Nowhere To Hide by Louise Lyndon ❤️ Review Tour & Gift Card Giveaway ❤️ (Erotic Romantic Suspense)



Forty years ago the Australian rural town of Burrawang Bend was the scene of a brutal murder, and the townspeople are still calling for justice. Marlee Moore, the suspect’s and victim’s granddaughter, is fighting to clear her grandfather’s name. And no one is going to stand in her way. But when things take a dangerous and deadly turn, Marlee must turn to the one man she was determined to run out of town.

Devon Reilly, investigative journalist for his hit TV show, Justice Served, is in Burrawang Bend to solve the forty-year-old cold case murder. But, he didn't bargain on Marlee keeping him from investigating the case and he soon questions where her loyalties lie. With the living? Or with the dead? But when Marlee and her son’s life are put in danger, Devon knows he is the only man who can keep them alive. But what happens when he soon realizes he is the bigger threat to the woman and kid he loves?


This was an AWESOME erotic romantic suspense!

I like to consider myself a reasonably intelligent person. That being said, I NEVER expected the twists in this story! I thought I had the plot all mapped out, but knowing Louise's work like I do, I should have known she would write a gripping story!

In addition to being deliciously suspenseful, this book was also SMOKING HOT. Forced to hunker down and hide until the bad guy surfaced, Marlee and Devon simply could not deny the attraction they felt towards each other.

I enjoyed reading both Maree and Devon's respective transformations throughout the story, especially Devon. He came with one huge issue from his past that he had to come to terms with, and his journey to get there opened all kinds of other doors, especially in the romance department.

One of the intense scenes early on in the book nearly had me in tears. Louise did such a fantastic job writing about the lengths Marlee would go to in order to protect her son, Max.

Aside from some proofreading issues and overuse of certain phrases, this book was positively addictive! I will read ANYTHING Louise writes!!!



He took his time drinking from his bottle of water. He rubbed the back of his hand across his lips and exhaled. “Well, if her death was deemed an accident, then he stood to gain financially. A hundred thousand dollars in the early seventies was a considerable amount of money. And that is called motive.”

“It’s still considered a considerable amount of money. At least by me it is.” When she couldn’t loosen the lid of her water, he reached for it. Her gaze lingered on his. “When you were doing your piece to camera, I heard you say Pops had told people Marion had terminal cancer. Surely this would lead people to infer she might have committed suicide. If that was the case, then the insurance wouldn’t have paid out. There goes your motive, Reilly.”

He slid the opened bottle of water toward her.

“If Marion had cancer, then surely Pops is innocent.”

“It would certainly have the investigation looking in another direction. But, Marlee, there are no doctors or nurses or other health care professionals to support Saul’s claim Marion had terminal cancer. None of Marion’s friends confirmed she had cancer either. Surely, that would have been something she would have confided to her family and friends. It doesn’t make sense she would want to keep that toherself. Especially since she had a kid. She’d want to make preparations for her daughter.” He looked pointedly at her. “Your mother. And then there is the issue of the selective autopsy. If a complete autopsy had been performed, then we would have definitive proof of whether or not she had cancer.”

“Why wouldn’t the coroner examine all of Marion’s organs?”

“That’s the sixty-four-thousand-dollar question. Within a day of the autopsy report being provided, Marion was cremated. An inquest was held, but the coroner could not make a decision as to whether or not Marion was murdered, if she committed suicide or if her death was an accident. Saul and other witnesses refused to give evidence. Hence, the open findings ruling. I’d like to question the coroner but I believe he died a couple of years after Marion.”

    




Louise grew up in rural Victoria, Australia, before moving to England, where for sixteen years she soaked up the vibrancy of London and the medieval history of England. She has since returned to Australia and now lives in Melbourne.
In 2013, Louise won first prize in the historical romance category of the Crested Butte Sandy Writing Contest for her story, The Promise, which has since been retitled and is now known as, Of Love & Vengeance. Her second novel, Of Love & Betrayal is available now.
When not writing, Louise can be found covered in mud, crawling under barbed wire and hoisting herself over twelve foot walls! She is also a self confessed nail polish addict and you can check out her nail art designs on her Instagram account.


I'm a self confessed shopaholic, but hate shopping in brick and mortar stores. Bring on internet shopping.

I've met Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect.

Growing up, I wanted to be a songwriter.

I have three sisters, five nieces, one nephew and one great-niece.

I can play the guitar, piano and drums - badly!

My favorite TV shows are; Outlander, Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, and Game Of Thrones.

I often wonder how I'd cope in a zombie invasion.

The most 'famous' person I have met is Stephen Hawking. I said 'hi, hello' to him in the parking lot of a university I once worked at.

My favorite 'Dr' (as in Dr Who) is Christopher Eccleston.

I met the most popular 'Dr' David Tennant at the National Television Awards in London, the same night he announced he would be giving up his role as the Dr.

My favorite saying is - 'Everything has it's beauty, but not everyone sees it...' my other favorite is - 'Bang on enough doors and one is bound to open...'

I have a deep rooted fear of flying.

I openly admit to being obsessed with Facebook.

My favorite fictional character is none other than, Jamie Fraser, from the Outlander novels by Diana Gabaldon.

If I could, I would eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

From grade prep to grade four, I attended a primary school which only had fourteen students in its entirety and only one teacher.
