When Emily loses her job, apartment, and agent on the same day, it seems like a miracle when Scott offers her an incredible job to care for his family at his remote French estate. Emily can't believe it because it's almost too good to be true! Emily quick learns that something is amiss at this estate.

The idyllic setting of The Safe Place makes you almost want Emily to ignore her feelings that something is amiss to stay in it a little longer. Needless to say, there is something wrong. Every time I thought I figured out what was going on, something unexpected would happen. I liked that the narrative is told from different perspectives because it heightens the suspense throughout the novel.

I recommend The Safe Place to someone who is looking for an engrossing summer thriller or someone who wants to escape to a beautiful location for a few hours (for better or worse!).
