One Step Behind by Lauren North
Release Date - September 1, 2020
Jenna is a busy doctor in an ER department. She sees many patients during a shift before returning home to her husband and children. Something more concerning has her attention lately. She has a stalker.
Her stalker is leaving her creepy gifts and sending ominous emails. Police are not turning up anything. When her stalker enters her home to leave her a gift, Jenna become even more frightened.
Soon, the same stalker she's seen taking photos of her and her family is brought into the ER. She has the power to save his life or end it. As a doctor she knows she has to save his life, but the photos she finds on his phone solidify her need to get answers as to who he is and why he's so obsessed.
One Step Behind has a strong creep factor. I think my one complaint is that I figured out who the stalker was pretty early on. I also nailed another part of the story that was meant to be a big surprise, but I thought it was predictable.
I usually hate figuring things out early, but it didn't bother me this time. I was so intrigued by the mystery as to the stalker's goal that I was hooked.
