About the book:

A cold case is suddenly too hot to handle in the second installment of the Winchester Brothers romantic suspense series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Leslie A. Kelly.

Police officer Rowan Winchester wants nothing to do with his celebrity family's legacy. Working with the LAPD is his way of atoning for the Winchesters' dark and secretive past. And, right now, the last thing Rowan needs is true-crime novelist Evie Fleming nosing around the most notorious deaths in Los Angeles -- including the ones that haunt his own family. To make things worse, he's torn between wanting the wickedly smart writer out of his city . . . and just plain wanting her.

While researching her latest book, Evie suspects that a dangerous new killer is prowling the City of Angels. Now she just has to convince the devastatingly handsome cop that she's right. Soon Evie and Rowan are working together to try to find the killer, even as their attraction ignites. But when the killer hones in on Evie, she and Rowan realize they'll have to solve this case fast if they want to stay alive.

My Thoughts:
Nowhere to Hide starts off with a bang sucking me into the story right away. There’s a lot of danger, and suspense wondering if Evie will be safe and not knowing exactly who is behind the sinister threat hanging over her. I really liked Evie, and her inquisitive spirit. I will say some of her actions in the end bordered on TSTL, and resulted in a tragedy, but technically it wasn’t her decision in the moment so I can’t really say it was all her. Still, it was a bit annoying.

The romance was a slow burn, and even though both were attracted at first meet there were some obstacles to overcome before either would give into their desire. Rowan was hesitant because he didn’t fully trust, at first, Evie’s intentions. Was worried if he let her in, she’d betray the family’s secrets, but I liked how it all turned out.

Nowhere to Hide was a nice blend of action, mystery, danger, and romance. There was a mystery that wraps up in this installment, but there’s also a mystery arc started in the first book involving the Winchester’s sister, their agent and the brothers that isn’t yet solved.  I didn’t read the first book and I didn’t feel too left out of the loop. I’m eager to see how it all turns out in the next book.

  2. The name Winchester just makes me think of Supernatural. LOL I'm glad you enjoyed this one overall, and that you didn't NEED to read the first book to understand this one.


  3. Neat how it pulled you into the story even if it was not the first one. Sounds like a good romance pair though I'm glad she didn't go too far with the stupid.

  4. Another author I need to try! :)

  5. I really like the sound of this one. I have yet to read this author but it sounds like a good book.

  6. I’d not heard of this series but it does sound really good!

  7. The TSTL moments can be so annoying but I guess it's not so bad when it's not all on the MC. This sounds like it has a good mix of romance, suspense and action. And it's a bonus that you didn't feel lost for not having read the first book.

  8. I love all the elements this story has. Sounds great.
