Rules for Disappearing

"She’s been six different people in six different places: Madeline in Ohio, Isabelle in Missouri, Olivia in Kentucky . . . But now that she’s been transplanted to rural Louisiana, she has decided that this fake identity will be her last.

Witness Protection has taken nearly everything from her. But for now, they’ve given her a new name, Megan Rose Jones, and a horrible hair color. For the past eight months, Meg has begged her father to answer one question: What on earth did he do – or see – that landed them in this god-awful mess? Meg has just about had it with all the Suits’ rules — and her dad’s silence. If he won’t help, it’s time she got some answers for herself.

But Meg isn’t counting on Ethan Landry, an adorable Louisiana farm boy who’s too smart for his own good. He knows Meg is hiding something big. And it just might get both of them killed. As they embark on a perilous journey to free her family once and for all, Meg discovers that there’s only one rule that really matters — survival."

This book starts out with the "Suits" waking them up in the middle of the night to relocate the family. There is lots of action. It's set in Louisiana and I love that it was written by a Southern girl or at least someone who has spent some time in the South, because I'm sick of books with cliche stereotypes and fake accents. Also, if the hero weren't a Southern gentlemen something that happens in the resolution could not have happened, which I love.

And Ethan--the hero. He's a perfect Southern gentleman. Now, I think for some the way he always manages to show up at exactly the right time to save the day will be off-putting. (Too convenient of the plot) but for me, I loved it. What's the point in having your own Southern gentleman if he can't happen to show up when you need him? LOL. I loved this book and am looking forward to the next one. But I did deduct a star because while I was enjoying it, it didn't get un-putdownable for me until 60% though.


  1. Sounds like a good idea to add suspense to romance. A winning combination.

    1. My last 3 projects have been romantic suspense and now that I'm writing a straight romance again it feels weird. Like not fast enough.

  2. This sounds really different. I like lots of action, too!

  3. Sounds wonderful. Thanks for the review!

  4. I've been meaning to check this one out.

  5. This one sounds good. I love a nice Southern gentlemen love interest. Great review!
