Title: Hide Not Seek
Author: D.E. Haggerty
Genre: Cozy Mystery, Romance, Humor
I know who you really are.
Pru has a secret, which she has no plans to reveal – ever. But after a woman is murdered and all clues point to her, she has no choice but to disclose her true identity. When her revelations help thwart the killer’s plan to frame Pru for the murder, the killer begins stalking her. With each note he sends, he gets closer. The police are stumped. Pru wants to run away. She really, really wants to run, but Ajax has found the woman of his dreams and he’s not letting her go anywhere. He can be patient. In the meantime, he’ll protect her with his life. Pru isn’t feeling very patient, and her friends, Mel and Terri, are definitely not willing to wait until the police uncover who the stalker is. The three friends take matters into their own hands and jump headfirst into the investigation.
Will Pru and her friends uncover her stalker before he turns his violence on Pru?
What a fun book this was! Hide Not Seek may be the best book in the series. If you haven't read book one or book two, you will have no trouble picking up on the storylines. The author is able to completely summarize the story of the previous book in just a few paragraphs. The reader completely comes to love Pru and if there has been any reading of the earlier books, you fully love reading about Mel and Terri and Owen and Ryder.
Another amazing part of this book is that you can't know who the killer is. The author gives every reader a shaking surprise ending and it just makes you go WOW! Someone might argue that this is kinda formulated but formulated in a working way isn't a bad thing. Didn't Earle Stanley Gardner have a formula? Didn't Arthur Conan Doyle have a formula? Both of them wrote amazing fantastic stories. This book is like a warm hug that you just want to wrap your arms around.
I have loved book two and now I have loved book three and I said today upon finishing to Mrs. N, “I want to read book 1!!!”
This book is good for everyone. I think anyone who enjoys any detective/mystery book will love this book as it’s hard to put down.

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom's Harlequin romances, to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn't flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.
Hide Not Seek is my fifteenth novel.
