Keep Her Safe

The Short of It:
Started off pretty well but lost steam about half way through.
The Rest of It:
Pushed to the breaking point, Cara Burrows flees her home and family and escapes to a five-star spa resort she can’t afford. Late at night, exhausted and desperate, she lets herself into her hotel room and is shocked to find it already occupied — by a man and a teenage girl.
A simple mistake at the front desk… but soon Cara realizes that the girl she saw alive and well in the hotel room is someone she can’t possibly have seen: the most famous murder victim in the country, Melody Chapa, whose parents are serving natural life sentences for her murder. ~ Indiebound
Keep Her Safe completely fell apart for me. I had to push myself to finish it and that is never good. The story was ridiculous. The characters were underdeveloped and annoying. Everyone spends their time running around, sticking their noses into other people’s business and there is no suspense whatsoever.
In case it’s not clear, I can’t recommend this one. I finished it, thinking that maybe in the end, it would all come together in some reasonable way, but I was wrong.
