Publisher's Summary

Making a Murderer meets Scandal in this story of police corruption, family secrets, and illicit affairs from best-selling 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 14 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.

The end will Blow You Away!!!!

This book is absolutely fantastic. It's a police story that includes friendship, betrayal and redemption.
Noah Marshall grew up believing the man he idolized in his youth was killed 14 years ago because he was a corrupt cop.
When his mother commits suicide she leaves him a letter saying that her partner (Abe) was innocent and a gym bag containing $98K. She left instructions to bring the money to Abe's widow and daughter, she says they need it. But where did this money come from? Was his mother involved in what happened to Abe? Noah finds them living in a trailer park. Abe's widow is addicted to heroine and his daughter Grace works at a fast food joint. This is so far from the life they had been living. Now their lives are in danger. Some people are afraid of the story these three could put together if all the pieces start getting put together.
What spirals from that is such a complex tale with multiple characters involved in murders, a cover up, threats and corruption at the highest levels.
The multiple narrators do a wonderful job.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I love a good romantic suspense but I think this book is more suspense than romance. This was a police procedural suspense that flashing between the past and the present. We get the POV of 4 characters, the Police Chief, her son, a dead police officer who died labelled crooked cop and his daughter. In the present we have Noah & Gracie who are trying to figure out what happened 14 years when their parents were friends and co-workers. In the past we get pieces of the story from both parents. While Noah and Gracie are trying to find out the truth they help each other and end up falling for each other. I enjoyed how this book had so much going on at all times.

I really enjoyed all the narrators, they really made the multiple POV's easy to follow.

Enjoyed the location!

I live in Austin and love to read stories using it as the backdrop. This author captures many Austin eateries, neighborhoods, traditions and expressions while weaving her mystery. Pretty good job, for someone not from here.

LOVED IT! OMG!!

This story was great! Kept me listening from beginning to the very end. Tons of twists, a little bit of romance, mystery and a whole lot of corruption. I am extremely picky, it takes a really good book for me to get through it and this one did it. I drive for a living and I couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel to listen to this book. Well worth the credit!

Meh

First, the voice actors were one trick ponies. They basically sounded the same for every character.
Actor for Abe : did not change voice for any other part (male or female). I couldn't tell who was speaking in the dialogue parts.
Noah: his woman voice is the same for everyone, which is an old woman in a rocker voice. Doesn't matter if it's a 20 year old Gracie, or his not-so-old mother. They both sound 80 and decrepit.
Gracie: same voice and voice patterns for each character.

It was just poor.

The story was mediocre, unnecessarily drawn out, and hard to listen to.
Writing was also mediciore... the things these people would say in their dialogues were so bland and "filler" words.

I wouldn't waste your time on this one.

Good, but very light on the romance

The story was interesting...lagging at times, but good. I love a slow burn romance, but there was no chemistry b/w the H&h and it was not even close to the focal point of this book. The narration was okay...I didn't like either female narrator, but the males were very good with the male parts...not fabulous with the female parts.

Narration kind of ruined this story

What disappointed you about Keep Her Safe?

Mostly the narration did not match the characters. The girl characters are suppose to be from Texas and Robin Eller's ( nothing against her voice ) voice did not sound right at all she enunciates words perfectly but has a city girl vibe to it and does not go with the characters. One of them is supposedly on the Herion drug but way to fast talking for someone in that state. This was someone who supposedly was in a state of Herion apathy as the story's character was written.
On top of that the male voice was way too soft speaking for the male characters and sounded silly and not right for the girl characters.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

That is a personal opinion choice thing. But I did so love her saving water series of 4 novels that each one of the stories connected but took one on a crazy fun adventure all in different locations I have listened to them all more than once.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

I think Sebastian York would been matched up well. Don't know for the girl narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Just not for me compared to the k a tucker's saving water series, this was flat and more serious or something there were no real surprises or creative twists.
I feel that is a personal thing and would not take seriously my take on the actual story to each his own. Again just the narration killed it for me.

Any additional comments?

I believe to each his own opinion on a story and what one enjoys about it. I like surprises on a story and a little more upbeat.

need to LOVE

Human beings, we know, are born with an innate need to be loved. In certain Newborn Intensive Care Units, for example, volunteers come at scheduled intervals to hold the tiny preemies in their cupped hands, singing and speaking tender words to them. All the vital signs on their hospital monitors show marked improvement after these babies have been touched, held, treasured, and loved. Although they’re virtually unable to know what’s happening to them, love still comes through ...into their hearts and makes a tangible difference.
But not only has God created us with a need for love; He also has created us with a capacity for love—a supernatural, God-given ability to love others. Even inside those relationships of yours that have become the most difficult, where the risk and pain they cause can often feel like more than you can handle, God has given you a spirit of love, not fear. You can keep moving toward them, not worrying if it will cost you more than God will repay. There is nothing happening relationally in your life that love cannot overcome and conquer, through the love that God gives you.
