Watching You | Lisa Jewell
Gripping psychological suspense from the number one bestselling author of Then She Was Gone, as what begins as an innocent crush develops into a dangerous infatuation. You’re back home after four years working abroad with a brand new husband in tow. You’re keen to find a place of your own. But for now you’re living with your big brother, camped out in his spare bedroom. And then – quite unexpectedly – you meet the man next door. He’s the head teacher of the local high school. He’s twice your age. And he’s devastatingly attractive. Soon you find you’re watching him. All the time. But what you don’t know is that someone is watching you. Or that what has started as an innocent crush is quickly turning into an obsession as dark as it is deadly. Family secrets, illicit passion and an unexplained murder lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell’s gripping new novel.

I signed up for a free trial of Audible for in-between Podcast episode listening, and omg I‘m sucked into this book! I‘ll probably end up zoning out and mowing the lawn for hours while listening to this until my husband comes out and yells at me to get inside. #audiobook

Great audiobook for a work commute because it‘s entertaining yet doesn‘t require your complete attention. Even though I guessed the ending 2/3 through, there were still enough related plot lines to keep me engaged. 3/5 ⭐️

SilversReviews A pretty good read for me. 2mo

ambam1987 Can you tell me more how this works?! Do you read, write comments and pass it along to a list of people?! 2mo
cwarnier @ambam1987 I followed @suvata who hosts #lmpbc (litsy mail postal book club). The idea is that you choose a book and read it marking it with your thoughts and comments. Then mail it off to another person on your assigned list. They do the same. Sign ups are done in 4 person groups and in the end you end up with your book back. You keep each book for 1 month. I would guess sign ups for the next round are coming out as this is my lasst book. 1mo

This is the 7th or 8th Lisa Jewell book I‘ve read, and I have loved them all. I like the turn she‘s taken into a more suspenseful / Liane Moriarty-ish style. #howjessreadsin2019

What a fun read!

Lisa Jewell has everyone watching everyone in the “safe” town where Joey and her husband Alfie recently moved to, staying with Joey‘s brother and sister-in-law.

On their street, Mr. Fitzwilliam moves in, and everyone seems so attracted to him, despite his having a wife, Nicola. But there‘s always secrets behind closed doors...

And everyone has a secret in this book. Loved the different perspectives and quite the page-turner!

tjwill That looks delicious! 2mo
knotmagick That looks sooooo good right now! 2mo

So my haul from Half Price Books wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. They had a lot of books, but I felt more than a few of the ones I wanted were over priced for the condition of the book. I'm not against paying full price, or half price as the name of the place states but not for books with pages falling out. I did get these two booka though which I am happy about.

Why is it that so far I have read parts of *every* #LMPBC book this round while waiting for car service? Book 1- oil change, Book 2-snow tire removal and now with Book 3- brakes. (Ugh)

The books certainly make the adulting less painful!

I found this a little hard to get in to at the beginning of the book and my mind wandered while I was listening. There were lots of characters introduced right off the bat which overwhelmed my brain. Having said that, I eventually got used to the jumping between narratives and the final twist actually surprised me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

An entertaining read overall! I agree with other reviews that it builds up slowly at the beginning, but there are enough twists and events that keeps it intriguing. Though I ultimately never warmed up to main character, other characters throughout are lovable and interesting!

About halfway through this book and it‘s been an enjoyable read. Currently not a big fan of the main character, but interested enough to find out more about what happens in their story.

I just did a post for this and it froze and I lost it 😩😩😩 oh well - on to this book. I loved this one. Lisa Jewell is such an awesome author and I haven‘t disliked anything she has written yet. There were so many good twists and I was really surprised by the end. I really enjoyed this and am sending it off to its next destination this week! #lmpbc

Everyone in the posh upscale neighborhood of Melville Heights has a secret and everyone is watching each other. I will say that you find out at the very beginning that someone has been murdered, but you don‘t find out til near the very end who has been killed, why or by whom. I love books about neighborhoods with secrets

kaykay521 Also...so many questions about that ending??!?. Did Nicola kill Viva? Why was she bullying her so bad? How did a teen fake a suicide so well to full police? Or did she convince Viva to kill herself after fooling her about mr fitzwilliam. Did Tom know what Nicola had done before the Lake District trip? I need to talk to people about this book. 4mo

First I have to admit that this book took me a while to get into. I listened to it on audio on my drive to and from work and it was near the end of the 2nd disc that I finally got hooked. But then it was so good! I'd sit in my car after I got home to listen for a good stopping point. The narrative reminded me of Girl On The Train. I did guess the killer but it really kept me intrigued until the end.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. What an enjoyable book this was. It held my interest from the very beginning and as the characters and plots developed it gripped me. It centres around a neighbourhood street where neighbours are spying on each other, one neighbour ends up murdered and we are wondering why no one seems to be as they appear. An intriguing plot with fascinating characters. #lisajewell

Melville Heights, Bristol, England. Joey Mullen, has an infatuation with headmaster Tom Fitzwilliam. Tom's teenaged son Freddie has witnessed Joey and his father. 20 years earlier, a schoolgirl had obsession with English teacher, Mr. Fitzwilliam. What does the schoolgirl's infatuation have to do with Joey Mullin's? Jewell‘s twisty plot has just the right pace. You will be kept guessing until the last page. Recommended to those who love suspense.

Jewell‘s books are reliable for this genre. I‘ve successfully predicted her last two books (including this one.) Jewell does a good job of getting into her characters heads and I felt for Joey. And for Nicola and Tom‘s son (I can‘t remember his name). Interesting as it unfolds with some twists. If you liked past books of hers, you will like this one.

This took me longer than usual to read since. I moved into a new place in under a week 😞 so tired...just finished it last night and I loved it!! About halfway, I was able to guess what would happen. I mean, I knew who did it, but I didn't know why. Overall, great writer and I will be looking for more of her books!!!

Victoriahoperose Question - are we following the new address form that we received? Which changes the order that we send the books? @cwarnier @OriginalCyn620 @whippoorwill815 5mo
whippoorwill815 @Victoriahoperose @cwarnier @OriginalCyn620 I was wondering the same thing ! It really doesn‘t matter to me if we want to keep the same order from last time or use the new one . 5mo
OriginalCyn620 It doesn‘t matter to me but I think I deleted the old email when we got the new one. But I know I mailed to Christina, so really, I can do either way. Changing it up might be nice though! @cwarnier @Victoriahoperose @whippoorwill815 5mo

cwarnier I like the idea of mixing it. If It's ok with everyone let's do the new order. This will give us a different look at the books and points of view. @OriginalCyn620 @whippoorwill815 @Victoriahoperose 5mo
