By Lisa Jewell
Rating: 4.5/5 Stairs
After reading Then She Was Gone earlier this year, I was eager to read more from Lisa Jewell. Her latest thriller Watching You did not disappoint.
The book opens March 24th, at the scene of a murder, then quickly moves back in time to January 2nd. We meet Joey Mullen and get to know her and other residents in Melville Heights. As we read, we realize there is a common thread among them: Tom Fitzwilliam, headmaster of the local school.
Ms. Jewell intersperses police interviews with suspects and old diary entries from 20 years earlier throughout the narrative, which both give more information and keep the reader guessing to the end. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I’ll just say that Watching You is full of twists and a page turner that kept me reading late into the night. Another great mystery from Lisa Jewell.
Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
