    MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY is a fast-paced romantic suspense. The heroine, Tessa, found evidence against her fiance, but she looses the evidence and without it, no one can find anything substantial against him. Trent is a PI hired by her parents to find her, but Tessa doesn't know if he's a good guy or a bad guy. Who does she trust? In this game of cat and mouse, friends are enemies and enemies are friends. I read this through in an evening. The story never slowed down. Tessa and Trent were kept running for their lives and fighting to stay alive in a blizzard and only a step away from being captured. If you are a fan of romantic suspense or of Christy Barritt, you'll want to read MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY.

    Christy Barritt is one of my top five favorite authors at the current time, yet of all her books the ones I tend to like least are the ones published by Harlequin/Love Inspired Suspense. Don't get me wrong, I still give them a 4-Star rating at a minimum -- they're that good! -- but they rarely have that same spark that her self-published novels have. For me that changed with this book.Tessa has been on the run for eight months after collecting evidence that her fiance was selling secrets to foreign enemies. Trent has been hired by Tessa's family to find her and bring her home. Needless to say, bullets fly and there's plenty of action as Tessa and Trent try to stay at least one step ahead of the men hunting for them.Tessa may be my favorite heroine in Barritt's Love Inspired Suspense novels. She's wary but isn't scared of her own shadow. She and Trent work alongside each other as they attempt to regain the evidence needed to put her former fiance and his family behind bars. She can shoot well and can pick locks. She is definitely not the kind of girl who waits to be rescued by a man. And Trent, though he is protective of Tessa, isn't unwilling to allow her to use her skills when needed.Barritt once again provides action, intrigue, and strong, well-developed characters for an afternoon of reading pleasure. Mountain Hideaway is highly recommended.

    Another action packed book by Christy Barritt. Tessa is on the run from her ex-fiancé after she finds out he has ties to terrorism and tries to turn him in. Trent is has been hired by her family to find her and bring her home. When Trent does find her Tessa she doesn't know whether to trust him or not, but is quickly forced to make a decision as other men begin to come after her. From here on out, it felt like Tessa and Trent couldn't get a break. The pursuers always seemed to be right on their tail. Will Tessa be able to get out run those after her and get the evidence needed to turn her ex in? I enjoyed the energy of the story and the way each chapter ended in suspense. I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I enjoyed the story but I found a lot of editorial mistakes that should have been caught.

    Tessa feels like she is finally safe and has found a few people that she can trust. That all goes away one night when she starts to flee when someone comes after her. She finds herself having to trust the person who has found her, Trent McCabe when they both find themselves being fired upon. Tessa has to decide who she can trust and make sure that no one else gets hurt in the meanwhile. She also has to make sure that Trent believes her when no one else will as to why she is on the run. I really enjoyed this book by the author. It was well written and kept you turning the pages to see what would happen next and how they would be able to handle it. I liked seeing how the characters started to trust each other, but also how there were some twists to the story as well. I received a copy of this book from the author to review.

    From the first chapter, Christy Barritt in her latest Love Inspired Suspense Mountain Hideaway grabbed my attention. Every time I thought Trent and Tessa would be okay for a while, Barritt throws another curve in their way. Bullets fly. Near death experiences. All in a pursuit to save Tessa who discovered items about her ex-fiancé’s terrorist connections. The romance was too quick for my personal preference, but I know that is what Harlequin prefers. Tessa and Trent are heroic characters, and it was hard not to like them. Barritt hits it out of the park with another unique and tense storyline. I received a complimentary copy of Mountain Hideaway from Christy Barritt and the opinions stated are all my own.

    This book was fun to read but it wasn’t one I couldn't put down. What I liked: The suspense kept you on your toes, and I always love stories that take place in the snow. In this case, being stranded in the snow caused more tension which only added to the suspense.What I didn’t like: The scenes in the book where Trent and Tessa are discovered by the people trying to kill her are repetitive: They run, they find a place to hide, the men chasing her catch up with her, they overpower the bad guys and get away, then they run again. While it was suspenseful that they were caught, the same pattern each time became a little boring and very predictable.Over all, I give this book four stars and recommend it to anyone loving a good suspense.

    I enjoy reading suspense, and I enjoy all of Christy Barritt's books, including Mountain Hideaway. I engaged quickly and stayed up reading way too late, wondering what was going to happen next. Tessa is running from her ex-boyfriend and his long reach, as he has many powerful connections and no conscience. She doesn't know who she can trust, so she pretty much doesn't trust anyone. When she just begins to settle down and feel safe, Trent McCabe finds her in her mountain hideaway. Is he a friend, sent to find her by her family as he claims, or is he just one more person helping Leo to find her? There are plenty of twists and turns and chase scenes, enough to keep you wondering what will happen next.I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

    This book was awesome! I loved it. I know, I say that about every book... But seriously Tessa is the woman all of us ladies hope we can be. I don't think I would be strong and smart and brave In a life and death situation but I really hope I am. I had to have surgery and I turned into this big scared baby lol. This book is action packed! There are so many close calls and tense moments that I didn't want to put the book down. Then you throw in Trent and it makes things even better! People always say bonds are tighter when you go thru things together and that is defiantly the case with Tessa and Trent! This is one book you don't want to miss! Great job Christy!

    Mountain Hideaway is a very exciting book from start to finish. A real page turner and full of suspense. I didn't know from each passing moment what would happen next to Tessa and Trent. Highly recommend and believe it is one of her best suspense novels. This was a gift in exchange for an honest review. These are my own opinions and words about the book. Very good!

    True to form, Christy Barritt hands another action-packed suspense to her reader fans. She expertly handles twists and turns to the intense situations of her characters. I highly recommend all of her Love Inspired Suspense novels and my favorite series: Squeaky Clean Mysteries, Carolina Moon, Holly Anna Paladin and Cape Thomas.

    Give me a moment... I. Can't. Catch. My. Breath. Phew! When they say 'no safe haven' they literally mean no safe haven! At all. Anywhere. No sleep either. And uber bad guys hot on their tail all the time! Like don't blink or you might be gunned down. A whirlwind three days of hair-raising action and the hint of romance.Defibrillator suggested to have on hand before you start to read.

    Mountain Hideaway is a wonderfully scary book from the first page to the last. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I finished it in just two sittings. Christy Barritt mixes suspense, a little romance, Christian values and pure terror in this book. Please read it!
