Mount Hideaway Mysteries Review
In the town of Steven’s Mill, near a secret government facility named “Mount Hideaway”, four homeschooled Christian teenagers who participate in a forensic science co-op class, investigate the mystery of a catastrophic explosion and an elusive new investment company that may be trying to take over the town and shut-down the government facility.
This is the first book in a series of soon-to-come movies and books for Christian teens that enjoy action, adventure, thrill, and Jesus-centered themes. It might not be appropriate for younger kids and teens due to the fact that the story deals with multiple tragic situations and subjects; (murder, injuries, etc).
I enjoy that the book’s characters are well-rounded and full of emotion, pursue relationships with God, and that the story is never what you expect, having sudden plot twists and creating a story leaving you with a cliff-hanger.
I dislike that all of the main characters are 17+ and that there is only one main male character to follow throughout the entire story. I am not sexist and do appreciate the girl portions and characters, but this book is marketed to all teens, so another male character would have been more balanced.
