Have you ever felt like someone was watching you? You will after reading Clare Mackintosh's latest release I See You. Told from the perspectives of two women, one who appears to be targeted by a criminal and the other who is the police officer working the case, this psychological thriller will have you looking over your own shoulder by the end.

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to get worried.

Kelly is an officer with the British Transport Police who has a history that has kept her off the big cases recently. But when a case she's covering ends up connecting to a murder investigation, she gets herself involved as fast as she can. She helps to investigate the advertisements that seem to be related to crimes happening to women around the city.

I got sucked right into I See You. I haven't read a thriller in a while so it was fun to get into one. I had several suspicions throughout the book about what exactly was going on with the advertisements and who was behind it, but the twists were not what I expected. There's tons of suspense and tense moments for both Zoe and Kelly, as well as some growth for both characters during the story. I highly recommend I See You if you're looking for a psychological thriller that will keep you guessing.

Author Clare Mackintosh uses her background as a police officer to build the world and the characters she creates in her novels. Watch this video to hear more about it.

  1. I never guessed who was behind the ads. Terrific revelation. :)

    I enjoyed this book, but for me it took too long for the suspense to happen.

    Excellent review...thanks for sharing your thoughts. I always enjoy seeing what other readers think.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
