He is watching her…
The chillingly brilliant read from Mark Edwards and Louise Voss, the bestselling authors of Catch Your Death.
Doesn’t love always feel this way?
Alex Parkinson is in love with his writing tutor, Siobhan. He has never loved anyone like this, but how can he convince Siobhan that they are meant to be together?
So Alex stalks her on Facebook and finds out where she lives, buys her presents using her own credit card and sends her messages telling her exactly what he wants to do to her. He breaks into her house, reads her diary and secretly listens to her while she takes a bath.
Isn’t that what all lovers do?
But when a love rival appears on the scene, Alex has to take drastic action, and soon a young woman lies dead after tumbling from the roof of her house. Now there is no-one standing in the way of Alex and his true love. But someone is watching Alex too and he is about to discover that there is a thin line between love – and hate…
‘I was gripped all the way – the ending is terrific.’ Peter James
‘A very clever, very pacy story that kept me guessing right to the end’ Elizabeth Haynes
‘An ingenious tale of stalking and its twisted repercussions. Took me in a very different direction from the one I'd been expecting.' Alex Marwood

Everything went downhill after Siobhan catches Alex hiding in her house however and the ending was unbelievably bad. It just went from bad to worse.
Siobhan started out as a fairly normal character however by the middle of the book she began making ridiculous decisions that no victim of stalking would ever make.
Alex starts off creepy and weird but then you end up feeling sorry for him after Siobhan starts acting like a nutter.
There is a ridiculous amount of fat shaming in this book which leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth and adds nothing to the story.
The relationship between Alex and his mother was an interesting subplot that sadly was never fully developed. Which makes me wonder why the authors included it in the first place.
Overall this book was disappointing and the ending was just terrible. I kept waiting for a twist or something to happen that would explain why the characters were behaving so illogically but nada.
I won’t read this book again and it’s such a shame as it could have been really great. I wish the two main characters hadn’t “switched roles” and that they had just stuck with Alex being the stalker as that would have been more gripping and interesting.
Wouldn’t recommend anyone waste their time with this rubbish.
I loved the first two I read including all the characters especially Pat Lennon but this book was terrible.
I really struggled to finish it which I did in the hope it would be worth my while, I'm sorry to say it wasn't with the two main protagonists being the most stupid unlikable characters that I have ever read about, this book has no redeeming qualities at all.
What I love about these books is how close to home many of the plots can be, most can be quite realistic and y not so far-fetched that you can't imagine it happening to someone in everyday life. That is sometimes where the chill factor comes in to play, thinking what if...
When Alex Parkinson joins a creative writing class, he soon realises that he and his tutor, Siobhan McGowan, are meant to be together. Alex will do anything to be with her. Like buying her designer clothes and lingerie...with her own credit card. Like breaking into her house and reading her diary. Like threatening her ex-boyfriend – and watching his love rival plummet from a rooftop.
But when Alex finally admits defeat and seeks solace elsewhere, Siobhan decides to take revenge. How dare he lose interest in her? He picked the wrong woman to stalk then just back off! As their lives begin to unravel and the past closes in, Alex and Siobhan embark on a collision course that threatens to destroy both themselves and everyone around them...
This is one of those plots where you are certain it's heading in a predicable manner and you know more or less how it might end up. But wait, this is a Voss and Edwards book therefore there is going to be a twist, or two or three and there is indeed. For me it's the twist in this book that really made it very interesting, it's unexpected and I love surprises.
I didn't find this as fast paced as some other books but the writing is solid and the plot keeps you well interested in what is going on. I found it clever how in this book my feelings about main characters fluctuated around, my first impressions were certainly not my last. This is a solid read that would entertain not only the fans but anybody new to their work.
4 stars from me for Killing Cupid!
Alex joins an evening class for writers and falls for his tutor. He is quickly obsessed and because we are sharing his thoughts and know what he is up to behind closed doors he comes across as a weird stalker.
Siobhan is the attractive tutor, and there is a dramatic confrontation as it dawns on her, who has been sending her expensive gifts.
Alex moves on with his life and no longer attends the writing classes. The Siobhan obsession cools down, as almost immediately he begins a relationship with Emily who is a friend of his housemate.
Now it is Siobhan who becomes obsessed with Alex. She misses the attention and finds herself getting jealous of his new girlfriend!
The story is told from both sides through their journals. I imagine that from the outside both of these unhinged people come across as perfectly sane, sensible and intelligent. It is only because we are reading their inner thoughts that we realise how dark and scary people can be.
I felt uncomfortable as I found myself actually empathising with Siobhan when Alex's attention diverted to his new girlfriend. Siobhan however is unable to control her inappropriate feelings, and it is her surprising actions that kept me reading.
This is one of those books that is quite hard to say to much about as I don't want to give anything away.
I actually quite liked Alex, no idea why as he is one very deluded individual stalking his tutor, but there was just something about him that made me take to him.
The story flicks between Alex and Siobhan his tutor so it gives the reader an insight into what it is like to be a stalker as well as being stalked.
Killing Cupid takes the whole stalking theme to a totally new level and I loved it. It makes for a gripping and intense ride that chills and thrills the reader. It really wasn't what I expected at all from the description which made it stand out so much more than other books with the same theme.
