🌺 π‘π„π•πˆπ„π– 🌺 'Nightwatching' by Tracy Sierra ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

A mother is forced to the breaking point when her life and the lives of her children are threatened by an intruder

Home alone with her young children during a blizzard, a mother tucks her son back into bed in the middle of the night. She hears a noise—old houses are always making some kind of noise. But this sound is disturbingly familiar: it’s the tread of footsteps, unusually heavy and slow, coming up the stairs.

She sees the figure of a man appear down the hallway, shrouded in the shadows. Terrified, she quietly wakes her children and hustles them into the oldest part of the house, a tiny, secret room concealed behind a wall. There they hide as the man searches for them, trying to tempt the children out with promises and scare the mother into surrender.

In the suffocating darkness, the mother struggles to remain calm, to plan. Should she search for a weapon or attempt escape? But then she catches another glimpse of him. That face. That voice. And at once she knows her situation is even more dire than she’d feared, because she knows exactly who he is—and what he wants.
My Review
Is a full length thriller/suspense book by new to me author Tracy Sierra.

So by wanting to switch it up a little bit by trying something completely different that I wouldn't normally gravitate towards I stumbled across this, I liked the sound of the blurb, had no idea what I was getting myself into but I was so glad I took that plunge and purchased this.

After starting this and getting absorbed in the story the hairs on my arms stood to attention, my heart rate spiked, the narrative was so unique to what I’ve ever read before. It appeared messy with the musings of a lone woman trying her best to protect her two young children, going over in her mind if she'd done something wrong, overthinking about past events, I'm not going to lie, it did take a wee bit to get used to, but I don't think the book would've worked any other way, it all just worked (if that makes sense).

A mother alone with her two young children (8 & 5) in a secluded house on a vast property, with the nearest neighbours half a mile away with a snow storm raging outside. As she was resettling down her wee boy after a nightmare had awoken him and as she was making her way back to bed, she heard the noise that a step makes on a creaking floorboard. 
Creeping up the staircase.

My heart stopped..

She knew this old house like the back of her hand and that was her saving grace. She knew what the house sounded like as it settled down at night, the creaks and groans it made.

She knew where not to step because of that floorboard, she also knew where to hide, but that fear that the intruder would hear them was terrifying.

My thought process was all over the place, you start to overthink, over analyse, was she psychotic, an overactive imagination, sleep deprived? 

Because when it's all said and done and help came to the rescue, 
But trust in this author and get taken on a scary nail biting unputdownable read.

The worst thing for me is that I started this late at night in bed, I don't have children, but it made me think where would I hide if an intruder broke in if my partner was working late, would my small dog keep quiet and not make a noise. So yes I scared myself shitless!! lol
