Book Review, “Hiding Places,” Erin Healy author

Hiding Places coverHiding Places, by Erin Healy, is difficult to put down. It is a fascinating suspense novel, taking several seemingly unrelated characters and twisting their stories together into one.

Kate, an eleven-year-old girl, lives at the Harrison Lodge, a hotel near Denver, Colorado. It had belonged to her family for generations, and she had discovered many hidden corridors and closets while trying to stay out of everyone’s way over the years. She also kept many secrets about her family, such as sneaking candy bars to her grandfather, one sister’s habit of stealing money from the petty cash and the other’s marijuana, removing the negative cards from the comment box, and her great-grandmother’s secret door in her closet. But when the lives of others from nearby lead them to the Lodge, a dangerous situation results in the lives of Charlie, the Fox, and many others.

This book kept my attention throughout its entirety, revealing more information about each character as the plot thickened. I loved Kate. Her young innocence and love for others was inspiring. I particularly enjoyed how the family in this novel learned to love each other through their experiences.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoy Christian suspense novels.


I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
