    1. My reviews can also be seen at deesradreadsandreviews.wordpreMy legs were really bothering me yesterday and so I spent a lot of time with my feet up reading I was so into this book, that I ended up staying up late to finish it Pregnant and alone, thirty three year old Edie has a lot on her mind So when the doorbell rings and she opens the door one day, she is completely surprised when she sees who s standing on the other side It s her former best friend, Heather They haven t seen each other in a [...]

    2. The night hovers And watchful eyes do peer into windows Nothing you have done and nothing that you will ever do will go unnoticed.Edie steps onto the page with heavy laden feet You see, she s been a hard working waitress for some time taking on extra shifts for extra money The swollen, achy feet can attest to that, including the fact that she is pregnant and alone Another unmentionable secret to add to the pile of lies looming in the background The baby s father is married and unaware Edie prefe [...]

    3. i came across a copy of this arc at work a while back, before there were too many reviews of it up on here i couldn t tell, from an admittedly cursory assessment, whether it was creepy psychological suspense or a heartwarming story of female friendships overcoming past betrayals and reigniting when one was in need of support i decided to pass on it, because i didn t need another book to read, especially one that i was already iffy about and then once people started reviewing it, and it became [...]

Find all my reviews on my blog thesuspenseisthrillingmeDate Read 08 06 16Pub Date 08 02 164 STARSBeautiful, creative, a little wild Edie was the kind of girl who immediately caused a stir when she walked into your life And she had dreams back then but it didn t take long for her to learn that things don t always turn out the way you want them to.Now, at thirty three, Edie is working as a waitress, pregnant and alone And when she becomes overwhelmed by the needs of her new baby and sinks into a b [...]

    5. Before.Edie is the new girl at the High School in the small town of Fremton She has natural beauty and is naturally well liked by other students She is socially appropriateuld be considered popular But is comfortable enough in her skin to mix with all types of friends She doesn t measure who she is by having to hang out with the cool kids Heather, is actually one of the first students Edie meets Heather feels lucky to be talking to such a beautiful new girl in school she makes it her mission to [...]

    6. This was a pretty great read The author twisted and skewed this frequently used plot line into something different and kind of unexpected The story literally opens with Edie answering the door to her past Heather Friends in high school, something horrible happened that ripped them apart and they haven t seen each other since Immediately, you can feel the awkward tension and the uncomfortable feeling lurking in the air Edie is creeped out by Heather and who can blame her What kind of person just [...]

    7. Oh well what can I say about Watching Edie I got to the end and sat there thinking What do I do now Look psychological thrillers are a dime a dozen these days because its a popular genre for good reason and because there are so many themes to explore all under that heading Some are truly awful, some are mediocre, some are intriguingly popcorn to read and some are brilliant Then you have ones like Watching Edie which is brilliant but also reminds you that these things can still surprise you Rip y [...]

    8. For a debut book, this was really good At age 16, Edie and Heather are best friends Until something happens Seventeen years later, with neither of their lives as they had envisioned them, they meet again I thought both characters were very well written and very believable At times, I trusted Edie and other times, Heather And then Heather would creep me out, and Edie would seem so cruel I liked them and then I didn t like them With the ending came clarity of hindsight and feelings of sadness and [...]

    13. Actual rating 3.5 5 stars.I received this on a read to review basis from NetGalley Thank you to the author, Camilla Way, and the publisher,Harper Collins, for this opportunity.Watching Edie has one of the most interesting narrative structures I have ever read in a book and immediately grabbed my attention The segments located in the present are directed through Edie s perspective, whilst the past segments are addressed through Heather s Edie is the stereotypical bad girl short skirts, overly mad [...]

    14. 3.5 I expected The format was great, Before and After, with alternating points of view between Heather Before and Edie After The story moved along over the years from high school and some unspeakable events , which are hinted at with constant teases and references, to many years later.It s those events that I expected from The struggles both girls had with their families and the great difference in their natures was well described Heather is dowdy, frumpy and unpopular Edie is sexy, colourful [...]

    15. 3.5 Stars A story revolving around an unhealthy friendship The chapters alternate between Heather s perspective as a teenager and Edie s perspective as an adult A traumatic event destroyed their friendship, but seventeen years later Heather reinserts herself into Edie s life I ll look after you Don t worry I ll always look after you After 33 years old Edie is shocked when Heather shows up at her door The past trauma they shared comes rushing back to her What could Heather possibly want after wha [...]

    16. Update 9 19 16 I feel the need to increase my rating on this book because it keeps popping into my mind It was a pretty powerful ending My apologies in advance, this is going to be short and sweet as we re currently on vacation This story had a lot of potential in my opinion, but it didn t deliver for me We are told early on that there is a big secret, a major event that happened involving the two main characters, so we are left trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together I truly have been t [...]

    17. Talk about dysfunctional people Not a character here with the exception of an infant is without flaws, most of them dead serious And now that I think about it, I m far from sure that baby girl will turn out okay.Central to this psychological drama are one time friends Edie and Heather the former is beautiful and popular, the latter, not so much As the story begins, they ve long since gone their separate ways Edie now in her mid 30s is living alone, working as a waitress and pregnant The father i [...]

    19. 3.5 stars.This is a quick, compulsive read and a better than average thriller What makes it stand out is the characterization it s interesting to see both the main characters Edie and Heather in the past and present, and from each other s point of view I especially thought Edie s postpartum depression was well written, as well as Heather s home life.I devoured it quickly, and will look for Way s next book.I received this review copy from the publisher on NetGalley Thanks for the opportunity to r [...]

    20. If like me you love a psychological thriller with unlikeable and disturbed characters, a dark secret lurking in the background lots of twists and turns and a tense and gripping page turner then this should be your next read 4.5 stars

    21. I had seen a lot of positive feedback about this book and I m always keen to discover new authors, so in I went And I was not disappointed.Watching Edie is a story of two girls with a shared past The story presents itself in two narratives We have the present told from Edie s point of view and in the past from Heather s point of view Edie and Heather meet when they are young teenagers almost embarking on adulthood Heather has had a somewhat repressed kind of upbringing with her strict parents Ed [...]

    22. I don t know why I didn t get to this book sooner I certainly wish I had of done It s a great premise, fabulous plot and twists that kept me spinning.The thing is, the author drips enough that you need to keep reading and sniffing where the final trail leads you It s a guessing game what happened so you re shouting come on, what was it.Edie is new in the area Happy in her own skin A social kind of person, fits in with anyone, pretty too and attracts attention although she s not aware of this and [...]

    25. Oh My God Watching Edie has simply left me speechless, I found it to be utterly gripping from the first page to the last I ve read a huge number of psychological thrillers some of them have been good, others mediocre but Watching Edie is in a class all on its own this has to be one of the best books I ve read this year It comes with the tag line The most unsettling psychological thriller you ll read this year, and it certainly deserves to use this line, but I would also add characters who seriou [...]
