Review: Hidden in the Stars by Robin Caroll

PLUS a $200 Giveaway & “Fall into Fall” Facebook Party!
21875729 This was a very interesting book and I liked both of the main characters. I felt sorry for Sophia Montgomery, who was the victim of a brutal attack that left her mother dead. As the book progresses, she learns many disturbing things about members of her family, however, she is a very good example of someone with a strong faith in God. The things she went through and what she learned could have crippled someone without that faith. Even when she was at her weakest, she leaned on God.

Detective Julian Frazier was not a man of faith. When his partner died, his confidence in God disappeared and he changed. Watching him find his faith in God again was a really touching part of this story. I really liked Julian and the fact that he and Sophia felt such an immediate attraction to each other without realizing the other felt the same.

This book was written from both Sophia and Julian’s perspectives. It was fun to watch the feelings for each other develop through the story. I also really enjoyed watching the detectives work through the evidence to discover who the men were who attacked Sophia and her mother.

The mystery behind the attack, and the way it was revealed piece by piece was interesting and creative. (4 stars)

Thank you to Abingdon Press and Litfuse Publicity for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.

You will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.

About the book:
21875729
A quilt holds the secret to a killer still at large—and who his next victim will be.

Following an attack that killed her mother and stole her ability to speak, 21-year-old Sophia Montgomery has no choice but to accept her estranged grandmother’s offer to return to their family home. Although detective Julian Frazier is working hard on the case, Sophia unknowingly frustrates him because her inability to speak thwarts her eyewitness evidence. The fact that Julian is undeniably attracted to Sophia doesn’t help either, so Julian hides his feelings as concern for a trauma victim and focuses instead on finding the killer.

Little do they know, the clues to solving the case may be right in front of them, displayed in Sophia’s mother’s “special” quilt design. Who will realize the secret Sophia’s unwittingly been hiding in plain sight? When the truth comes to light, will Sophia find her voice again? Or will the murderer—still at large—silence her forever?
