    It was gripping, entertaining, weird, predictable but great choice to spend your time without thinking apocalyptic and horrifying news and getting rid of your daily paranoia by focusing on something crazier.The story s told by Emily, her boss Scott and his boss dear wife Nina Let s talk about Emily, in mid twenties, gullible, na ve, talkative, confused, friendl

    Emily s life is a mess Her employer offers her an opportunity far too good to be true and things go the way you think they willThis book was interesting and fun to read but unfortunately suffered from two shortcomings 1 A mostly predictable plot.2 An ending that offered resolution but ultimately felt unfinished and left me withquestions than answers.Thank you to Anna Do

    3.5interesting, a bit predictable I think I wanted a bit When Emily finds herself fired from her temp jobshe is at a loss for what to do Her acting career is not taking off, she is not close with her family, in fact she resents them Then her ex boss of all people offer her a job that seems too good to be true Okay Emily that is your first hinttoo good to be true, go with your gu

    3.5 starsI love the book cover design for this one as it practically begs you to read the book during the summer or while on vacation The story hooked me from the beginning because it had a creepy factor to it in which I wasn t entirely sure which direction the author was going to go because it felt like there were endless possibilities I do have some mixed feelings about the big reveal

    Emily Proudman s acting career has come to a standstill None of the auditions she s gone to have been successful and her agent is leaving for the US On top of that she s just lost her most recent job as a receptionist Her rent is overdue and without work she can t afford to stay in London but she also can t go home to the parents she s been neglecting But then she runs into her former boss, Scott

    The beautiful cover made me want to hop on a plane and go somewhere nice and tropical to read this book but that was not an option so I found a comfy chair in a warm room instead.I think I can safely say that the main character, Emily, needed help urgently To accept a job in France from someone she does not know, leave without telling anyone and then toss her phone as soon as she gets there and cease any

    A bit predictable, but a nice escape from worldwide pandemics nonethelessMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.

    A nicely done debut by Anna Downes 3.5 starsThe Safe Place kept me engaged throughout, and with one minor tweak which I ll mention below , this could be a truly outstanding novel Told almost entirely from Emily s point of view, there are also a few chapters told from Scott s perspective, as well as some sections from an unidentified voice I ll be honest, the unidentified sections fooled me I suspected something very differ

    Thank you NetGalley for giving me an eARC in exchange for an honest review.I don t really know how I felt about this, I saw all the incredible reviews and had high expectations Those expectations were not met, and I am disappointed I thought this was a very drawn out thriller, that you figure out very soon into the book I didn t have that, wow moment where my jaw drops open While the author did a great job at adding in very peculia

    Emily Proudman was destitute Her acting career was over before it had even begun She d lost her temping job as a receptionist The rent was behind again and the landlord had given her four weeks to get out And there was no one left who would lend her a couch to sleep on, or money to see her through She had no idea what she would do next That was, until Scott Denny, her old boss, offered her a job that was far too good to be true So much mone
