A fear-induced split-second decision goes terribly wrong, altering the fate of three strangers.
It’s New Year’s Eve. Shae Wilmont, the adored celebrity host of IShop—a popular shopping site—is ready to reclaim her life. Her stalker has been caught. But en route to a party, a harrowing encounter lands her in the wrong place at the wrong time. She panics. And trusts her gut. It’s a devastating mistake.
Only one person knows where she ends up. It’s where no one can find her.
Shae’s stunned fans quickly galvanize to track her down. Yet the charismatic Shae they know, who delivers digital intimacy to viewers who’ll buy anything she sells, off camera is an enigma—private and strangely insecure—unable to let anyone get close. When startling personal secrets are exposed during the investigation, the paradox of Shae begins to unravel.
In this dark psychological suspense, the lives of three strangers collide irreversibly. Honey, a displaced Southern girl with a painful past, is fiercely protective of her friends at the expense of her own safety, derailing her new life in California. Creepy Lawrence, a Detective Bureau fast-tracker with a penchant for latex gloves and a perverse obsession with Shae. And Shae, with millions of fake friends but hardly a real one. All three are hiding something, but only two of them are lying.
This suspenseful page-turner bares our assumptions of strangers. Who we believe without judgment and who we judge without believing. A story about privilege, family, identity, the need for belonging and the destruction caused by secrets.
How can you trust your instincts when they turn out to be wrong?
I just finished Following You by @evanatielo and boy my head is spinning. Talk about having me turning the pages and in suspense.
The book starts out with alternating chapters from 3 different characters. It’s kind of confusing at the beginning what each of these characters have in common with each other, but once the story merges the tale becomes a page-turner.
There’s Shae, who is a famous host on a TV shopping channel, who most of the story revolves around, she’s being stalked and is frightened for her life. Then we have Honey, who works at a diner, has money troubles and a sick mom at home and is trying to make ends meet. And then we have Lawrence, who is obsessed with Shae, but seems to have some kind of connection with the investigation of her stalker. All of these three stories suddenly merge together to a book that kept me anxiously turning the pages to find out what the heck was going on and who the stalker was. I finished it in one sitting and like I said, I am still reeling after finishing.
This is Eva Natielo’s second novel and follow up to her successful 2014 psychological thriller The Memory Box. It was a fast read and certainly kept my attention. If you like a book that keeps you guessing, this one is for you.
Thank you to Eve Lesko Natiello, Kate Rock from Kate Rock Book Tours and Fine Line Publishing for my gifted copy of this book for my honest and unbiased opinion for review.
