Hiding Places by Erin Healy A Review

The Harrison lodge is full of hiding places where young Kate can discover all the secrets no one wants her to know.

Eleven-year-old Kate keeps her knowledge to herself—one sister’s stash of marijuana, the other’s petty cash pilfering, her grandfather’s contraband candy bars. She protects her mother and Gran, too, screening out critical comments from the hotel suggestions box. But suddenly the stakes are raised; her grandfather’s best friend is murdered the day after Kate heard the two men arguing.

At the same time, far from the quiet mountain resort, a homeless man sees a robbery gone wrong . . . a gang member seeks revenge for the death of his son . . . and a boy chooses the worst time to wield spray paint on a store window. In a strange and spiraling sequence of events, their disparate worlds collide at Harrison Lodge.

Kate offers shelter to one of them, unaware of the terrible consequences to the family she loves. But people can hide in all kinds of ways, sometimes even in plain sight . . . and some secrets are just waiting to be exposed.

  Hiding Places by Erin Healy is an excellent book. I’ve read many of Erin’s books and have enjoyed them all.
Eleven-year-old Kate is a girl who loves being a spy. She loves her family especially her grandfather. In this book you read about the adventures of Kate and how sometimes her family doesn’t even see her or care where she is or what she does.
  Hiding Places shows that families have so many secrets and things not even all of the family knows about.
  Kate hears a cat meowing in the middle of the night and goes out to see what it is. She comes across a young man who has had a motorcycle accident. She wants to go for help, but he won’t let her. He doesn’t want to go to the doctor either, even though he has broken his leg. So Kate and the young man struggle back to her house, but Kate knows about secret panels and rooms. So Kate helps to hide him.
  The young man is helping with a robbery when a boy gets in the way and they kidnap him to escape.  Later he is killed, but by whom.
   In the little town where Kate lives there has been a murder now Charlie is hurt and hiding from the men who think he killed the boy. So very, very suspenseful, full of intrigue and mystery.
  I love the secret panels and hiding places. Highly recommend this fascinating book.
