Christmas Hideout by Susan Sleeman is the third book in the McKade Law series. It can be read alone but I think you will fall in love with the McKade family as I have and want to read all of them. Nicole has taken her daughter and ran away from her policeman boyfriend who has become to obsessive. Matt finds her hiding out in one of his family’s cabins. The special scenes for me where the ones where Matt and his family totally fall for Emilie. Emilie was adorable. Matt’s grandfather was a character. He is a great addition to the story. I enjoyed that several family members were involved in solving the case. In addition, watching Matt wrestle with how to run for sheriff and do a good job while also wanting to have a personal life is something many of us can relate too. Matt and his family try to keep them save and more attacks against her happen. The book has some twists and turns and some precious family moments. I would highly recommend. Sexual content - a few kisses, feelings violence - someone is threatening her, a couple deaths,

Filled with the heart-pounding suspense and masterful writing I’ve come to expect from Susan Sleeman, Christmas Hideout is the latest installment in the McKade Law series. Matt and Nicole’s story kept me turning pages far into the night. Little Emilie was adorable and Matt’s family is still charming, welcoming, and protective. I enjoyed revisiting them in this story. Sleeman’s knowledge and research skills are shown to advantage in her writing, and her characters are realistic and engaging. If you like stories filled with suspense, intrigue, and romance with a side measure of faith and inspiration, you’re sure to enjoy Christmas Hideout. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

This is the 3rd book in the McKade Law series, and was as much fun to read as the first two. Ms Sleeman has a wonderful way of telling a story that's got the right amount of mystery and romance in it. The characters are all realistic, and I've enjoyed following this close-knit family. The action is kept at a good pace. Nicole's daughter was preciously precocious. The only downside for me was when the real bad guy was revealed. His actions just didn't come across as credible. I thought Ms Sleeman could have done a bit better on that, but I felt the book still deserved a 5 star rating.

This is book three in the McKade Law series. It is a stand alone book, however I fell in love with the McKade family in book one and love the entire series. You do miss some history on the family if you jump into this novel but nothing that keeps you from understanding what is going on in this novel. I love the writing style of Sleeman, her books are always full of mystery, Suspense, romance and more. This book will focus on the handsome deputy Matt McKade. He has his life all mapped out and that does not involve a wife and child yet. But when Nicole Dyer and her beautiful, spunky daughter enter his life everything gets turned upside down. There are many twist, turns and suspense in this novel. I look forward to hearting more from the McKade family.

Nicole is in big danger when her ex- boyfriend starts stalking her. The author delivers a fast pace story with action that keeps up till the end. The beginning of the book starts with a bone chilling example of how far the ex-boyfriend will go. I would be running as fast as I could to get away from this crazy person. Nicole has to think fast and her character is smart and determined. I loved how she bumps into Matt. If you have to hide out, being in Matt's place is where you should go. I just love his family and how welcome they are to Nicole and her daughter. The story is intense and I couldn't wait to read more about Matt and his family. The author delivers another story rich in intrigue that had me on the edge of my seat. It sure is hard to figure out who to trust and Nicole is so determined to go back home and face danger alone. Her faith wavers at times which shows how we can doubt God when we are in danger. Matt is not sure Nicole is telling him the whole truth either and that causes friction between the two. It is a great story about trust and forgiveness. I can't forget to mention Nicole's daughter. If there ever was an adorable character, Emile is it. She had Matt and his family wrapped around her finger. There is no way Matt was going to let anything happen to Nicole and Emile. Get ready for an adventure with surprises and an ending with a twist. I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion.

Reading this two days before Halloween gave this stalker story a certain creepy ambiance. Knowing there's no way for Nicole to escape his shadowy clutches ratcheted up the already razor sharp tension. Her fierce protection for her daughter and the desperate thought of escape running rampant through her head adds another layer to that . I wiped my brow of nervous sweat when Matt McKade discovered the pair in his cabin on his families land. Knowing for certain he would keep them safe and his law enforcement family would envelop the pair in their protective bubble. But proving Nicole's ex-boyfriend cop of any wrong doing will take nothing short of a miracle! While these two have an almost instantaneous attraction to one another, Nichole can't bring herself to trust another law enforcement agent nor can Matt give up his dreams to take his father's place as Sheriff once he retires. Will time heal the wounds in Nicole's heart and can Matt find a happy balance to take a chance on love? Another terrific suspense by another favorite author of mine! Balancing high tension, pulse-pounding moments with a strong spiritual message and plenty of sweet little girl laughter & fun,Sleeman takes you on a ride of epic proportions in Christmas Hideout! I always look forward to what's coming next knowing I'm in for the adventure of my life! If you love thrilling suspense, faith-filled characters, and feeling like you're right there in the middle of the action, then I highly recommend this one. Why not pick up the other McKade Law series books while you're at it? *My thanks to the author for a complimentary copy. No review was required and all opinions are my own.*

HEART-STOPPING SUSPENSE! Christmas Hideout (McKade Law Book 3) is full of heart-stopping suspense from from the first sentence to the last! Susan Sleeman hooks you in the first paragraph and takes you on another wild adventure with the McKade family. The hero of this book is Deputy Sheriff Matt McKade who rescues Nicole Dyer and her precious little daughter. It’s a miracle her car died in front of the McKade’s cabins. The McKades open their home and their hearts to these two strangers and reflect the love of Jesus to them. Sleeman brings all the elements of romantic suspense to this novel. A young woman and her young child running for their lives from a deranged stalker. A Deputy who puts his own life, his family and his future on the line to protect this woman while he’s desperately trying to deny his attraction to her. Murders in a quiet, small town. Threats all around. Too many secrets to count. Who can you trust? Where is God in all of this? How can He forgive past mistakes and allow people to start over with a clean slate? Another novel to keep you up all night long! I was provided an ARC of this novel by the author. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.

Christmas Hideout by Susan Sleeman is the third book in her Love Inspired Suspense McKade Law series. Nicole Dyer is being stalked by her ex-boyfriend. She flees with her three-year-old daughter, Emelie. They find shelter in an empty cabin in the small town of Lost Creek. Deputy Matt McKade vows to make sure that nothing happens to the two of them. The first sentence had me on the edge of my seat and it continued for the whole story. Matt and Nicole both struggled with letting God control their future. When they finally realized that He always knew what was best for them they were able to rest in that knowledge. Sometimes we forget that He’s God and loves us unconditionally. It’s a lesson that sometimes must be learned over and over. If we can give our lives to God then there’s no worries about tomorrow. I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I love this McKade family! They are tough law enforcement people but better yet, they are a tight-knit family that not only help each other, but anyone else that needs their help! I really enjoyed this story about one of the sons, Matt. He has a lot on his plate as he has a goal of running of sheriff to take his dad's place soon. He's just out checking the family's cabins on their dude ranch one night and runs across a woman (Nicole) and her daughter in one - what??? He's naturally suspicious, being a law man - so when he hears her story that she's running away from a stalker ex-boyfriend, he's a little leery of her. But, her darling young daughter gets to him and he's not going to let them stay in the cabin during the winter so he bring them into his family home. Of course his loving family just embraces them and surround them with all their "law enforcement" connections! Nicole doesn't know what to think! Is this family for real? They practically adopt her daughter and her! I absolutely fell in love with Nicole's daughter! What a cutie! The stalker ex-boyfriend is a cop so that is extra hard to deal with! You definitely need to pick up this book and read it! It has a lot of twists and turns but I guarantee it'll keep you reading until the last page! I received the book from the author but wasn't required to review it. These thoughts are my own.

Once again, this talented author, gives us a Christian suspenseful romance filled with twists and turns that have you trying to figure the “whodunit”. As good as the suspense was, the relationship between single mom, Nicole Dyer, and Deputy Matt McKade was the real star of the story, as well as the faith in God. At times we forget that in order to feel an inner peace and find the right answers to our concerns and problems, all we have to do is do our best and leave the rest to God. This is a story about hope, love , faith , family and the miracle of Christmas. If you have read the previous stories about the McKade clan, you will enjoy catching up with them. If you haven’t , I highly recommend that you take the time and “meet” the family. Another engaging story with complex characters. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for Kendall, Matt’s sister. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
