Lovereading view...

Overflowing with suspense, this is a dramatic and gripping family tale. Justine attempts to start a brand new life in the USA and bury all evidence of her old one in England, however fate isn't prepared to hold her hand. The story varies between the present and the past, eighteen years previously gradually moves forward in time to meet the present day. Susan Lewis knows exactly how to march the tension levels to an almost unbearable level, she also knows exactly when to release them in order to run riot across the page. ‘No Place to Hide’ effectively presents a family like any other and then proves that nightmare scenarios can ignore boundaries, rampage through respectability and tear apart happiness. Steeped in heartache, torment and grief, there is an undeniable tenderness and consideration that sits alongside these difficult emotions, making this a wonderfully compelling read. ~ Liz Robinson

  • Sharon Butler - 'As an already huge fan of Susan Lewis, I wasn't surprised to find that I loved this book. The sensitive subject matter is very well tackled and at times brought me to tears. HIGHLY recommended.'
  • Judith Waring - 'I read the synopsis on the back before I got stuck in and thought I had the answer worked out already...silly me!! I devoured this book within four days of receiving it.'
  • Ann Quintilla - 'A page-turning story about bullying, deceit and fractured relationships.'
  • Marie Fitzgerald - 'I defy anyone to read this book slowly or without crying. What a privilege to read such an emotive story.'
  • Sarah Harper - 'The story of a perfect family torn apart. Slow at first, it gains momentum towards a shocking conclusion.'
  • Ceri Forster - 'Well constructed, realistic and easy to get lost in.Fans of Nora Roberts and Jodi Picoult will not be disappointed.'
  • Jane Ashbrook - 'Always readable but a little disappointing.'
  • Liz stein - 'A gripping but sad read, with believable characters in real life situations, which was hard to put down.'
  • Amanda Gray - 'Relatable, engaging and addictive, Lewis created something special in this novel that not only helped me understand teens as a parent but also understand more about the characters inside.'
  • Jacqueline Harper - 'This is no light-weight summer read. Brilliantly written, Susan Lewis highlights the dangers our teenagers can face inside their own rooms & how easy it can be to miss the signs.'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'A family broken largely by the single, significant act of a Father, Husband, Business Partner, Father-in-Law and Friend – superbly engaging relationship plot.'
  • Lisa Hall - 'This was an excellent read, and one that tugged at my heartstrings completely.'
  • Pam Kennedy - 'I do not normally like this sort of book - one partner leaves home and, after trials and tribulations, the other partner finds someone else or the partner returns. I did however enjoy this book.'
  • Cathy Burman - 'A real page turner, a compelling, tear jerking, spellbinding storyline, which will have your emotions jumping all over the place. I loved this book.'
  • Rebecca Whymark - 'Storytelling at its best. Well done Susan on another excellent novel. Great for holiday reading! Can't wait for her next one!'
  • Beth Winsor - 'Good ideas, poor execution.'
