4 SUSPENSEFUL STARS
I did it and I loved it!
I’m am establishing a HUGE liking for suspense novels!
I See You by Clare Mackintosh has really piqued my interest in suspense/thriller novels.
This review isn’t going to be messy at all, I’m going to keep it pretty pretty.
Let’s see what the author has to say. . .
When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it’s there. There’s no explanation: just a grainy image, a website address and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it’s just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.
Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . . .
Why have I been denying myself the satisfaction of stories such as I See You.
I See You made me think really hard about the society that we live in and how our images are out there for the world to see. People become obsessed with others and track them via the Internet or in person. Quite scary when you think about it. I See You makes you think about it.
Zoe is just your everyday girl – not a girl, actually, she’s a woman who finds herself in the personal ads. The scary thing is – she didn’t put it there. Zoe tries to put this behind her and wants to believe it is an accident. After she discovers that someone, who also had their photo in the same paper, has been murdered, she realizes she may be in danger as well.
Kelly, a local cop, becomes essential to Zoe’s safety as she is the only other person who believes that Zoe may be in danger. Kelly’s partner, Nick, also becomes a big part of the storyline and really gives a balance to the story.
The story is a slow build but it is worth it. The story really picks up and the angst and eagerness to find out who, what, when, where, and how everything unfolds. I couldn’t put the book down.
Being predictable can sometimes be disaster when technology makes it so easy to find someone. That’s only one of the many things that stuck with me afterwards.
The story was creepy, frightening, shudder some and more, in the best way.
That ending. . .WOW!
Do I recommend this book? I do. For those romance book lovers who want to step outside of the box and try something different.
Will I read another book by Clare Mackintosh? I can’t wait!
I told you I was going to keep it pretty!
TTYL, lovers. . .
Follow all things messy. . .
