What would it take to make you intervene?

When Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it—until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert. But just as she’s decided to call for help, something stops her. The next day, she wakes up to the news that one of the girls—beautiful, green-eyed Anna Ballard—has disappeared.

A year later, Anna is still missing. Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to do, and she’s not the only one who can’t forget. Someone is sending her threatening letters—letters that make her fear for her life.

Then an anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide. Anna’s best friend, Sarah, hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night—and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own.

Someone knows where Anna is—and they’re not telling. But they are watching Ella.

Thoughts
This was a good book and it kept me listening to find out what happened to Anna. The author did a good job of making a few of the characters seem like they could be the quilty one so it was hard to figure out who actually did it. When I thought I had it all figured out, I found out I was wrong. It ended up being one of the characters I had never even suspected.

The book switches back and forth with a few different POV’s and I liked that aspect of it. The story takes place in England which I didn’t know until I started listening. The narrator did a great job.

The book is full of suspicions, regret, guilt, fear.  And finally, closure.

I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll”

  1. I’m glad that you enjoyed listening to this audio book, Vicki. It sounds like it would keep me guessing as well. Wonderful review!

  2. That does sound good. I will have to look for the book. Audio books are not good for me, I’ll fall asleep or my mind wanders. Books are my favorites.

  3. Oh this sounds really good and I can sympathize with the situation Ella finds herself in. How many times do most of us second guess ourselves on getting involved when we don’t really have the evidence to say something is bad but just a gut feeling.

    • I’ve only been in that situation once where I struggled with my decision for a few days. Then I realized it was best that I stayed out of it.

  4. I love books that keep me guessing!

  5. I love a good thriller/mystery and this one does sound like it would keep my attention. I’ll add it my listening queue.

  6. I have this one on my wishlist. It looks really good.
