In Plain Sight by Michelle Sutton review

About the book:

Jovana was held captive by her gypsy boyfriend for seven years, and when he abandons her she returns to her parents' home in Macedonia. Her brother Bojan introduces her to faith and offers her a new life in Arizona.

While in Arizona, she stays with her future sister-in-law, but as her brother's wedding approaches he is concerned that she will be unsafe staying alone. Her brother has his close friend, her boss Randy, stay with her while they are away to protect her, only she objects to being treated like a child. A handsome stranger is pursuing her and she likes it, but she has no idea his intentions are for her destruction.

On the other hand her boss, Randy, is a wholesome, good man who even speaks her language. She can't imagine a nice man like him wanting a woman with her history, so she pursues the dangerous man, but she gets in way over her head. At the same time she discovers a surprising attraction to Randy developing, and because she is afraid of her feelings toward him, she does everything she can think of to scare him off. But he's tough to shake loose, which is, of course, exactly what she needs to heal.


I think this might be one of my favourite Michelle Sutton books... but I've loved them all :). In Plain Sight really appeals to me because I find Jovana such a believable main character. I love how realistic she is and how true-to-life her reactions are. Michelle writes all of her books with incredible passion and truth and In Plain Sight follows her "edgy" style. I think Michelle has written a character that does exactly what so many women do when they feel insecure- try to use their "feminine assets"  to control the men in their life.

In Plain Sight is well written and very easy to read. I was hooked from page one and all that suspense and romantic tension just kept me reading! I seriously read the entire book in one weekend- I would have read it in one sitting if that pesky life and parenting stuff hadn't gotten in the way ;). I would definitely recommend this book to fiction lovers everywhere.

Thanks so much to Michelle Sutton for sending me an e-copy of this book to review.
