My review:

Safe Harbor is a captivating book to read, once you have read the first pages, you are intrigued and want to know what is going to happen. This book is not only a mystery, but it touched so many other important topics like betrayal, protecting your family, human trafficking, international crime - it affects you on many different levels. Safe Harbor is well written, has an interesting plot and very enjoyable characters.

Regarding the plot:

Safe Harbor introduces you to a financial advisor Pat Tierney, who has a safe life: she has well-paid job, comfortable home and nice and quiet family life. It is all being changed when one day in the office she meets Jude. Jude is a young woman who reveals to Pat, that the little seven-year old boy is the son of Pat's recently died husband. It seems that Jude is concerned about the safety of her and her son's life and leaves Tommy at Pat's office promising to come back for her son after the threat is gone.

After that meeting everything changes for Pat, her life is turned upside down. Firstly, she is shocked and heart broken by the fact that her husband cheated on her and now needs to gather the pieces of a very hurtful knowledge. Besides that, Jude is found murdered and Pat also needs to take care of her husband's son whom she had no idea even existed.

Pat needs to make lot of quick and difficult decisions and since the threat for her own family and for Tommy is coming closer, she starts investigating why and who killed Jude and who are the persons behind wanting to kill Tommy. With persistent approach she is coming step by step closer to the killers and to the truth and it all points towards the refugee home Safe Harbor.

I really enjoyed the story!

Pat Tierney, a financial advisor used to solving her clients' problems, faces trouble of her own when she comes face to face with her late husband's love child. Not only has the boy's mother been murdered, but he's been dumped on Pat as his wealthy family wants nothing to do with him.

Safe Harbor is a quick, suspenseful read with a hint of romance, perfect for a lazy day on the couch. Rosemary McCracken weaves an interesting and original tale of international intrigue and I'm looking forward to her next book.

I enjoyed this book. I felt the characters were believable and very strong. I liked the way the plot unfolded and also the way the heroine comes to realise that it's time to move on with her life. She proves to be a strong woman who doesn't run from a horrible truth, that her dead husband has cheated on her and fathered a child, but rather takes it on board and works through it, finally realising that the child is her family and must be protected. The action is enough to keep it interesting and the plot totally believable. I found the style of writing succint and very readable. I look forward to reading more from this author.

A solid three and a half stars from me because the story had a bit of everything that a middle aged, female protagonist needs in a drama filled fictional existence.
Pat was a strong character. Compassionate without being over emotional, amateur sleuth without turning into a CSI, a working Mum with an appreciation for music and an animal lover too. Come on ....she never asked to be involved in any of this.
The plot revealed itself at a good pace throughout the book. Not a blockbuster but certainly a page-turner.

I really enjoyed Safe Harbor. It was a little slow at the start but picked up and held my attention as the story progressed.

Very well written with a great storyline and extremely well-developed, likable (mostly) characters.

I would definitely read more books by this author, for a debut novel I thought this was a brilliant effort.

I have no trouble recommending it and award it 4 stars.
