Following the death of her husband and unborn child, Charley Belington sells the family home and bravely starts life over again. On moving into a new flat, she is befriended by her landlady, Ella, who seems like the perfect friend and confidante.

But, unbeknown to Charley, Ella is fighting her own dark and dirty demons as the fallout from a horrific childhood sends her spiralling down into madness—and unspeakable obsessions.

As Ella’s mind splinters, her increasingly bizarre attentions make Charley uneasy. But with every step Charley tries to take to distance herself, Ella moves in a tightening lockstep with her, closer and closer and closer...

From bestselling author Mel Sherratt comes an intense psychological thriller - raw, sexually charged, and darkly claustrophobic, it grabs you by the back of the neck and never lets you go.

Review:

Watching Over You is a tense, erotic thriller with one of the most terrifying antagonists I’ve ever read. The worst terrors are always those that hide closest to home and Charley’s experiences–negotiating her path alone–will be familiar to many. She is as vulnerable as any of us, stronger than she realises, and yet still in mortal danger. Charley is my new best friend, and Ella a terrifying villain–outwardly ordinary and utterly unhinged. Watching Over You is the book you’ll wish you could read from behind a cushion.’ —Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner

‘Wow! I can’t remember the last time a book unsettled me quite this much. Just reading about Ella made me feel grubby – mentally and physically – and it’s testament to Mel’s skills that she achieved such a feat. And Ella isn’t the only creepy character in the book. I’m never leaving my lights on and my curtains open again. You just don’t know who’s watching...’ —Cally Taylor, author of The Accident

‘Sherratt is a unique voice in detective fiction.’ —Mail on Sunday

'Ella’s psychoses entranced me as I turned pages with the glee of a confirmed rubbernecker approaching a motorway pileup.' —CrimeSquad.com

'Watching Over You is an emotionally tense, captivating tale, brilliantly told.' —Kirsty Greenwood, author of Yours Truly

'Watching Over You is Mel’s best novel to date. The writing is tight and emotive in this unsettling story of inadequacy, jealousy and rage.' —Pamreader.blogspot.com

About the Author:

Mel Sherratt has been a self-described “meddler of words” ever since she can remember. After winning her first writing competition at the age of eleven, she has rarely been without a pen in her hand or her nose in a book. Since successfully publishing Taunting the Dead and seeing it soar to the rank of #1 bestselling police procedural in the Amazon Kindle store in 2012, Mel has gone on to write three more books in the critically acclaimed The Estate Series.

Mel has written feature articles for The Guardian, the Writers and Artists website, and Writers’ Forum magazine, to name just a few, and regularly speaks at conferences, events, and talks.

She lives in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, with her husband and her terrier, Dexter (named after the TV serial killer, with some help from her Twitter fans), and makes liberal use of her hometown as a backdrop for her writing.

Her website is www.melsherratt.co.uk and you can find her on Twitter at @writermels.
