Book Club: Watching You by Lisa Jewell

Watching You

Henpicked’s book of the month for September 2019…

Watching YouThank you for all your book reviews and interesting discussion about The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton.

For this month we’ve chosen Watching You by Lisa Jewell. A brilliant psychological thriller by the bestselling author…

You’re back home after four years working abroad, new husband in tow. You’re keen to find a place of your own. But for now you’re crashing in your big brother’s spare room. That’s when you meet the man next door.

He’s the head teacher at the local school. Twice your age. Extraordinarily attractive. You find yourself watching him. All the time. But you never dreamed that your innocent crush might become a deadly obsession.

Or that someone is watching you.

Here are the reviews:

‘The very definition of a terrific beach read.Independent

‘Page one intrigued me. Page three hooked me. By page five, I was consumed. This compulsive, propulsive novel is both a seize-you-by-the-throat thriller and a genuinely moving family drama. Stellar.’ A J Finn

‘A finely drawn domestic thriller.’ India Knight, Sunday Times

‘Brilliantly plotted and impossible to put down, it kept me guessing until the very end.’ Alice Feeney
