Always Watching by Chevy Stevens


A haunting, terrifying read, but oh so good.

You will be on the edge of your seat as the fear and tension oozes from the pages of ALWAYS WATCHING.  Don't read this book when you are alone or in a room without curtains.  Someone may be watching.

What started out to be a patient/doctor relationship moved to more sinister waters as Nadine's treatment of Heather brought back repressed horrors from her own childhood.  Could Nadine’s treating a patient really bring back memories of her own? Nadine was beginning to have flashbacks about things that took place at the same commune her patient had been in.  The same commune that may have caused her claustrophobia and her fear of water.

The basis of ALWAYS WATCHING was the flashbacks. The flashbacks will keep you wondering what Nadine was going to find or who she was going to run into from her past as she investigated the commune that her mother and her brother were a part of when she was thirteen.

What she began to find out and remember was not pleasant.  Was this investigation a wise decision or one that would make her childhood fears surface more and cause more trouble for her especially since she was doing all of this on her own?

ALWAYS WATCHING was tense and gripping.  It dealt with mental issues, mind games, and brainwashing.  Quite frightening and disturbing.   

I had a difficult time putting the book down. I haven't read a thriller for a while nor have I ever read a book by Chevy Stevens. 

If you enjoy edge-of-your seat plots, you won't be disappointed in ALWAYS WATCHING.  5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.

I think I might just try this one ... repressed memories of some sort seem to be a running theme in her stories, though, don't they?

This is the first of her books I have read so I can't really comment.

It was pretty intense for me.

Have a good day.
