About The Book

Someone is hurting the most vulnerable person in your life, but they can’t tell you who it is. What would you do?
When shy publisher Kate Kinley finds mysterious bruises on her mother’s arms she assumes the worst. Suffering with early onset dementia, her mother insists that nothing is wrong; it was just a clumsy accident. But was it an accident, or has her mother’s illness made her forget what really happened?
In desperate need of someone she can trust, her isolation and paranoia grow as the closest people in her life become key suspects.
With each heart-stopping revelation, Kate begins to realise that the perpetrator is no longer interested in inflicting bruises; they want blood.
Keep Me Close is a compelling story of gross immorality, a cautionary tale of how easily wicked people can take advantage of the vulnerable elderly people in your life.


My Thoughts

This is a book that will keep you guessing till the end; the tension and fear for the main character’s life it makes the book impossible to put down.
Let’s start from the beginning, Kate Kinley is not a very brave woman, she has lost so many people around her that she’s scared to live and be loved. She really cares for her mother who has early onset dementia, but her life is not easy, working as an editor with a horrible boss makes her days stressed and almost depressed. Everything will change when she meets an old friend, literally, her life will change forever, for the worst.
This is one of those stories where you can’t trust anyone; who would want to threat Kate’s life? The new boyfriend, the new carer of her mother or the “old friend” accountant? Really, there are so many suspects and threatening situations that I even thought that they were all three working together! Of course I’ll not reveal anything, just to advise you that you can trust no one!
I know that Kate seems a little bit lost and vulnerable, but I think if I was in her skin I would be the same. Losing her father, brother and boyfriend doesn’t have to be easy; then taking care of her mother and a bully boss. Believe me, even the most brave person would be tired of fighting, it’s time for her to breath a little, don’t you think? I’ll admit that I read this book in one sit, easy to enter the story but impossible to leave it alone!
If you are looking for a non-sleep night read, you should start reading this book, you’ll love it!
