The Safe Place Review

The Safe Place


November 9, 2021

Crime - Thriller


Jessie is an outcast in the small town of Eagle Falls. Apparently, accusing the town’s golden boy of domestic abuse will do that. So, when a slew of house fires occurs, killing the families stuck inside, Jessie quickly becomes the prime suspect. Befriending a former FBI agent new to the town, Jessie and Ruth start their own investigation. Will Jessie be able to prove her innocence or will the people of Eagle Falls let Jessie burn?

Buckle up and hold on tight as L.A. Larkin takes “never give up” to the next level in her book The Safe Place. A gripping ride from the first sentence to the last, one easily gets caught in the web of chaos that is Jessie’s life.

Yet, the amount of profanity utilized was somewhat of a deterrent. A perfect score could have easily been awarded if the profanity was eliminated or reduced. But given the scoring template used, a rating of 4 out of 5 stars is the result.

Please note, this is not a tale for the faint of heart as there are numerous mentions of heinous crimes. A bit of warning if any of these actions may cause distress: physical abuse, heroin use, overdose, toxic brain injury, epilepsy, sexual harassment, car accident, murder, arson, breast cancer, miscarriage, anti-Semitism, rape, Parkinson’s, and gun violence.

If women that never stop fighting for what is right is up your alley, then this book is for you. Make sure to add this to your To Be Read (TBR) pile when it releases on November 9, 2021, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you to #NetGalley, #TheSafePlace, #LALarkin, and #Bookouture for the opportunity to read this book and give my honest review.
