    Keep Her Close by Erik Therme

    The little girl was 3 maybe 4 "Free to a good home written across the cardboard" A powerful start to Erik Therme's book Keep Her Close. Fast forward 15 years later and the little girl has grown and Dan and Holly had adopted her. What follows is a fast paced search for a missing Ally. The thought of a child missing is chilling and the book continues with an intense search for Ally. The book presents an interesting cast of characters woven together into a most disturbing scene of events. As with all Eric Therme's books I felt I was along for the ride. And what a ride it was.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Wow, what a great first book to read by Erik Therme. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to pick up a book of his. This definitely was on my to be read list for way too long. I can’t wait to read another book by him. This book is about a young woman who is seeking out the truth about her past. Ally was found wandering around many years early and was adopted into a very loving home. Then one day she receives a letter about the family she never knew. Of course she wanted to know more but knowing more leads to trouble. Where do I start about this book. First, I want to say what a great, fast, easy read it was. There was never a dull moment in the book. Every chapter was exciting and filled with so many twists and turns leaving the reader wanting more and more. I could hardly put it down. It also helped that the characters all were so likable and meshed so well with the story line. I especially liked Ally innocence. She was way too trusting which lead her into a very dangerous situation. But by the end she started being tougher and that got her out of the mess that she had created. The story line was awesome too. Who doesn’t like a story about finding out where you came from no matter the cost. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Disappointing

    This was a quick easy read and it started out being so good. By the half-way mark, it just seemed to jump around way too much with unlikable characters and went downhill from there for me. If felt really awkward trying to read about the main character Ally and her roommate Ellie especially with the two names used in the same sentence. I was disappointed in this book and I was glad when I finished it. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Many Twists & Turns

    Keep Her Close by Erik Therme Publisher: Bookouture Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Bookouture for the ebook ARC of Keep Her Close by Erik Therme in exchange for an honest review. Someone took your daughter. And nobody believes you… Then: Three-year-old Ally was found alone in a parking lot. She was barefoot and only dressed in a yellow sundress. In the middle of winter. What kind of person would abandon their daughter? Now: Fifteen year later and Ally has a new family. But her real father has sent her a letter. Ally doesn’t tell anyone she’s going to meet him. And now Ally is missing. I give this book a rating of 5 stars and I highly recommend reading it. This book was a fast paced thriller. Just when I thought I had it figured out, there was a twist that I didn’t see coming. The story was well written and many surprising twists and turns This is the first book I have read by Erik Therme and it definitely won’t be my last! #KeepHerClose #NetGalley

    A gripping read.

    Right from the get go this book grabs a hold of you and does not let go! The reader is thrown in straight away with a heart-wrenching prologue, where Ally is introduced under the most horrific circumstances as a small child who has been abandoned in a deserted parking garage at a shopping mall, standing on a cardboard sign with the words "Free to a Good Home" scrawled across it. If that doesn't make you reach out for the tissues, I don't know what will! Married couple Dan and Holly come across Ally, and cannot believe that someone could abandon their child. The story then picks up fifteen years later where we learn that Dan and Holly, who had been unable to have children of their own, had adopted Alley a year after they found her. All appears to be happily ever after. Ally is a well adjusted happy young adult now in college and loving life. But then she receives a letter from a man who claims to be her birth father. Curiosity peaked and with a need to find out about her past, Ally wants to go and meet him much to Dan's horror. Something does not feel right to him about it. Then Ally goes missing.... This is fundamentally a story of a parents love for their child, and how they will do whatever it takes to protect them. I can only imagine how parents of an adopted child must feel when that child chooses to take the path of finding their birth parents. The fear that they must feel at the possibility of losing them would be unbearable. Add to that now Ally has gone missing, this is a level of emotion that Holly and Dan have never experienced. Will they be able to get through it? There are a range of colourful characters in the book, that are all well written and developed, but the one that stood out for me above anyone else was Dan. He is a bit of a loose cannon with some anger management issues, but if you were to ever find yourself missing, then he is the man that you would want to be out looking for you. His love for Ally and his determination, with a never give up attitude, that he showed in the search for his daughter, I found very touching. Erik does a great job in making the reader feel all of the emotions that Dan felt, I found myself feeling just as desperate as Dan in the search for Ally. I really loved his character. I also really enjoyed Erik's writing style. He really knows this genre well, and does a great job at keeping the reader enthralled with just the right amount of suspense and intensity to keep you hooked. This is a fast paced, actioned packed, psychological thriller that was so full of twists and turns, that I was dizzy from them all! A great read that will have you on the edge of your seat, with an ending that I did not see coming! If this is how you like your books, then this is definitely for you.
