I just finished reading “Watch Out For Her” by Samantha Bailey. Thanks to Net Galley and Simon and Schuster Canada for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
There is a line in this book that kind of sums up what this story is about: ” Desperate people do desperate things. Not always on purpose. But sometimes.”
This is a book about imperfect people trying to do the right thing but often for the wrong reasons. It shows how humans can be so imperfect at times: making bad choices for what seem to be good reasons.
The book is about Sarah and her husband Daniel, who hire Holly to babysit their son Jacob. There is alot of mutual admiration and caring on everyone’s behalf but there is also secrets and lies, which ultimately leads to betrayal and loss.
The story is told from the perspective of the two female leads: Sarah and Holly. While both characters have their fine points, they are both guilty of making bad decisions in the book, which ultimately leads to an end to their relationship.
I really like that the setting for the story is Vancouver and Toronto. Nice to see Canadian content. I like the characters of Sarah, Holly and Daniel, but I loathed Holly’s parents and i thought her stepsister was a little weird.
I liked that the story went back and forth between two different perspectives which made it more interesting and engaging. And even though there were no big WOW moments, there was enough action and intrigue to keep me interested until the last page…and the ending was quite satisfying.
All in all, it was a good read…I have read this author’s first book and this is her second book. I am excited to read her next novel. It is sure to please.
