Thank you for stopping by I'm thrilled to be one of the bloggers taking part in the blog blitz for Keep Her Safe by Richard Parker. You can catch my review today but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
How far would you go to protect your child?
Maggie’s daughter Penny is her whole world… and she’d do anything to protect her. So when Maggie wakes one night to find a strange woman in her home, she runs to lock herself in her bedroom with her child. But Maggie knows why she’s come…
Someone has been targeting mothers and offering them a choice: do as he says or their child disappears. This stranger in her home has until dawn to follow his orders… but Maggie too has the ‘choice’ to make. Can she put the pieces together to stop the cycle before her time is up?
An edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep you guessing until the last page. Perfect for fans of Adam Croft and Tess Gerritsen.
I have to start by saying that this was one of the first books I read in 2018 and wow what an impressive start to the year. I think I read this book in record time I just couldn't put it down well until a little thing called sleep got in the way. The opening had my heart beating so fast and it truly felt as if I was right there with Maggie through it all.
To call it nail biting is an understatement the pace is unrelenting which made for an exciting read. I have to admit to being on edge pretty much all the way through with no idea what would happen next. The not knowing really made the tension all the more greater. A complete edge of your seat experience from start to finish. My husband attempted to talk to me while I was reading and I really know that it's terrible to ignore him but I'm sorry this story demanded my full attention!
With short and snappy chapters guaranteed to have you turning the pages I was completely hooked on what I was reading. It is a full on experience seeing how everything plays out and if there would be any way out for the characters from this scary situation. It was thought provoking too especially if you are a parent making me question what would I do in the same situation.
You really are in for a treat when you pick this book up, intense is definitely the word I would use to describe this book. Along with brilliant and completely addictive!
Five stars from me!
