Somebody is Watching by Joy Fielding
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.
WHOA I thought this was going to be a HUGE let down, but I was wrong.
I was only partially correct in my predictions. There was more to my first guess and a whole different mystery I failed to notice. Like Bailey, I was totally oblivious to the clues that were right there in the open.
WARNING the attack scene is tough to get through, but the suspense and mystery is awesome. You think you know, but once again Joy Fielding has thrown me for a loop.
So glad Bailey finally came to her senses about a few things and in a sense grew up and stood up for herself.
((((While I was right about the sister, Claire, setting up the fake neighbor and him attacking his fake girlfriend, I was wrong about her setting up the rape too. I really thought she set it up to make Bailey look crazy. Glad the niece, Jade, was not part of the scam.
I totally missed that the man who raped Bailey was the desk clerk in her building-Finn. DUH! She was having dreams about sharks attacking her in which she could only see thier fins. She would freak out every time the phone rang-since that was how they alerted the residents to guests coming up.))
~~~Now I’m Reading~~~
My Sister’s Grave by Robert Dugoni
Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House — a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder — is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers.
When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past — and open the door to deadly danger.
Already liking the plot and switching back and forth between present and past. We are buidling up to why Tracy became the person she is today. I have a feeling this is going to be another mind blowing thriller.
