#BookReview (5 Stars) – I am Watching You, by Teresa Driscoll @TeresaDriscoll #iamwatchingyou


What would it take to make you intervene?

When Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it—until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert. But just as she’s decided to call for help, something stops her. The next day, she wakes up to the news that one of the girls—beautiful, green-eyed Anna Ballard—has disappeared.

A year later, Anna is still missing. Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to do, and she’s not the only one who can’t forget. Someone is sending her threatening letters—letters that make her fear for her life.

Then an anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide. Anna’s best friend, Sarah, hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night—and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own.

Someone knows where Anna is—and they’re not telling. But they are watching Ella.

I am watching you

My Review:

I am Watching You is a gripping psychological thriller that I found very intriguing and almost impossible to put down right from the start. This book felt very real and I was so engrossed in it, I completely forgot I was reading.

There was a great mix of believable characters and I really wasn’t sure who to trust, due to secrets certain characters were hiding. Despite having my suspicions, I didn’t guess the outcome in advance.

This was a tense and exciting read, and I even had tears in my eyes at the very end. I do have a bit of a phobia of travelling alone on trains as I have a habit of attracting weirdos, and I also find London scary, so I’m sure these things increased the intensity of the experience for me.

I loved Recipes for Melissa and Last Kiss Goodnight by this author, so I was really looking forward to this book. I’m pleased to say it’s another cracker, and I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next.

      1. If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, you can choose a free book each month from a list of about 6 – usually a new/upcoming release from their own lists. TBH sometimes I don’t find anything to interest me but this month there was a good selection.

  1. Oh I’ve been on the fence about picking this one up but reading your review definitely makes me want to get it! I’ll have to get this one because I haven’t read any mystery novels lately and this one sounds really good!
