The book started out a little abruptly. I felt I was dropped into the middle of a story. In a way I was but after a few pages it started making sense to me. I loved the suspense that was all the way through the book. The interaction between Gage and Cara is interesting as well. Gage is bitter and has withdrawn from the world because of his injury. Cara doesnt let him wallow in self pity. The ending was pretty much a given from the very beginning. But I enjoyed reading the story to get to the end. I have never read any books by Wendy Davis. I can honestly say I will be looking for other books by this author.
I was given this book to read by the Pelican Group to read in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
lcjohnson1988IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5November 8, 2013lcjohnson1988IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This particular suspense thriller is set in contemporary East Coast United States and the country of Columbia. The two main characters are DEA agent Gage McKenna and librarian Cara Dalton.
Cara Dalton just wanted to surprise her brother by showing up in Columbia to help with his mission trip. What she got for her trouble was a drug lord wanting her dead. She didn't see the murder, but the drug lord thinks she did. Her brother contacts his partner, Gage, to keep his sister safe while he returns to Columbia to take down the drug lord. Cara wants no part of being stranded on a barrier island with a grumpy guard. She soon discovers her brother was not on a missionary trip, but on a DEA mission. She had no idea what her brother did for a living. Now, she must deal with a drug lord out to kill her, her brother on a dangerous mission to capture him, and her growing feelings for her guard. It's a good thing she knows God has got her future under control.
Gage McKenna is on medical leave after suffering a debilitating injury at the hands of a torturous drug lord, the same one chasing Cara. He likes his life the way it is_secluded and alone. Cara disrupts his life, but she also brings him back to the land of the living by opening his heart up to let her in. Gage will do anything to keep her safe, but how can he when his leg hinders his efforts? How can God let this happen when all Gage ever wanted to do was help people? Does God even care about him? While Gage has to keep constant watch for the drug lord to keep Cara safe, he also must wrestle with his new found feelings for her and his anger at God.
I thought this was a really good story, but it was too short. Due to the brevity, the characters really didn't have time to develop and engage readers. The plot was good and the story flowed well. There was plenty of action, and a romance as well. The story could have been so much more satisfying if it were longer. It seemed everything happened too quickly, and the romance between the two main characters seemed unrealistic in its' depth to the shortness of their acquaintance. I did like how Cara was not afraid to share her faith. I would enjoy reading a full length novel by this author.

It was a "what is going to happen, next?" suspense. It was a great thriller that had you wanting to know more towards the end of the story. A story of a young lady named Cara who happens to be in the vicinity when a crime was committed that she did not witness. A drug smuggler who is willing to stop at nothing to silence Cara. An undercover agent, Gage McKenna helps to keep Cara safe. A story of trust and faith. I received this book from The Book Club Network for an honest review. I recommend this book! It was a great story...can't wait to the next book.
ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5SuspensefulOctober 9, 2013ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5You Can't Hide is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you quickly turning the pages. This is only the first of Ms. Davy's books that I've read but it certainly won't be the last. Within this book there are many smaller lessons including how God can turn even the worst circumstances into victory, overcoming self-pity when God doesn't answer prayers the way we would hope, facing fears, and resting in the protection that only God can provide. I enjoyed the way the characters prayed simple, yet honest prayers and how convincing the storyline was from beginning to end. This action packed story kept my interest throughout and did not disappoint.
I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
