Book Review: Eyes on You

Sharon Long is here today reviewing Kate White's new book, Eyes on You. 

Eyes on You is a standalone novel written by former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan Magazine, Kate White.  Robin Trainer is a television host, who has fought her way back from a bad couple of years.  She has just recently published a bestselling book, is a co-host of a very successful evening television show and is getting her life back on track.  

Suddenly,  things start to go wrong.  At first just it's just a few small incidents  - a nasty note left in her purse at a book signing party, her book cover photo shredded.  But the incidents quickly accelerate and Robin gets injured. Someone is clearly out to get her.  And it looks like it may be a co-worker. 

The staff security for the TV station begins an investigation which ends in a very unlikely conclusion. With her career suddenly in jeopardy and not knowing who is behind it all, Robin gets a lawyer and starts looking for answers. She decides to befriend one of the newest senior producers, Alex, a former lawyer to help her unravel what is happening.  Throughout the book, we learn more about Robin's childhood issues with her stepmother as well as more details about her coworkers. Also along the line Robin has a brief relationship with Carter and a few meetings with her ex-husband. 

All of this leads to a dramatic conclusion which I found very satisfying as a reader.

I enjoyed learning more about the interworking of a TV studio/show and all of the ambition and greed which goes along with that. There are several very strong female characters including Robin, which I like.  I appreciate a good novel which has several possible culprits and the author keeps you guessing as to who the real one is.  This is my second Kate White novel and again the characters are extremely believable and likeable which I am assuming is the author's style. In addition to her easy, flowing writing style. I would definitely recommend Eyes on You to readers who like a novel which is psychological, suspenseful and does not disappoint.


  1. I love books that take you inside a profession you know very little about, yet find fascinating. It's a great way to get a peek inside while being entertained.

  2. Nice review.

    I enjoyed the TV information, but it wasn't a really gripping novel. I still would recommend it, though.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
