A huge thank you to Penguin Random House for this advanced copy. It has been an absolutely gripping read that I haven’t been able to put down.
He’s been looking in the windows again. Messing with cameras. Leaving notes.
Supposed to be a refuge. But death got inside.
When Katie Straw’s body is pulled from the waters of the local suicide spot, the police decide it’s an open-and-shut case. A standard-issue female suicide.
But the residents of Widringham women’s refuge where Katie worked don’t agree. They say it’s murder.
Will you listen to them?
An addictive literary page-turner about a crime as shocking as it is commonplace, Keeper will leave you reeling long after the final page is turned.
I’m not going to give away any spoilers in this review, if you want to find out what happened to Katie- pre order this book now.
This book has gripped me from the very beginning and it has been impossible to put it down. I have been utterly desperate to find out what exactly had happened in this book.
This is a wonderful debut novel and I have real high hopes for Jessica Moor, I am already eager to read more by this author.
This is told from many points of view and has a strong theme of domestic violence throughout the book. This has been tackled in an extremely sensitive but realistic way.
Jessica Moor has included the realistic aspect of how families and individuals are effected by domestic violence. Throughout the book, we find that Katie becomes controlled and anxious after Jamie begins to control her. Moor has also included the issue of budget cuts and how these may affect the victims involved.
I have been completely and utterly gripped by this book. Jessica Moor has pulled me into the pages and I have finished this book in just a few hours. I cannot wait to see what else the future holds for this author after this absolutely fantastic debut book.
This is an easy five star rating. Any author who can keep me engaged to read in one sitting is truly talented.
A huge thank you go Penguin Random House for the advanced copy of this book.
Lots of love
