When I started reading this book I felt like I was missing something and after some investigation I discovered this is the 2nd book in the Jessie Blake series. With that being said the book was good. So many surprises, just when you think you might have it figured out you’re totally wrong. After reading a chunk of the book I was questioning why certain characters were involved and I shouldn’t have because the author tied them all in beautifully and everyone had their own important role. 
The storyline of a missing baby who is then found dead is horrible subject matter it rips your heart out but the how and why are totally shocking. 
I enjoyed the characters but as mentioned above I felt like I was missing certain information pertaining to Jessie and after finding out this was the 2nd book it made sense. I will definitely be going back to read the first book. While this book evokes heartbreaking emotions it is well written and enjoyable despite the subject matter.
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC for an honest review.

Gripping storyline. I have never read this author before but would definitely read her next book. Good premise well executed. Plenty of twists and turns along the way. Fast paced thriller. What’s not to like. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to review it.

Baby Finlay is missing and Detective Jessie Blake is determined to find out what happened to him. 

There are a lot of characters in this book, which makes it difficult to keep track of who is actually important to the story. I found it overly complicated in places, especially trying to keep the back stories of every character in place! I love thrillers and mysteries, but I felt this one was woolly and confusing rather than exciting and suspenseful.

That said, I did enjoy the premise of the story and I felt the conclusion was satisfactory. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for my copy of this book.

Thank you for the advanced copy of this book. I really enjoyed this and I couldn’t put it down until I’d found out exactly what had happened to Finlay. Very well written and full of the expected twists. I did guess the culprit (s) early on but I like it when that happens. I think Jessie would make a good character for a series so I’m hoping to see more from her in the future!

Another new author for me and I was very impressed with this book. It’s a very fast paced read that gripped me from the first page. A creepy thriller that kept me wanting to read late into the night. I like the shorter chapters and the main character. Plenty of secrets that I just wanted to uncover. A great thriller I really enjoyed. I will look to read more by this author.

I am not fully functioning at work today, as I stayed up very late last night to finish this book.  The book starts off with the disappearance of a young baby boy.  Who is guilty, his mother that is suffering from post natal depression, or the next door neighbor, who is still recovering from the death of her own baby.   The investigation of the baby's disappearance was gripping, and at the end, the explanation of it all (no spoilers, I promise) was mind-blowing.  This is one of my new favorite writers, I can't wait to see more from her pen! 
Highly recommended.

Safe Home by author Kerry Watts is a super fast paced crime thriller that does not disappoint! Full of dark secrets and twists with a spot on main character. I loved the short chapters in this novel, it definitely worked for it! 

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Safe Home is a extremely fast paced thriller that will leave you wanting more! Full of dark secrets you will stay up late into the night to finish this book!

My only complaint is the short chapters made it difficult to connect with characters, I struggled to keep up with who everyone was.

4/5
