    Who kidnaps a whole nursery of children?

    Who would abduct children from a nursery and hold them hostage? This is what happens in this book. The police have a mad scramble trying to find clues as to where the children are, especially Liam, who has cystic fibrosis and no medicine. A really good read. Set over three days, and led by an officer who has been seeking her own daughter for a decade.

    Would Read More

    Who would kidnap 9 children? Well, one glaring detail told me at least part of the answer right from the beginning. I wish it hadn't, because I did enjoy the story. The secondary story, Anne's own missing daughter, was far more intriguing to me. I want to read more of that.

    Great start to a series

    When 9 children are abducted from a nursery, the race against time is on to get them back unharmed, but who is responsible for this daring plot? On the whole I enjoyed ‘In Safe Hands’ and it kept me engaged enough to read it all in one sitting. I really liked DCI Anna Tate and her backstory is very interesting. Usually police procedural main characters don’t have much of a plot of their own so as to make the novels standalone and not to scare away new readers who may pick the books up out of order. The cliffhanger at the end of In Safe Hands is fully related to Anna which I think is refreshing and has certainly made me want to pick up the next one to find out what happens next! I do have to criticise the story on the fact that it is a little predictable and easy to see where the plot is going to go. I actually guessed the main mastermind of the plot from a few chapters in which is unusual for me and this did ruin my enjoyment of it a little although there was lots of to keep me occupied throughout. I think the main problem in this is that there isn’t actually a large range of characters to focus on which narrows the pool of suspects down somewhat. The plot did also get a little repetitive at times which affected the pace but sped up nicely towards the end to an action packed finish. Overall In Safe Hands is a great start to a new detective thriller with a great main character, it was just a little predictable for me! Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
