ARC Review: You Can Hide – Rebecca Zanetti (Laurel Snow #2)

Set against the atmospheric backdrop of rural Pacific Northwest, New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti’s thrilling suspense series follows FBI Special Agent Laurel Snow as she strives to navigate her complicated family life when her newly discovered sociopathic half-sister becomes the target of a dangerous killer. The Blacklist meets The Profiler meets Justified in this fast, page-turning thriller that will have readers guessing until the very end!

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…

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Rebecca Zanetti did it again. You Can Hide is the perfect follow up to Laurel and Huck’s thrilling lives. It left me on the edge of my seat and convinced I knew who the killer was (I didn’t by the way!). There were so many twists and turns, and I loved every minute of it. I genuinely struggled to put this book down.

You Can Hide picks up shortly where You Can Run (book one) ended with Laurel being called back to the same small town she had just finished wrapping up a serial killer case for. Why? Because there’s another serial killer on the loose.

I loved so many things about this book, I don’t even know where to start.

First, the characters. Laurel is still wonderfully Laurel. She’s neurodivergent, and despite being super smart, she knows she is still learning when it comes to social skills. That doesn’t stop her from kicking a** and taking names, though! She’s independent, fierce and exactly the person you want in your corner if being targeted by a psycho killer. Then there’s Huck. He’s also independent, stubborn and grumpy (in the best way). Laurel and Huck work well together, both on and off the case. My only little comment is that this series is slow burn, so prepare yourself for a lot of wishing they’d just kiss (again) already!

Next, the plot. As previously mentioned, this book is thrilling. I was so sure I knew who the killer was, with only a very teeny tiny suspicion it was another character. But I was wrong on both counts. I really loved that I never knew who or what was going to be next.

As for the rest of the series, though, I’ve already spoken with another bookstagram friend about our theories on the overall story arc. I’ll have to re-read both books to see if I can pick up any other little tidbits but it’s safe to say that I cannot wait for book three!

Something good to mention as well is that this story was so easy to get back into. I loved You Can Run (book one) but couldn’t remember many details. When I picked up You Can Hide, I immediately started remembering details of the first book and it was like all the little puzzle pieces started fitting back together easily.

Overall, this was such a fantastic addition to the Laurel Snow series and RZ is a phenomenal author. I’ve read several of RZ’s books (across various series) and I feel like they just get better and better. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense/thrillers, slow burn, or fans of series similar to JD Robb’s In Death.
