Recommends it for: Suspense readers who like a little bit of romance
Shelves: 2008, books-i-own
This book was great, but more suspense than romance. Great twists and turns in the plot. Even though I was disappointed at the amount of 'romance' in the book. It kept me turning the pages. The villain at the end was a surprise till nearly 3/4 way into the book.

Mary Burton writes a good suspense.

This is my first Burton book and for sure will not be my last. Great mixture of romance and suspense. Cant wait to dig in to the second book in this series.
Lindsay O’Neil survived her father’s abuse. He killed her mother and then himself, but she managed to survive and begin a sheltered for battered women. But now someone calling himself ‘The Guardian’ is threatening that. He’s killing abusers in her name and sending her their severed hands. To complicate matters, her estranged husband Zach Kier is one of the lead detectives investigating the case.

She and Zach separated due to his alcoholism, fueled partly by his work as an undercover vice cop. Zac
Lindsay O’Neil has herself a guardian. He watches over her. Just to make sure Lindsay is aware that she is care for, her guardian leaves her presents in the form of murdered wife-beaters, with their left hands chopped off. The hands are then sent to Lindsay.

Lindsay’s estranged husband, detective Zack Kier is on the case. Zack has not seen Lindsay in about a year, though he is glad to see her again, he just wished it was under better circumstances. Lindsay and Zack team up to bring down her guar
I used to say that I’m not much of a reader when it comes to crime thrillers and mysteries, but I think I’m going to have to amend that. After reading I’m Watching You, I have officially become a fan of the genre.

While I’m Watching You doesn’t take huge strides away from what’s expected in the genre, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Burton provided some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming at all. Not only that, but she goes the extra step of giving you false leads as well, which mak
He's a stalker, but he means well, and that's why he calls himself "the Guardian". Sure, he installed video cameras in her house, but he respected her privacy at the same time. The bathroom & bedroom were off limits.

Sure he killed 1 or 2 abusive husbands and chopped off 1 of their hands. He meant well....honest. I didn't want to stop reading it, that's how good it was.
So far this is an excellent murder mystery I havent read one of these in quite a long time. This was VERY good I enjoyed this book
Paula  Phillips
Do you love a good stalker novel every now and again ? What about a novel that contains death and dead bodies and decapitated limbs ? For me every now and again, I love to read a crime novel that gets right in there . For me , it is hard to find a mystery novel that I love as I am quite picky but I have discovered a new author - Mary Burton and loved her book "I'm Watching You". There were two things I loved about this book - the first is the date the story started happened to be Monday July 7th ...more

This was a fairly typical crime thriller, I enjoyed it while I was reading it and I would read more by Mary Burton but I probably wouldn't re-read the book.

I thought Zack and Lindsay's relationship path was too predictable, I would have liked them to have slowly worked out their issues instead of overdramatising everything the other person did (though I suppose my way isn't as interesting for the masses!) Warwick and Zack's relationship was too antagonistic I thought - I didn't see how they coul

This book introduced me to Mary Burton, a very good author of thrillers. In this book, we meet Lidsay, a very dedicated director of a women's shelter. Her dedication at her work with abused women is linked to her past, and the fact that Lindsay 's mother has been murdered by her own father. But Lindsay has a protector, whose identity she ignores. This protector is eliminating all possible characters that are disrespectful to Lidsay, and Lidsay becomes a suspect for the police. The author describ ...more
This was the first book i read, written by Mary Burton. I was so entertained that I was unable to put this book down. From beginning to end there was so much excitement and suspense.
Lindsay was such a strong character, and with her background you could understand where she was coming from.
When bodies start showing up dead, and someone is sending Lindsay a hand of the deceased, with a note signed the Guardian..It is her estranged husband Zack with Warwick as Lead Investigator that is sent to inve

This was OK, I only read it because I needed a book title starting with

It was pretty standard romantic suspense. It reminded me very much of a book by another author, the alcoholic, the fiercely protective close family, especially the sister, the women's shelter...

Lindsay's mother was killed by her abusive father. Now she is running a safe home for battered women and their children. A mutilated body is found in the back yard and his had is delivered to Lindsay as a token from her "guardian".
This book is set in Richmond, VA, and I always get a little extra thrill when I read something that’s set in a place I am familiar with. It’s like I’m in on a secret. Beyond that, I thought this was a decent book, with the twist of an extra bad guy. I could have stood a little more...something...between Lindsay and Zack. Some stronger push and pull, some more spark, just something. I just didn’t feel the chemistry that was supposed to be between them, even when they were arguing. The relationshi ...more

This is about a woman who runs an abused women's and children's house, which she does because of something that happened in the past.
When somebody decides that to help her they need to kill the abusive men of the women she has helped, then send her gruesome messages to let her know she has a guardian, and that's what they call themselves.
When the first body is found a homiside detective is put on the case and he just happens to be her estranged husband.
They have to work out who the killer is as
Overall a compelling read. I thought the plot line was fantastic, not only is it interesting but it also raises domestic abuse awareness. Zack is a likable character, he's a good cop and he accepts his faults. I wish we'd gotten more details about his undercover work just to better understand his struggles and the failed marriage. Lindsey is a strong woman who dedicates her life to helping others as a way to escape her dark past, while a noble cause, I also find it flawed. She pushes others to m ...more
At one stage I thought everyone was a suspect! Some great, strong characters and a fantastic storyline. I can't wait to read some more Mary Burton books.
เป็นเล่มที่เต็มไปด้วยเลือด ๆ ๆ และมือที่ถูกตัด

เน้นที่ความรุนแรง ฆาตกรรม และ ความโรคจิต

เนื้อเรื่องหลัก จะเกี่ยวกับความรุนแรง และการทำร้ายภรรยาของสามีชั่วร้ายทั้งหลาย

ร้ายกับร้าย มาเจอกัน น่าจะค่อย ๆ ทรมาน
ค่อย ๆ ฆ่ามันให้ตายไปทีละนิด ๆ (เอ๊ะ นี่ฉันโรคจิตหรือเปล่า??)

สรุปว่าอ่านได้เพลิน ๆ + สะใจ ๆ ดี

Chrissi Mondovich
Mix between romance and suspense..good book.
Fantastic book, great storyline, kept you guessing with the twists and turns, brilliant
Nothing too exciting and it was pretty predictible. I figured out the mystery pretty early on. I will say the characters were definitely interesting and I will read her next book in this series just for that alone. I just hope the next one relays more chemistry between the two lead characters. I didn't feel there was any chemistry between Zach and Lindsey. If you like a good suspense novel, this will be good, but do not buy it if you want a good romance story as well - there really isn't one.
Great book. This is the first book I’ve read by Mary Burton. It was well written, fast paced and action packed. A hard to put down novel filled with lots of twists and turns, romance, mystery and suspense. I loved Ms. Burton’s style of writing. She kept me guessing throughout. It was packed with multiple stories but was balanced just right. I definitely will keep reading her novels.
Alice Alist
Lindsay O'Neil, she's definitely tough woman.
Her mom was killed by her abusive father, then her father committed suicide.
Always feeling insecure and lonely, left her husband when his drunk addiction can not be tolerate...
overprotective uncle try to become her guardian angel with killing all her enemies
Only complaint against this book would be how undeveloped the two main characters are. When a character is undeveloped (especially the main characters) you feel detached from them and you can't comprehend their actions. Although the storyline was unique, I still felt this book was mediocre.

MARY BURTON’s southern family has always enjoyed tall tales and a good yarns. Early on, MB realized that Story had tremendous power to inspire strong responses such fear, laughter, love and even sorrow. It didn’t matter if the tale was found in the pages of a book, spoken in hushed tones around a Girl Scout campfire, or spouted at an old fashioned southern family reunion.
