Overview

I'm Watching You by Karen Rose

I Know Their Crimes. Star prosecutor Kristen Mayhew has a dangerous secret admirer. He seems to know her every thought, her every move. He sends her letters. And he kills the criminals she herself is powerless to stop. I Hunt Down the Guilty. This avenger even knows Kristen's deepest secret-the one that has kept her from surrendering her heart to Abe Reagan, the police detective sworn to protect her. Like Kristen, Reagan is haunted by the loss of something precious that can never be regained. But in the shadow of a calculating serial killer, the two turn to each other and dare to rediscover passion...even as the messages and vicious murders continue. Even as the killer's thirst for retribution makes Kristen a target for murder.

Kristen Mayhew has a secret admirer of the worst kind...a serial killer who dispenses his form of justice to the criminals she was unsuccessful in prosecuting. She's an assistant State's Attorney in Chicago and those defendants in her losing efforts are being murdered. Homicide Detective Abe Reagan, along with his new partner, is assigned to the case and he has an immediate attraction to Kristen, as does she for him. But, they both have serious issues from their pasts that stand in the way to their forming a relationship. It's an interesting case, one that tests your concept of justice as those being murdered have behaved deplorably in life. These aren't sympathetic characters but they, too, deserve to have the killer atone for their deaths. The public reactions are also predictable and those who were unsuccessfully tried by Kristen now live in fear. Her life is threatened and Abe becomes part of her protection, which serves to accelerate their romance. This is another solid story that meets the expectations set by the previous two books in the series. The cast of characters has dimension...the "good guys" are extremely likable and the "baddies" are deliciously evil, which really heightens the tension between defining good and evil behavior. This is such a good story, even though I correctly pinpointed the killer early on. Rose is good at weaving romance and suspense and I'm anxious to continue with the next book in the series. You'll want to settle back and just immerse yourself in this suspenseful mystery and enjoy the writing.

I've not been disappointed in any book by Ms. Rose and I'm watching you was no exception. Karen Rose is pure genius. This was a well written, solid story. The interaction between the characters was believable. The chemistry between Abe and Kristen jumped off the pages. I loved this book and couldn't put it down.

Karen Rose is the best romantic suspence writer I have ever had the honor of reading. The plots face paced. The romance is wonderful. The storylines are unique. I just can't say enough. I'm Watching You is a great book. If you're reading this to get some insite on weather or not to read it...Read it! You won't be disapointed. Just, don't read You Can't Hide, first. I did. It will give away the ending to I'm Watching You...Even knowing the ending in advance, I still loved this book.

I am a single mom who works a full and a part time job so I don't have alot of time to read, but I have to say I made time! Not one boring page is in this book. I've been a very avid reader since I was about seven, and I think this was the best book I have EVER read. If you like romantic suspense books pick this one up you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to read Karen Rose's other books. I think I have a new favorite author.

I have now read all three of Karens books and loved everyone of them. I'm watching you was great I read it in three days (keep in mind I am a single mom of a four year old and work full time). I will now buy any book that has her name on it. Which you should do also because once you read one of her books you wont want to give it back.

This book was amazing I was absolutley glued from the start. I have read all three of Karens books and she just keeps getting better (which is hard to believe she could get any better) I will now buy any book with her name on it. Start with Don't Tell but do read ALL her books.

IF YOU LIKE A GOOD SUSPENSEFUL NOVEL YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY BE GLUED TO THE PAGES OF THIS BOOK. IT IS ONE OF THE BEST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE NOVELS I HAVE EVER READ. HER STYLE OF WRITING WAS PERFECT. IT WAS NOT TOO WORDY EVEN THOUGH IT IS ALMOST 500 PAGES LONG. THE SUSPENSE PULLS YOU ALONG FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. I WOULD HAVE ENJOYED MORE TWISTS IN THE PLOT, BUT IT DID NOT DISSAPOINT ME. I WAS STILL HIGHLY IMPRESSED BY THE WAY THE STORY ROLLED WITHOUT STOPPING. MY ONLY WARNING IS THAT YOU NEED TO START READING THIS BOOK EARLY IN THE MORNING AND PLAN TO READ THROUGH THE LATE NIGHT. IT IS A DIFFICULT ONE TO PUT DOWN EVEN TO EAT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE WHO TRULY ENJOYS A GREAT ROMANTIC SUSPENSE. IT IS BY FAR KR'S BEST BOOK YET. I FEEL SORRY FOR SOME OF THE BIG NAME AUTHORS OUT THERE, BECAUSE IF KAREN ROSE CONTINUES TO WRITE LIKE THIS, THEY WILL SURELY GET A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY.

This book started off slow for me. I put it down twice because I had a hard time getting into it. But on the third try I stuck it out and I am so happy I did. After the the first few chapters it started to get interesting and then I couldn't put it down. I loved the romance between Abe and Kristen and Abe's family. It was suspenseful and a lot of action. This is the second book by ths author I have read and I am looking forward to reading her other books. She writes romance/suspense very well. I enjoy her writing.

I¿m Watching You delivers a suspenseful tale of murder, who done it and a no holds bar romance. Kristen Mayhew a leading prosecutor in Chicago makes a grizzly discovery late one night in the trunk of her car. Seems Kristen has an avenger, someone who is bringing to justice those that got away with their crimes. She turns to the police for help and protection. Abe Reagan gets Kristen¿s case. He is back as a detective after being undercover for 5 years. Abe went undercover to forget about a deeply personal tragedy. As more dead bodies pile up at Kristen¿s door, others start to threaten her. Abe is drawn to Kristen¿s quiet strength. They are both two injured souls in search of something to bring them joy. Kristen has to let down her guard around Abe. She didn¿t have the best family life growing up and meeting Abe¿s family makes her yearn. Karen Rose excels again with her writing career. I¿m watching you will have you glued to your seat. It will make you jump in terror and sigh with the love and tenderness.

Late at night and seemingly alone, Chicago prosecutor Kristen Mayhew waits for the elevator when a stranger arrives and inadvertently frightens her. The newcomer introduces himself as Detective Abe Reagan recently transferred from five years undercover on drugs to homicide. They ride down together and he escorts her to her car only to see she has a flat. Abe goes to change the tire, but the opened trunk reveals a corpse and several boxes.............................. The police arrive including Abe¿s new partner Mia Mitchell, who just lost her partner and fears that Abe has a death wish. As the boxes are methodically opened, letters with articles of clothing are in each. The letters are addressed to Kristen informing her that a degenerate has been killed, where the body is buried, and personal information on her home improvement efforts. As Abe and Mia accompanied by Kristen track the evidence, each wonders if one of their kind has gone rogue and become an avenging serial killer. While the inquiries lead from one grave to another, Abe and Kristen begin to fall in love, but he fears commitment having failed to be there even when a loved one died............................. This exciting police procedural romance emphasizes the tense suspense in which everyone trying to stop the avenger actually feels the ¿victims¿ deserve what they get, but also fear that the killer is so knowledgeable he has to be an insider, but who went over the edge. The story line is action packed gripping the audience into wondering who the killer could be. Though the romance takes a back seat to the investigation, fans will appreciate this thriller while watching for future novels from Karen Rose........................ Harriet klausner

Karen Rose is fast becoming one of my very favorite romance suspense authors. This book is the third in the series and I loved it. Enjoyed the characters and story. It was a page turner. Can't wait to read the others.

Karen sure knows how to write suspense. I love trying to solve the who-dun-it’s. Karen’s stories are deeply engrossing and very hard to put down. She is a methodical plotter and a brilliant writer. A warning though, many of her stories do address adult themes much like an episode of Law & Order: SVU that some readers may have a difficult time reading. I didn’t like this book as much as I did the first two, but it was still exhilarating! I love Abe and Kristen and their struggles to solve the case and put past demons aside, learning to love again. The mystery was brilliant! I thought I knew who the bad guy was but the author’s misdirection’s had me second-guessing my conclusions at every turn! Another great read from Karen Rose!
