clipart-bars-dividers-1 About Secrets Hidden In the Glass:

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.

gold-dividerMy Take

About twenty years ago, Callie Davis, a famous stained glass artist, was left alone in a diner in Manhattan under unexplainable circumstances. She has no recollection of that day or days before that. Years after the event, Callie faces an artist block and decides to take a much-needed vacation. She is drawn towards Carter Island when she finds a brochure about a ‘Mary’s Buff’ located in the heart of the Island.

Callie lands in Carter Island and as the days pass, she finds herself falling in love with the Sheriff- Nate Carter. Soon Callie starts to have dreams about mysterious objects such as a locket and a rug. She doesn’t worry much about it until she finds an old photo of her and her biological mother visiting the island years ago.

She seeks help from Nate and they embark a journey towards finding the reason Callie was abandoned by her biological mother. But is it as simple as it looks? Are there secrets-dark and horrifying, hidden in the woods?  Are there experiences Callie remembers nothing about?

A fast-paced thriller, Secrets Hidden in the Glass deals with the scars Callie faced as a kid and remembers nothing about. She is terrified about her past but is determined to know the reason for being abandoned. The plot deals with all aspects of life that Callie faces. Her relationship with her adoptive parents is strong and they are her life support. They have given Callie a life she deserves, a life of comfort and love.

Callie and Nate share an intense bond. Their relationship is more about trusting each other through everything. Nate is extremely protective toward Callie and wants a more permanent, stable life with her. The love they have for each other is so deep and promising, it is a happy sight in midst of all the chaos. Callie feels home among the other islanders such as Molly, Gwen- Nate’s sisters, Bob-the captain of the ferry etc. They build a small, contented life along with Callie. They organize events, go for lunch, have bonfires etc. So Callie is pretty much settled on the small island.

The plot doesn’t give out much until the very end. Just bits and pieces to keep the investigation going, which makes it very enjoyable. Carter Island is a small island with a handful of people, which gives the reader an opportunity to hunt for the villain with the information the plot gives out from time to time. This makes it a very enjoyable read because the reader feels a part of the investigation and each event is now under the microscope.

There’s something about the plot that kept me drawing towards it. It was so difficult to put this one down. The pace of development of events is what’s gonna keep the readers hooked. The book is a tad bit long, and a little too detailed, which sometimes get’s frustrating because finding Callie’s past should be the aim, and not the present, especially when she’s baking muffins with Nate’s sisters.

Overall, this is an extremely interesting read. With an amazing storyline and really great writing style, this comes under my list of ‘Good Thrillers I have read.’

Intriguing, fascinating, brainteasing and twisted, Secrets Hidden in the Glass, is a thriller for the readers who love getting lost in a good book.
