Overview

Always Watching by Chevy Stevens

She helps people put their demons to rest.

But she has a few of her own…

In the lockdown ward of a psychiatric hospital, Dr. Nadine Lavoie is in her element. She has the tools to help people, and she has the desire—healing broken families is what she lives for. But Nadine doesn't want to look too closely at her own past because there are whole chunks of her life that are black holes. It takes all her willpower to tamp down her recurrent claustrophobia, and her daughter, Lisa, is a runaway who has been on the streets for seven years.

When a distraught woman, Heather Simeon, is brought into the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit after a suicide attempt, Nadine gently coaxes her story out of her—and learns of some troubling parallels with her own life. Digging deeper, Nadine is forced to confront her traumatic childhood, and the damage that began when she and her brother were brought by their mother to a remote commune on Vancouver Island. What happened to Nadine? Why was their family destroyed? And why does the name Aaron Quinn, the group's leader, bring complex feelings of terror to Nadine even today?

And then, the unthinkable happens, and Nadine realizes that danger is closer to home than she ever imagined. She has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most…and fight back, in Always Watching by Chevy Stevens.

Sometimes you can leave the past, but you can never escape.

"This was one tough book to put down…Highly recommended." —Suspense Magazine

I loved this book!  I am not one to write lengthy book reports so please don't expect that of my comments.  I received this book yesterday and i completed it by the next day.  It kept me interested and reading and i couldn't put it down.  It was written very well and was a page turner.  I have already recommended this book to others.

How did I ever overlook this author?  Chevy Stevens doesn't use fancy verbiage, but her constant flow of energy and fast-paced inertia keeps the reader fully engaged and reading until all hours of the night.  A truly suspenseful and stimulating book!

I've become a big fan of Chevy Stevens and would venture that this is her best yet.  Nadine, a therapist starts having flashbacks to her childhood of living on a commune in Victoria when a patient, who'd just left the commune, is admitted to the hospital after a suicide attempt. It took me a few chapters to get into it, but when I did I was hooked. Stevens expertly weaved the past history of the River Of Life commune with the present mystery of what Nadine's recently returned memories of living there meant. This is a hard thing to do and often confusing, but in Stevens talented hands the transitions are seamless. I would recommend this to anyone who likes psychological thrillers. Stevens family-driven thrillers go a step beyond run-for-your-life. Victoria Allman author of: SEAsoned: A Chef's Journey with Her Captain

Overall, a good suspense novel. You'll probably figure much of it out ahead, but an enjoyable nonetheless.

Not nearly as good as Still Missing, yet I stayed with it. I appreciated the methodical prose (hoping the author intended it to read like it was written by a very serious and thoughtful psychiatrist), but I think she could've picked up the pace a bit.

I read 'Still Missing' and then 'Never Knowing' also by Chevy Stevens and then read this book. This one is the story of the psychiatrist that the main characters in the other books are patients of. It was as full of suspense as the other two. I would however not recommend reading the 4th book 'The Other Side' because although it was only .99 on the Nook it was only about 25 pages I didn't think it was worth my time or money.
