Fairly Safe by Deborah Ann Davis

Date Published: August 2016

Publisher: D&D Universe, llc


Goodreads BlurbJACOB HAS COME A LONG WAY FOR AN ORPHANED FOSTER KID. He has a mentor, a great job, and has finally fallen in love. Granted, she mistook him for a stalker when they met, but every relationship has its little problems. Unfortunately, for the past few years, as the object of his affection pops in and out of his life, she has refused to share any personal info, like where she’s from, or her real name. Regardless, Jacob is ready to take their relationship to the next level. Now, if only he can locate her so he can tell her.

CASEY’S FAMILY IS IN THE WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM. Safety has to be their only priority. Their cover has been blown before, so Casey knows at any given time they could be forced to disappear again. Obviously, a shy young man with hopeful eyes cannot possibly be added to the mix. You cannot build a relationship like that. Now, if only she can stop thinking about him.

JACOB’S AND CASEY’S WORLDS UNEXPECTEDLY COLLIDE when Jacob inadvertently helps hide her family. Exposed to their 24-7 vigilance, Jacob realizes he must come up with a plan to keep them out of harm’s way, because this time if Casey disappears, she will be taking with her Jacob’s heart, and his hopes of finally having a family of his own.


SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW

Fairly Safe is a magical novel of romance, mystery, and fairytale. Initially I was a bit put-off by the language, which seemed formal and old fashioned, but came to realize that it perfectly fit the subject matter of the magical fairytale. Another style, current realism, for instance, with its habitual use of slang and profanity would have not had the same effect at all. The reader needed to be transported not only by idea but by language as well.

It seems like everyone in Fairly Safe has a secret and it’s the secrets that are the driving force behind the novel because the secrets mean the lack of communication and that people act without having any facts. While most of the action and decisions are made with the reader witnessing it all, there are a few red herrings that keep up the reader’s suspense. This all amounts to a really good, well-though-out, tangle of a read.

Lately I have read quite a few novels in which relationships of all kinds are the heart-blood. Fairly Safe is one of these novels. It also shows that family goes beyond blood, that the people you fill your world with can become your family. There is love of all kinds–secretive, sweet, familial, romantic. It’s kind of like a smorgasbord of love, which is a delight to read.

And, speaking of delight, the concluding chapters in which almost all of the characters come together are so much fun. They put me in mind of old movies where there’s laughter and love and just a sense of goodwill.

While this is the second book in the Love of Fairs series, it reads as a standalone.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Thank you for hosting me, and thank you for the fabulous review. Sometimes when I read a review, I can’t tell, but you really got everything I was striving to communicate. I hope the next book in the series, Fairly Obvious, which will be out in 2017, will be received as well. I’m so glad you enjoyed Fairly Safe.
