Watch Out for Her by Samantha M. Bailey

Wherever you go…
she’ll be watching.

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?

A tense psychological thriller about a mother who must keep watch at all times if she wants to keep her family safe—from USA TODAY and #1 national bestselling author Samantha M. Bailey.
A spine-tingling, page-turning novel from USA TODAY and #1 national bestselling author Samantha M. Bailey, Watch Out for Her is psychological suspense at its very best—a chilling look at trust, voyeurism, and obsession in the modern age, and how far we will go to watch out for those we love.

4.5/5 stars

Canadian author Samantha Bailey has yet again hit it out of the park with this suspenseful story that kept me guessing right till the end.

Told from 2 POVS and set between Toronto and Vancouver (I love a Canadian setting) it was spaced out over a matter of months that kept me intrigued, reading 'just one more chapter' was my motto for this book.

Holly just wants a family who lovers her for herself and for Sarah she just wants to forget the summer that caused her to move clear across the country and start over.  But she can't move on when things start happening.  When everyone looks suspicious. When panic sets in. 

Watch Out for Her is an addicting read, it was well written and kept me on my toes with its twists and turns.  It's a story of searching, relationships and secrets, so many secrets.  Though it doesn't release till next month it is available for preorder now and it's one I highly recommend.

My thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada (via Netgalley) for an advanced digital copy in exchange for a honest review.
