This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.3 StarsI am always looking for something out of the ordinary to read so I like to try new authors quite frequently I have seen Joy Fielding s books but had not yet read anything by this author so I thought it was time to check out her writing since I love a good mystery I am glad that I made the decision to read this book because I was completely pulled into this story.I want to warn other readers right away that this story deals with the sub [...]
Joy Fielding is a name that I recognize from books at my mother s place I have browsed her bookshelves many times during the years However, I haven t read a Joy Fielding before I read this book And funny enough, neither has my mom I guess we both like to hoard books Someone Is Watching is a thrilling and chilling book about a woman who is attacked and raped, never seeing the man s face, just remembering small details about him She is struggling after the assault to return to a normal life, and j [...]
2.5 out of 5 stars A private investigator is raped and her world is turned upside down as she tries to figure out who did this to her and why.Meanwhile, the reader is treated to an unending stream of consciousness internal dialog Bailey Carpenter completely falls apart, becomes a prisoner in her condo and sees every man as her rapist and a threat She s a total mess and it got old quickly Bailey stalks a man in another apartment with her binoculars, deals with her brother, Heath a total loser , h [...]
My favorite and most memorable scary and suspenseful book ever read was Joy Fielding s Whispers and Lies Since then, I ve read other Fielding books that haven t lived up to that one, until now.Filled with plenty of mystery and intrigue, this book is my definition of a perfect suspense novel I loved the Rear Window movie feel that just added a little uniqueness to the story But most importantly, as all of the clues were being laid out to me, I was never able to come to a conclusion about the who [...]
Thank you to Random House and Netgalley for an opportunity to read an advance copy of Someone is Watching This book was a solid 4 stars until the very last few pages, when it took a dive for me because of what felt like a very improbable and unnecessary resolution But I will still give it 4 stars because I was thoroughly enjoying Fielding s latest book until the end A few years ago I went through a binge of reading most of Fielding s books While they are light on character development and litera [...]
I can t believe that Joy Fielding has written a book a year for the last 14 years but this has been the first one I have ever read I have often seen her book See Jane Run pop up on people s all time favourites lists so I m glad I have finally had the chance to see what all the fuss is about And on the whole, I did enjoy my first experience of a Joy Fielding thriller.I do feel that the first thing I have to mention is that the blurb mentions an attack but the reason that Bailey does hide herself [...]
Whine, cry, be hysterical, repeat I expect from a Joy Fielding book.
I havent read a Joy Fielding book before Not sure why seeing as how she s bang in my comfort zone and is an established and well respected author but I guess thats the way it is sometimes You really CAN T read everything although hey, I m giving it my best shot I ll read though.Someone is Watching was novel of 2 halves for me Going in expecting a psychological thriller of the usual variety I found that it was both that and a story about the aftermath of Rape Bailey is a strong, independent woma [...]
Very good book I have read this author s books for the last 5 6 years and have never been disappointed This one didn t disappoint, either I did guess rather early who did what to who when and where but the clues were cleverly in front of my face.No review as such just a good read for me.
OH MON DIEU OH MON DIEU Ma r action durant les 20 derni res pages Mon avis Joy Fielding est une auteure que je n avais encore jamais lu, mais la 4e de couverture m a beaucoup tent e, je me suis donc lanc dans Dis moi que tu m aimes.La 4e propose un thriller prenant Comment ne pas tre intrigu Un r cit haletant et passionnant jusqu la fin Malgr les apparences, on s attache tr s vite Bailey qui voit sa vie devenir un vrai calvaire apr s son agression Elle pense sombrer dans la folie et voir son agr [...]
Una novela redonda cargada de suspense Me ha gustado much simo, ha conseguido que no me separe del libro en ning n momento.Es cierto cuando dicen que tiene un aire a la pel cula La ventana indiscreta, algunas escenas son muy parecidas y me han encantado.
One of my favorite things about receiving ARCs are the envious looks I end up getting while I m reading on the subway Partial Joking aside, I was thrilled to get this book through First Reads program And yes, I did parade it around on public transit but the main reason for that was the fact that I just couldn t put it down I was using any opportunity to get through a few pages, find out what happens next Bailey Carpenter s family is complicated So she likes to keep all other parts of her life s [...]
1,5 Sterne Oh Mann, war das ein Murks Bailey ist der nervigste Mensch aller Zeiten, aber ihre Nichte Jade ist ihr dicht auf den Fersen Erwartet die Autorin wirklich, eine pubertierende, TrashTV s chtige G re wie diese sympathisch wirken lassen zu k nnen Naja, hat nicht funktioniertUnd wie Bailey immerzu aufgeschrien hat Diese eine Phrase ist mir schon nach einem Bruchteil des Buches unfassbar auf den Geist gegangen Allgemein fand ich das ganze Thema der Vergewaltigung unfassbar schlecht aufgegri [...]

I didn t exactly love this book, but I didn t hate it either It s just not the normal page turner that I am used to reading Bailey Carpenter is a smart savvy private investigator at the law offices of Holden Cunning and Kravitz The warm night air a gloved hand covers her mouth and a pillow case is pulled over her face Bailey is raped But has she been raped by Roland Peterson a man who she was spying on Could he have been watching her keeping track of Bailey s movements
I received a copy from Netgalley, In exchange for an honest review This was an okay read, but it wasn t as good as it looked.It started off okay, and the ending was pretty good, but the rest of it felt quite slow to me, and there were moments that dragged slightly because of it It wasn t a bad read though.I will be reading books from this author in the future, as I already own a few of her other books I just hope they re better than this one.
Bailey trabaja en un bufet de abogados pero parte de su trabajo consta de investigar a las personas para ganar sus casos Es por eso que un d a se encontraba escondida detr s de unos arbustos vigilando a un padre que hab a sido demandado por no pagar la manutenci n de su hijo Sin percatarse, alguien lleg por detr s y la someti , una agresi n brutal y sin escr pulos que la dejar a marcada para siempre y que la llevar a a escuchar Dime que me quieres cada que alg n hombre hablaba con ella No pudo v [...]
I confess it has been several years since I have read a novel by author Joy Fielding Really enjoyed her earlier work THE DEEP END in particular but found some of her successive releases to be weak and leaning towards romance thriller than mystery thriller.Happy to proclaim that her first novel for Random House entitled SOMEONE IS WATCHING is a real winner and one I did not want to end Bailey Carpenter seems to have it all on the surface A job as a special investigator with a hotshot Miami law f [...]
The plot started out well with the rape and developed fairly well with the aftermath of paranoia and anxiety After that, it got fairly predictable and or ridiculous Character development was somewhat Jekyll and Hydish although I suppose that was part of the suspense, but for me it fell flat And the ending was horrible, just horrible It made no sense, at all Not as to motive or means or opportunity, really.Another part of the plot that made no sense was the lack of use of available technology Whe [...]
We meet Bailey Carpenter just before she s attacked She s living a pretty charmed life as an investigator for a firm of lawyers Although she s lost her parents, her wealthy father bought her an apartment and left his fortune to Bailey and her brother Heath much to the disdain of his five previous children In fact, the only blip in Bailey s life is the fact her half siblings are contesting her father s will although she s very comfortably off, so not that concerned.She s keeping an eye on someone [...]
This really only squeezes a 4 as in my opinion it s a 3.5 which is still a respectable score Bailey Carpenter, young, rich and beautiful, works as an investigator for a Miami law firm One night, on a job, she is brutally raped, which brings back the anxiety attacks she d suffered when her mother, then her father, died She accuses practically every man she sees of being the rapist, which leads to the police thinking her flaky and unreliable But luckily her sister Claire, and Claire s daughter Jad [...]

I received this in a First Reads giveaway After many fits and starts in the career choices department Bailey Carpenter has settled on being a private detective for an elite Miami law firm She excels at her job and importantly she really enjoys it well most of the time she could do without trying to catch errant spouses and deadbeat dads It is on just such an assignment that the unthinkable happens Bailey is on surveillance when suddenly she is attacked from behind, a pillowcase pulled over her [...]

If you re reading Joy Fielding, there s no way you ll confuse her work with that of, say, Leo Tolstoy, but this book just wasn t up to her usual page turning standards And before I go any further, let s remember that I m reviewing a work of fiction, not criticizing a real person for irritating me with her recovery process.A young private investigator survives a brutal sexual assault and we are taken along with her through the aftermath as she begins to put herself back together and tries to figu [...]

Bailey Carpenter is a private investigator who is very good at her job But late one night, while watching a house, she is brutally beaten and raped Devastated, and with her whole life turned upside down, Bailey refuses to leave her apartment and is suffering from PTSD and panic attacks When her estranged half sister, Claire, and her daughter start coming around to help take care of her, Bailey begins to get her strength back and decides to start investigating the attack herself After several fal [...]
Joy Fielding delivered another great novel of suspense I did enjoy this book, although I have to say that it was difficult for me to become immersed in main character Bailey and her woes DO NOT get me wrong, it was extremely awful that she was sexually assaulted However, many women are victims of similar crimes and don t have an inheritance and a luxury condo to fall back on as they heal Other than the spunky character of Jade, Bailey s step niece, Fielding s characters weren t very likeable Bey [...]
This book is just not very good at all Trying to incorporate a rape into a mystery just doesn t work The character is traumatized and reclusive and emotionally damaged, as one would be But it just is too upsetting to really try to spin into a thriller It isn t thrilling and the big reveal isn t very exciting, as there are few suspects so the culprit wasn t very hard to guess If I wanted to read about how messed up a sexual assault victim feels, I d have sought out a totally different kind of boo [...]
