    The past isn?t real. It is simply a story we tell ourselves. And sometimes, we lie. The result of my first foray into C.J. Tudor?s world, a story teetering on the precipice of being something truly great. One little nudge?or in this case, more in regards to the why?would h...

    "I don't believe in ghosts. My nan was fond of telling me, "It's not the dead you need to be scared of, love. It's the living." She was almost right. But I do believe you can still feel the echoes of bad things." No one is as disappointed as I am that I?m having to write ?that?...

    "You can still feel the echoes of bad things. They imprint on the fabric of our reality, like a footprint in concrete. Whatever made the impression is long gone, but you can never erase the mark it left." Joe Thorne finds himself pulled back to his childhood hometown. A place fill...

    "But that's all life ever is. A promise. Not a guarantee. We like to believe we have our place all set out in the future, but we only have a reservation. Life can be canceled at any moment, with no warning, no refund, no matter how far along you are in the journey. Even if you've barel...

    ***NOW AVAILABLE*** Well this one has taken me a bit of time to collect my thoughts. It is a quite a bit different from The Chalk Man, it has a much darker feel and mystical elements. I will also tell you that I will never look at a black beetle again without getting the shivers! ...

    This is CJ Tudor's follow up novel to her brilliant debut The Chalk Man, and it is a fantastic macabre horror mystery featuring Joe Thorne, a has-been teacher whose gambling addiction has transpired to burden him with debts that he cannot afford to pay off to the scary and menacing Fat...

    Julia had a history of depression. She just had a divorce from Ben's father. She had stopped her medication and requested a leave of absence and took Ben out of school. Then she bludgeoned her son to death before she blew her own head off. She wrote three words in blood on the wall of ...

    Creepy with a hint of horror.... Joe Thorne returns to his hometown of Arnhill. A place he swore he would never return. And now, no one is exactly over-joyed to see him back in town. Joe is here looking for answers. His sister disappeared at the age of 8, and when she returned days ...

    One of my favorite things about The Chalk Man was the writing. And it?s equally good here, in The Hiding Place. It?s not often I find myself highlighting phrases in a mystery. But that?s exactly what I?ve done with both of Tudor?s books. Joe Thorne returns to his dismal...

    C. J. Tudor wrote The Chalk Man which I thoroughly enjoyed. Because of that I couldn?t wait for her next book. This one is just as good but in a very different way, more sinister, more creepy and definitely (on audio) it had its spine chilling moments. I crossed from reading...

    My thanks to Crown Publishing, Netgalley, and the author C.J. Tudor for the chance to read and review this e-book. Truth is that I despised Ms. Tudors first book-Chalk Men. I felt it was an obvious theft of quite a few Stephen King books. I still feel that way. Yet, I thought I saw som...

    There are no two ways around it - C.J. Tudor is a storyteller extraordinaire. She can write a terrifying tale, one that will burrow into the deepest recesses of your mind and have you frightened without being entirely sure why. It?s the creation of an overall atmosphere of fright and...

    First off, I want to say I don't want to miss anything C. J. Tudor writes. THE HIDING PLACE is her second novel just recently released and was just as good (for me) as her debut, THE CHALK MAN. "Arnhill is a grim little village where lots of bad things have happened." AND.....they're ...

    C. J. Tudor wrote The Chalk Man which I thoroughly enjoyed. Because of that I couldn?t wait for her next book. This one is just as good but in a very different way, more sinister, more creepy and definitely (on audio) it had its spine chilling moments. I crossed from reading...

    3.5 Stars rounded down to 3. Thank you to Crown Publishing who provided an advance reader copy via NetGalley. When I read author C.J. Tudor's debut novel "The Chalk Man" I was blown away by her "Stephen King-like" writing style, where I had noticed she incorporated some very simi...

    3.0 Stars? I noticed that many of my Goodreads friends had recently read ?The Hiding Place? and gave it favorable reviews so I decided to read C.J. Tudor for the first time myself. Tudor is an English author who wrote ?The Chalk Man? (which also got good reviews) so I really ...

    Having read C. J. Tudor?s first book, The Chalk Man, and really enjoying it I was quite looking forward to reading The Hiding Place. After finishing this one though this thriller just didn?t seem as thrilling to me as the first book. Joe Thorne never wanted to return to his home...

    Sooo?.my best advice before cracking the cover is take a deep breath. And prepare to be shoved into the deep end. If the prologue to this book doesn?t grab you, find a mirror. You might be in a coma. Initially Arnhill seems like a million other small towns. Slightly faded, noth...

    I really struggled with what to say in this review as I didn?t care for this one. Is it the author?s writing style? Is it the storyline itself? I think it?s a bit of both. After reading The Chalk Man, I was left with questions that were never answered directly. Instead the reader...

    "You didn't own this place. It might let you think so. Might even want you to think so. But that was how it got you. That was how it drew you down here. That was how it owned you." Get ready to be unnerved and on edge. The Hiding Place is coming for you! Oh my GAWWWDDD C.J Tudor...

    Two for two for C.J. Tudor! In January of last year, C.J. Tudor's debut, The Chalk Man ticked all the right spooky boxes, and earned a well-deserved 5 stars from me. So, you can imagine how much I was anticipating whatever Tudor penned next? And when the summary for The Taking of An...

    Having read C. J. Tudor?s first book, The Chalk Man, and really enjoying it I was quite looking forward to reading The Hiding Place. After finishing this one though this thriller just didn?t seem as thrilling to me as the first book. Joe Thorne never wanted to return to his home...

    Sooo?.my best advice before cracking the cover is take a deep breath. And prepare to be shoved into the deep end. If the prologue to this book doesn?t grab you, find a mirror. You might be in a coma. Initially Arnhill seems like a million other small towns. Slightly faded, noth...

    ***NOW AVAILABLE*** Well this one has taken me a bit of time to collect my thoughts. It is a quite a bit different from The Chalk Man, it has a much darker feel and mystical elements. I will also tell you that I will never look at a black beetle again without getting the shivers! ...

    One of my favorite things about The Chalk Man was the writing. And it?s equally good here, in The Hiding Place. It?s not often I find myself highlighting phrases in a mystery. But that?s exactly what I?ve done with both of Tudor?s books. Joe Thorne returns to his dismal...

    First off, I want to say I don't want to miss anything C. J. Tudor writes. THE HIDING PLACE is her second novel just recently released and was just as good (for me) as her debut, THE CHALK MAN. "Arnhill is a grim little village where lots of bad things have happened." AND.....they're ...

    C. J. Tudor wrote The Chalk Man which I thoroughly enjoyed. Because of that I couldn?t wait for her next book. This one is just as good but in a very different way, more sinister, more creepy and definitely (on audio) it had its spine chilling moments. I crossed from reading...

    Sooo?.my best advice before cracking the cover is take a deep breath. And prepare to be shoved into the deep end. If the prologue to this book doesn?t grab you, find a mirror. You might be in a coma. Initially Arnhill seems like a million other small towns. Slightly faded, noth...

    I really struggled with what to say in this review as I didn?t care for this one. Is it the author?s writing style? Is it the storyline itself? I think it?s a bit of both. After reading The Chalk Man, I was left with questions that were never answered directly. Instead the reader...

    "You didn't own this place. It might let you think so. Might even want you to think so. But that was how it got you. That was how it drew you down here. That was how it owned you." Get ready to be unnerved and on edge. The Hiding Place is coming for you! Oh my GAWWWDDD C.J Tudor...

    ***NOW AVAILABLE*** Well this one has taken me a bit of time to collect my thoughts. It is a quite a bit different from The Chalk Man, it has a much darker feel and mystical elements. I will also tell you that I will never look at a black beetle again without getting the shivers! ...

    One of my favorite things about The Chalk Man was the writing. And it?s equally good here, in The Hiding Place. It?s not often I find myself highlighting phrases in a mystery. But that?s exactly what I?ve done with both of Tudor?s books. Joe Thorne returns to his dismal...

    First off, I want to say I don't want to miss anything C. J. Tudor writes. THE HIDING PLACE is her second novel just recently released and was just as good (for me) as her debut, THE CHALK MAN. "Arnhill is a grim little village where lots of bad things have happened." AND.....they're ...

    C. J. Tudor wrote The Chalk Man which I thoroughly enjoyed. Because of that I couldn?t wait for her next book. This one is just as good but in a very different way, more sinister, more creepy and definitely (on audio) it had its spine chilling moments. I crossed from reading...

    This is better than other thrillers I?ve read lately but not spectacular. While the writing is solid the plot comes directly from a B horror film. A cheese-fest complete with skittering beetles. Spare me. I?ll chalk this up to thriller fatigue and return to reading the Churchill bi...

    3.0 Stars? I noticed that many of my Goodreads friends had recently read ?The Hiding Place? and gave it favorable reviews so I decided to read C.J. Tudor for the first time myself. Tudor is an English author who wrote ?The Chalk Man? (which also got good reviews) so I really ...

    One of my favorite things about The Chalk Man was the writing. And it?s equally good here, in The Hiding Place. It?s not often I find myself highlighting phrases in a mystery. But that?s exactly what I?ve done with both of Tudor?s books. Joe Thorne returns to his dismal...

    The unattainable....... Those things beyond reach in life, never designated as ours. Joe Thorne knows this wrong-end-of-the-stick phenomenon since the early days of his youth. The pieces of life's puzzle just don't seem to fit together. But something is drawing him back to his ho...

    3.25 Stars (rounded down) Dark and Foreboding. Joe Thorne grew up in Arnhill. He has no happy memories of his childhood and never thought he?d return to Arnhill yet here he is. He got a job at Arnhill Academy replacing Julia Morton, the teacher who shot herself and killed her o...

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, C.J. Tudor, and Crown Publishing for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. After the great success of her debut novel, C.J. Tudor returns with another psychological th...

    FIVE CREEPY STARS For reasons beyond my comprehension, some novels get renamed and re-covered in the U.S., losing their original U.K. title and identity. Personally, I feel the original title, THE TAKING OF ANNIE THORNE is much more intriguing than the vanilla bland THE HIDING PLACE...

    "The past isn't real. It is simply a story we tell ourselves. And sometimes, we lie." This is one of those books that you cover your eyes with your hand while still looking through the space between your fingers, saying no, no, no, not that. It can't be THAT! It only took me a...

    My thanks to Crown Publishing, Netgalley, and the author C.J. Tudor for the chance to read and review this e-book. Truth is that I despised Ms. Tudors first book-Chalk Men. I felt it was an obvious theft of quite a few Stephen King books. I still feel that way. Yet, I thought I saw som...

    There are no two ways around it - C.J. Tudor is a storyteller extraordinaire. She can write a terrifying tale, one that will burrow into the deepest recesses of your mind and have you frightened without being entirely sure why. It?s the creation of an overall atmosphere of fright and...

    This little nugget is my first book by C.J. Tudor, and I loved it! ? ? ? ? Joe attended Arnhill school as a child along with his many friends. He does not have good memories of his time there and vowed not to return because he left under difficult circumstances?including ...

    First off, I want to say I don't want to miss anything C. J. Tudor writes. THE HIDING PLACE is her second novel just recently released and was just as good (for me) as her debut, THE CHALK MAN. "Arnhill is a grim little village where lots of bad things have happened." AND.....they're ...

    C. J. Tudor wrote The Chalk Man which I thoroughly enjoyed. Because of that I couldn?t wait for her next book. This one is just as good but in a very different way, more sinister, more creepy and definitely (on audio) it had its spine chilling moments. I crossed from reading...

    3.5 Stars rounded down to 3. Thank you to Crown Publishing who provided an advance reader copy via NetGalley. When I read author C.J. Tudor's debut novel "The Chalk Man" I was blown away by her "Stephen King-like" writing style, where I had noticed she incorporated some very simi...

    This is better than other thrillers I?ve read lately but not spectacular. While the writing is solid the plot comes directly from a B horror film. A cheese-fest complete with skittering beetles. Spare me. I?ll chalk this up to thriller fatigue and return to reading the Churchill bi...

    3.0 Stars? I noticed that many of my Goodreads friends had recently read ?The Hiding Place? and gave it favorable reviews so I decided to read C.J. Tudor for the first time myself. Tudor is an English author who wrote ?The Chalk Man? (which also got good reviews) so I really ...

    Having read C. J. Tudor?s first book, The Chalk Man, and really enjoying it I was quite looking forward to reading The Hiding Place. After finishing this one though this thriller just didn?t seem as thrilling to me as the first book. Joe Thorne never wanted to return to his home...

    Sooo?.my best advice before cracking the cover is take a deep breath. And prepare to be shoved into the deep end. If the prologue to this book doesn?t grab you, find a mirror. You might be in a coma. Initially Arnhill seems like a million other small towns. Slightly faded, noth...

    I really struggled with what to say in this review as I didn?t care for this one. Is it the author?s writing style? Is it the storyline itself? I think it?s a bit of both. After reading The Chalk Man, I was left with questions that were never answered directly. Instead the reader...

    "You didn't own this place. It might let you think so. Might even want you to think so. But that was how it got you. That was how it drew you down here. That was how it owned you." Get ready to be unnerved and on edge. The Hiding Place is coming for you! Oh my GAWWWDDD C.J Tudor...

    Two for two for C.J. Tudor! In January of last year, C.J. Tudor's debut, The Chalk Man ticked all the right spooky boxes, and earned a well-deserved 5 stars from me. So, you can imagine how much I was anticipating whatever Tudor penned next? And when the summary for The Taking of An...
