The Memory Watcher

Book: The Memory Watcher
Author: Minka Kent

When Autumn Carpenter stumbles upon the social media account of the family who adopted her infant daughter years ago, she finds herself instantly drawn into their picture-perfect existence.

From behind a computer screen, Autumn watches Grace's every memory, from birthdays to holidays to bedtime snuggles. But what starts as an innocent fascination spirals into an addictive obsession met with a screeching halt the day the McMullen family closes their Instaface account without so much as a warning.

Frantic and desperate to reconnect with her daughter, Autumn applies for a nanny position with the McMullens, manipulating herself into Grace's life under false pretenses. And it's only then that Autumn discovers pictures lie, the perfect family doesn't exist, and beautiful people? They have the ugliest secrets.-Goodreads

Review: Overall I enjoyed this book about a young woman who is obsessed with her neighbors who adopted her infant daughter. The middle dragged a little but the ending was a twist I didn't see coming. One challenge with this book is that I have a daughter the same age as Grace and her dialogue and actions seemed like that of a younger child. I still liked it. 

Grade: 3/5
