Review of Watching Edie by Camilla Way

4 out of 5 stars

I came across this book after reading The Lies We Told and I’m so happy to say I’ve found a new favorite author.  This book had the perfect amount of suspense and thrills and what I originally thought would just be a psychological thriller turned into so much more.

This book is about Edie who at thirty-three finds herself alone and pregnant living in a crappy apartment and working as a waitress.  When she hears a knock at her door one day she comes face to face with someone she thought she’d never see again.  She thought she had left her past behind years ago but finds that it’s coming back for revenge.  After Edie has her baby she realizes she must finally pay for what she did and try to make things right.

I love how this book was told by two different women, Edie and Heather, and that it flipped back and forth between past and present.  It made the story a lot more interesting getting to hear both sides of the story instead of just being told from one point of view.  I loved both characters equally even though I was disgusted with both of them multiple times in the book.  Edie’s character had to finally pay for her mistakes at the end of the book and I’m glad that Heather finally got the help she needed, even if it was from an unusual source.

This book kept me guessing from the very beginning because I had no clue what was going to happen and the ending literally had me sitting on the edge of my seat dying to know what was going to happen.  I officially love Camilla Way and her writing styles and I can’t wait to read more by her.
