I received a copy of this book from the publisher via netgalley for an honest review.

Holly crap…this was a great page turner for me.  First of all I don’t usually read anything that is scary but when it’s Bella Jewel I have to read it. If I thought 72 hours was dark and suspenseful wow did Bella crank it up a notch for The Watcher.

Marlie Jacobson was kidnapped and tortured several years ago. She was able to get away from her kidnapper.  Her mother capitalized on her nightmare and published a book tossing Marlie into the spotlight everywhere she went. Now her sister is missing only no one believes her when she says there is foul play involved.

Marlie hires Kenai Michelson a private investigator to help her find her sister. Even though he believes her sister is a runaway agrees to help find her.  To see Marlie and Kenai go on this cat vs mouse type of chase and see how they get to know each other was a great story.  Both have their past they are trying hard not to let the other in on. Marlie holds her past in and never truly told anyone what all she endured with The Watcher.

I loved Marlie she was a strong never give up type of woman. She was able to outsmart The Watcher overcome what she endured and was a stronger smarter woman for it. Kenai was so frustrating to me in the beginning I wasn’t sure if I was going to like him but in the end he won me over.  To see Kenai transform from the cold standoffish brooding man to one that was understanding and protective was amazing to see. This story took me on so may twist and turns just as you thought they were on to something there was something else that would be exposed that blew that thought out of the water. I have to say some of the scenes tested my gag reflexes and Marlie was a strong woman to be able to overcome all she endured.  All in all I have to say I cannot wait for another dark suspenseful mystery from Bella Jewel.
