Hiders (Canaan Island #3)

By Meg Collett



Violet Relend is called the Ghost of Canaan Island because of her white hair and eerie eyes.

Though they mock her, Violet helps the citizens of Canaan with her family’s dwindling fortune. When she purchases a prosthetic for Arie Mendoza, a wounded soldier fresh from war, he insists on paying her back.

Wanting only to be left alone, Violet gives Arie a list of twelve impossible tasks. As she reluctantly gets to know him, the grip her fears and anxieties have on her loosens—until a developer threatens to have her crumbling, cliff-side house condemned. Violet will need more than Arie’s help to save her home. The entire town will have to rally around their Ghost.

If Violet doesn’t move fast enough, the walls of her carefully constructed life will fall in around her and drag her into the ocean’s depths.

This book is recommended for mature readers due to some sexual content and language. Each book in the Canaan Island series can be read as a stand-alone novel.


Hiders was such a surprising read, this was my favourite of the whole three books as it had such depth with the characters Arie and Violet. I knew Violets story would be hard but it was distressing at many times and Violet is so alone and it just broke my heart.

Arie and Violet had so many hurdles to overcome and can I say her list she prepared to move on  was such a smart move by the author as you would not have seen Violet do it any other way. Violet was such a strong and independent character who on one hand was incredibly stubborn but then so fragile.

Can I say again the one character that stands out in all three books to me is simply Stevie – she has such humour and an ability to envelope people into her inner circle.

The ending was a real surprise, it is not the sweet and nicely tied up HEA and upon reflecting it was perfect for these two souls, they were never going to have the easy ending that Kyra & Hale and Stevie & Cade got. These two characters had so much to prove and fight for – beautiful right to the end.

Quote: She lived her life alone for a reason. If she let no one in, no one could leave.
