The Safe Place, by Anna Downes

Welcome to France, and, no doubt, to your next summer read! (Out July 14th.)

It took me forever to find the time to dive into this amazing novel and I apologize to the publisher who kindly granted me access to the advance copy. HOWEVER, once I was properly hooked, a couple of chapters in, I just couldn’t put it down. THE SAFE PLACE is a stunning debut, full of mystery and heartbreak. You just have no clue what’s really going on and what’s happening next, although all the details point in a very certain direction to help you figure it all out.

Very likable, well drawn characters, well executed story and well written.

Thanks again to the publisher and Netgalley.
