What better way to spend a Friday?
Today I am featuring an ARC from Amazon Vine: Someone Is Watching, by Joy Fielding, one of my favorite authors from way back in the day.
Beginning: The day starts the same way it usually does. Just another monotonously gorgeous October day in Miami, the sky typically blue and cloudless, the temperature expected to reach eighty degrees by noon. There is nothing to suggest that today will vary significantly from yesterday or the day before that, nothing to suggest that today, or more specifically tonight, will change my life forever.
56: (Jade speaking) “Can I go watch TV?”
“No,” Claire says, then changes her mind: “Yes. Go. By all means, go watch TV.”
Jade takes off down the hall. Seconds later, we hear the television blaring.
“I’m really sorry,” Claire begins.
“It’s not okay. I didn’t come here to upset you.”
“Why are you here?” I ask.
Blurb: A pulse-pounding thriller perfect for fans of Lisa Gardner and Mary Higgins Clark with a sly nod toward Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Rear Window, Someone Is Watching boasts the extraordinary edge-of-your-seat storytelling of bestselling author Joy Fielding at the height of her powers.
As a special investigator for a hotshot Miami law firm, Bailey Carpenter is smart, savvy, and fearless. When she’s assigned to spy on a deadbeat dad in the middle of the night, Bailey thinks nothing of the potential dangers, only that she needs to gather evidence. Then she is blindsided—attacked and nearly killed.
