Tess has a bad habit. She can’t stop snooping through her guests' belongings . . . When Tess is forced to rent out her late sister’s old room to pay the bills, the urge to rummage through her guests’ belongings overtakes her every thought. Teasing herself with forbidden glimpses into the lives of strangers is a momentary thrill, but it’s the closest she’s felt to anyone since the mysterious death of her sister, Rosie. After her newest lodger, Arran, takes the room, Tess finds his salaciously detailed diary, which chronicles his infatuation with a beautiful stranger. The diary, which appears harmless at first, slowly takes a darker, more menacing tone with each new entry. Is this a crush or an obsession? Her compulsion to know the truth leads to Tess shadowing Arran through the streets of London, hoping to catch a glimpse of this unnamed woman. And as she continues to peruse his diary, she can’t help but notice the similarities between the woman on the pages and herself, leaving her to wonder, Who has truly been watching whom?

'Sylva skillfully illustrates an unmoored character completely consumed by a spiraling, unrelenting grief' – Kirkus Reviews 'This story is taut and unsettling with a brilliant ending!' – Candis 'Creepily claustrophobic' – New York Times Book Review ___________ Careful what you look for. Careful what you find. After the mysterious death of her beloved sister, Tess is grief-stricken and lonely. She's forced to BnB Rosie's old room to pay the bills. With strangers in her home, Tess discovers a distraction: their possessions. Tempted into the room while they're out, she goes through her guests' things, imagining the stories they hold. These forbidden glimpses into their lives and the chance of being caught are a momentary thrill – the only thing she can feel through the numbing pain of her loss, and the so-far fruitless police investigation. When handsome and inscrutable Arran takes the room, Tess finds his diary. The entries are about an unnamed woman. Crush or obsession? Slowly, his writing takes a darker tone, and Tess can't stop reading. In her compulsion to know, to uncover the truth, there's something Tess fails to notice. She's being watched. Everyone has their secrets. This one is closer to home.
