Publisher Description

Making a Murderer meets Scandal in this story of police corruption, family secrets, and illicit affairs from bestselling 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 fourteen 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.

Police corruption

Keep Her Safe is a story about police department corruption. A fourteen year old cold case is hidden to protect the department. Noah and Gracie suffer the fallout of the lies being kept by a corrupt police department. Noah and Gracie only have each other to count as they search for the truth wanting justice for Abe.
Noah is the son of a well respected decorated police chief. His mother Commander Jackie Marshall worked her way into the ranks of a high profile leader in the police department. Fourteen years ago his mother changed. She began drinking to the point of passing out on a regular basis. Something heavy was weighing her down.
Gracie is the daughter of a well respected officer. Officer Abraham Wilkes is a good man and a good cop.

Chief Canning noticed a big problem with the drugs coming into Austin with Austin being a hundred miles away from Mexico decided to assign officers to a narcotics field unit. But then a new chief took office shutting down the teams due to budget cuts. That’s when a patrol officer began reselling the drugs he stole from the dealers. Not long after, Abraham Wilkes turns up dead in a motel room with Hernandez.

The timeline alternates between 2017 (the present) and 2003 (the past) with Noah and Grace alternating points of view.
There were several components that made up this storyline. The delivery of information was certainly not the issue. With the help of Officer Abraham Wilkes and Commander Jackie Marshall providing detailed information about what transpired back in 2003 it helped assist in connecting the pieces.
I was super excited to read a romantic suspense by Ms. Tucker. She is extremely thoroughal in her character development as well as setting up the concept.
Ms. Tucker lives in Canada yet she writes a believable story about the Austin Police Department in Texas. Her knowledge about drug dealers and police corruption was pretty accurate.
Ms. Tucker set off to create a romantic suspense. But first she built a compelling story about police corruption with secondary romantic scenes. I liked that the romance easily blended into the storyline it wasn’t forced nor did it take away from the concept. The suspense comes from the police activity that happened in 2003 which is explained in past scenes. Of course, once everything begins to unfold the story comes alive with all the nasty secrets and lies of a true coverup. I loved all the interwoven pieces of this concept and the way Ms. Tucker delivered them.
Eventhough I loved the concept and the delivery of the concept I still struggled with certain aspects of her storytelling. There were so many scenes were the details were too extensive.

There are four narrators performing Keep Her Safe. Each narrator performed the scenes laid out before them with great voice skills.
This is an unabridged duet with multiple narrators. I am certainly glad I had these narrators to get me through Keep Her Safe. With the four different points of view it helped have a distinguished separation of voice talents performing these characters.
The audiobook was performed in a professional sound proof studio offering high quality sound. The scenes were performed word perfectly.
Narrators included: Will Damron, Robin Eller, Roger Casey, and Wendy Tremont King.

I loved it

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Keep Her Safe will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end.

Noah’s life changes in an instant. But what lies beneath the surface is the truth, and it’s up to him to find it. He’s thrust into a world he doesn’t understand or in a way he doesn’t want to believe.

Seriously, is there anything that Tucker can’t write? She made this thrilling, suspenseful story that had so many twists and so many turns. I wasn’t even sure what was going to happen until the end. It’s an example of brilliant storytelling. I love when I can’t guess what will happen. In this review, I won’t be telling you what happens. Just telling you that you have to read it. I couldn’t put it down.

I give this obviously, Five Boundless Stars and more if I could
