I don't know how I feel about this book. It's not good, but it's not terrible either. I enjoyed it to an extent, but mainly because I was hoping there'd be more suspense and a better grasp on the romance, the murder investigations, and I like reading about the Search and Rescue aspect, even if I'm not a hundred percent sure if that's how it really works--I'm not an expert, but my suspension of disbelief in this book was really being tested on every level.
Like the first book, Hide'n Go Seek had potential for a good story--I liked the premise. Unlike the first book in this series, the execution was a lot better and the editor didn't get too lazy. I only noticed a few random glaringly obvious typos, grammatical errors, and forgotten or misplaced punctuation marks. There was, however, an over-abundant use of the comma in the most random places.
Again, these books could benefit from a good editing team.
Otherwise, the rest of the book wasn't too bad.
The storyline had potential, the characters were okay, and the murder mystery was fine. Well, okay, the murder mystery was outright predictable because I already figured out who the killer was within the first three chapters. Nonetheless, it played out pretty decently. The characters were actually kind of bland and there were parts where I just wanted to round everyone up and throw them all into a ditch. No. I did not care for many of these people.
For the most part, the book was another very "MEH" level of interest.
I have reserves about continuing the rest of the series for several reasons; the main reason being the most obvious: I have a really long TBR list already and I see no immediate need to read the next book in this series. However, I'm not brushing it off altogether and may or may not return to it in the future.
