Book Review-Secrets Hidden in the Glass-Cate Beauman

Monday, May 25, 2020

Callie May is a world known artist who works with glass. She and her artwork have traveled all over. She has reviews at a high class art exhibit house. She is however ready for a break--her muse has left and she figures if she takes a trip to a small island off the Massachusetts cost all will come back together for her. She was abandoned by her mother at around the age of 4. It made the news and she was known as "little girl lost". Nobody realized that Callie is one and the same and she intends to keep it that way! She was adopted almost immediately and grew up in a loving family. She could not stop wondering what she had done to make her biological Mom just leave her like that.

Sheriff Nathan Carter had grown up in the small town and knew virtually everyone in it! He was the first one Callie met--but she had no idea he was the Sheriff--he was busy fixing up some plumbing problems in the cottage she had rented. Turns out he was actually the owner. They were both immediately attracted to each other--but Callie was keeping her distance.

There are lots of twists and turns as Cassie and Nat finally decided to be more then friends and take everything one step at a time. Then Callie started having nightmares--she would wake up and draw what she saw. Eventually Callie also formed close bonds to all the character's who lived in the town.

Eventually Callie's background became known and Nat was bound and determined to find out what happened to Callie's Mom. Traumatic events occurred--and it took a lot to finally figure it all out.

I admittedly got a little leery when I realized there were over 9000 pages in this book! I was happily surprised that I was able to keep reading-not all at once this time--but close to it! I just had to know what happened and how it all would end.

This book will grip you and you won't soon forget it! I can't wait until I read the second book in this series!

I received this e-book from the Author for my entertainment and possible review.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The secrets of the past are always closer than we think…

Stained glass artist Callie Davis is in desperate need of a vacation. Burnt out and on the edge of a nervous breakdown, she’s fleeing the pressures of her career and is taking refuge on Massachusetts’ tiny Carter Island. Callie yearns for long, lazy days and pretty walks on the beach—blessed solitude and an escape from the complications of her life. Then she bumps into gorgeous Nate Carter and everything changes.

Sheriff Nathan Carter couldn’t be happier now that the height of the summer season has finally come and gone. After four endless months, tourists have packed their bags and headed for the mainland. The quiet days of autumn are about to befall the town—the way Nate and his fellow Sandersonians like it best.

But nothing ends up quite the way Nate expects when he meets the beautiful blonde with the big blue eyes. Callie’s pretty smiles hide secrets—deep, dark mysteries that could cost them both their lives if they continue digging into the past and cross a killer’s path.

This sounds like such an exciting story. I love to read. I can't wait to read this one. Thank you so much for sharing this.

It sounds like an interesting story with characters I'd like. Is it really 9000 pages???? Or is that a typo? Even 900 would be a long book. But it does sound like a good read.

Thank you Michele! Thank you so much for reading Secrets Hidden In The Glass and taking the time to write a review. I'm thrilled you enjoyed the story!

Yes, at 600 pages this is certainly a full-length romance! Book two, Aftermath Of Secrets, continues the story at a shorter length of 300 pages.
