The Hideaway

Lauren K Denton

Now a USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestseller!

"A story both powerful and enchanting: a don't-miss novel in the greatest southern traditions of storytelling." -Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author

When her grandmother's will wrenches Sara back home, she learns more about Margaret Van Buren in the wake of her death than she ever knew in life.

After her last remaining family member dies, Sara Jenkins goes home to The Hideaway, her grandmother Mags's ramshackle B& B in Sweet Bay, Alabama. She intends to quickly tie up loose ends then return to her busy life and thriving antique shop in New Orleans. Instead, she learns Mags has willed The Hideaway to her and charged her with renovating it-no small task considering her grandmother's best friends, a motley crew of senior citizens, still live there.

Rather than hurrying back to New Orleans, Sara stays in Sweet Bay and begins the biggest house-rehabbing project of her career. Amid drywall dust, old memories, and a charming contractor, she discovers that slipping back into life at The Hideaway is easier than she expected.

Then she discovers a box Mags left in the attic with clues to a life Sara never imagined for her grandmother. With help from Mags's friends, Sara begins to piece together the mysterious life of bravery, passion, and choices that changed her grandmother's destiny in both marvelous and devastating ways.

When an opportunistic land developer threatens to seize The Hideaway, Sara is forced to make a choice-stay in Sweet Bay and fight for the house and the people she's grown to love or leave again and return to her successful but solitary life in New Orleans.

"Two endearing heroines and their poignant storylines of love lost and found make this the perfect book for an afternoon on the back porch with a glass of sweet tea." -Karen White, New York Times bestselling author

Repulsive
1 stars By Michelle, Sep 25 2018
This is what i read from a review at 'Good reads'. It is exactly my thoughts so i did a cut and paste job:

Ugh. That pretty much sums it up. I dislike reviewing books that I didn't like, but I didn't just "not like" this book, I was actually unhappy with it. It not only talks about, but also promotes, behaviors and lifestyles that are completely against what the Bible teaches. Since this book was published by Thomas Nelson, I expected something better. (Note: Although I wouldn't condone a book that is written like this, I would give more leeway in a review if the book wasn't published by a Christian publishing company. It's mainly because of the expectations I had because of the publishing company that made me so disappointed with the book.) 

I read the first fourth or third of the book, before realizing that the sin the characters were so obviously indulging in probably wasn't going to be addressed, but instead was being endorsed. After that I scanned the rest of the book, looking for redemption to come, but I never found it. 

Conclusion: 
I'm disappointed. The plot might be well-done, the characters might be well-written (although in reality I didn't really get into either), but the aforementioned content makes it so that I won't recommend nor knowingly read more from this author

A good and interesting book but has nothing about Christianity.

Is this supposed to be Christian?
2 stars By Ibu Guru, Jun 02 2017
The advantage of this book over other secular romances is the immoral bedroom scenes do not have pornographic descriptions. If you are looking for a book that idolises "love" and family but ignores God ... this fits the bill. I prefer a book that at least acknowledges that God is alive even if most of the characters do not obey him. I was very disappointed.
