Wherever you go…
she’ll be watching.
Sarah Goldman, mother to six-year-old Jacob, is relieved to move across the country. She has a lot she wants to leave behind, especially Holly Monroe, the pretty twenty-two-year-old babysitter she and her husband, Daniel, hired to take care of their young son last summer. It started out as a perfect arrangement—Sarah had a childminder her son adored, and Holly found the mother figure she’d always wanted. But Sarah’s never been one to trust very easily, so she kept a close eye on Holly, maybe too close at times. What she saw raised some questions, not only about who Holly really was but what she was hiding. The more Sarah watched, the more she learned—until one day, she saw something she couldn’t unsee, something so shocking that all she could do was flee.
Sarah has put it all behind her and is starting over in a different city with her husband and son. They’ve settled into a friendly suburb where the neighbors, a tight clique of good citizens, are always on the lookout for danger. But when Sarah finds hidden cameras in her new home, she has to wonder: Has her past caught up to her, and worse yet, who’s watching her now?
Read for a psychological thrill from the first page to the very last!
The twists in this book were so unexpected and spine-tingling. More than once I found myself thinking I did not see that coming. So many times I looked to the title wondering which “her” I should be watching out for. The author always kept me guessing, and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out “who.”
I can’t even imagine being in the position of Sarah Goldman, the main character, who was the one being watched. I can’t imagine what I would feel like moving into a new home and finding cameras planted there by some unknown individual, a stalker, maybe someone wanting to do my family harm, but not really knowing for certain why. Reading this book was like reading on the edge of a knife. I knew it was fiction, but it truly sent thrills and chills through me and sometimes scared me.
I would definitely read something by this author again if given the chance. I didn’t find one hole in the story. She did an excellent job of jumping back and forth from past to present without confusing the reader or confusing any details. Highly recommend!
