Safe & Sound by T.S. Krupa

Holy emotional roller coaster! I was crying within the first 15% of Safe and Sound, and not just sniffles either...full on ugly crying.  This book hit every emotion you can think of.  The whole premise of such a young woman losing her husband so suddenly is very sad, but T.S. Krupa did an excellent job of showing true raw emotion.

Safe and Sound followed Jill through the entire first year after her husband Jay passed away, and I really felt completely connected with her.  There was no sugar coating the complete despair that you feel when losing a loved one.  It also had some of the most touching moments shared with some amazing friends.  I was so invested in this book right at the start and couldn't put it down.  I needed to know if Jill came out the other end of this story OK, or if the pain of having her future completely altered in a matter of minutes was just too much for her to overcome.

Jill had the help of some of her oldest friends, Stella and Lanie, along with her husbands best friend Harry to get her through the toughest time of her life.  She had lost her husband, and also found out that he had been keeping several very large secrets from her.  She trusted these people as if they were family, because to her they were the only family she had left.  But did they all deserve this trust??? How did Jay keep all of these secrets? Did she really even know him at all?
