about the book....

The search for her missing brother leads to the most dangerous part of the city . . .

Camrianne Coulter's brother Caleb is a successful San Francisco attorney. But when three months go by without a word from the usually communicative Caleb, Camri boards a train to the booming West Coast city to find out for herself why he hasn't written. When she arrives at his home, nobody seems to know where he is, or what has become of him.

Camri's search for her brother leads her deep into the political corruption of the city--and into the acquaintance of Patrick Murdock, who Caleb successfully defended from a false murder charge. Getting to know this handsome Irish contractor challenges all of Camri's privileged beliefs, but Patrick is unshakably loyal to her brother, and he seems to know more about what happened to Caleb than anyone else. As the two edge closer to the truth behind Caleb's disappearance, they risk angering the powerful forces that control the city. Can Camri trust Patrick to protect her from the dangers that lie hidden in San Francisco's backstreets?

my review....

San Francisco in 1905 comes to vibrant life under Tracie Peterson's pen with her latest novel "In Places Hidden", transporting readers back in time with a story that is sure to appeal to Peterson's broad fan base. Camrianne is a strong female lead who, while she does have some growing to do, has plenty of courage and tenacity to offer. I quite enjoyed accompanying her on her search for her missing brother, as she and Patrick's friend discover a deeper level of corruption in the city than they'd even suspected. Camri isn't a perfect character, and that's what I liked most about her as readers will be able to relate to her struggle with pride, a pride that accompanies so many of her well-intentioned actions (not to mention advice). Her growth over the course of the story is admirable to behold, and her sweet relationship she forms with Patrick's dying sister is especially touching. Readers looking for a touch of romance will be pleased to know that Camri and Patrick's relationship unfolds with just the right touch. There is nothing better than going through difficult circumstances to forge a true bond and connection, and when God is at the helm, real love results. The final chapters will leave smiles on readers faces!

Peterson has done a great job at introducing us to Judith and Kenzie, friends Camri makes en route to San Francisco, and characters who will star in the next books in the series. Each has their own mystery to unravel, and as such I am already eager to find out what happens next in their own novels.

"In Places Hidden" is a great start to what is sure to be an intriguing series. The characters are interesting, the historical setting provides the perfect backdrop to the story, and I quite enjoyed the suspense as well. I award this novel a solid 4 out of 5 stars.
