About The Book:
Sarah Goldman, mother to six-year-old Jacob, is relieved to move across the country. She has a lot she wants to leave behind, especially Holly Monroe, the pretty twenty-two-year-old babysitter she and her husband, Daniel, hired to take care of their young son last summer. It started out as a perfect arrangement—Sarah had a childminder her son adored, and Holly found the mother figure she’d always wanted. But Sarah’s never been one to trust very easily, so she kept a close eye on Holly, maybe too close at times. What she saw raised some questions, not only about who Holly really was but what she was hiding. The more Sarah watched, the more she learned—until one day, she saw something she couldn’t unsee, something so shocking that all she could do was flee. Sarah has put it all behind her and is starting over in a different city with her husband and son. They’ve settled into a friendly suburb where the neighbors, a tight clique of good citizens, are always on the lookout for danger. But when Sarah finds hidden cameras in her new home, she has to wonder: Has her past caught up to her, and worse yet, who’s watching her now?
That song by The Police kept going through my head the entire time I was reading this domestic thriller. Told via two points of view and two timelines Watch Out for Her is my favourite type of book. I always enjoy a good Now and Before timeline story. There is a lot of internal dialogue within this book and I love that as well. There isn't a better way to get inside the characters head.
This is my first read by this author and if her sophomore book is any indication I will be reading her debut Woman on the Edge. I can't finish this review without mentioning that it takes place in my hometown of Toronto, Canada which is also where the author is from. ❤️🇨🇦❤️
With many thanks to NetGalley, Samantha M. Bailey and Simon & Schuster Canada for the giving of the ARC.
