Molly Schlofeld has spent the last five years of her life in hiding.  Testifying against her gangster father was a hard decision for Molly to make but one that she doesn’t regret.  She has finally made a life for herself and enjoys her job working in her friend’s florist shop.  She doesn’t allow herself to get close to anyone and while she is lonely, she knows that she has to stay vigilant to keep herself and those around her safe.  She watches everyone around her and anything out of the ordinary sets her senses on overload.  That is why she notices Dr. Dave Westfield.  She thinks he is following her but nothing could be further from the truth. 

Dr. Dave Westfield has his own ghosts in his past.  A car accident changed his life eight years ago and he is afraid to care about anyone again.  Unable to stop thinking about the beautiful girl in the coffee shop, Dave is ecstatic to see her in his pediatric clinic.  Now all he has to do is convince her to see him again.  He doesn’t count on how quickly he will come to care for Molly and it scares him to death.

Speaking of death, it looks like someone is following Molly and they aren’t being nice.  Just when Dave and Molly hit a crossroad in their relationship, they have to fight for their lives.

What a highly intense and emotional story Hearts in Hiding was.  I quickly became immersed in Molly and Dave’s world and found myself more than once rooting for both characters from the sidelines.  Dave’s accident was affecting him in so many ways that my heart broke for him more than once.  I think Molly’s love and fortitude was his saving grace. 

Leanne Karella has written a lovely novel in Hearts in Hiding.  Every time I read a book from this author I know I am in for a great story.  That was exactly the case with Hearts in Hiding.  Next time you are looking for a heart warming and sensuous read with intense emotions and suspense, I would suggest grabbing this baby and settling in for a great read.
