#Bookreview of WATCHING OVER THE WATCHER by Simone Beaudelaire

BLURB:

Psychic Selene Johansen is an excellent police investigator, able to determine guilt from the first handshake.

While her talent for fact-finding keeps her busy, her personal life is lonely. After all, who wants to date a girl who can read minds? But Selene’s consuming solitude dissolves when she learns longtime friend Brandon Price knows about her psychic gift… and her secret love for him.

As their relationship heats up, Selene dares let her guard down, not realizing that a ruthless stalker is determined to put an end to the couple’s passion – and their lives.

Amazon Bestseller in Paranormal Romance.

Contains graphic sex scenes and some strong language.

 

MY REVIEW:

I was kinda all over the board with this book.  Simone has written some amazing romance stories that I’ve given 5 stars too. But, sometimes she misses the mark.  She likes to write weak female characters, which is fine for some, just not for me, especially when the character is supposed to be strong. Like a police detective.

Other reviewers belabored the fact there was a 12 year age difference between Selene and Brandon. And that the romance happened too fast. My husband and I were 12 years apart and we also had a fast romance. We were together 30 years before he passed away. That’s where the age difference rears its ugly head.

As for the story itself, I’ve always wanted some type of paranormal ability. But, being able to read a person’s thoughts and feelings with just a touch would suck big time. So, yes, I felt for Selene. It may be a gift but a curse as well.

There is also a mystery entwined in the story. It’s not an edge of your seat type of thriller, but it kept my attention. Selene is being stalked, harassed and threatened. Is it someone she previously put behind bars? I did understand the perp’s motivation, but I thought he was missing some depth. He felt more like an add-on.

Between the mystery, the romance, and the interaction between Selene and her fellow cops, I found it an enjoyable read. I give it 4 feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
