Book Review for Everyone Is Watching by Heather Gudenkauf

 Everyone Is Watching by Heather Gudenkauf

Published March 26, 2024 by Park Row

Genre:   Mystery Thriller

Taken from Goodreads:
 The Best Friend. The Confidant. The Senator. The Boyfriend. The Executive.

Five contestants have been chosen to compete for ten million dollars on the game show One Lucky Winner. The catch? None of them knows what (or who) to expect, and it will be live streamed all over the world. Completely secluded in an estate in Northern California, with strict instructions not to leave the property and zero contact with the outside world, the competitors start to feel a little too isolated.

When long-kept secrets begin to rise to the surface, the contestants realize this is no longer just a reality show—someone is out for blood. And the game can’t end until the world knows who the contestants really are…


My Thoughts:  Who does not need 10 million dollars?   Going on a game show that you know nothing about to win it, seems like a good idea. 

From the very first page I knew something would be off about this game show.   Never did I imagine it would go as it did.  I was riveted to the page to see what the next challenge would be. The challenges were unique but they were dangerous, 10 million dollars is a good reason to do whatever necessary to win.

Everyone is Watching is a fun thriller.   There were never any big aha moments for me.   I found the book to be easy to read and entertaining.
