Although I See You by Clare Mackintosh ($26.00, Berkley) is not nearly as bad as The Nightingale, which I discussed in April, I must pan it. Really pan it. I reviewed her first book, I Let You Go and found it both different and an exciting read. I can’t say the same about I See You.
I See You centers on two female characters. Zoe Walker is recently divorced, living with a boyfriend and her two children, a son twenty-two and a daughter nineteen. She has a total jerk for a boss but cannot quit her job because her live-in boyfriend is only marginally employed. Her former husband apparently cheated on her once but is still in love with her and the kids heartily wish he was back in the house instead of the boyfriend. So did I.
