Hide Not Seek is the third volume in The Not So Reluctant Detectives series and completes the trilogy with Pru’s story.Although she has not lived in Milwaukee for very long, Pru has formed a strong bond with Mel and Terri whose stories were told in the first two books.
She thought she had left the past behind her, and when she starts getting threatening notes we finally find out what Pru has been hiding from the others, but she does not give up her secret until absolutely forced to.
There are lots of twists and turns and a great surprise ending. You can read this on its own, but it will make a lot more sense if you read the books in order. I really like the relationship between the three women and how they complement each other. Their escapades are not so wild in this book, with Owen and Ryder more aware of what is going on, but that is good as Mel’s more extreme behaviour is kept in check.
As Pru is an English teacher, the chapters begin with cryptic quotes from poems and novels (they are listed at the end). Hide Not Seek is an enjoyable resolution to the series, and I am looking forward to reading DE Haggerty’s next book.
Thanks to the author for an ARC that I review as part of Rosie’s Book Review Team #RBRT
