You’re back home after four years working abroad, new husband in tow.

You’re keen to find a place of your own. But for now you’re crashing in your big brother’s spare room.

That’s when you meet the man next door.

He’s the head teacher at the local school. Twice your age. Extraordinarily attractive. You find yourself watching him.

All the time.

But you never dreamed that your innocent crush might become a deadly obsession.

Or that someone is watching you.








Excellent First Class Read!    Stars 5


Ooooh, this is soooo good! From first to last, I’ve been riveted . . .

Joey Mullen returns home after working in sunnier climes for several years, bringing her brand new husband. With no home of their own yet, Joey’s brother Jack insists they come to stay with him and his wife in their beautiful home in an upmarket suburb of Bristol. As Joey becomes drawn to a neighbour and begins to keep an eye on him, it transpires that she’s not the only one doing some secret spotting. Who else is Watching You?

This is a packed read! Beginning with the discovery of a body, we then go back in time to discover what led up to this death. There are several stories intertwined and cleverly woven together and not a minute wasted! I did work out the guilty party – only just ahead of the identity being revealed in the book – but I didn’t fully get to grips with the whys and wherefores. There are lots of possibilities in this beautifully written novel; several suspects and I didn’t really slot it all into place until the very final page which left me with a definite chill creeping up my spine! An excellent, first class read and one I cannot recommend highly enough. I’m thrilled and delighted to have another by this author in my tbr list, and I’m now desperate to get to it! A solid five golden stars and a highly recommended from me!

Meet the Author


Lisa JewellI’ve been here in one form or another for A Very Long Time Indeed. My first book, Ralph’s Party, came out in 1998, when I was still a young person and when some of you may not yet have been born. Since then I have written and published another fourteen books, from the ‘curry and flatmates’ novels of the nineties and noughties like Thirtynothing, One Hit Wonder, A Friend of the Family and Vince & Joy, to more serious ‘themed’ novels like After The Party (marriage), The Making of Us (sperm donation) and The House We Grew Up In (hoarding) to my more recent domestic thrillers, like The Third Wife, The Girls, I Found You and Then She Was Gone.

I live in London with my husband, two daughters, two hairy cats, two nervous guinea pigs and a very lovely auburn dog. I write every day, a minimum of one thousand words, in a cafe, with no access to the internet, in two to three hour sessions. It’s a very good life.
