Emily owns a bed and breakfast on a beach front. Emily lives there with
her daughter Leah, a responsible fifteen-year-old. The night before the
new school year, Leah wants to go for a quick dip in the lake. Emily tells
her it is ok and that is the last time she sees her daughter. Now Leah is
missing, the police feel that she has drowned. Emily is beside herself;
her daughter is such a good swimmer.
Emily tries to get her life together. She decides to go into her
daughter's room finally and just look through her stuff. What she finds
is not what she expected. Emily finds her daughters phone and notices
that she has been texting to an older man. How could this be? Emily
gets a hold of Leah's best friends, Liam who father Derek lives in one of
the cabins, and Skye who lives at home with her dad Jason and her
mother Christy. Neither one of them knows anything about Leah talking
or seeing an older man.
As the weeks go by, Emily is still convinced that Leah is not dead. Could
this older man have taken her somewhere? Emily has found many clues,
just not the one that will put the puzzle together for her.
I'LL BE WATCHING YOU by
Courtney Evan Tate is a great suspense novel. I was hooked from the
very beginning. Tate shows the love a mother has for her child. Emily
never would give up hope. This must be what it is like for parents
whose child goes missing. I also enjoyed how Tate told both sides of
the story, mother's side and Leah's side. It does go back and forth, but
you will not get confused on whose side is being told.
So if you really enjoy suspense novel that will get you hooked from
page one, this novel by Tate is the one to pick up. It came out in April,
so the next time you are in a store, look for this book and enjoy it.
