I really had fun with this book. I had a quiet week with only myself and one other family member. (This situation will cease to be in about 3 hours, bummer). This was sublime, peaceful and quite indulgent, to be honest! This was also how I felt about reading this psychological thriller. So I was a happy gal!

I loved the splattering of red herrings, little things to put me off/confuse/mix me up.. all nicely placed little occurrences and characters to keep me questioning things. It was fun!

My e-libraries have declared this book to be the Big Library Read. Your library may have declared this too. This doesn't look like the kind of book I'd normally check out, but this year I'm intentionally reading things I wouldn't normally read, so ... here goes ... (I'll start as soon as my loan of The God Delusion expires, in 7 days ....)

Well, this book and I are getting off on the wrong foot, so to speak, because the opening sentences encapsulate all that I loathe about chick lit.

review to follow.

Eyes between is was an interesting read. Robin works in television. She has her own show and a book due to come out. She is on top of the world.

Until someone decides she shouldn't be.

It starts with small pranks but quickly escalates into major threats and even bodily harm. Robin has no idea who is doing this to her but she has a few ideas. Unfortunetly she is not being taken as seriously as she would like.

This was a nasty "who done it" that I moderately enjoyed. I have seen one

**Originally posted on Bookish Wanderlove.**

Opening Lines
“The shoes had made a nasty dent in my paycheck, but I wasn’t sorry I’d splurged. They were Chanel, black-textured with a peep toe and a gold zipper up the back, really more of a booty than a stiletto. And not what you’d ever call “Fuck me” shoes-there was nothing about them that would make a guy want to bed you, unless he was the type who liked a razor-sharp heel at his throat.”

I've read the first three Bailey Weggins books, and I feel about this stand-alone the way I do about those. I want to like Kate White's books better than I do. They are fast reads; the settings and their peripheral details interest me (magazines, publishing, television, affluent New York, fashion, Society doings); and once I've started the book I have to keep reading to find out what happened. But I can't tell if I actually like the books or enjoy reading them, so it's hard for me to recommend t ...more

I have been a fan of Kate White's books since reading Hush and The Sixes.This one certainly did not disappoint.

Robin is on top of the world. She's written a book that's heading for the Top Ten and she's co-anchor of a prospering TV show. But things are starting to fall part. First there's the note stuffed in her purse calling her a not-so-nice name. Then there' the cockroach in her coffee, which I actually thought was worse than the Barbie Doll left for her with the eyes gouged out.

And until the

Two and a half stars.
Divorce and losing her on air career has left Robin Trainer vulnerable. As a result she feels she must work harder and be better to maintain her role as co-host of a nightly entertainment show. As well she has written a book with sales that have started to take off, so it all seems to be finally going well for her. That is, until things start to go wrong. At first it’s little things but over time the nasty incidents escalate. Until eventually more than her career is at stake

Eyes On You by Kate White is a 2014 Harper publication.

This book is a part of a “Big Library Read” promotion and so I decided to play along and check this one out with my Overdrive account.

This one starts off strong with the lead character, Robin Trainer, a co-host on a television news magazine show, celebrating her new book, and really feeling her stride, until it becomes apparent that someone wants her out as the host of the TV show and will resort to all manner of cunning to get their way.

I received an uncorrected proof copy of this book from HarperCollins.

Eyes On You covers the span of about three weeks in the life of rising television host Robin Trainer, who seems to have an enemy that is stalking and sabotaging her work and career. Beginning with an aggressive note found in her purse, the events escalate to Robin finding a Barbie doll in her office with the eyes slashed out and having her face chemically burned when her set makeup is tampered with. Robin desperately seeks ans

Easy, fast summer read. A page turner that does not require a lot of focus. A little like Mary Higgins Clark' mysteries but with a little sex included, a few suspects and the big reveal at the end. I will read more books by Kate White this summer.

The word ‘sharp’ is always used when it comes to this amazing author’s writing, and this new roller-coaster thriller is no exception. In fact, like a great wine, it seems that Kate White’s writing is aging to perfection.

This tale surrounds a definite career woman working in a truly glamorous, not-to-mention, backbiting and mean – business. Robin Trainer has dealt with some pretty serious issues to re-enter that job market; from a divorce that practically annihilated her to losing her on-air job

Robin Trainer is back at her on-air job as a co-host, after a two-year hiatus. Ratings are climbing and a book she has written is turning into a bestseller.

But a dark and malevolent presence is threatening her very existence, not to mention her career. It is obviously someone she works with, because of the nature and timing of the incidents, but just when she thinks she has figured it out, her bosses turn against her with a startling decision.

How can Robin find out who has been destroying her li

I was so close to giving this one star, but I finished it, didn't I?

This book was the equivalent of a terrible Lifetime movie. The plot is cheesy, the end of a chapter means a new bit of suspense, and each character was just unbelievable enough to keep you guessing. But hey, that's why we watch those dumb movies, right?

I wanted a quick and easy thriller and I kinda got one. I was happy to find out that the person I suspected the whole time was, indeed, the guilty party. If they had thrown it a d

This month, Eyes on You was featured as OverDrive's Big Library Read. The synopsis made it sound like a quick, suspenseful read and I decided to give it a try.

It was okay, but I wasn't hooked and aching to get back to the story. It's formulaic and somewhat predictable.

I have no idea how books are selected for The Big Library Read, but after reading this one, I'm hesitant to participate in future rounds.

This book a very good light mystery. I did not figure how "who done it" until the very end because there were clues during the story making you think different people were the one so it was a surprise to me and I did think it was some of the different people. So that part of it was a surprise which I enjoyed. Very quick read and interesting mystery. Good insight into tabloid type TV.

Ugh. I read this as part of my library's Big Read, and I don't know if I'm more mad at them for suckering me into this or at myself for slogging through to the end.

I've read a couple of White's Bailey Weggins novels, which are mostly dumb fun - quick summer beach reads where everyone's clothes are described in breathless detail and everyone's hair is artfully tousled - so it's not like I was expecting great literature, but this was so irritating.

Every woman but the heroine is evil, two-faced a

Eyes on You had me riveted. I literally gobbled 3/4th's of the book in one night and if I hadn't needed sleep I would've finished it all. I don't often fly through a book in one night but this was an easy breezy read and I was definitely in the mood for it, which helps a lot.

There's not that particularly "special" about Eyes on You, it's the typical mystery - someone is stalking Robin the main character who is a co-anchor on a show called The Pulse that deals with various celebrity issues, etc,

All eyes on you every night on your TV show can sometimes be hazardous to your health as Robin Trainer has found out.

Was someone jealous of Robin's success or was Robin imagining all the death threats and incidents happening to her at the TV station. Hate notes, voodoo dolls, poison-laced makeup, drug-laced brownies, what else can happen?

As you follow Robin through her days, you will feel her terror at thinking someone is following her or share her fear of wondering what is going to happen next.

I received a copy of Eyes on You by Kate White through Goodreads first-reads program in return for an honest review.

The book description gives a fine description of what the story is about so I won't repeat it here; but no one could have prepared me for the fast-paced, constantly twisting & turning, edge-of-your-seat, psychological suspense that I found inside. This is a book that's a quick-read because you'll find it difficult to put down!

This was chosen as our "Big Library Read" and I'm going to assume was picked by blindfolding a librarian and having her throw a dart at the Fiction section.

WHY??

First, we have our protagonist, who has THE NERVE to be career minded and have a desire to move ahead. We are told this is a bad thing over and over and over. Then we have not one but TWO female villains whose sole motive is that they are jealous. Oh, you know how females are!!! So those women terrorize our heroine, who is portrayed as a

i sort of love kate white books but i also recognize that they're all repetitive, pulpy trash.

do with that what you will.

here, the protagonist's voice (robin trainer!) is remarkably bailey weggins-esque. and the plot is also something vaguely bailey-esque - tv personality lives glamorous but lonely single life in new york after rebuilding her career after her messy-ish divorce! then, SOMEONE DOESN'T WANT HER TO SUCCEED!!!

and crazy shit happens...like cockroaches in coffee and ambien-laced browni

This was NOT a psychological thriller. This was more of a Hallmark chick lit mystery movie. I read so many glowing reviews, all about the twists and turns and who could believe who the culprit was??? Seriously? This wasn't the worst book I've read, but it wasn't what everyone cracked it up to be.

How is this a Big Library Read? I didn't like this book. I usually enjoy mysteries/thrillers but when Robin ripped up the threatening note in chapter one, surely I wasn't the only one to say "uh-oh, that's a bad idea, getting rid of evidence." (That's not really a spoiler since it's CHAPTER 1, and you get the gist of it in the book blurb). But she never got any smarter or more sensible from then on. Her obtuseness was a real obstacle to empathizing with Robin's plight or giving a damn what happe ...more
