Review

National Bestseller

"A page-turning ride." —Kirkus Reviews

"For more than 40 years now, Joy Fielding has been churning out blood-curdling bestsellers with staggering consistency. Her latest and 25th novel―Someone Is Watching―contains many of the Fielding signatures: a strong female heroine, an unknown evil-doer and a mystery that will keep you reading well past lights-out."
The Globe and Mail

Some of the more recent Joy Fielding's haven't wowed me, but this one sure did. It has been a while since I have read one of hers and this one made me remember why she's one of my favourite authors.
Bailey is a recent rape victim. She was working as an investigator and a night of surveillance ended in her worst nightmare. The event haunts her and she can't let go of the terror. She never saw the rapist, only remembers certain features and the words "tell me you love me". Her life is falling apart, she can't work , she can't eat, she can't sleep, her whole existence is reliving the event in her head and seeing every man she meets as her possible rapist. She has no one she can rely on. Not Heath, her irresponsible brother who lives every day as a party. Travis, her old boyfriend, almost as irresponsible as Heath, and Heath's best friend? Or her married boyfriend? One of her five half siblings, they are currently suing her, so that isn't likely and she doesn't seem to have many friends. Then her half sister Claire, swoops in to put the pieces of Bailey back again. And while her first notion is that Claire is sucking up to get on her good side so she'll share her father's fortune, she soon finds that Claire is a godsend. She feeds her, takes care of her, stays with her, does her laundry, gets her to a therapist, and the two sisters develop a closeness that surprises Bailey, as they have never had any relationship in the past. Heath and Bailey are products of their father's third marriage, they had it all, while it seems their father forgot about his families before them. Bailey had a doting father, grew up in a beautiful house, had whatever she wanted, and his entire fortune was left to Heath and Bailey.

Bailey Carpenter is beautiful, rich and seems to have the world at her feet. She is happy with job as a private is investigator at leading Miami law firm. The only stresses in her life is a lawsuit by her half brothers and sisters over their deceased father's fortune and a recent breakup with her boyfriend. Then one night while on surveillance for her job, she is viciously sexually assaulted. The police have no leads and she can't identify her assailant as she never saw his face. Her former life falls to pieces. She takes a leave of absence from her job and holes up in her condo suffering from PTSD. She sees every man as her potential rapist. Her older half sister suddenly appears with her teenage daughter to offer support, and slowly they develop a bond despite the lawsuit. Strange appearances are seen with a man in a window of a condo across from her. Could he be her rapist? She becomes obsessed with finding out to the point where people start questioning her sanity. And is there any connection to the family lawsuit over her father's fortune?

The best thing about the book was illustrating how psychologically devestating rape is. The transformation of a confident young woman to someone who is a shadow of herself, waking with nightmares and compulsively checking her doors and locks was quite powerful. The "Rear Window" aspect to the story was also creepy and intriguing. But ultimately, the plot was a little thin for me. And I didn't quite buy that a very wealthy beautiful young woman would work as a PI. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable read.

I have read all of Joy Fielding's books and always look forward to a new one. This one was not up to her normal standard in my opinion. It actually took me a while to get through it. The only suspenseful parts came quite close to the end.

The story begins with Bailey's assault. She is beaten, raped and left for dead. This is quite graphic and horrible so anyone who is sensitive to this sort of thing should be very cautious about reading this book. It is easy to see why she suffers from P.T.S.D. afterward. She relives the rape over and over, seeing her rapist everywhere and in every man. She becomes a recluse in her apartment and has breakdowns whenever she tries to go out. Even in her secure apartment she doesn't feel safe. It is so hard to read about this tough, independent woman being completely broken. There were so many characters in Bailey's life that seemed suspicious that I could understand why she had such serious trust issues and I never knew who might be up to no good. Jade was priceless comic relief! In the end I was quite surprised by the resolution. It was not at all what I had assumed was going on or who I would have expected to be involved. I'm being super vague because the whole fun of this story is to figure it out alongside Bailey!
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. Thank you!

Not one of her best! Long, drawn-out with, in my opinion, unrealistic drama and wasting of police time and resources. I felt that even though Bailey is wealthy, no police force would be prepared to devote so much time and resources on one case in a city the size of Miami
All in all, I was not impressed

New author for me and I have to say that this wasn't very challenging reading, and with that I find the book was just ok.
Found the character of Bailey to be quite paranoid to the point of it being over the top. Given that the character has been attacked I did cut her some slack- however I found the book to be lacklustre in that through the entire book, nothing much really happens until a few pages to the end.
Yes the tiny buildup to the ending has some creepy suspense and the -whodunit- is discovered ( and I had kind of figured it out,) but I don't think I would read this author again only because for me the writing is not challenging enough or anything you can sink your reading chops into. However, if you are looking for a light/ fast/ easy read this is a good book for you.
