The Safe Place by Anna Downes

Emily never could keep a job.

The day she was fired from the last job she had was definitely the start of something different.

Her old boss tracked her down and told her she was not fired and he had another position.

Emily couldn’t imagine what position Scott had for her, but it turned out to be unique and unbelievable.

Emily finds herself in a remote paradise with Scott’s wife and odd daughter.  There is no phone service or wi-fi, but her day's work and the beauty of the estate make up for the lack of both.

Something is very odd, though, and Emily still hasn't figured out what it is.  For one...why does Scott never visit or cancel his flights when it is time to visit?

Meanwhile, she decides to just enjoy until something happens.  And....things definitely happen.

THE SAFE PLACE keeps you turning the pages because you have no clue what's going on with the bizarre behavior of Nina and her daughter, Aurelia.

Just what did Emily get herself into?  Was this really a dream job?

THE SAFE PLACE has a slow buildup to a very riveting ending.

A great summer thriller you won’t want to miss.  5/5
