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.
Eyes on You had me riveted. I literally gobbled 3/4th’s of the book in one night and if I hadn’t needed sleep I would’ve finished it all. I don’t often fly through a book in one night but this was an easy breezy read and I was definitely in the mood for it, which helps a lot.
There’s not that particularly “special” about Eyes on You, it’s the typical mystery – someone is stalking Robin the main character. She is a co-anchor on a show called The Pulse that deals with various celebrity issues, etc, anything trending in the media pretty much. Suddenly as her star is rising with the release of a new book that is quickly becoming a bestseller and her stardom on the show, she’s got someone in her midst that is very unhappy with her success. Robin begins to get creepy notes, and other incidents happen that make her very uneasy. The events ratchet up until she fears for her life, wondering who it could be that has a terrible grudge against her and what they’re willing to do next.
Even though I said there isn’t anything particularly special about this book – it’s definitely a great read for any mystery lover. It’s got all the good marks of a good beach read that keeps you glued to it’s pages until the very end, drinking up every word.
My previous read of Kate White’s was her novel, The Sixes. In my opinion, Eyes on You is much better and it kept me compulsively reading a lot more than her other novel did. But then again, I have a thing about stalkers and such that keep me glued to the pages more than other mystery premises. I think any mystery fan will consider this at least a decent read and if you’re into the whole stalker premise like I am, then you’ll probably eat it up and perhaps want a second helping of one of White’s other novels.
