The action continues in book two of the Beauty in Flight series. Harper Cloud shows so much strength and heart through her actions. I especially loved how the novel demonstrates how God loves us even when we don't realize it and can bring good from a bad decision. There has been a focus on caring for the elderly thus far in the series. The meeting space for senior citizens was a nice touch.

My gratitude to the author for a complimentary NetGalley copy of the novel. I was not required to post a re

-‘He watched her, his eyes pleading, begging. For what, she wished she didn’t know. But she did know what he wanted, and she knew exactly what it would cost to give it to him. “I’m sorry.” He turned, walked toward the front door. She didn’t move, couldn’t bring herself to watch him leave.’-

This story dives right in from where the previous story left off. If you didn’t read the first one, you need to read it before this one because these stories are not standalone, they are definitely a series an

Beauty in Hiding
Beauty in Flight #2
By Robin Patchen

Harper Cloud finds herself running. The dead bodies that were in Red's living room and the tampering with his Gatorade have convinced her that they both need to disappear. And they need to go somewhere unexpected where Red's grandson Derrick won't find them.

Nutfield, New Hampshire seems about as unexpected and off the beaten path that Harper can find. Now she needs to be sure they stay off the grid so that whoever is looking for them will find n

I had not heard of this author previously but her new series of books sounded very interesting to me, so when I saw a book tour with Just Reads, I signed up for all three books. 

Beauty in Hiding is the second book in author Robin Patchen’s new series, Beauty in Flight. Today's book releases on March 12, and the third book in the series, Beauty in Battle comes out on April 9, 2019.

Here's your "heads up" warning on this book:  This story jumps in right where book 1 left off.  I personally don't f

Beauty in Hiding by Robin Patchen is the second in the Beauty in Flight trilogy. I’ve read other books by this author and thoroughly enjoyed them. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this series as the blurb didn’t capture my attention as much as her previous books. However, I have to say I LOVE this series. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to relate to Harper because of her beauty, her past, her lifestyle but she was so relatable. I kept forgetting how beautiful she was until the male characte ...more

Lots of action, suspense and romance in this second book in the series. As soon as Harper and Red arrive in Nutfield we are introduced to Jack. Jack is Harper's handsome, kind next door neighbor, landlord. Jack is awesome the way that he helps Harper and Red , but there is no way Harper is going to trust a man again. I loved all the interaction between these three characters, they are characters you can't help but develop feelings for. You can't help but wonder what the story is behind Vanessa. ...more

Loneliness, and the need to connect. Loneliness, and the fear of connecting. Both of these phrases go to the heart of Beauty in Hiding. Both of these phrases are true of so many in our society, so many we see but often don't notice.

Jack Rossi is living what he refers to as a solitary life in Nutville in spite of his many interactions with those at the community pantry and rec center. His new tenants, Harper Cloud and Red Burns, could not escape his notice. Harper was gorgeous, but obviously h

Harper Cloud – an interesting name and a bit unusual. Somehow, it seems to me she would have assumed a different name somewhere along the way to try to make it more difficult to be traced, but I suppose she had too many other things to consider when she loaded Gramps in the car and ran from his home. Often in a book series, keeping track of what happened earlier in the series is difficult because of the time lapse between releases. With the speed at which each book is being released and the way ...more

Just when Harper has settled in well at Derrick’s grandfather’s home in Maryland and she and the old man are becoming quite close, the author kicks the story up a notch and sends them on the run after the particularly disturbing events of one evening. It is evident that someone is out to get Harper or at least point the finger at her for murder and she can think of nothing but protecting Red. Derrick is beginning to show his true colors and Harper does not trust him – even with his own grandfath ...more

What a fantastic ride! This is the 2nd book in the Beauty in Flight series. While this one would probably make sense as a stand-alone, you really should read the first book in order to get the history before reading this one. This book starts where the first one left off. Harper has taken Red and fled for their lives. She ends up in Nutfield, NH (fans of the author's Hidden Truths series will find that town to be familiar - and some familiar faces show up as well!) in order to go into hiding and ...more

This time around for the second installment in this series by Robin Patchen, Beauty in Hiding flowed more like a suspense novel. Harper was looking over her shoulder, and Derrick was digging himself deeper and deeper into trouble. The tension was hiked up more and had me flipping through the pages quickly, wanting to see how the story would end. The romance between Harper and Jake kept growing as the story progressed. One of my favorite aspects of the entire series is that Patchen is NO

Things aren’t right with Derrick, her ex boyfriend and just as she suspects he’s trying to poison his grandfather, she finds two dead bodies in the house.

I was given an ARC of Beauty in Hiding and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of reading it. I started with Beauty in Flight (book 1) and got pulled into the story so when it left on a cliff hanger I just knew that book 2 would be on my to read list, Robin came through pretty quickly with the link to download.

A great second book in the series!

Harper and Red, on the run after the murders in Maryland (Book #1), find a house to rent in Nutfield, NH. Their new landlord, Jack Rossi, is a caring man but curious that there seems more to his new tenants than meets the eye. He is drawn to them, but Harper’s recent experiences have made trusting men even less likely. Derrick, Harper’s ex-boyfriend and Red’s grandson, is desperate to find them for his own future well-being, not theirs.

There is a lot of action

This was a great second book in the Beauty trilogy. I once again was drawn back into Harper's story as she is doing what she thinks is best and keeping her charge, Red, safe. I love how she shows that she has turned from her past, yet she continues to have difficulty trusting men. Jack was a man of integrity that looks out for his new tenants. I loved seeing his compassion for Harper and Red. Harper is on the run from her ex, who happens to be Red's grandson. Seeing what is going on in his life ...more

This entire series is amazing! (This is book 2, and you're going to want to read these in order) I have been completely captivated and it's been really hard for me to put the book down. In this book, as Harper moves to this new town and tries to keep Red safe, you can see her grow spiritually, she seems to trust God more and in turn starts trusting others a little more. Will she be able to keep Red safe from Derrick? Will she be wrongfully accused for what happens in Maryland because of her past ...more

An excellent installment in the series! I finished book 1 very quickly, and did the same here—because I just had to find out what would happen next.

This book ended on a cliffhanger, also like book 1, so be prepared to rush out and get book 3 if you haven’t already.

My grandfather had Alzheimer’s, and watching Red with dementia brought back quite a few memories. I felt the author really represented well the struggles the patient and those around them have to go through.

The second book in the Beauty in Flight series, this continues the story of Harper as she tries to protect Red while in hiding. Harper must figure out who the enemy is while keeping them safe, knowing that Derrick is frantically searching for them. The drama continues and the suspense grows as they make a life in Nutfield, while trying to stay under the radar.

This book is the second in the series, which is to conclude with Beauty in Battle. As such, it ends in a cliff hanger.

I received an ARC copy of this book and this is my review. I enjoyed this book very much. Looking forward to the next book. This book has mystery, suspense, new friends, and prayers. Harper just can not get a break. After getting to Nutfield things calm for a bit. Then a couple things happen around the same time. Red has an attempt made on his life and Harper has to go in and be questioned by the police. I hope the Nutfield, N. H. series continues to grow.

The second in the Series. Another a amazing story about the beautiful and troubled Harper. This time, she has gone into hiding with her patient, Red Burns and is doing her best to keep both of tem safe. It is tense, gripping and a another must read. I was so gripped that I had to read Book 3 - Beauty In Battle straight away. Book 3 did not disappoint and was a great ending to a fabulous series. If you haven't read Books one to three then I can honestly recommend them.

Robin Patchen has written a wonderful book! This book has everything a reader wants in a novel. It has romance, suspense and adventure; all combined with the undying love of Christ and faith in him. It is combined in a way that keeps the readers intrigued from start to finish. It will keep you up at night to finish because you can't out it down.
I have recommend it to all my friends and family. It is a great series and I cannot wait to read her next book!

Superior writing. Robin Patchen doesn't dumb down her books--she has an excellent vocabulary and isn't afraid to use it, but those well-placed words won't keep readers from enjoying the fast pace and incredible tension. (Or discerning the meaning of those words they won't take the time to look up.)

This story is about hope that former mistakes lead to something better engineered by the LORD. I think it's His favorite kind of story, as He brings ex-losers out of hiding and into the light.

Beauty In Hiding by Robin Patchen follows Beauty In Flight. Harper has difficulty trusting. Especially men. And with good cause. The ones she’s trusted have brought her nothing but trouble. The last man she trusted may even cost her her life.
It’s difficult to take me by surprise. But Robin repeatedly brings into her plots surprises I did not see coming. Keeping me on my toes and making the story line exciting.

Robin Patchen is astounding. This book is intense, complicated, it keeps you up at night reading because you can't put it down. There are so many twists and turns that you need to re-read some sentences to make sure you understand what's happening. You need to read this series. Yes, it is a series, and well worth it. I can't wait for the final book to find out what happens. A great read!

After reading BEAUTY IN FLIGHT, I pre ordered #2, BEAUTY IN HIDING, which is a stand alone book, but I Recommend reading reading # 1 first because it’s so good and you get to know the characters for the other 2 books in this series.Robin Patchen is my favorite Christian author.
I eagerly await #3 , which I also pre ordered.
I hope she is working on another series !!

Plenty of Suspense

This series continues as Harper leaves Maryland with Red.
I loved the storyline with plenty of suspense,twists and turns with interesting characters.
This book should be read as part of a series to better understand the characters.
This book is recommended for those who love Christian suspense with an inspirational message.
