Earlier this year, I read my first K.A. Tucker novel Until it Fades. I absolutely loved it, and immediately added all of Tucker’s backlist to my to-be-read list (my full review here!). If you aren’t familiar with her work, she writes a wide range of genres; from romance to fantasy to mystery, young adult to adult, Tucker is a versatile and talented writer.
Her next book, Keep Her Safe, is slated to release January 23, 2018 and I cannot wait! It is a mix between a suspense novel and a romance, and it sounds so freaking good. Below is a synopsis, along with the beautiful cover! Keep scrolling for a link to USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog which has an exclusive excerpt of the book.
Keep Her Safe by K.A. Tucker
Publisher: Atria Books
Release Date: January 23, 2018
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…
