When Liam Sullivan died, at the ageof ninety-two, in his sleep, in his own bed with his wife of sixty-five years beside him, the world mourned.

Friday 56:

"Yeah." She went to the sink to wash dough off her hands. "And if I don't clean it up to Consuela's standards, I'll hear her clucking her tongue when she come in to clean tomorrow."
This week I am spotlighting the latest standalone title by Nora Roberts. I got this review copy of Hideaway from Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel, Hideaway.

Caitlyn Sullivan had come from a long line of Hollywood royalty, stretching back to her Irish immigrant great-grandfather. At nine, she was already a star―yet still an innocent child who loved to play hide and seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.

Some may have considered her a pampered princess, but Cate was in fact a smart, scrappy fighter, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bloodied, exhausted girl huddled in his house―but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge, reuniting her with her loved ones.

Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a shocking betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years spent away in western Ireland, peaceful and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul.
