This book is sort of a murder mystery/thriller. It involves a group of friends that go to a remote spot. I absolutely didn’t see the ending coming. I highly recommend this one, it reminds me of an Agatha Christie.

I very much enjoyed this novel which gave me strong Agatha Christie vibe by the secluded setting and a group of friends that are seemingly on good terms but deep down experience some deep set animosity. A terrific read!

Nowhere to Hide is fast paced and suspenseful with a premise that drew me in. I enjoyed the multiple points-of-view and loved the setting - a nature group goes on a winter hike in an otherwise closed nature reserve. A gunshot rings out and they find one of the group dead. Alone, at night, with no cellphone reception and unsure who to trust, they have to traverse several snowy miles to get back to their cars and call for help. Recommended for fans of suspense.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC. The opinions in this review are honest and my own. #suspense #NowhereToHide

Prior to requesting Nowhere to Hide, I had just concluded reading Silent House and absolutely loved it. To request Nowhere to Hide, was a no brainer.

I have always been a fan of Nell Pattison's books and his writing style . Nowhere to Hide, is no different, this is sure to be a hit amongst his fans and soon to be fans.

Nowhere to Hide, is a standalone, which is nice compared to the usual series. I have been having commitment issues lately and like to bounce around between authors and genre's. Knowing that this would have a conclusion and not be left with a cliffhanger, was a breath of fresh air.

This is a character driven, murder mystery novel that will have you guessing right up until the very end. Once I started, I was unable to put this one down. The suspense completely consumed me.

Seven people at a closed park for a nature hike? Cue the eerie music, this just sets the tone for the fear that is about to explode amongst this group.

Filled with secrets, twists and turns, this is sure to be a page turner for anyone who decides to pick this one up. Oh, and the ending? You wont see this one coming!

A group of friends ( and I use that term loosely) out on a hike…what could go wrong? Well, a lot. For starters, a killer is picking off members of the group. Is it someone they know? An outsider? Who will make it out of the woods?
Great thriller, will be looking for more from this author!

I absolutely love Nell Pattinson's book. They are instant requests for me here on NetGalley and I have yet to be disappointed. I always appreciate the light she sheds on the deaf community. The way she writes her thrillers always keep me guessing, and Nowhere to Hide did not disappoint. The ending is a total trip!

I really enjoyed Nell Pattison's first Stand-alone book. It's a quick and entertaining read that was a nice break from heavy subjects a lot of my recent reads have contained.
I loved the isolated setting of the woods... especially in Winter!!! A group of 7 people in A Nature Group are celebrating Boxing Day with a hike into a Nature Reserve for some bird watching. Though the Reserve is closed for the Holiday, the group had gotten permission to use the grounds. This group of 7 we NOT friends.... In fact, there's a lot of resentment among all the Members. Especially from Lauren regarding her deaf Sister Emily. Emily has never let her hearing loss hold her back and has enjoyed a lot of success following an App she created for the Hearing Impaired. Lauren, who has to bust her hump just to make ends meet is definitely very resentful. Morna doesn't get on with Lauren because she feels SHE should be the group leader. Ben seems nice enough. He's a bit shy and the feelings he has for Emily borders on obsession. Dan, the newest member, is very quiet and keeps to himself. He's still feeling from the loss of his Wife and Child. And Kai rubs EVERYONE the wrong way with his arrogance and condescension. Then there's Alec. He claims to the group that he knows all of their dirty secrets. Is he telling the truth? Did he just say this or of anger to get under their skin?
As this group gets into the hike, it starts to snow and they divide up to climb the various tree stands for a clear view of the Starlings. Suddenly a gun shot rings out. Now one of them are dead and another of them are the murderer. But which one?
This is where the tempo picks up speed. They are alone in the Woods (remember.. the reserve is closed), it's snowing, it's now getting dark, and one of them just killed someone. If that's not a seriously creepy situation then I don't know what is!!!! At this point they decide to split into 2 groups to try and find help. From here, panic ensues. Everyone is running frantically through the woods, unable to find the way out. They are lost, scared, some injured and fully aware they could be the next victim. The pace hits full speed as we are given more information. The Author has a few twists up her sleeve and I was happy with the ending.
Overall, this is very enjoyable with the creepy feels and the tension of not knowing who is the killer. As with her previous books, we have a character who is deaf. There are a lot of very interesting facts regarding this topic as well as on bird watching that I found only enriched the reading experience. Another very well done book by this author and I eagerly await the next book!!!! A great read... especially for after dark. A big thank you to the Author, Publisher and Netgalley for an ARC copy in exchange for my honest review. #NowhereToHide #NetGalley

This is the third book I have read by this author and I have enjoyed all of them. An isolated nature preserve sets the stage for murder. Seven friends go out to bird watch and only six come back. One of them is a killer, but who? Everyone of them has a secret. One secret proves to be deadly. This story demonstrates that actions and decisions have consequences. Some consequences may result in murder! This slow burn mystery was entertaining with many unexpected twists. The final twist was shocking and clever. Thank you NetGalley and Harper 360 for my copy.

3.5 star for me! the shock and the twist was great and I felt like this had a typical storyline where one of them is a killer among the friend group. But overall the writing was good and I finished it and enjoyed it myself.
