"Kathryn Ellison’s life is nearly cut short when she is abducted and brutally assaulted in a case of mistaken identity. A mysterious light saves her life as one would-be killer flees and the other lets her go. When she meets Nick Lawson, the brother of the intended victim, at the courthouse, they both know they are meant to be together. The timing is not right, though, as Kathryn needs time to heal before she can be with anyone, especially a man who reminds her of everything that happened. Twenty years later, when Nick shows up at her door again, Kathryn realizes she needs to finally close all the doors she has left open and asks for some time. Over the next six days, she burns the letters she received from one of the men who abducted her, lets go of her first love, and faces a growing threat – the other man involved still considers that unfinished business and is coming back to finish the job he started. The Watcher is a story about understanding what one needs to hold on to in life, what one has to let go, and the unseen forces that help along the way.

This book is really interesting, because it's narrated by a "person/thing" that you have no idea who it is. I guessed numerous times and each time I was wrong, it's not until the very end you get to know who it is.
It does take a while to really get into the book, but it really is worth persevering, as you will not be disappointed. You may end up guessing the odd thing but the story is complex enough you never quite know what will happen next. It's one of those books where you do have to concentrate on what is going on, as there are many layers to the story which all relate to one another.
I know I couldn't figure out why one character was in the book until closer to the end when their part of the story was told.
Stars out of 5: A very solid 4. The only thing that let it down was the beginning, as it wasn't an easy story to get immersed into. However when you get past that point its well worth the read.

It was a blah day on Wednesday with rain and fog for most of the day. I just didn't feel well at all, and I even had the fire on in the morning and wore a thick sweatshirt all day, so I must be sick as I never feel the cold. I actually must be really sick as the kids were coming up Easter Sunday and I called and cancelled, as I have very little energy and I don't want them picking up what I have.
This is so unlike me to get a ear/nose and throat thing again so soon after the last dose I got. I must be run down or something?
