Synopsis:
Review:

Thank you to NetGalley, Bold Strokes Books and Renee Roman for an ARC ebook copy to review. As always, an honest review from me.

Like:
– the main characters: smart, intriguing, want to be friends with them (and yes, I know it’s a romance novel but to me the mark of a great romance novel and really any book is well written characters)
– Some sexy times but it doesn’t overshadow the rest of the storylines

Love:
– chronic pain (migraines) is shown realistically – as part of life, annoying, frustrating, doesn’t make you weak but also does truly impact your life
– The investigative mystery storyline of Cam trying to find Sarah’s family. An intense captivating story that allows for other storylines to authentically come into play.
– The personalities of both main characters (and love interests) Cam and Sarah. They’re super interesting to read about.

Wish that:
– Sarah’s biological dad was featured more. He seemed like a great guy that could add a lot to the book.

Dislike:
– the flirting with older women at the beginning. Am I missing something? I don’t really get it.
– The story wrapped up a bit too quickly. Another 20 pages would have allowed the final details to be explored more

Overall, a really great novel. Well written incredible characters, an interesting investigation storyline and the perfect amount of sexy times. I highly recommend giving Where the Lies Hide a read.
