Eyes On You Book Review



I have a suspenseful drama that will leave you wondering what is going to happen next. This poor woman is being stalked but no one believes her and that is the really dangerous part is that someone is getting away with this stalking. The book is called Eyes on You written by Kate White.

Synopsis:
From New York Times bestselling author Kate White comes a riveting psychological suspense in which a media star must battle a malevolent enemy who may be disturbingly close to her. 
After losing her on-air job two years ago, television host Robin Trainer has fought her way back and now she’s hotter than ever. With her new show climbing in the ratings and her first book a bestseller, she’s being dubbed a media double threat. 
But suddenly, things begin to go wrong. Small incidents at first: a nasty note left in her purse; her photo shredded. But the obnoxious quickly becomes threatening when the foundation the makeup artist uses burns Robin’s face. It wasn’t an accident—someone had deliberately doctored with the product. 
An adversary with a dark agenda wants to hurt Robin, and the clues point to someone she works with every day. While she frantically tries to put the pieces together and unmask this hidden foe, it becomes terrifyingly clear that the person responsible isn’t going to stop until Robin loses everything that matters to her . . . including her life.
My thoughts:

Wow, this book is one heart pounding thing right after another! Not that it's gory or blood and guts, but the sheer power that this person has over Robin and it's someone close to her that she considers a friend but for some odd reason, this person wants to destroy her personally and professionally.

Robin thinks it's a rival for the anchor spot but that is what the real stalker wants her to think so she doesn't look too closely at other suspects. The awful thing is that they do succeed until one day Robin decides to fight back with the help of someone who she would have least likely have thought would care or offer to help.

Between the two of them, they uncover a very sick person who really had no real motive or reason for the things that they were doing, or at least not in my book. The stalker is looney tunes but smart enough to outwit the security team at work and the cops! Will Robin and her one alley find the real person in time?

Happy Reading!

Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of nine works of fiction--six Bailey Weggins mysteries (including So Pretty It Hurts and If Looks Could Kill), and three suspense novels: Hush, The Sixes, and the upcoming Eyes on You, which will be published in June of this year.

Kate's writer's eye has been described by the New York Times as "scathingly observant." The Los Angeles Times says of Kate's work: "It's like devouring a box of chocolates!" Publisher's Weekly recent review of her new book, Eyes on You, calls it "timely and engaging," adding that "it's [White's] devious mind that puts the thrill in this thriller." Her books have been published in 18 countries.

For 14 years. Kate was the editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, taking it to number one and keeping it there. Though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2013 to work full time as an author, a long-time dream of hers.

Kate is currently editing the Mystery Writers of America cookbook, a selection of recipes from many of the top selling authors in the field.

Like many mystery writers, Kate fell in love with the genre after reading her first Nancy Drew book, The Secret of Redgate Farm, and she still admires those cliffhanger endings created by "Carolyn Keene."

She is married and the mother of two children. She once had her young daughter stalk her through the woods so she could better describe the sounds of someone being followed.

Kate is also the author of several popular career books, including I Shouldn't Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, and Create the Career You Deserve, and Why Good Girls Don't Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do.
