Watching You Summary

Watching You: Brilliant psychological crime from the author of THEN SHE WAS GONE by Lisa Jewell

YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WATCHING

'Page one intrigued me. Page three hooked me. By page five, I was consumed. This compulsive, propulsive novel is both a seize-you-by-the-throat thriller and a genuinely moving family drama. Stellar.' - A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

'Jewell writes wonderfully engaging characters who weave plausibly tangled webs and the whodunit was largely incidental until the closing pages. She masterfully draws all her threads together throwing in some cunning twists for good measure...The countdown is on for the next Lisa Jewell novel.' - Daily Express
_______________

_______________

'I was totally gripped by this excellent psychological thriller. Set in Bristol, it opens with a dead body, then moves into the head of Joey, a newly-married 27-year-old who gets a sudden crush on one of her new neighbours, which quickly becomes obsessive. Hugely enjoyable.' - Marian Keyes, author of The Break

'If you only pick one summer read this year, make it Watching You. I inhaled it in one sitting. A gripping plot, characters you love but can't trust, and a thumping emotional heart, Lisa Jewell has done it again.' - Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes and 13 Minutes

'If you loved The Woman in The Window and The Girl on the Train then this is for you!' - the Hotlist, U Magazine

'Then She Was Gone was my favourite thriller last year and this is even better. Brilliantly plotted and impossible to put down, it kept me guessing until the very end.' - Alice Feeney, author of Sometimes I Lie

'She's done it again! Lisa Jewell has penned the page-turner of the summer. Emotionally-engrossing and utterly compelling, with a mystery that keeps you gripped until the last heart-wrenching page.' - Tammy Cohen, author of They All Fall Down

I've always been jealous of her. I've always envied her ability to write a sentence.
She's written a couple of psychological thrillers and her plotting is really great but her characterisation is great as well.

This book is a huge wow for me. This is my first time reading a book by Lisa Jewell and what a book this is! I was so mesmerised right from the start. It's such a page-turner but I will admit that I did take my time to read this because I didn't want it to end. * Marina & The Books blog *
This is a story of obsession and secrets, infatuation and deceit and if you are looking for something to keep you guessing throughout then Watching You is definitely a book you should read. * Compulsive Readers blog *
