Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite Secrets Hidden in the Glass by Cate Beauman is a romantic suspense novel and a part of the Carter Island series. Callie Davis, a world-renowned stained-glass artist, is in desperate need of a break from her hectic Manhattan life. Carter Island seems like the perfect place to disappear for a few weeks. What she didn’t expect was to fall in love with not only the island, but the handsome sheriff, Nate Carter. Despite the idyllic setting, there is one thing Callie cannot escape—her abandonment as a child by her mother. As old memories begin to surface, sparked by her surroundings, new leads develop in the long dormant case, leaving Callie and Nate wondering what really did happen to her mother all those years ago? Having read Ms. Beauman’s Bodyguards of LA County series, I was very excited to delve into a new world by an author I had previously enjoyed. This novel presented like a slow burn, with the story developing day by day as Nate gains Callie’s trust and their relationship blossoms. I loved the supporting characters and the descriptions of the island setting. It was nice to read something so thoroughly written, with all the nuances of Callie and Nate’s relationship, and the impact of Callie’s childhood, fully fleshed out. As with her previous series, Secrets Hidden Behind the Glass by Cate Beauman offers readers the chance to really get to know a set of characters and their surroundings, while still offering a suspenseful and engaging plot. I will definitely be following the Carter Island series with great interest.

I have been a fan of this author's Bodyguard series, since it started, so I was super excited to see that she had written something outside the series. The writing reminds me a lot of Karen Rose's writing with a little more romance, but for sure lots of mystery and I think KR is a genius so, that tells you how I felt about this one. It was well written, and really long, it is well thought out and the characters are well defined and lovable. Every time I thought I had it figured out, there was a new twist that made me rethink. I loved Nate and Callie together and I really loved the townspeople that we got to meet. I honestly can't say enough about this book, if you don't have it...get it. If you have it....read it. I can not wait to return to Carter Island.

“Secrets Hidden in the Glass” by Cate Beauman centers around renowned stained-glass artist Callie Davis, whose long-needed vacation brings her to Carter Island, a halcyon community off of Massachusetts. Her retreat from the public eye brings her into frequent contact with Sheriff Nate Carter, whose ties to the island go back generations, and who feels responsible for all of those in his care, including temporary inhabitants like Callie. Their rapidly intensifying relationship is both exhilarating and frightening to the commitment-phobic Callie, and her mysterious dreams threaten to disrupt any peace she’s found. Nate needs to find a way to free Callie from everything that keeps her from accepting the joy she has found with him on the island, and if he has to solve a decades-old mystery to do so, so be it. This romantic suspense story is the first book in the ‘Carter Island’ series and sets the stage with a delightful look at an island whose inhabitants are integral to its history. The nice build-up of tension as we are introduced to the woman seeking peace and get a look at the members of the close-knit community she finds herself in made this a pleasant read. I thought things were a little drawn-out and some of the revelations were predictable, and I’d have liked a little more depth to some of the folks portrayed, but that didn’t deter me from enjoying the relationship that played out between the main characters. The heroine occasionally irked me with her vacillation and naivete even as I understood how scarred she was by her background. I like the genuine kindness and welcoming depicted that evoked that small-town atmosphere and was disappointed at the depth of betrayal displayed on several fronts, although perhaps that is more from my desire to believe in the innate goodness of folks than a story flaw. There are beautiful descriptions that allow one to armchair travel to a picturesque locale and deliciously romantic dialogue, such as…”In a lifetime of moments, we’ve known each other for a blink of time, but something changed the day we met.” Sigh. I think this is a good start to a new series and I look forward to seeing more of the inhabitants of Carter Island. A copy of this title was provided to me for review
