Book Description

May 2 2003 Teri Blake-Addison Mystery (Book 1)
Dr. Carl Houseman, celebrated minister and speaker, is determined to find out what really happened to his wife, declared dead five years ago after her sailboat washed ashore on a coastal island of Maine. Private investigator Terri Blake-Addison must piece together the life of this woman who felt she didn't know or understand the God that her husband so faithfully served. Did Ellen really die in those cold Atlantic waters? When a murder rocks the island, Terri knows more is at stake than just the puzzling life of an unhappy minister's wife.

Product Description

From Booklist

With Steal Away, Hall begins the Teri Blake-Addison mystery series, featuring the aforementioned Teri, a newly married PI whose requisite quirks are so mild they don't seem worth committing to paper. However, the case--whatever happened to the wife of a famous evangelist--is puzzling and absorbing to the end, and it results in a kind of examination of the dedicated religious life. So the series may march on, but Teri could do with a bit of jazzing up. John Mort

By Nancy
This was such a fun book to read! I was hooked from the first line. I like the fact that Ms. Hall uses some actual locations in her stories. This was a great mystery story and I'm looking forward to the next book of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars The First In A Great New Series by Linda Hall! July 1 2003
Like all of Linda Hall's mysteries, Steal Away is a wonderful story penned along uncharted territories of new and unknown paths that are trodden with intrigue and suspense-a weaving of twists and turns that nearly make you dizzy...nearly. Steal Away is peopled with believable personalities which communicate the complexities of life: love, guilt, shame, pain and sorrow, regrets, greed, betrayal, compassion and joy. Clues are dropped thoughtfully throughout the story. Thanks for a great read Linda, I look forward to the next installment!

By NB Gal
If you're looking for a mystery that you won't be able to put down, read Steal Away! Linda Hall's best book yet. This novel is complex, compelling, and the story is intricately woven into the lives of the exceptional characters Ms. Hall has created. The mystery will grab you and keep you guessing until the very satisfactory ending. Personalities spring to life throughout this book, each of them with their own set of problems and secrets, which build the escalating mystery to a fine pitch. This is the best book I've read in years. I can't wait for Ms. Hall's next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mystery Sept. 15 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a great story. It kept me intrigued so much I couldn't put it down. I never have been interested in reading mysteries before, but this one changed my mind. I will be looking for more of Linda Hall's books now. Wish she would write another one continuing the story of Ellen, Carl, and their son Brent. They seemed so real in the story that I want to know what happened next in their lives!
