MY REVIEW OF
WATCHING YOU BY LYNDA RENHAM.
Watching you is a gripping thriller that feels a bit like a cat and mouse chase. I really enjoyed the gripping storyline and getting to see both sides of the tragic murder from Libby and Ewan’s eyes. This is the perfect book to read in the dark or on your phone while running on a treadmill, either way, you’ll feel your heart pounding in your chest.
The story itself follows Libby as she discovers her loved ones murdered in their home. However, she knows who did it. 15 years later Ewan gets released from prison and starts to rebuild his life, reconnect with the few friends that still believe in his innocence’s. However, does he have darker motives to haunt Libby now he’s free? Libby feel’s he does and becomes a sacred shadow of herself, every noise, every phone call, the thought of returning to the outside world makes her jump, her heart pound. But will she come in contact with Ewan? Will he seek revenge? Or is this all in her mind and the world have moved on since 15 years ago? Read this book to find out.
I really enjoyed getting to know Libby and thought that author Lynda did a great job at projecting her feeling of fear and being mentally torched throughout the book. I think at times Libby had me wondering if the fear she felt was all in her head or if the phone calls were real and she really was getting haunted. I liked how her character kept me guessing.
I also found Ewan character interesting, after he was released from prison we get to see him in the past, his love affairs with taken women and fights that happened while working for Libby’s family, then him interacting with others from his past life and how they perceive his guilt/ innocence. For me, I was never sure until the end if he was a murderer or just a misunderstood man.
If you like chilling stories that will keep you guessing. Why not try Watching You by Lynda Renham.
