Book Blitz: Keep Her Safe by Richard Parker
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.
The question of what you would do to protect your child is of of the scariest, I am sure, any parent could ask themselves. In Richard Parker's latest book, Keep Her Safe that is just what Maggie has to face. She has to do what a menacing intruder demands, or else her child will disappear. The premise is so scary, and I was immediately sucked into the story. It moves quickly and I really felt for Maggie and the decision she had to make. That being said, I didn't feel she was as developed as she might have been. Though the plot kept moving fast and I was curious to the very end, I think it would have been an even better read had there been a little more time given to character development and some of the twists maybe even toned down a hint. That being said, Keep Her Safe is still a gripping thriller and another hit from one of my favorite publishers.
