Safe and Sound by T.S. Krupa with givaway.

When great love is lost forever, what does it take to find the courage to move on?
When Jill met Jay Greenfield she knew she found her forever love. Together their lives were perfect. But when a tragic accident takes Jay’s life, this young bride is left to pick up the pieces. With support from her two childhood best friends, Lanie and Stella, Jill attempts to piece her life back together.
Meanwhile, in the process of settling the estate, Jill learns that her husband was not quite the man she thought he was. She finds herself transported to the small beach town of Oak Island, North Carolina. But the fairy tale ending she envisioned no longer exists. She must face the reality that Jay is gone as she finds herself having a chance at love one more time.
Safe & Sound follows the yearlong journey of love, loss, friendship, and conquering the unexpected.

You say goodbye to your husband as you lie in bed half awake. He leaves to go for his morning run. 
A normal day in Jill's life except for the fact that this is the day she will receive devastating news.
The book is about Jill recovering from the death of her husband of only two years. They were completely in love with each other and Jill doesn't think she can go on without him.
Laine and Stella are Jill's best friends and although they have lives of their own to lead they make sure that Jill is never left alone and are determined that she will come through this and find a new life for herself.
The first few chapters of this book were at such a fast pace I couldn't put it down. I liked Jill as a leading character and I think she acted as anyone would on hearing such devastating news. I thought her friends were a bit overbearing but I don't think Jill would have survived if they had left her alone.
Someone Jill trusts is not trustworthy and I felt she could be in danger and this gave the book an edge for me.
I thought the descriptions of the beach and beach house where Jill and Jay used to go to were so vivid I want to go there for my next holiday.
The blurb on the book says that Jill finds out that her husband Jay was not the man she thought he was. I went through most of the book hoping that Jay did not have another wife or another family, but I'm not going to tell you if that was what happened as it would spoil the story for you.
It didn't take me long to read this story as I immediately cared for Jill and what would happen to her.
A good debut novel for T.S Krupa and I await her next book with anticipation.
