No Safe Place by Mary Head is a good story and the plot and characters kept me going, I thought it had a lot of the same FBI daughter gets kidnapped vibe. But...the story did keep me reading so there is that. I gave it a 3 1/2 rounding it up to 4 stars.

“If this ends badly, I don’t know what I’ll do.”

This was an adult contemporary suspense story about a girl who was kidnapped.

Hannah was an okay character, and I felt sorry for her in the way she was kidnapped and had no idea why, especially when she didn’t know what her kidnappers wanted from her.

The storyline in this was about Hannah being kidnapped in relation to a case that her father (an FBI agent) had worked on, with the question being whether heScout.)

(I also received a free copy of this book for nominating it, thanks to Kindle Scout. I figured everyone else was saying, so, peer pressure. Aaaaanyway…)

In some ways, No Safe Place, is a lot like other books in this genre. There’s a kidnapping, a race to save the victim of said kidnapping (Hannah Cole, in this case), and a slow unveiling of the motives for the crime as Hannah struggles to survive her ordeal. But, at the same time, it’s also unlike a lot of other novels in the genre. W

I received a copy of this book pre-release after nominating it for publication through Kindle Scout.

No Safe Place is night and day from The Only One, Mary Head's debut novel.

Whereas one was a romance that bucked many of that genre's conventions, No Safe Place is a fast-paced thriller in which graduate student Hannah Cole is taken from her own home -- leaving her FBI agent father David and his team to put the pieces together in a race against the clock.

No Safe Place is a thoroughly entertaining novel with perfect tension and excellent character development. The writing is tight and the pacing keeps you moving through the story. It's the kind of book where you keep saying "I'll just read one more chapter" until next thing you know it's 2 in the morning! One of the best things about this novel is the relationships between the characters and how pivotal these connections are to the plot. Every pairing has depth and complexity, and there is someth ...more

Great storyteller.

The story grips you, keeps you held on, and makes you want to read chapter after chapter. The rating would have been a 5 star rating if it wasn't the use of repetitive words or phrases over and over. Murmured was used too many times to be annoying and eyebrows stitched together was used several times. Other than that, you get hooked pretty easily, characters blend well, and page Turner that must be read!

I accepted long ago that there's no such thing as the perfect book in my eyes and every book has it's issues. It's a rule I go into each book remembering and No Safe Place is not an exception to this rule. The main character, Hannah, is overwhelmingly 'perfect' and well liked by everyone to the point where it almost makes me roll my eyes and there are times that her father is downright unlikable and I do feel that the book focused too much on Eli's attraction to her than her friendship with her ...more

Hannah was raised by her father, David Cole, who was an FBI agent. He had taught her how to fight and look after herself so when she got kidnapped by one of David's enemies, she wasn't a weak, damsel in distress type woman but looked for any chance to fight or get away from her captors. While Hannah was trying to survive this frightening ordeal, many FBI agents were trying to find her, including her father, even though he wasn't supposed to have anything to do with the case.

This was an enjoyable story. Although the plot was similar to many FBI kidnapping stories, it kept me reading. The characters were likable, sometimes too much so that they didn't always feel realistic. For one, Hannah was everyone's sweetheart, and another, I would have expected Chris to be more angry when Hannah likes Eli, and not give up so easily. It's told from many perspectives, which is good and bad. It gives you more depth to the story, but also takes away some of the suspense about what ...more

Hannah's Journey

Love, love, love this book! The plot line is intriguing, the characters are real, and this book is a page turner throughout! Hannah handles her situation with courage and tenacity. Can't wait to read the next one!

I received an early copy for nominating it on Kindle Scout.

Well, that was intense.

It kicks off with a very suspenseful tone as Hannah is being watched from the shadows. The suspense gives way to our introduction of Hannah's relationship with her father and her meeting with Eli, a new FBI agent. Originally, it wasn't my favorite choice but it worked. When Hannah is abducted, her father and fellow FBI agents take over the search for her (even though her father isn't supposed to be i

The suspenseful story is about Hannah's kidnapping, and her father David's extraordinary efforts to save her.

I like Ms. Head's idea ... Gary Oldman and Dianna Agron should play Hannah and David when the movie is produced.

There's a great except from Ms. Head's next book, Finding Home Again, at the end of the book.
