Single mom Kate O’Donnell is living her worst nightmare. Her young daughter, Clara, who has a medical condition that doesn’t allow her to be vaccinated, becomes critically ill when one of her classmates, Lauren-whose family chose not to vaccinate-contracts and spreads the virus. While Lauren has no trouble recovering from the disease, Clara’s condition worsens. With time spent by her daughter’s bedside, Kate loses her job and slides deeper into medical debt. But when another school parent points the blame at Lauren’s mother, Lucy, and the media begins an attack, we see two very different views on parenting and how badly things can spin out of control when all either of these two women wanted was to keep their daughters safe.

Firstly a huge thank you to the hq team for my proof copy.

I have enjoyed melissas books prior to this ,so was highly intrigued to hear she was branching out in a new direction . I was eager and excited to read keep you safe .

My verdict is a huge omg! Just wow this book is definitely one of my top reads of 2017

This is very controversial and will get its readers talking and debating which I think is the beauty of books. For me as a mum it was fascinating and insightful but also as a mum to 2 children on the autistic spectrum this was going to press some buttons .

Incredibly well researched and written .

Fast paced and compelling. 

You think you know where this storyline Is going then there’s a huge twist .

Many times I felt I was asking myself what would I do ? How would I feel and react?

Incredible book and I look forward to more in this genre from Melissa .



When Rosie Featherstone finds herself unexpectedly jobless, the offer to help her beloved Italian grandmother out at the Lemon Tree Cafe – a little slice of Italy nestled in the rolling hills of Derbyshire – feels like the perfect way to keep busy.

Then disaster looms and the cafe’s fortunes are threatened . . . and Rosie discovers that hernonna has been hiding a dark past of her own. With surprises, betrayal and more than one secret brewing, can she find a way to save the Lemon Tree Cafe and help both herself and Nonna achieve the happy endings they deserve

I have read and loved each and every book of Cathys.  She is an exceptional writer and I will pick her books up without even needing to know title or blurb. You are guaranteed a fantastic uplifting read. 

She has a way of writing characters you connect with straight away. Also characters that get right into your heart and will miss when finish their story .

This is a story of new beginnings , hope family and love . You will be cheering the characters on especially rosie . She has had a change of career and a change of heart when comes to love.  But things don’t always run smoothly and new challenges arise.

Family secrets threaten to disrupt everything rosie has known .

I adored gabe. … serious new book boyfriend alert. Loyal hardworking and a single dad what’s not to love. 

Cannot recommend her books enough always guaranteed to make you smile .

Just disappointed I’ve finished and need to wait for her next release.
