    I d just about given up on psychological thrillers, the ones I ve read lately being predictable, yet this one sounded like it could be intriguing, so I gave it a go Boy am I glad I did.We have divorced mum Rachel, caring for her two teenage children, whilst trying to keep her ex husband at arms length Rachel loves her children, but tends to cloister them, for Rachel is scared that something might happen to them Rachel is actually scared of EVERYTHING, for in her past, in a teenage game gone wrong, she shot and killed her own brother Or did she Now Rachel is getting mysterious texts seemingly from beyond the grave And she thinks someone is stalking her house Then, on the twentieth anniversary of her brothers death, one of the witnesses to his death is murdered Is there a connection If so why wait so long to get rid of the witness As Rachel desperately tries to find out, her increasing paranoia has her jumping out of her skin at every little bump in the night Or day At any time really And the truth Oh wow I found Paranoid to be an ingeniously twisty and turny thriller While I really didn t like our main character Rachel, I don t think I was meant to Sometimes I just wanted to slap her and tell her to loosen up I m sure her kids d...

    There are noises in the house, or are there There are footsteps on the stairs, or are there There are doors left cracked opened or were they ever closed There are feelings of someone watching you when no one is around There are chills running up your neck Why Are you really alone or is someone else around you who shouldn t be there Real vs the unreal PARANOID The book centers around divorced mother of two Rachel Ryder, her two teenaged children and her ex husband Cade Ryder with a slew of other characters that they went to high school with twenty years prior Rachel was accused of shooting her half brother when she was still in high school and she and the small town have never forgotten that fateful night The class reunion is being planned on the anniversary of brother Luke s death and now new murders are happening to people who were friends of Rachel and Luke which begins a state of Paranoia for everyone who were friends of the siblings on that fateful night.This was a very creepy and suspenseful story full of mystery, drama and a little romance I enjoyed the fast pace and there was excitement in every chapter ...

    2.5 stars Ugh, it s really hard to rate this one I m rounding it up to 3 stars, because maybe the stress of the house renovations are part of the reason of me not enjoying this that much It took me a while to get into it and the revelations weren t as exciting as I hoped, but my main issue was the kids OMG, those kids, they couldn t be stupider I don t think teenagers are like that, right I hate it when authors push the story through the stupidity of kids. it was not fun, I was so angry ...

    Is Rachel PARANOID Is her fear REAL or is it IRRATIONAL Most watch a scary movie and then hear every bump and squeak in the house and see shadows out the window And so a trauma that took place in the PAST can have an effect on ones life and the people around them Guilt haunts and keeps one from enjoying life and love Jackson wrote an intense crime drama that had me figuring out the mystery and then changing my mind the pages I read In depth characters and prose Not telling any READ THIS ...

    20 years ago some kids were playing paintball in an abandoned building with huge holes in the floor and no lights So they were pretty stupid Then Luke was shot for real and his sister or half sister as keeps getting pointed out for some strange reason is arrested for the death Somehow, she didn t know that she had a real gun And then the gun was gone and she was cleared The description makes it sound as if she is ostracized for the murder and getting away with it, but there is very little proof of that She seems to be involved in the community and living just fine.I started out wanting to know who had killed Luke Then I realize that I was pretty sure I knew and that I really didn t care Every character was a stereotype Most annoying were her kids Could there be any annoying and self centered kids than these two Maybe I got really lucky and had the two best teenagers in the world, but I do not know how these kids could think they could get away with talking to their mother this way or why they would even want to do so Every character had conversations with themselves with half of it being out loud as ...

    I was amazed to discover that I didn t write a review for this book And although I usually really love Lisa Jacksons books, I think the fact that I even had to re read a part of the book says something Yes, it is well written Yes, I can imagine the killing of a young boy leaves trails even twenty years later But what a strange story this is, with far too many characters A bunch of people that never left the small village, who all married e...

    A guilt left obvious A dead sibling Can a town ever truly move on from its bloody past This is the situation that Rachel is left with after being involved in stupid teenaged game that went horribly wrong Rachel fired the gun that inadvertently killed her half brother His dying face haunts her existence to this day twenty years on Guilt plagues her even though she was acquitted of the murder She believed she had taken his life but did she This is a story of Fear, loss and the complexity of human emotion As the story unfolded the reader was able to see that this wasn t a simple story Actions have concequences for all involved The story follows Rachel s life from frightened teenager to divorced woman with two children of her own and the fallout from that fateful night.Rachel is a complex character and I like that For this story it was right how in depth Rachel s character was She was ultimately flawed due to her experiences She is the result of experiencing a tragic event that has changed her for good Life would simply never be the same again for her She has the classic signs of PTSD post traumatic stress disorder She fears everything, her marriage broke down, she doesn t have any close friends possibly fearing she may lose them if she s truly close to them and she has her children on a very tight leash Her Daughter, Harper often states It s like a prison Her chara...
