    " I always enjoy Karen Harper's books. This one especially was filled with twists and turns. Romantic suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty Throop | 2/12/2014

    " I got this book completely by accident, meaning to read The Hiding Place by Carrie Ten Boom, BUT...this was a pretty good read. It had me pretty much hooked from the get go. A real life story about a tragedy that took place in this women's life. Great read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 2/8/2014

    " This book was okay. The plot was easy to figure out throughout the story. The romance between Nick and Tara would have been great if the author had shown more of that side. Overall, I would probably not read another of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 1/27/2014

    " I liked the book, however, some of the dialog was a bit contrived. Nick and Tara did not jump into bed together right away but like alot of romantic suspense novels it departs from reality. But I suppose that's why we read them, to escape reality for a little while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 1/6/2014

    " Never read her before, really enjoyed the book and will pick up some of her others. Some of it was predictable but I liked the characters and the location of Colorado really brought back some memories. I have hiked in the very location the book was set so that was really fun. We'll see how some of her others are. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirinda | 12/31/2013

    " I like Karen Harper, but this book was more sad than suspenseful. Still, it is worth a read if it is available to you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherie Reeves | 10/30/2013

    " predictable book with predictable ending. Not a bad read just not outstanding. Girl is in coma, husband leaves her for her friend, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 10/9/2013

    " Good, but somewhat predictable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet Meissner | 9/21/2013

    " A good escape from Hurricane Sandy! Harper writes about beautiful people who have heroic passions and perform athletic feats to save their loved ones. Guiltily satisfying. "

    " i meant to get the "Hiding place" by Corrie Ten Boom from the library, but accidently put this book on hold. I read the back of the book and decided that I wanted to read it. I liked how there was mystery, action, romance with out sex, gore, and bad language. "

    " Really good, keeps you reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 8/12/2012

    " Written well, easy to follow, not surprised at the ending. Was very engaged through most of it. While there was quite the excitement and adventure at the end of the book I still felt it took too long to wrap it up. This was my first read by Karen Harper. I will read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 7/5/2012

    " For some reason this book reminded me of a mix of the lucky one and black and blue. It was a good story, very suspenseful and alot of action. The romance portions are not overly descriptive which is something that i appreciate. It reads more like a suspense than a romance in my opinion. "

    " Horribly predictible. "

    " Very interesting book, however you could see what was coming half way through the book, just not how and what did happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenajo | 1/24/2012
