I laughed,cried, and overall loved this book. Feb 12, Christine rated it it was ok Shelves: Let me start with telling you that I do not care for the "contemporary romance" genre. Why did you read this then? Even the cover is 'Eww, yuck' I'm part of a reading challenge this month that wants us to read a gazillion romance novels. I'm only in it for the competition, and I'm going to read these as fast I can to get the pain over with NOT because I like this genre!
The next question may be: Why do you avoid this genre? They are so formulated and Let me start with telling you that I do not care for the "contemporary romance" genre. They are so formulated and predictable, there's just nothing to these sort of stories. Page one, we meet the girl.
On page three we meet the guy. And pages later, in some unrealistic world devoid of plain LIFE stuff, they are together Unfortunately, At Hidden Falls is no different. Give me some twists and turns. Make me feel for these people. Don't hand me the whole story in the first three pages, but take pages to tell it. I then waste hours of my life I'm never going to get back.

Nick is not interested in a relationship other than building one with his daughter who has just come to live with him after many years.
Megan has no trust for her father, or anyone for that matters. The other characters of Angel's Bay are main focuses also. I love this story and how all the characters and story lines contribute to a great story. Jan 25, Once Upon a Twilight rated it really liked it.

I will definitively be on the look out for book 5. By receiving a complimentary copy it in no way obligates me to write a good or bad review. I am an honest reviewer and my reviews are based on my own opinion and written only by me. I dove into this story not realizing that it is part of a series called Angel Bay with a paranormal slant.
Each main character has a psychic gift of sorts and in this case Isabella has the gift of "sight" where she can see the future and warn others of danger. I found the characters of Nick and Isabella unique and very likable with all of their flaws, mainly that they can see they are meant for each other. There are the usual twists and turns that build up the suspense and romance.
If you are lo I dove into this story not realizing that it is part of a series called Angel Bay with a paranormal slant. If you are looking for something magical and not too paranormal, give this series a try. I received this book at no charge from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Jul 01, MaryLennox rated it liked it Shelves: I liked the paranormal aspect of the novel actually the only kinda paranormal I can stomach anymore are psychics and I wished it played more of a center role in this story.
Everything else was just so This is my first Barbara Freethy novel - perhaps a bad one to start off with but it seemed the most interesting. I don't think I'll be reading any more from her, unless something really catches my eye. The romance was a tad too serious and the 'adventure' bits were a bit too rem I liked the paranormal aspect of the novel actually the only kinda paranormal I can stomach anymore are psychics and I wished it played more of a center role in this story. The romance was a tad too serious and the 'adventure' bits were a bit too reminiscent of a procedural cop show.
Aug 04, Casey Dawes rated it really liked it Shelves: This was the fourth book in the series that I read in very rapid succession. I found that this dragged in spots, maybe because I read them so close together. The problem with writing a series, is that you have to include enough information in the series for someone who reads them out of order, but it can be a bit redundant. The story is still a good read Now I need to put the next book in the series on my wish list!. Wrote about the experience of re This was the fourth book in the series that I read in very rapid succession.
Wrote about the experience of reading on my blog Nov 14, Kim rated it it was ok. Love the author, didn't care for the book. For one thing, Isabella kept having visions of the past, which had nothing to do with any part of the story line. Then those kind of ended without resolution. And there were so many competing story lines. Mar 04, SJuhl4 rated it really liked it Shelves: Another good installment in the Angel's Bay series. Good story, enough about past characters to keep you up-to-date without bogging the story down.
Hate to be against the Minister - but I really don't like Andrew. Is this sounding too much like a soap? Jan 12, Mindy rated it it was amazing. I really love this book. I love all the characters. I really love how the past and the present gets all intertwined. How things happen for a reason. The main characters are wonderful. I loved getting to know them. It can be a stand alone book but its also apart of a wonderful series. This book will leave you wanting to know more about hte secondary characters. Jul 08, Jill rated it really liked it. This part 4 of the Angel's Bay series really lives up to its previous offerings.
Barbara Freethy has once again grabbed my attention with another from her Angel's Bay series. I have trouble putting it down and can hardly wait to read the entire series Apr 11, Jeanne love2cook rated it really liked it Shelves: The 4th book in the Angel's Fall series. The main characters are Isabella Silviera, sister of the chief of police and Nick Hartley, son of the Hartley family theater.
The mystery element is a kidnapping. This small town with its heart warming people with their open arms, and, of course, small town gossip. But they mean well. Jul 06, Patricia Solla rated it really liked it Shelves: Although this is part of a series, I thought this was a good stand-alone story. There was good action throughout the book. Liked the great background information pertaining to the main female character's pyshic connection.
Dec 16, Nell rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked this book. I'm not much of a paranormal fan but, this element of the book wasn't a deterrent.
Series: Angel's Bay
Loved Isabella, and it was nice to see the relationship between her and her brother. Off to read Charlotte's book! Aug 20, Stephanie rated it liked it. I love that the Angels Bay stories build ontop of the previous stories yet they bring new characters and twists along with it. Bring on the next book! Dec 11, Evelyn Wilson rated it it was amazing Shelves: May 14, Audrey Haley rated it really liked it. Love love love this series. From the first novel, I was hooked. The story line between the two main characters gets boring at times until the end.
At Hidden Falls
It's like that for each book I've read so far. I don't care really. I like the twist at the end of each book. Jun 19, Kim rated it really liked it. Another excellent story in the Angel's Bay series. Slightly less exciting and a tad more predictable than the mysteries in books , but that in no way spoiled my enjoyment. I will be so sorry to not have these characters to read about any longer when I finish book 5.
Jul 31, Amy rated it it was amazing. Love Love Love these books. Only one more left. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.
If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel.
Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg.
Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist.
