The Safe Place

Book: The Safe Place
Author: Anna Downes

Emily is a mess.

Emily Proudman just lost her acting agent, her job, and her apartment in one miserable day.

Emily is desperate.

Scott Denny, a successful and charismatic CEO, has a problem that neither his business acumen nor vast wealth can fix. Until he meets Emily.

Emily is perfect.

Scott offers Emily a summer job as a housekeeper on his remote, beautiful French estate. Enchanted by his lovely wife Nina, and his eccentric young daughter, Aurelia, Emily falls headlong into this oasis of wine-soaked days by the pool. But soon Emily realizes that Scott and Nina are hiding dangerous secrets, and if she doesn't play along, the consequences could be deadly.-Goodreads

Review: If you are looking for a quick read for the holidays, look no further. The Safe Place is a quick, interesting read if not a tad predictable. But it's fun and Downes knows how to craft a good story. 

Emily is a hot mess. Out of work. Out of money. About to be evicted. Dropped from her acting agent. Estranged from her parents. Can't even remember her own mother's birthday. So of course she jumps at the opportunity to move to France and take a job as a housekeeper for her old bosses wife and young child. Emily quickly discovers things aren't what they seem. 

Fun read I liked it. 

Grade: 3/5
