The Inn At Hidden Run By Olivia Newport

The Inn At Hidden Run By Olivia Newport

A Father-Daughter Genealogy Team Link Present to Past on Family Trees

Meri’s family has been producing doctors for so many generations that no one remembers why, so when she flunks out of medical school, she runs as far from her parents as she can get. In the small mountain town of Canyon Mines, Colorado, she takes a job at the Inn at Hidden Run B&B. And waits. It’s only a matter of time.

What she doesn’t count on is genealogist Jillian Parisi-Duffy and her father, Nolan, having her back when it takes everything she has not to bolt again but to stay and face the truth that only unfolding her family’s history will reveal. While Nolan works on keeping Meri calm—and in town—Jillian pulls out of her gems of information she doesn’t know she has and arranges the puzzle pieces.

But none of that changes the fact that Meri’s family is closing in to haul her back to her “real” life. When their arrival inflames tensions and Meri finally does bolt, Nolan and Jillian may be out of time.

The Inn at Hidden Run is the first book in the Tree of Life series. Readers will come back to backdrop of a lovely mountain town of Canyon Mines again and again to explore and celebrate unforgettable family stories that inspire them to connect with their own family histories and unique faith journey.

My Thoughts: 
The Inn at the Hidden Run is the first book in the Tree Life Series and I enjoyed reading this book. I found myself intrigued with the genealogy in this book, which made me want to learn more about my own.  The modern telling of Yellow Fever was very interesting, especially as the author weaved a dual storyline into this book. To be able to craft a dual timeline into a story and do it well, is writing craft and Olivia Newport did an amazing job! I recommend the read!
