Watch Out for Her by Samantha M. Bailey
Psychological Thriller, 336 pages
Published April 19, 2022 by Simon & Schuster

Wherever you go…
she’ll be watching.

Sarah Goldman, mother to six-year-old Jacob, is relieved to move across the country. She has a lot she wants to leave behind, especially Holly Monroe, the pretty twenty-two-year-old babysitter she and her husband, Daniel, hired to take care of their young son last summer. It started out as a perfect arrangement—Sarah had a childminder her son adored, and Holly found the mother figure she’d always wanted. But Sarah’s never been one to trust very easily, so she kept a close eye on Holly, maybe too close at times. What she saw raised some questions, not only about who Holly really was but what she was hiding. The more Sarah watched, the more she learned—until one day, she saw something she couldn’t unsee, something so shocking that all she could do was flee.

Sarah has put it all behind her and is starting over in a different city with her husband and son. They’ve settled into a friendly suburb where the neighbors, a tight clique of good citizens, are always on the lookout for danger. But when Sarah finds hidden cameras in her new home, she has to wonder: Has her past caught up to her, and worse yet, who’s watching her now?

A tense psychological thriller about a mother who must keep watch at all times if she wants to keep her family safe—from USA Today and #1 national bestselling author Samantha M. Bailey.

A spine-tingling, page-turning novel from USA Today and #1 national bestselling author Samantha M. Bailey, Watch Out for Her is psychological suspense at its very best—a chilling look at trust, voyeurism, and obsession in the modern age, and how far we will go to watch out for those we love. 

My thoughts about Watch Out for Her ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"I watch people."

Watch Out for Her is full of creepiness and questionable characters. All of them—Sarah, the mom, Daniel, the dad, and Holly, the babysitter—have secrets they are keeping from the others and everyone is suspicious of everybody else and wonders what they might be up to. Honestly, I didn't really like any of them either and was suspicious of them myself. 

But you know what? That suspicion and creepiness is what kept me turning the pages. I just had to figure out who was behind it all and what their motives were. Everyone was suspect, even the friendly neighbors in their new neighborhood. 

The exciting ending had me on the edge of my seat and I was able to finally take a breath when I got to the end. Watch Out for Her is an exciting thriller that you must read, just be prepared to not know who to like or which person is the good guy and who you need to watch.

I received an ARC of Watch Out for Her from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion of the book.
