The second installment in Rebecca Zanetti's Laurel Snow thriller series does not let up!

You Can Hide kept me reading way past bedtime!

Laurel is a brilliant FBI profiler, a child prodigy with multiple degrees, and a look-alike half-sister named Abigail, a sociopath and just as accomplished as Laurel. Set in the snowy Pacific Northwest, a violent serial killer is terrorizing the remote community. Laurel partners again with Fish and Wildlife Captain Huck Rivers to capture a predator who appears to have Abigail on his kill list. Or has Abigail made herself look like a victim to get her sister's attention??

The story twists and turns, the clues are shadowy with several dead-ends, and you feel the frustration of solving the case alongside Laurel and Huck. And they make a great team in more ways than one. Laurel is neurodiverse, brilliant, keenly observant, and brave, and Huck is intuitive, smart, knows the land, and deals with PTSD. I love their chemistry and how they understand one another.

On the other hand, Laurel and Abigail are playing a cat-and-mouse game. Abigail is highly manipulative and seemingly obsessed with Laurel, making her unpredictable in ways that will be intriguing to see play out across the series.

Suspenseful and fast-paced with high stakes and multiple subplots, the writing and pacing make this completely bingeable!

I loved the first book in this series, You Can Run, and it's probably a good idea to read it first. Described as The Blacklist meets The Profiler, these books are atmospheric, gripping, and intense!

Thank you to NetGalley, Kensington Books/ Zebra and the author for the opportunity to review this ARC. I enjoyed it!

My steep draws inspiration from the character of Diedre, Laurel's mother, who blends and sells teas, many with medicinal qualities. I chose Pink Tourmaline from Club Magic Hour teas. A white tea with dragon fruit, mango, hibiscus, lemon balm, and several herbs, including Echinacea and Tulsi.



What do you do when a sociopath loves you? Rising star FBI profiler Laurel Snow is about to find out …

Calling Laurel Snow’s relationship with her newly discovered half-sister challenging is an understatement. Not only does Laurel suspect Abigail is behind the mysterious disappearance of their father, but her erratic behavior also makes life in Laurel’s small hometown interesting, to say the least. Still, when Abigail claims someone is now out to kill her, Laurel’s instinct to protect her sister goes into overdrive. Then things get even more dicey as dead bodies start turning up in the icy waters of the Sauk River and there’s only one connection among them: Abigail . . .

Having Fish and Wildlife Captain Huck Rivers bringing in those bodies with his dive team only complicates matters. Huck is as impulsive and fiery as Laurel is coolly analytical, which makes their alliance risky at best. But standing up to such a demonically brilliant killer is going to take all the help Laurel can get. Because Laurel’s attempt to save her troubled sister’s life might cost her own . . .
