Cover Reveal! Watching You by J.A. Schneider


A serial killer texts his victims first. A detective vows revenge. He comes after her.


This beauty is now available for Pre-Order, ready for its release date on the 25th of April.

I’ll be hosting a book tour post on the 26th of April, where the wonderful J.A. Schneider (seriously, she really is a lovely lady. I have no idea why she keeps brutally murdering women in her books) will be sharing a post entitled “A writer is always terrified” I haven’t read it yet either so I’m as intrigued as you are.

J.A. (Joyce Anne) Schneider is a former staffer at Newsweek Magazine, a wife, mom, and reading addict. She loves thrillers…which may seem odd, since she was once a major in French Literature – wonderful but sometimes heavy stuff. Now, for years, she has become increasingly fascinated with medicine, forensic science, and police procedure. She lives with her family in Connecticut, USA.


I’ve reviewed her two previous books on the Whispering Stories blog, which is a book reviewing website that offers all of the professional mod cons that I’m too lazy to learn and too cheap to pay for. I can’t recommend the site enough, not just because I contribute to it of course, but because there’s so much varied content to enjoy and more author interviews and guests posts than I could ever hope to wrangle. Incidentally, if you’d like to contribute to the Whispering Stories website, feel free to join the fun! (Stacey is also a lovely lady, and I have no knowledge of her brutally murdering women in books!)














What stands out the most for me about this series of book is the intelligence of the writing and the fact that the main character, Kerri Blasco, is a female detective who uses her professional training and natural intuition to solve cases, while still being very much a woman. She doesn’t become genderless in her role as a detective and, in fact, her intuitive nature is an asset to her work.

I can’t wait to share with you my thoughts on the latest book in the series but I’m not going to tease you any more – I’ll let you know what it’s like on the release date!

A serial killer texts his victims first. A detective vows revenge. He comes after her.
In the chill of an October night, Detective Kerri Blasco is called to a bizarre murder scene. Leda Winfield, a young volunteer for the homeless, has been shot. Her cell phone displays the frightening text, WATCHING YOU, and into her back, hideously pushed with a hat pin, is a note with the same awful message. Leda’s socialite family and friends insist that no one would have wanted to harm her, but Kerri isn’t convinced.
Until another random young woman is killed in the same way. Kerri and her team profile a monstrous killer who enjoys terrifying his victims before stalking and killing them. But how does he get their phone numbers?
Kerri soon finds that the killer is after her, too, and that the key to finding him may just be in the homeless shelter. When the body count rises, she vows to stop the madman – even if it means battling her own personal trauma, risking her job, her love relationship with her boss Alex Brand, and her life.
