Someone took your daughter. And nobody believes you…
Three-year-old Ally was found alone in a parking lot.
She was barefoot and dressed only in a yellow sundress. In the middle of winter.
What kind of person would abandon their daughter?
Fifteen years later and Ally has a new family.
But her real father has sent her a letter.
And now Ally is missing.
A gripping twist-filled thriller that will have you looking over your shoulder. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Teresa Driscoll.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
I’ve read a few of Erik Therme’s books, and my favorite to this point was Resthaven. I can’t decide whether I like Keep Her Close or Resthaven better, but they are both definitely worth reading.
Keep Her Close grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept me interested throughout. After Ally was rescued years ago by Holly and Dan, they were able to adopt her. Even though they divorced a few years later, they’re still both good parents and they try to get along when it comes to Ally. When Ally goes missing, they work separately to find her but try to keep each other in the loop.
Every chapter seemed to have a new surprise, a new twist, a new clue to follow. I never knew what was going to happen next. I’ve always liked Erik Therme’s writing but the more he writes, the more I like it. His character development has improved a lot and I look forward to reading more of his stories.
