    Darkly intriguing, incredibly menacing, and briskly paced!

    In this compelling first installment in the Criminal Profiler series, Hide and Seek, Burton has written a tortuous whodunit where cases from the present and the past will intertwine, suspects will be abundant, and danger will lurk just around the corner.

    The writing is tight and tense. The characters are astute, consumed, dependable, and persistent. And the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat as it submerges you, page after page, into

    In this compelling first installment in the Criminal Profiler series, Hide and Seek, Burton has written a tortuous whodunit where cases from the present and the past will intertwine, suspects will be abundant, and danger will lurk just around the corner.

    The writing is tight and tense. The characters are astute, consumed, dependable, and persistent. And the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat as it submerges you, page after page, into a world of murder, abduction, arrogance, rape, violence, terror, deception, palpable chemistry, and a side of steamy romance.

    It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Mary Burton’s stories, and like all of her previous novels I’ve read, Hide and Seek keeps you engrossed, guessing, and without a doubt wanting more.

    Thank you to Mary Burton and Joan Schulhafer Publishing for providing me with a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

    FBI Special Agent Macy Crow is not a woman who gives up easily. Still in recovery after a hit and run almost killed her, Macy is eager to get back into the field. Her first assignment is the case of Tobi Turner, a high school girl whose bones were recently found after fifteen years. Working with Macy is local sheriff Mike Nevada, a former agent and someone Macy has a personal connection with. As Macy and Mike work Tobi’s case, the pair uncover several other cases from the time Tobi went missing that now appear to be connected. And after another woman goes missing, Macy and Mike are in a race to find the killer before it’s too late.

    Macy is the sister of Faith McIntyre, the main character in the author’s recent book

    . It was during the events of

    that Macy was involved in the hit and run that almost killed her that she’s still suffering the effects from in this book. Macy despises the limitations she now has due to her injury and as a result she pushes herself harder than she should so soon after being hurt. I understood Macy’s frustrations as she was a woman used to doing and doesn’t like being sidelined.

    Macy worked with Mike in the past and the two had a no strings relationship at one point. When the pair meet again, it’s clear there’s still something between them and I enjoyed watching them dance around their obvious attraction. The pair work well together and they understand each other both professionally and personally. When their relationship does progress, I enjoyed the direction things went and felt it fit their relationship perfectly. Plus the sex scenes between the duo are fantastically done with the perfect amount of steaminess.

    The investigation in this book was incredibly interesting and I was curious who would end up being the killer. The killer in this book is extremely depraved, having moved from stalking to rape to murder. The more Macy and Mike looked into Tobi’s death and the string of rapes, the more the pair uncovered. At times it felt like they were finding one thing after another which did lead to the book being quite fast paced. I liked that there weren’t any dull moments and felt the author did a great job keeping you hooked. The ending of the book was very well done in my opinion and I thought the final showdown with the killer in particular was fantastic.

    Overall I really enjoyed

    and I really liked the connection to her previous book

    . I definitely recommend these books if you prefer your romantic suspense to focus more on the suspense aspects.

    Hide and Seek by Mary Burton is the first book of the new romantic suspense Criminal Profiler series. While this is listed as the first book of a new series it isn’t the first look at the characters. Macy’s accident that she had just recovered from actually happened in Cut and Run by Mary Burton with her having ties to those characters and a part in that story which gets mentions in this book so one may want to pick that up first although it’s not totally necessary.

Macy’s accident that she had just recovered from actually happened in Cut and Run by Mary Burton with her having ties to those characters and a part in that story which gets mentions in this book so one may want to pick that up first although it’s not totally necessary.

    Hide and Seek begins with Special Agent Macy Crow looking for her new position as she returns from her accident. As Macy agrees to prove herself worthy she gets sent to investigate a new case when the bones of a missing girl had been found.

    Beginning to investigate Macy finds herself again working with the local sheriff, Mike Nevada who she had once shared a night together. Although the bones that were found were from a fifteen year old case Macy quickly begins to find links between this case and others from the past as they discover a killer.

    Anyone who has picked up a novel by Mary Burton knows she does romantic suspense and does it very well and Hide and Seek is no exception. This was another thrilling ride as the main characters chase a killer while navigating a relationship. Whether a long time fan of Mary Burton’s or new to her work I think everyone will enjoy this tense mystery.

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

    Great, twisty plot and a hot, co-workers and lovers romance. It worked, but not without some minor problems. The backstories were muddled and not fully explained, or maybe I just lost interest. Lots of characters made it tough to keep track, or that could be that I was more interested in the softball games I was watching while reading, not sure. Anyway, this was a great Karen R

Lots of characters made it tough to keep track, or that could be that I was more interested in the softball games I was watching while reading, not sure. Anyway, this was a great Karen Rose wannabe and a solid read.

    Special Agent Macy Crow is working her way back to full functionality and it is a tough road after she is nearly killed by a hit and run driver on a case that was more personal than professional. She is up for a place on an elite FBI team and ends up on the case with former lover, former FBI Special Agent Mike Nevada, who is now the Sherriff of Deep Run, VA.

    Mike Nevada came home and discovered that the Sherriff was not acting in the best interests of the people he was supposed to protect, so he quit the FBI, ran for Sherriff and won. What he discovers is a body from 15 years ago and a cover up he couldn't ignore. Tobi's remains and the untested rape kits lead Nevada to request FBI assistance and he gets Macy. What they find is a monster who for 15 years has terrorized and murdered women.

    First Mary Burton read and it certainly won't be my last!

    ,

    wasted no time in getting the action started. When the remains of local girl, Tobi Turner , who went missing in 2004 are discovered the local police call on the expertise of the FBI. I loved the characters especially Special Agent Macy Crow and Deputy Sheriff Bennett. She's fighting her own personal battles, but her dogged determination to get answers is what really won me over. As Macy and the local Sheriff , Mike Nevada(an ex lover) look into the case, they soon stumble upon additional information that indicates that this case may be bigger than they thought possible.

    So why the 4 star? Well, as fine as the romance between Mike and Macy is over the course of the storyline. There was this one oddly placed steamy sex scene that pops up right in the middle of everything in the case being solved that distracted rather than drove the plot.

    Overall, pulse pounding action and memorable characters make the

    series on my must watch list.

    Special Agent Macy Crow was first introduced in Mary Burton's

    where we also met her twin sister, Faith. Macy was injured during the investigation Faith was helping with, the investigation that actually led them to each other. Now, Macy is ready to get back out in the field and prove that she can still do her job and do it well. Which leads her Deep Run, Virginia, and to one-time lover Mike Nevada.

    If you know me then you know I'm a huge fan of Mary Burton. With each book I only fall deeper and deeper into love with her books and storytelling. I'm never disappointed when I pick up one of her stories and this book was no different. She had me on the edge of my seat trying to piece together the puzzle she created. I love when I have to work for the answers and they aren't obvious right from the start. With Macy and Nevada's investigation I had so many theories on what happened or was going to happen and it had me captivated.

    One of the amazing things about Ms. Burton's books is that she involves all the characters. It's not just the main ones that you fall in love with, it's all the secondary characters that also have so many secrets that come out and have you loving them as well. There's so much to discover from every character involved and I find it truly fascinating. Honestly, if you haven't read one of her books by now you are completely missing out and I definitely vote for you to start with this one.

    You could say surviving a life threating hit and run could be the ultimate

    You could say surviving a life threating hit and run could be the ultimate challenge for Macy. Instead of succumbing to the overwhelming necessary recovery, she used her desire to be part of the FBI’s elite profiling team to pull her through the tough times. Macy stayed focused and came back to work.

    When there is an opportunity to show she is serious about that coveted position on the profiling team, Macy convinces the powers that be to give her a chance on a cold case that popped up. Macy is off to look into the discovery of 15-year-old bones of a young high school girl.

    What adds to this exercise for Macy is the man she has to work with. Mike Nevada was just like Macy, a Special Agent, and now is the town's sheriff. He also happened to be a onetime lover of hers so there is a respect and past relationship which binds.

    These two work this case and uncover more than expected... it looks like this one girl was not the only one touched by this monster. As they both uncover the past, the perpetrator rises again and locks onto Macy as his next target.

    This read like a runaway train and I held on to the end. Although the characters had been introduced in Cut and Run, I had no difficulty in jumping into this new series.

    Macy is back at the Bureau on desk duty after a hit and run assault almost cost her life, but she’s got a chance at getting back in the field when the bones of a missing teenager, Tobi Turner, who disappeared fifteen years earlier are found and DNA connects the case to other unsolved assaults around the county. She’s pulled in to connect the dots while working with her former FBI colleague and lover, the newly elected sheriff, Mike Nevada.

    There was never a dull moment, especially since

    Macy is back at the Bureau on desk duty after a hit and run assault almost cost her life, but she’s got a chance at getting back in the field when the bones of a missing teenager, Tobi Turner, who disappeared fifteen years earlier are found and DNA connects the case to other unsolved assaults around the county. She’s pulled in to connect the dots while working with her former FBI colleague and lover, the newly elected sheriff, Mike Nevada.

    There was never a dull moment, especially since the killer is on the hunt and targeting new victims as Mike and Macy race to unmask this villain. To find Tobi’s killer they must go back to the beginning, interviewing her friends and schoolmates who’ve since grown up. Macy uses her top-notch instincts along with the FBI’s cutting-edge technology to analyze the evidence, melding good old-fashioned detective work with modern crime fighting tools, and I enjoyed the process.

    The romance between Macy and Mike wasn’t the focus for the most part, which made sense given the urgency of the case, but their chemistry was a constant nice buzz in the background. Macy’s a little unsure of Mike’s feelings since she’s still not at 100% physically since the hit and run, but Mike’s intent was always clear to me, and I knew it was just a matter of time before their feelings turned into more.

    I could not put this one down!

    was an addictive, fast-paced mystery with a nice bit of romance. Macy Crow was a secondary character in Cut and Run, where her attack occurs, but it’s not necessary to read it before diving into

    . I enjoyed seeing Macy get back on her feet after the assault, never letting self-pity or doubt creep in and cripple her.

    Hide and Seek by Mary Burton is the first book in Criminal Profiler series. I enjoy reading Mary Burton’s books and this one did not disappoint .A well written fast paced plot , with interesting characters made in an enjoyable read though I would suggest reading Cut and Run first to understand the backstories of the characters.

    I would like to thank Montlake Romance & NetGalley for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest and fair review.

    There is a reason why I love thrillers. I think this is one genre that has yet to see a dry spell when it comes to content and authors. Even after reading so many over the years, there is still room for finding more good ones and Hide and Seek is one such example. This is my first Mary Burton book and with it I have found another author that I want to read more from.

    There is a reason why I love thrillers. I think this is one genre that has yet to see a dry spell when it comes to content and authors. Even after reading so many over the years, there is still room for finding more good ones and Hide and Seek is one such example. This is my first Mary Burton book and with it I have found another author that I want to read more from.

    This is book one in the romantic suspense Criminal Profiler series, but it is not the first outing for the main characters Special Agent Macy Crow and former FBI agent and now Sheriff of Deep Run, Virginia Mike Nevada who were introduced, as I found out in another book by the author titled, 'Cut and Run'; however, since the storyline of this book is different to the other one and enough bits of the previous book are mentioned here, I did not feel any hindrance while reading the book.

    This book starts with a cold case. Tobi Turner's, a high school student who went missing in 2004, skeleton remains are found in a shaft of an abandoned barn in 2019 during a project of breaking the building down. Mike Nevada calls in Macy Crow to help out with the case. Macy soon discovers a connection between the rape and murder of Tobi by strangulation to other cases of rape and attempted strangulation which occured around the same time as Tobi's disappearance as well as succeeding years in different areas around the country. While they are investigating this case, a fresh victim's body is found which leads Macy to conclude that not only is it the work of the same person but the person could be someone very close to home.

    With a gripping plot line and well etched out characters, this is a fast paced book without a dull moment.

    My thanks to NetGalley, Montlake Romance and the author for providing me with an e-ARC of the book.
