Making a Murderer meets Scandal in this story of police corruption, family secrets, and illicit affairs from bestselling author K.A. Tucker, celebrated for her “propulsive plot twists and searing seduction” (USA TODAY).
Noah Marshall has known a privileged and comfortable life thanks to his mother, the highly decorated chief of the Austin Police Department. But all that changes the night she reveals a skeleton that's been rattling in her closet for years, and succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family's life. Reeling with grief, Noah is forced to carry the burden of this shocking secret.
Gracie Richards wasn't born in a trailer park, but after fourteen years of learning how to survive in The Hollow, it's all she knows anymore. At least here people don't care that her dad was a corrupt Austin cop, murdered in a drug deal gone wrong. Here, she and her mother are just another family struggling to survive...until a man who clearly doesn't belong shows up on her doorstep.
Despite their differences, Noah and Gracie are searching for answers to the same questions, and together, they set out to uncover the truth about the Austin Police Department's dark and messy past. But the scandal that emerges is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined.
Complex, gritty, sexy, and thrilling, Keep Her Safe solidifies K.A. Tucker's reputation as one of today's most talented new voices in romantic suspense.
I Looooooved the mysterious element of this book, I was guessing until the very end. You get the key players but you rearrange the puzzle so many times that the picture isn’t clear until everything is spelled out. Well, at least for me, that’s how it unfolded. The only reason I don’t rate this a full five stars is due to the lack of romantic build up. I wasn’t really feeling that aspect. It was secondary to the story, sure, but it was kind of thrown together due to the situation and not actual feelings.
But other than the romantic aspect, the mystery, the suspense, the ball of tangled yarn that has to be pulled apart... KA Tucker delivered a strong and plausible storyline that left me full of WTFery before really understanding the depth of the plot.
I would have never guessed everything that happened in this story. I needed plot
points and lines going to and from the characters and settings to really see what was happening in the story.
If you love a good mystery, you NEED this book. If you love KA Tucker, you already have this book or preordered it, it is that simple!
