Reading the cover of this book I thought it sounded really good but I really didn't enjoy it. There was gratuitous sex throughout which had no real role in the story. This wwas the first time I have read this author and sadly it will be the last. It was predictable and not good at all. Sorry.

I must be frank and say this is not a book I would normally have chosen to read. I downloaded it from an Amazon prompt and began to wonder why I was reading what amounted to a lot of girly stuff laced with a bit of soft porn. Then it became clear that within the light and rather narrow setting was a substantial and well written novel exploring the tragic world which somehow we know about but ignore. The world in which young children get a rough deal which destroys their own lives as well as the lives of those with whom they later entangle.

A tour de force which has made me think, at one level harrowing but at another full of hope; hope that as a society we can do better than this. The author showed courage and ingenuity to communicate her message. I am glad she did and I admire her for it.

I have read all of Mel's previous books and was really looking forward to reading her latest. Staying true to form with her own style of 'grit lit' Watching Over You draws you in right from the start! Charley is a likeable character, the sort of person that you'd like as a best friend but who has experienced a devastating loss. She's trying to make a fresh start and rents a flat from Ella. Ella herself has experienced loss too but seems to deal with it in a completely different way. Ella is desperate to befriend Charley but is clumsy in her approach and despite Ella's bizarre behaviour you actually start to feel sorry for her. Mel's books are not for the fainted hearted; you've got voyeurs, violence, grief, obsession and a great deal of sex! It's a gritty read! I won't reveal too much more of the plot but needless to say you will find yourself racing through each chapter just wondering how it will all end. Just like her previous novel (Taunting the Dead), Watching Over You lends itself to being televised. But who would they cast as Ella?

I would like to thank Amazon publishing, the author and Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this remarkable thriller.

I had read book one in her previous series so was aware of the authors style of writing, however this book just blew me away.

I love how the chapters are just long enough that they leave you hanging so you need to read the next chapter, then the next, then the next until the hours have slipped by and you realise you just can't leave this book alone.

I'm going to be a stalker of this author and make sure I keep up with every book she writes! Yes! It was THAT good.

This book was chosen in a hurry for a holiday read. Big mistake. The characters were transparent and the storyline predictable. The author did not create any suspense which was surely the point of the whole story.

I am used to reading about sensitive subjects as the author covers quite a lot of them in her wonderful Estate series and Watching Over You certainly has quite a shocking one.

Charley has certainly suffered a sad loss and a year after her husband died in a tragic accident she moves into a flat looking forward to moving on.

Ella is certainly battling an horrific past. Right from the start it is obvious that Ella has issues, serious issues. Ella, due to her past, certainly is not a straight forward character. My feelings for her changed throughout the story.

Watching Over You certainly won't be a story for the faint hearted as it does make for some uncomfortable reading due to the nature of the story.

If like me, you are made of stronger stuff and like to be taken on a hair raising ride though, then look no further.

The author had me well and truly hooked from the start. I read this novel within a matter of a few hours. Think Single White Female and even then some. Ella is a truly disturbed individual and the further into the story I got the more on edge I felt. I wanted to grab Charley and tell her to get as far away from there as possible.

Mel Sherratt has created a powerful and hard hitting story that makes for a thrilling yet shocking read. A must read for fans of truly disturbing psychological thrillers.

Thank you kindly to Mel Sherratt for the advanced copy via netgalley.

Following the death of her husband and unborn child, Charley Belington sells the family home and bravely starts life over again. On moving into a new flat, she is befriended by her landlady, Ella, who seems like the perfect friend and confidante. But, unbeknownst to Charley, Ella is fighting her own dark and dirty demons as the fallout from a horrific childhood sends her spiraling down into madness ‒ and unspeakable obsessions.

Well first things first just LOOK at that cover. Brilliant. That had me nervous before I even read the first page - I stocked up on chocolate, ensured that my axe proof duvet was at the ready and a bit like going back to childhood and watching Dr Who from behind the sofa, I cautiously made my way into the story...

So. Ella. What a great character. God she's scary - so normal on the outside, at least at first glance, yet on the inside a complete psychopath. Ok, so she had a rubbish childhood- HORRIFIC - you should, I suppose, have some sympathy for her. And I guess I did - for a while..but this is cleverly written and has you wondering if she would still be an extremely dangerous person even if her formative years had been all rainbows and kittens. Sometimes evil is just that. So thats one side of this book and its compelling, totally frightening and utterly addictive.

Then you have Charley who is perfectly lovely - she has also suffered a tragedy, that being what puts her in the path of Ella in the first place as she tries to forge out a life for herself in unexpected and terrible circumstances.As fate would have it her very real chance at new happiness may be thwarted by the simple fact that she is accepting of Ella's manipulative friendship.
