Brittany McEuen reviews
Dana Jacobs is a strong and capable supervisor at the Department of Homeland Security in Taos, New Mexico. She has not had an easy life and is reluctant to let anyone get too close.
Benjamin Marshall has finished his stint in the military as an explosives expert and is now assigned to Dana’s team. When threats start rolling in, and it is clear that a man full of anger is orchestrating attacks, Ben knows that he has been brought to Taos to protect Dana.
I really enjoyed reading Hidden. I loved the setting of Taos, NM, as well as the interesting characters in this book. The book takes off immediately with a heart-stopping prologue that gives the reader a peek back into the past. It is a glimpse at the moment Dana Jacob’s life changed forever. This event shaped her view of God, the world, and of relationships. What a complex character Dana is. She tries very hard to be strong, but lacks the one thing in life that could give her true strength.
Ben Marshall carries that true peace and strength in him because of his reliance on God. He is a wonderful hero. He is strong, yet gentle, and has such an innate ability to understand what Dana needs. Sometimes this causes some friction between them, adding to the tension in the book.
The story line is gripping and the action scenes are intense. The suspense builds throughout the story and the villain in the book is definitely scary and always seems one step ahead of the Homeland Defense team.
Hidden is a great addition to the world of romantic suspense! I am looking forward to reading more in the Jacobs Family Series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Vannetta Chapman, in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
