Overview

The trouble with running away is that you take yourself with you.

After police officer Colleen McDonald is injured in a case gone south and her partner dies, she leaves her job and friends in small town Oregon for a fresh start as a civilian in Orlando. When a deputy sheriff comes to her door investigating a possible missing person, she�s determined to get him out of her life by beating him at his own game.

Jeffrey Walters is missing�or is he? His stepdaughter insists he is. His aunt claims he�s simply out of town on business. His former business partner knows nothing. There�s a stranger living in his guesthouse.

To Deputy Sheriff Graham Harrigan, finding Jeffrey might be his ticket to a permanent slot in the Criminal Investigations Division. He�s determined to prove he�s worthy of the promotion despite an unearned reputation passed down by an unsavory training partner. The attractive woman living in Jeffrey�s guesthouse complicates matters. Their rivalry becomes a partnership that stretches the boundaries of a professional relationship.

Nowhere to Hide features Colleen McDonald, a character first introduced in Finding Sarah, Book 1 in the Pine Hills Police Series. In series chronology, the book would fall between Finding Sarah and Hidden Fire, but Nowhere to Hide stands alone and can be read in any order.

Editorial Reviews

Siren Book Reviews - Nikki Reviewer
From the first page, Nowhere To Hide had me hooked. With a woman hiding from her haunting past, a missing man, a landlord who is mysterious and forgetful, and a cop who asks a lot of questions.

The inner conflict with the heroine and the surrounding suspense make for a chilling, suspenseful read. It left me guessing until the end, and has a perfect blend of romance and intrigue. Fast paced, energetic, and full of mystery; fans of romantic suspense should not miss out on this one.
Long and Short Reviews - Camellia Reviewer
Terry Odell creates characters that the reader can empathize with and cheer on as they cope with overwhelming challenges. She also writes a love scene that makes one apt to agree with Colleen that �sex rocks�. Her writing style is so smooth that she seems to disappear and the characters come alive so the reader is in the moment with what is going on.

Nowhere to Hide captivates and keeps one turning pages.
Single Titles - Donna Zapf
NOWHERE TO HIDE has a page-turning plot that is fresh and compelling with plenty of twists and turns to keep us on our toes. Romantic suspense author Terry Odell presents genuine characters that grow and develop as their story is told. Sharp dialog, likable characters, passion and an engaging storyline make NOWHERE TO HIDE an entertaining read.
Romance Junkies - Pamela Denise
NOWHERE TO HIDE is an enjoyable and well plotted mystery. Terry Odell details police procedure and nails down routine investigation customs in a way that draws the reader in. She drops a steady stream of subtle clues, building up to more obvious ones as the conclusion nears, but works in enough turns to make the mystery a tough one to solve... If you enjoy a good investigation novel and a touching romance, this is the book for you.

Meet the Author

Terry Odell was born in Los Angeles, moved to Florida, and now makes her home in Colorado. An avid reader (her parents tell everyone they had to move from their first home because she finished the local library), she always wanted to "fix" stories so the characters did what she wanted. Once she began writing, she found this wasn't always possible, as evidenced when the mystery she intended to write rapidly became a romance. When she thought about it, she realized that her favorite mysteries were series where she could follow the developing relationships of the protagonist�to the point where she'd read the book twice; once for the relationship and again to follow the crime and its solution. So, she started reading romance, and found there was a genre that included mystery themes as well as a relationship.

Although her genre is labeled "romantic suspense", Terry prefers to think of her books as "Mysteries With Relationships." You can find more about her at her website,

Former cop Colleen MacDonald left her life in Pine Hills, Oregon for a fresh start in Orlando, Florida. But starting over is harder than she thought because the nightmares find her just the same. When she meets hunky patrol officer Graham Harrigan, she learns her new landlord, Jeffrey Walker, might be missing. The cop in her is intrigued by the puzzle. As she and Graham start to untangle deadly threads, an attraction develops and deepens between them, complicating matters. Bodies pile up and Colleen realizes her heart is another casualty. She’s lost it to Graham, but his job triggers her nightmares and gives her panic attacks. She ran from trouble before. Will she run again? Odell writes a compelling story rich with insights into the world of cops and medicine. Her take on stressful situations resonate long after the last page is turned.

Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** Much is happening from the get-go in Nowhere to Hide. Colleen MacDonald, suffering from Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder learns that the trouble with running away is that you take yourself with you - even the subconscious tags along with its bag of nightmares. Feeling like a failure, Colleen moves from Oregon to Florida to start life over. Determined to make a life that has nothing to do with law enforcement, she almost panics when a uniformed cop show up at her door in less than 24 hours after she arrives in Orlando. Graham Harrigan, a cop on a trial period to become a detective, makes a routine house call following up on call from a concerned daughter and meets the green-eyed, red-haired Colleen - not his type but intriguing. Her attitude is not what he usually encounters and that makes him wonder what she is hiding. The forgetful Doris, Colleen's landlady, and Tracy, Colleen's new friend liven up life for Colleen, even though Doris does prove to be somewhat of a mystery. Patrolman Clarke, Graham's nemesis, creates tension but nothing like the mystery man that comes and goes from Doris' house. However, the man the reader never meets proves to be a mighty force in the mystery that propels Graham and Colleen along on an investigation that starts with a tiny clue. As one small clue builds on top of another, Colleen gets more and more involved but her panic attacks and nightmares keep her at odds with her activities with Graham and makes her doubt her ability to have a future with him. Terry Odell creates characters that the reader can empathize with and cheer on as they cope with overwhelming challenges. She also writes a love scene that makes one apt to agree with Colleen that "sex rocks". Her writing style is so smooth that she seems to disappear and the characters come alive so the reader is in the moment with what is going on. Nowhere to Hide captivates and keeps one turning pages.
