Review; Killing Her Softly by Barb Warner Deane

Last year I was lucky enough to recieve a press copy of the novel Killing Her Softly by Barb Warner Deane through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now as I wanted to focus on crime fiction this month.

Description from Goodreads
Afraid for her life after spending ten years in an abusive marriage, Kate Finelli has to find the courage to get herself out. When she calls the sheriff’s office, she hears a familiar voice--Jack, the first man to show her love. Can Kate trust him to help her get away from the long-suffering abuse?

Jack left Harper’s Glen for a career in the FBI. He’s returned to fill in for the sheriff, the man who mentored him his whole life. With strained family ties, Jack doesn’t plan on staying in this small town for long, until a panicked call comes in from Kate. He left when she chose his brother, but must stay to help her now.

With the backdrop of a murder investigation and threatening notes, Kate and Jack find each other again. Will the tension within their family keep them apart? Or will their struggle for safety bring them together after all these years?

My Thoughts on the Book
Even though it is an important and well written book about domestic violence, I sometimes questioned some of Kate's actions, such as getting out of the shelter so quickly. Though I can in a sense see why, as she probably longed for her freedom.
