Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

Stalked and on the run, Julie Roy’s life is in shambles. An unexpected detour in a quiet Vermont town ignites a surprising and romantic spark with the local furniture maker.

My Review:

Petrified Julie Roy is on the run from a devious stalker. He’s hacked into her work computer and with the police ineffectual, she has no choice but to run as far away as she can. She spends the night at the Deerbourne Inn and runs into Joe Bascomb. Her nervousness turns to friendliness the more she gets to know him. When her stalker texts her current location, she panics and smashes her phone before throwing it in the trash. She gets in her car to flee but Joe convinces her to stay on his remote farm. He coaxes her to tell him what’s going on. She confides in him and with the local sheriff. Can she trust Joe to protect her from the stalker and more importantly, will this nightmare ever end?

He is Watching is such a gripping, suspenseful story, I white-knuckled my e-reader as I read. Denise Carbo takes on the subject of stalkers and thrusts the reader on an emotional ride as we feel what’s it’s like to be the prey of a sociopathic stalker. The suspense of who the stalker is ratchets up the stakes until the very end. I won’t reveal any spoilers, but I cheered for Julie at the end. The slow-burning romance between Julie and Joe is sweet and touching yet realistic. Julie’s reactions to the stalker and her budding feelings for Joe rang true and honest. Emotional, suspenseful, He is Watching is unputdownable and perfect for an afternoon read. Highly recommend!

Favorite Quote or Character:

Julie. I connected with her right away. Her fright, her reactions, all appeared realistic and authentic. The artistic side of her was a nice reprieve from the suspenseful plot.
