I’ve been a reader since I was a child and I’ve been a dedicated romance junkie since freshman year of high school; but I only started writing reviews a few years ago. So, this year I’ll be running a series called HEA Flashback where I talk about romance books I read prior to the blog. I’ll be doing a flashback every first Tuesday of the month, so check back to find out what books still hold a special place in my heart.
Terror has forever changed the life of psychiatrist Tess Ciccotelli. Someone is tormenting her patients, pushing them to commit suicide, and setting her up to take the blame. But Tess can’t break her oath to protect her patients’ privacy at all costs. Even when detective Aidan Reagan demands a list of everyone she’s treating. Even when the mounting danger threatens Tess herself.Aidan doesn’t like anyone who stalls his cases. Still, he can’t help but admire Tess’s fierce loyalty to her patients, especially when it becomes clear that a nameless, facelss enemy is set on destroying her career, her family , and finally, Tess herself. As Aidan’s heart softens, the killer’s will hardens, and one thing becomes clear – the noose is tightening around Tess’s neck.

What I Love
My experience with You Can’t Hide is actually an interesting story. I first read this book in my early days of romance but years later in college I couldn’t remember the title or author and only a few scant details about the book. I wanted to reread it and spent hours searching online and posting to forums that help you find books you can’t remember. But I had no luck. Then one day I found another book by Karen Rose and while I’m looking through the book descriptions for the series I realize, THIS IS THE BOOK! I was beyond excited and when I read it a second time I loved it!
There’s a great mystery and tons of suspense to pull the reader along as well as a great love story between police officer, Aidan, and psychiatrist, Tess. What really creates the tension is that Tess has essentially been shunned from the police department because of her testimony on a case. Aidan wants to dislike her from the very beginning but he also can’t help his attraction to her in addition to admiring her ethics and devotion to her patients. These two have a lot of obstacles to overcome and I loved the journey.
Have you ever found a book years later after you forgot it?
