given her four weeks to get out And there was no one left who would lend her a couch to sleep on, or money to see her through She had no idea what she would do next That was, until Scott Denny, her old boss, offered her a job that was far too good to be true So much money, and to just be a companion to his wife, and help care for his daughter in France Absolutely.Nina was incredibly beautiful, and her six year old daughter was sweet She had a medical issue so it would take Emily time to get close to her but the estate was divine She lived in the guesthouse not far from the main house Everything was perfect until it wasn t Completely isolated, no internet or phone the uneasiness slid up and down Emily s spine She knew deep down there was something wrong but what The Safe Place by Aussie author Anna Downes was one I was really looking forward to Her debut novel, with an enticing cover and a blurb that promised chills But I was disappointed The storyline was choppy, the plot a little predictable Emily oh Emily Have you not heard the saying if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is Na ve, gullible but she finally found some sense Recommended to fans of the genre.With thanks to Affirm Press and NetGalley for my ARC to read in exchange for an honest review It was gripping, entertaining, weird, predictable but great choice to spend your time without thinking apocalyptic and horrifying news and getting rid of your daily paranoia by focusing on something crazier.The story s told by Emily, her boss Scott and his boss dear wife Nina Let s talk about Emily, in mid twenties, gullible, na ve, talkative, confused, friendly, suffering from her wrong life choices, having problematic relationship with her parents finally when she decides to call her mother It was gripping, entertaining, weird, predictable but great choice to spend your time without thinking apocalyptic and horrifying news and getting rid of your daily paranoia by focusing on something crazier.The story s told by Emily, her boss Scott and his boss dear wife Nina Let s talk about Emily, in mid twenties, gullible, na ve, talkative, confused, friendly, suffering from her wrong life choices, having problematic relationship with her parents finally when she decides to call her mother to get a loan she finds out that was her mother s birthday and her mother dearest normally expected her to call to congratulate her after a long time Yes Emily, you suck Now she s sacked from receptionist job and lost her acting agent, her rent check is bounced and she has no income, is so close to get evicted and suffering from starvation But she has no idea, somebody orchestrated everything about her financial failure and watches her every move like a hunter coming out for his prey We re talking about wealthy charismatic CEO Scott, Emily s ex boss who decided her termination, coincidentally saved her from crushed by a boss when he was passing by the very same street she walked He acts like he has no idea about her termination and he wants to compensate his fault by offering her a new job she s going to be housekeeper landscaper, lawnmower, nanny, painter, cook etc of his mansion in France Emily hesitates at first but later she decides she has nothing to lose so she takes the deal Scott acts like he s working on crazy scheme which made me think he may be a cult leader and he sent Emily to be sacrificed at his mansion It could beinteresting plot but unfortunately the conclusion of the story was easy to predict We get snippets from Scott and Nina s marriage, having children and we understand that Nina suffers from mental illness and she is over protective mother When Emily takes her first step to the grandiose but also eerie mansion, she meets with perfect and ghostly wife Nina, building a friendship with her even though she is a little jealous because she might have a crush of her boss But she gets a little startled after meeting Aurelia, shy, introvert little girl, suffering from skin disease, keeping her silence all the time, showing awkward reactions when Emily accidentally touches her Something seems fishy and suspicious about the girl s condition but Emily didn t want to dig aroundbecause she adapts in her new life and she gets used to the antics of mother and daughter But when Scott decides to visit trio, Emily s suspicions grow faster and when she visits Nina s part of the house even though she s forbidden to go there, the things she finds out confuses the hell of her And let s not forget her attraction to her boss makes thingscomplicated Overall It s foreseeable but fast, enjoyable reading with weird relationship dynamics between characters So I m rounding up 3.5 stars to 4 Without expecting too much, questioning the characters motives deeply, you may entertain your time with its moving and fast pacing.Special thanks to NetGalley and Minotaur Books St Martin s Press for sharing this intriguing ARC with me in
