I’LL BE WATCHING YOU – Courtney Evan Tate (out now!)
IT’S EVERY MOTHER’S NIGHTMARE…BUT ONE SHE WILL NOT ACCEPT
In an unthinkable flash, Emmy Fisher’s fifteen-year-old daughter, Leah, seemingly drowns close to shore one summer night—at least that is what the police report says.
In deep grief, Emmy needs time and courage before she can enter Leah’s bedroom. But when she does, she finds something at first bewildering, then unspeakable, as she begins to understand the full implications…
She uncovers evidence that Leah had been secretly involved with someone, someone perhaps older, someone with dark appetites.
Bit by bit, the last few months of Leah’s life unfold in a terrifying way that Emmy can hardly imagine.
All she knows is that she has to find the person who took her sweet daughter’s innocence. No matter the cost.
The truth will set her free. Or bury her.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
This was my first book by Courtney Evan Tate and I had heard great things about her previous release, so I was ready to dive in! I’LL BE WATCHING YOU is a solid thriller that kept me engaged the entire time. I loved the writing and the character development. I feel like in some thrillers or suspense novels we can kind of miss out on that.
I’ll always be a fan of the stalker thrillers. It’s so real and a situation many people, unfortunately, find themselves in. You never know if someone is following you or watching your every move. The action begins right away with Leah’s disappearance. Emmy is shaken to her core when she hears that her daughter has disappeared – when her paddleboard washes ashore the missing person’s case turns into a death. Emmy is determined to find out what happened to her daughter and she won’t rest until she finds her body – dead or alive.
You really connect with the characters and I loved how Tate unfolded the events. There was a great pacing and plenty of twists thrown in to keep you on your toes. If you’re a fan of the stalker thriller/disappearance suspense genre, then this will be perfect for you. I will definitely be going back to pick up her other book!
