What We Hide is the fantastic start to a new romantic suspense series! Colleen Coble’s teamed up with Rick Acker to create a memorable legal mystery thriller with a lawyer who’s trying to save his marriage while defending his wife against murder charges. There’s also a smuggling ring selling artifacts from Tupelo Grove University where his wife works. Will Hez be able to solve the mystery & exonerate his wife?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Hez Webster’s a charming, sympathetic lawyer who’s a recovering alcoholic. He blames himself for his young daughter’s death & has been separated from his wife for a while. Now clean & sober, he wants a second chance.

Savannah’s a history professor now teaching at the university her family founded & hoping for tenure. Separated from her husband after the death of their daughter, she’s finally seeking a divorce. When Hez shows up out of the blue wanting a second chance, she immediately balks. But when she discovers a dead body & becomes the prime suspect, she needs Hez’s help to clear her name.

Filled with twists & turns, this story kept me quickly turning the pages. There’s a lot going on with multiple suspects. The artifact smuggling ring and murders are just two pieces of the puzzle. There’s also family drama involving Savannah’s sister. The courtroom drama added an interesting element to the story & I enjoyed the balance between it & the suspense.

I appreciated the tender second chance romance as Hez and Suzanna try to work through their grief. Neither one of them wants a divorce, but is it the best way for both of them to move on? There’s also a thoughtful faith element deftly woven through the story dealing with forgiveness & second chances.

While several things are wrapped up at the end, the mystery continues. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book. Highly recommend to inspirational romantic suspense fans. I received an advanced complimentary copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own and voluntarily provided. 4-4.5 stars

What a wonderful collaborative effort! I have not previously read any of Rick Acker's work, but have enjoyed many of Colleen Coble's over the years. I enjoyed being back in the Pelican Harbor area and Coble's inclusion of some cameo appearances of characters from her Pelican Harbor series. This is the second book that I have read lately that includes portions told from the viewpoint of an unidentified character. It is a tool for building the mystery of who done it as readers try to pair the person's monologue to the traits of known characters, a tool that has its place in the mystery genre, but one I hope does not become over-used. The premise of the mystery, one of embezzlement and smuggling, could easily be pulled from today's headlines. The themes around the struggle to create balance between family and work, and the weight of grief on relationships add depth to the story. The pace of the story is perfect, the authors' ability to evoke emotion stellar, and the character development well-done.

I recommend What We Hide, and am grateful to have received a complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson via NetGalley without obligation. All opinions expressed here are my own.

I LOVED this story. I was unable to put it down until I finished reading. With a gripping start, the quick pace was maintained throughout the book. Several murders took place in the beginning that were later found to be connected but the connections were not revealed until the end.
