Life has been complicated for Sydney Ross. Desperate for a new start, she leaves home but, during her travels, witnesses something that will forever alter the path of her life. On the run for the last six years, Sydney finds herself living the life of a nomad until she one day stumbles into a small town and hopes she's finally found a place to put down roots. With a good job in a local diner and, for the first time ever, friends who feel like family, things start looking up for Sydney. The biggest shock of all is catching the eye of the town’s most eligible bachelor, the sexy sheriff, Wade Jenkins.
Sparks fly between them, and it's not long before Sydney believes Elton, Missouri could be the home she's always wished for. But Sydney's past and her secrets have a way of catching up with her. When a brutal murder shakes the small town, Sydney is terrified that the countdown has begun on her time in Elton.
Have the shadows from her past found her again? The people who mean the most want her to stay, but that would put everyone, including her daughter, at risk. Can Sydney put her faith in Wade or will she keep running from a danger that even she doesn't fully understand?

My Review
I really enjoyed CONCEALED. Sydney is a very strong woman. While she shows a lot of emotion she is also well versed in keeping some emotions to herself. She is very dedicated to Faith and goes through every day making sure that she has everything she could ever want and more. Nothing is more important to her. She has a few dark secrets that she has been running from for years and has avoided falling for anyone. But living in Elton, she has come to care for many who are like her family. Her best friend Melissa is also quite a character. I enjoyed her matchmaking and trying to lead Sydney and Wade closer together. She is very impatient when she knows that it's good for both of them. She is also a big flirt and has grown up with  many of the people in Elton as most of the townspeople have lived there for many years. Wade is charming and mysterious with a past that the whole town knows. If was fun to watch these characters interact. I really loved the dialogue and interactions between the characters. Even Cara, Pete, and Agnes were really enjoyable.

There were some really intense moments and some really steamy ones. I read through this book very fast. I couldn't wait to finish it to see how everything would turn out. I was also surprised by the twist that comes toward the end of the book. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who loves a romantic novel. There were definitely a couple adult scenes in here so young readers be advised but it wasn't unexpected or raunchy just romantic interactions between two characters who really connected throughout the story. I have to say I would love to read another book by Victoria Michaels.
