Eyes on You by Kate White



Release Date - June 24, 2014

Kate White
Harper

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Former Cosmopolitan editor in chief, Kate White's been writing bestselling fiction novels for a number of years. If you haven't discovered her books, give them a try. Eyes on You is probably my favorite to date.

Robin Trainer is working her way up the ladder. She's co-anchor of a new television show and her new book is bringing in many sales. Despite all the good things happening in her life, someone has it out for her.

It starts as a threatening note and progresses to slashed book covers, a dead water beetle left in her coffee, a drugged brownie, and an ominous Barbie with its eyes scratched out. Robin suspects it is a jealous co-worker, but soon the tables turn and the powers that be decide that Robin is doing it to herself. She knows she's being framed, but no one seems to believe her. Not knowing who she can trust, Robin must figure out who wants her out the way.

I predicted who the culprit was early on, so that aspect of Eyes on You was not a surprise. Yet, even knowing who was behind everything, I was still addicted. The story moves at a fast pace, and I found myself eager to see Robin's reaction when she figured it out. I won't say this is a challenging mystery, but with a variety of interesting characters and relationships, I enjoyed every minute.
