Today, I’m excited to take part in the blog tour for Safe by S.K. Barnett. Thank you to Anne Cater from Random Things Tours and the publisher for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.

My Thoughts

This is the story of Jenny Kristal a six-year-old child who disappeared on her way to her friend’s house just a few doors away from her home. Twelve years later she is found walking the streets close to where she once lived. Now back in the folds of the family who love her, things should be better for Jenny…but are they?

Jenny is a likeable character with a heartbreaking story that is slowly revealed. At first, she is reluctant to talk about her kidnapping, later she reveals details which don’t seem to add up. This book differs from other missing children storylines because in this case, you feel from the start that Jenny’s ordeal is far from over.

Safe is an uncomfortable read due to the child abuse content, however, the story is gripping with plenty of twists and turns. This is a powerful thriller that is tense, thought-provoking but also heartwrenching and raw.
