FTC FYI: I received a copy from the author/publisher. All views and opinions expressed are my own.
As a victim’s advocate, Grace James is used to rushing into trouble to save her victims from abuse or assault. And with a handsome officer like Joe Hart at her side, Grace is sure there’s nothing she can’t do. But an ominous storm brewing on the Oregon horizon is about to change everything—and bring with it dangers and revelations Grace and Joe never expected.
The author does a great job of portraying the horrors of abuse. This is definitely a book that I would not normally pick up because of the subject matter, but the author wrote it well. Grace was a fantastic character, who truly wanted to help people. I did feel there was too much jumping around between so many characters. That being said, it was interesting to see the POV of the abusers and the different types of abuse caused from drinking and viewing pornographic images but again, too many POV jumps between every character. The LDS church is referenced and it was a definite help for the characters but I thought the many references of CTR was overdone. The ending was good, but felt rushed and I felt there were things were not resolved.
3 1/2 stars. The ebook of Safe House is $0.99 on Amazon.
