Life has been complicated for Sydney Ross. Desperate for a new start, she leaves home but, during her travels, witnesses something that will forever alter the path of her life. On the run for the last six years, Sydney finds herself living the life of a nomad until she one day stumbles into a small town and hopes she's finally found a place to put down roots. With a good job in a local diner and, for the first time ever, friends who feel like family, things start looking up for Sydney. The biggest shock of all is catching the eye of the town’s most eligible bachelor, the sexy sheriff, Wade Jenkins.

Sparks fly between them, and it's not long before Sydney believes Elton, Missouri could be the home she's always wished for. But Sydney's past and her secrets have a way of catching up with her. When a brutal murder shakes the small town, Sydney is terrified that the countdown has begun on her time in Elton.

Have the shadows from her past found her again? The people who mean the most want her to stay, but that would put everyone, including her daughter, at risk. Can Sydney put her faith in Wade or will she keep running from a danger that even she doesn't fully understand?


My Review

The past is never too far behind... 

She is literally running for her life and the life of her daughter.  This has been her life for the last six years since that eventful night.  The night when, lost in the cornfields in Montana, a woman drenched in blood asked her to watch and protect her newborn baby.

After staying on the move all this time, Sydney has now settled in this small town.  Her life is as close to normal as is possible for her.  With hopes that she will be able to stay and not have to continue moving from town to town, Sydney makes friends with the town's folks.  One inhabitant in particular she is drawn to is the sexy sheriff - Wade.  The man just has the most powerful impact on her anytime he is in the same room.  The chemistry between these two can be seen by all - like sparks and fireworks in the night.

Finally falling in love with Wade, Sydney risks everything in order to stay in town with Wade.  She must overcome her fears, as she receives death threats and her daughter's life is in peril.

This story had me spellbound and biting my nails.  The plot line is unrelenting with foreboding that builds to a crescendo when all is revealed and blood will be shed.  I have always enjoyed a good mystery/suspense.  This book had me at the edge of my seat until the last words in the Epilogue.  This is described as the first book in the Hidden Series.  I can hardly wait to read the next installment in this series and what plot twists Victoria Michaels has in store for us next.
