by Joy Fielding
Perfect for fans of Lisa Gardner, Mary Higgins Clark, and Jenny Milchman, Someone Is Watching is a pulse-pounding, edge-of-your-seat novel of suspense.
As a special investigator for a hotshot Miami law firm, Bailey Carpenter is smart, savvy, and fearless. When she’s assigned to spy on a deadbeat dad in the middle of the night, Bailey thinks nothing of the potential dangers, only that she needs to gather evidence. Then she is blindsided—attacked and nearly killed.
Now the firm grip Bailey once had on her life is shaken. Her nightmares merge into her waking hours and she’s unable to venture beyond her front door without panicking. A veritable prisoner in her own home, Bailey is uncertain whom she can trust. But old habits die hard, and soon Bailey finds a new use for her idle binoculars: casually observing from her window neighboring buildings and other people’s lives. This seemingly harmless diversion becomes a guilty pleasure when Bailey fixates on the handsome guy across the street—until she realizes that he is also watching her. Suddenly she must confront the terrifying possibility that he may be the man who shattered her life.
Though crippled by fear, Bailey knows she can’t ignore her suspicions and risk leaving a predator at large. With the police making no headway in solving her case, she’s determined to overcome her terror and reclaim the power she lost by unmasking her attacker and taking him down herself. But it’s a harrowing battle that threatens to wreck Bailey’s credibility, compromise an investigation, and maybe even claim her sanity.

My Someone is Watching Review...
One of my all time favorite books is Still Life by Joy Fielding so, I jumped at the opportunity to review this book. I was hooked from the very beginning of this book all the way to the end.
The story is about Bailey Carpenter who is a private investigator working for a law firm. She is good at her job but was barely holding it together in the other aspects of her life.
Right at the beginning of the story, Bailey gets attacked and loses a part of herself. She can barely keep it together and is having a hard time knowing what is real and what is not. Her fears are drowning her.
As we follow the story it's hard to figure out if Bailey is losing it or not. There is so many twists and turns that you eagerly waiting to find out what next is going to happen. Joy Fielding has such a gift at suspenseful thrillers. I was engaged throughout and so shocked with all the twists and turns. I was emotional captivated throughout waiting to find out what is happening to poor Bailey.
If you like thrillers than Joy Fielding is a go to author for this genre. With Someone is Watching you feel all of Bailey's pain, fear and anxieties. While reading you're encaptured and waiting while watching Bailey on her personal journey to find out what happened to her and how she deals with the aftermath of being attacked. There is so much more to say about this book but then I would be giving away what happens. This is one of those books that just needs to be experienced to get the full effect.
