Happy Tuesday Savvy Readers! I hope you had a relaxing Labour Day weekend because this week’s My Book Pledge Featured Read is a pulse-pounding thriller that is sure to set your heart racing! So without further ado, I present to you, When No One Is Watching by Alyssa Cole!
A suspenseful story that builds to an oh-so-satisfying conclusion, our story begins with Sydney Green. Sydney is Brooklyn born and raised, but her beloved neighbourhood seems to change every time she blinks. Condos are sprouting like weeds, FOR SALE signs are popping up overnight, and the neighbours she’s known her whole life are disappearing.
Desperate to hold onto her community’s past, Sydney channels her frustration into a walking tour with the help of a new arrival on the block, her neighbour Theo.
Soon enough, Sydney and Theo’s dive into the history of their neighbourhood has them descending into paranoia and fear. Their neighbours may not have moved away after all, and evidence is mounting that the push to revitalize the community may be more deadly than advertised…
A masterful blend of Rear Window and Get Out, Alyssa Cole‘s new thriller asks readers, when does coincidence become conspiracy? And where do people go when gentrification pushes them out?
