Today I published a review of a sweet romance story. If you prefer your books to be much darker, read on for my second review of the day instead.
Safe by S.K. Barnett
A kidnapped girl survived twelve nightmarish years.
Now she’s safely back home . . . or is she?
Jenny Kristal was six years old when she was snatched off the sidewalk from her quiet suburban neighborhood. Twelve years later, she’s miraculously returned home after escaping her kidnappers—but as her parents and younger brother welcome her back, the questions begin to mount. Where has she been all these years? Why is she back now? And is home really the safest place for her . . . or for any of them?
The blurb for Safe doesn’t give away much. It can’t and it shouldn’t. The twists and turns of this book are so amazingly jaw-dropping that they shouldn’t be included in a blurb. You need to experience them for yourself. I didn’t see any of the twists coming and each one was better than the rest. To say I was kept on my toes throughout this entire book is an understatement.
Safe was one of the first books in a long time where I didn’t connect with any of the characters. I mean, it’s hard when you become suspicious of every character within the first few pages of meeting them. Now, that’s not to say that I immediately disliked them either. It was more so that they were vehicles to tell a great story. Usually, that wouldn’t happen to me and the absence of a connection for me would result in a lower rating of a book. However, the plot and story of Safe are so strong there is no way I could rate it anything less than five stars.
My pulse was pounding and my blood pressure was at scary levels as I puzzled through Safe. I had so many questions and, as each one was answered, a new turn was introduced, paving the way for a whole load more who, what, why and when. But I loved it. Every single page. If you are a big thriller fan you will love it too. I say this with my entire heart: get yourself a copy of Safe right now.
