Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Kate White comes a riveting psychological suspense in which a media star must battle a malevolent enemy who may be disturbingly close to her.

After losing her on-air job two years ago, television host Robin Trainer has fought her way back and now she’s hotter than ever. With her new show climbing in the ratings and her first book a bestseller, she’s being dubbed a media double threat.

But suddenly, things begin to go wrong. Small incidents at first: a nasty note left in her purse; her photo shredded. But the obnoxious quickly becomes threatening when the foundation the makeup artist uses burns Robin’s face. It wasn’t an accident—someone had deliberately doctored with the product.

An adversary with a dark agenda wants to hurt Robin, and the clues point to someone she works with every day. While she frantically tries to put the pieces together and unmask this hidden foe, it becomes terrifyingly clear that the person responsible isn’t going to stop until Robin loses everything that matters to her . . . including her life.

Editorial Reviews

People
Praise for The Sixes:“A coed’s gone missing at leafy Lyle College, and visiting prof Phoebe Hall is asking too many questions. A nifty spine-tingler.”
Nylon Magazine
“Cleverly woven with comic dialogue and sexy dates, the narrative mixes the spookiness of Twin Peaks with the scandal of Gossip Girl, plus a dash of Ian McEwan-esque drama. . . . A page-turner.”
South Florida Sun Sentinel
“A superior mix of romantic suspense and pure mystery while avoiding clichés. . . . An academic mystery, a women’s novel and an insular village mystery with the private school standing in for a small town.”
James GrippandoN.Y. Times bestselling authorJames Grippando
“Top-tier psychological suspense with thrills aplenty, more than enough mystery to keep you turning the pages late into the night, and a sharp protagonist you won’t soon forget. I highly recommend it.”

When a book-launch party turns ugly, B-list celebrity Robin Trainer has to find out who's targeting her in this latest from former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief White.Robin is all aglow: A friend has thrown a fabulous launch party for her new book, and she's the center of attention. Along with a sure-fire best-seller, Robin can lay claim to a reinvigorated career as host of a tabloid-TV show and a fresh start after the dissolution of her marriage. Only thing is, someone keeps spoiling her day by putting nasty notes in her handbag, tearing the covers of her books, leaving battered Barbie dolls on her desk, putting annoying chemicals in her foundation and leaving a drugged brownie for her to ingest. Robin is just annoyed at first, but as the assailant's moves escalate, she finds herself weeding through her friends, suitors and work associates to try to figure out who's doing this to her before something worse—even deadly—happens. White tries hard to make readers care about the gorgeous, alluring and brilliantly successful Robin, but it's rough going. The cast is full of stock characters: publicists; an agent; a careless intern; a drop-dead handsome co-star who wants to be more than that to Robin; and an evil stepmother who made Robin's childhood miserable. None of them ever develops into more than a cardboard cutout; and White—who seems obsessed with clichés—peppers her prose with insider talk that, rather than providing atmosphere and a touch of reality, only serves to make the story less relatable and a little too glib.Readers who like their reading "lite" may enjoy this glimpse into the world of cable TV, but thriller fans won't find anything compelling in these cookie-cutter characters and dull, by-the-numbers plot.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“This is a must have summer read and an enjoyable who-dun-it.”
USA Today

EYES ON YOU, the newest novel from Kate White is a suspense novel that keeps you hooked until the very last page.”
Lisa Gardner
Sharp as a stiletto! White captures the cut-throat world of entertainment TV where the latest star should trust no one if she’s to build her show...or save her very life.”
James Grippando
“Top-tier psychological suspense with thrills aplenty, more than enough mystery to keep you turning the pages late into the night, and a sharp protagonist you won’t soon forget. I highly recommend it.”
Booklist
“Former Cosmo editor White, seems to thrive in an atmosphere of glitz, as she produces increasing levels of suspense and danger in what is her most compelling and snappiest stand-alone yet.”
Lisa Scottoline
“Set in the glamorous world of television, Kate White’s Eyes On You wraps you in suspense and keeps you pinned to the page. I couldn’t put it down.”
Readers Digest on Eyes On You
“A deliciously dishy treat.”
Los Angeles Times
“This thriller set in the New York media world, from the former editor of Cosmopolitan, features a TV host who must figure out why someone is stalking and undermining her in increasingly dangerous ways.”

Smart keep me guessing who done it. I enjoyed it very much!

The word ‘sharp’ is always used when it comes to this amazing author’s writing, and this new roller-coaster thriller is no exception. In fact, like a great wine, it seems that Kate White’s writing is aging to perfection. This tale surrounds a definite career woman working in a truly glamorous, not to mention, backbiting and mean, business. Robin Trainer has dealt with some pretty serious issues to re-enter that job market; from a divorce that practically annihilated her to losing her on-air job after dealing with multiple attacks from an unknown colleague. But Kate has risen above all that. She knows this is the dog-eat-dog-world of the media, and the personalities are hit just as hard as the subjects they’re covering. This time around, however, Robin is not only back, she’s a true star. Working as cohost of a nightly entertainment program that is huge as far as popularity is concerned, Robin can also add ‘hot new writer’ to her resume because of the bestselling novel that she penned, selling to the masses in droves. In other words, Robin’s future is certainly looking sunny. So what happens when everything is going right? Exactly. And when things begin to go wrong for Robin, they go from bad to worse fairly quickly. Robin has rivals; after all, if you’re going to be hot in the industry you are going to meet up with others climbing the ladder and using you as one of the rungs. But there is a difference between rivalry and downright evil – which is what Robin soon faces. Dolls with eyes gouged out, threatening notes placed in her own handbag – Robin is dealing with far more than just an up-and-comer who wants to make it on television. In fact, as things worsen, it looks like the predator may just be someone she works closely with...causing far more than just sleep to be lost. If the rival meets their goal, Robin has a very good shot at not only losing her newfound career, but also her life. Again...intelligence, twists, turns, fast-paced action, and the feeling that the author knows everything regarding the topic she is speaking about to her readers. Kate White has put forward a character that is believable and able to be challenged and supported by fans, and the ending is one that you will not see coming! Quill says: Kate White suspense can NOT be missed!

Great summer read…I enjoyed the characters

Robin is a tv personality and is having some pretty cruel things happen to her and there are a few people who may want her out of commission.  She has a few ideas as to who may want her out of her job, but there may be some others who don't enjoy her on air.  The bad things escalate and finally others are involved to solve the mystery. Even though Robin was leaning towards a few people, I had my eye on someone the entire time and I ended up being right.  Sometimes I like to know before the victim does, but this time felt like I knew way too early and wasn't convinced otherwise through the happenings in the book.  I wanted something to sneak up behind me and point me a different way.  I still enjoyed this book, but would have loved things to come together a little less obviously.
