Hide Away by Iris Johansen

Book Description

Iris Johansen's beloved forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is back and now the stakes are higher than ever. Dramatic changes are on the horizon for Eve and Joe Quinn and their relationship may never be the same. Faced with the task of protecting Cara Delaney, a young girl with ruthless enemies who want to see her dead, Eve takes her away to the remote Scottish Highlands where they join Jane MacGuire in search of a hidden treasure. But nowhere is far enough away to protect Cara from danger. With enemies closing in from all sides, Hide Away is a high-octane thriller that fans will not want to miss.

AVAILABLE: April 26, 2016

Hide Away is the 20th novel in Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan series.  And to be completely honest, this review is kinda hard for me to write.  I have read EVERY Eve Duncan book and (lately) I have found them to be repetitive, predictable, and just... kind of annoying.  And by annoying, I mean I am getting really annoyed with Eve as more "time" goes by.  I find her becoming more and more selfish and self-destructive as each book passes.  I don't think that she gives ANY regard for her family.  Eve just does what she wants and expects Joe and Jane to drop everything and protect her.  

Will I continue to read Eve Duncan books...?? Yes, bbbbuuutttttt only because I've invested in the previous 20 books.  But I WISH Ms. Johansen would switch her focus on another character (a.k.a Jane!!).  

RATING: 2 out of 5

**I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.**
