In the past few years, Michelle Albert has proven over and over that she can deliver fun and emotionally intense romantic suspense that keeps reader on the edge of their seats. In her latest offering, HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT, she doesn’t miss a beat in giving reader that same fast paced action and romance that they expect in her books. HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT will keep you turning pages just to find out how it ends.
Antique bookstore owner Fiona Kennedy is ready to break out of her shell. After waiting for five years for her husband to be declared “officially” dead, she is ready to head off to the Bahamas and cut loose. Her plans change when Griff Laughton arrives asking her to authenticate and appraise an old manuscript. She is quickly learns that her skills and knowledge are needed by more people than just Griff. Fiona is pulled into a race for her life.
Griff Laughton has spent the better part of 15 years doing everything and anything to defeat art and antiquities smuggling rings around the globe. To him Fiona Kennedy cannot be anything more than his next case. He thrives on danger and his assignment is to protect Fiona and have her appraise the manuscript. He will stay emotionally detached and do anything and everything he needs to keep her safe. He plans for this case to be routine--but when bullets start flying he knows that this case will be anything but routine because he has never cared so much.

Ms. Albert has written a fun, fast paced novel with characters that jump off the page. The relationship that forms between Fiona and Griff is fresh and fiery. The suspense elements are well written and readers move from one event to the next with rapid speed. Readers of Ms. Albert’s books will not be disappointed and new readers will find a new favorite.
