Emily is not sleeping well. Horrible nightmares in which a masked man is chasing her and then stabbing her with a knife lead to her waking up screaming. But then there's also the voice .. a man's voice that no one else can hear.

When she starts seeing the figure while at work, she worries that her nightmares are becoming a reality. Is she losing her sanity?

Desperate for answers, Emily struggles against the disbelief of everyone around her as she searches for a way to reclaim her life from her nig

In my opinion "can't you just get over it" is one of the most stupid and insensitive questions in the English language. I'm pretty certain there are many many people who have suffered terrible traumas or struggle to get through every day who would love to be able to get over it but unfortunately in reality it's just not that simple.

Night after night Emily's dreams are haunted by an expressionless figure who pursues her and stabs her just before she wakes up.

Her fear escalates when she starts see

My main thoughts were based on how long it took for Emily to actually see her doctors!

Emily has a fear of masks that escalates around Halloween. She also has awful nightmares that a man with a knife is preying on her. More so - she is "hearing voices". Initially she wonders if her boyfriend of a year, Mason, is behind this. She seems to sleep better when he is around and hears the voices less. As a working person, Emily is having trouble with her job due to the panic/anxiety attacks that follow

A fantastic insight into phobias and how badly it can affect people. Well written, thoroughly enjoyed this book

I really tried to enjoy this book, but it wasn’t for me. I couldn’t relate to the characters, especially the main character and her boyfriend, I just didn’t find them relatable. I know there are some who will love this book, I am just not one of them.

Thank you NetGalley, Catherine Blackmore and Rowanvale Books Ltd. for this advanced reader edition and hearing my honest review. Looking forward to reading more with you

I've really tried to get into this book. It sounded as if it would be a good read but I just can't get past how monumentally irritating the main character is!

I'm sure this will appeal to many readers, but sadly not for me. Thanks to Netgalley the publisher for letting me try to read this book!

My thoughts on ‘can’t you just get over it’

In general I’m not really a fan of what you could call this as a mystery/horror genre but I appreciate the troupes that Blackmore has utilised as it gives the narrative a sense of structure and cohesion. The questions surrounding this phobia are somewhat able to carry a sense of a guide throughout the story and was surprised by the ending as it reads as a more realistic ending instead of a big reveal. It does par in some places narratively, nearing the

I've always loved to write but when I lost my way, I started a degree in English and Creative Writing. Hoping this would help with my writing. I had an idea for a story but tried to put it at the back of my mind. However, taking this degree has opened the characters in my head and now the ideas just keep on coming.
