Genre: Psychological Thriller
A gripping psychological thriller with chilling twists, from a unique, new voice. Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he's known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.
This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families' paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?

Across the ocean, two worlds collide, each uniquely different from the other; one living in North Carolina, the other in the Scottish Highlands.
There's something to say about a suspenseful psychological thriller that will have you tapping those pages quickly as you eagerly wonder what's next. And in Jenny Morton Pott's HIDING, you will be left wondering as she deftly takes you through the story making sure not to leave too many hints so as to give away the plot.
Rebecca Brown was four years old when she was orphaned along with her siblings, Austen and Collette. Left with nothing but questions about her life and her parents, the siblings are raised by detached grandparents who are as cold as they are standoffish. Left to figure things out on her own, as Rebecca got older, she began researching what happened.
Keller Bayes is smart. Perhaps too smart. His father becomes involved in a series of circumstances that land him the death penalty and Keller placed in the care of an indifferent aunt. Rebecca's and Keller's circumstances might well mirror each other with the exception of the paths they each took.
Both Rebecca's and Keller's lives are told simultaneously and until they actually meet, there was a bit of confusion for me until I got into the swing of the story. It took a few chapters before I was able to immerse myself in the story and if you find yourself following a similar path, keep going. It gets better. Much, much better.
It's difficult for me to go into my likes and dislikes for this story as I'm loath to give anything away and my concern is that I might release some (whispers) spoilers. Suffice to say, if you like a good psychological thriller with all the elements of good storytelling and characterization, then you definitely want to read HIDING.
