Hidden: The Texas Murder Files by Laura Griffin

(Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book: (from Goodreads)
When a woman is found brutally murdered on Austin's lakeside hike-and-bike trail, investigative reporter Bailey Rhoads turns up on the scene demanding access and answers. She tries to pry information out of the lead detective, Jacob Merritt. But this case is unlike any he's ever seen, and nothing adds up.

Bailey has a hunch the victim wasn't who she claimed to be and believes this mugging-turned-murder could have been a targeted hit. When she digs deeper, the trail leads her to a high-tech fortress on the outskirts of Austin where researchers are pushing the boundaries of a cutting-edge technology that could be deadly in the wrong hands.

As a ruthless hit man's mission becomes clear, Bailey and Jacob must embark on a desperate search to locate the next target before the clock ticks down on this lethal game of hide and seek.

my thoughts:
A romantic thriller chock full of suspense and mystery - how could I not love this book? It was fantastic! Gripping, thrilling, and addictive. I found myself gobbling this book right up - I enjoyed the fast-paced action, the red herrings, and the spark of romance that threaded through the story.
Griffin has created a new series that you will love to get lost in. The writing was terrific - engaging and entertaining. The characters were annoying, flawed, and relatable at times; all of which made them characters you wanted to get to know. As for the story, it was suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read more of The Texas Murder Files series and even more of Griffin's work.
I would happily recommend Hidden to fans of Griffin and to anyone looking for their next read - you will LOVE this book!!
