Nadene's Satin Sheet Romance Review of In Plain Sight by Susanne Matthews


BLURB:  In life, you pay a price for everything you do. Widowed, her dream of starring on Broadway in ashes at her feet, Misty Starr yearns for a happy, healthy, normal life for herself and her four-year-old daughter, Debbie. Settled in Pine Falls, NY, a sleepy little town filled with friendly people, she believes she’s found it and feels safe enough to sing in an amateur theater revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. She’ll do anything to keep this life even if it is built on lies, because revealing her secret is impossible. When Nick Anthony joins the cast as music director, Misty is attracted to the man who stirs up feelings she thought long dead, but can love grow on a bed   of deceit?

A former concert pianist and secret CIA courier, Nick lives in darkness ever since the accident that killed his wife. The doctors say there’s nothing wrong with his vision, so why can’t he see? Hiding from his former life, he reluctantly agrees to help with the musical and is drawn to the young singer with the voice of an angel. When a mysterious fire destroys her home, Nick vows to keep her and her daughter safe. After one suspicious event leads to another, Nick is determined to protect them from an unknown assassin, but in order to do that, he needs to know her secrets. With his money and connections, he'll do whatever it takes to save the woman he loves, but does she love him enough to reveal the truth?


WOW! This was a fantastic story. In Plain Sight is a sweet romance with the right element of suspense which translates into an awesome read.  It takes excellent writing skills to be able to capture the reader's attention from the first page and to hold it until the end.  The author demonstrated her ability to do just that. I just could not get enough of this book.  Susanne Matthews has been added to my list of must read authors.

I was totally in love with Nick.  He is very caring and protective especially when it came to Misty and her daughter, Debbie. The romance between these two was quite sweet. There were times when I wish I was in Misty's shoes. She is one lucky lady. I liked how the author portrayed Nick and Misty. I  found them to be  quite realistic as they each had their emotional and physical traumas to deal with and it was easy for me to empathise with them. Debbie was such an adorable little angel and very smart too.

I loved how she played on the budding relationship between Nicks' personal assistant and Misty's friend Charlotte.  I do hope they get their own story.  

I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book and I must reiterate this was an awesome read.  My advice to you lovers of the romantic suspense genre is to get a copy and read. It will be worth your while.
