes, and a surprising ending. Engaging story. I would have been happier without the intimate details, but they were easily overlooked to continue with the tale. The publisher provided a copy via NetGalley.

This is the best book Jill has written. Hidden Charm has so much suspense and intrigue. I had a hard time putting it down for work. It kept me on the edge of my seat wondering who was doing it. Emma and TJ are the perfect couple. Fantastic job, Jill. Keep it up.
