Sometimes secrets are better left buried…
Amy Penrose knows how it feels to grow up in a home where your parents harm you more than raise you.
Now an adult, she’s newly qualified as a child psychologist and hopes to help children who’ve gone through struggles of their own.
When a father brings a twelve-year-old boy into her office, she recognises the bruises and the way the boy withdraws into himself. And she wants to help.
But life is never that simple. With a boyfriend at home who believes her career shouldn’t be more important than getting married and having children, and with a boss who seems to want her to stay late all the time, but not for work reasons, and with other patients who need her, Amy is torn.
As she delves into the family’s past, and starts to feel unsafe in her own home, she starts to wonder if this is one child beyond her help.
Get book one is this heart-racing psychological thriller series from NY Times and USA Today bestselling author M A Comley, and M K Farrar.
What’s better than a favourite author bringing a new book out? Two of your favourite author’s bringing one out together! Was very excited with this pairing and could not wait to see what they had come up with.
Right from meeting Amy, it’s obvious that whilst she maybe where she wants to be in her career, the same can’t be said about her relationship. There are certainly signs of cracks showing which deepen when Amy becomes embroiled in her new client, Edward.
I have to say I was as intrigued as Amy when Edward and his father come into her office. You can’t help but get a gut feeling that something sinister is going on where they are concerned and I was dying for Amy to discover more.
To say that this is the first book that the authors have written together, it flowed brilliantly. There’s always that worry that it might not work but can hand on heart say that this pairing is a sure fired winner.
Watching Over Me will have you close your curtains and lock all your doors. I loved the build of suspense which had me gripped to each page. The story became more fraught as Amy gets closer to discovering the truth and loved how it all ended. Even more so knowing that there is yet more to come.
My thanks to the authors for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
