Review: Follow Me by Kathleen Barber


Release date: February 25, 2020

Publisher: Gallery

Genre: Mystery/Thriller


Everyone wants new followers…until they follow you home.

Audrey Miller has an enviable new job at the Smithsonian, a body by reformer Pilates, an apartment door with a broken lock, and hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to bear witness to it all. Having just moved to Washington, DC, Audrey busies herself impressing her new boss, interacting with her online fan base, and staving off a creepy upstairs neighbor with the help of the only two people she knows in town: an ex-boyfriend she can’t stay away from and a sorority sister with a high-powered job and a mysterious past.

But Audrey’s faulty door may be the least of her security concerns. Unbeknownst to her, her move has brought her within striking distance of someone who’s obsessively followed her social media presence for years—from her first WordPress blog to her most recent Instagram Story. No longer content to simply follow her carefully curated life from a distance, he consults the dark web for advice on how to make Audrey his and his alone. In his quest to win her heart, nothing is off-limits—and nothing is private.


Where are my You fans at?! If you like creepy and unsettling stalker stories you have GOT to read this one! Have you ever thought about exactly what you share on social media? Most of us post somewhere online daily, but have you ever really thought about the dangers of over sharing online? Or the fact that if any of youraccounts are public you have no idea who may really be watching your every move? CREEPY AF I told you! If this book doesn’t make you think about your own online presence I don’t know what will. 

The whole story has a really menacing vibe and you hear from Audrey, her best friend Cat and Him, her obsessed stalker. The chapters from Him were chilling, I always love getting a glimpse inside the mind of someone who is disturbing and this guy was terrifying. People beingwatched never fails to scare the shit out of me and Barber did an amazing job of bringing that fear to life. This is definitely another page turner from the author and only solidifies her place on my list of must read authors! 

Overall rating: 5/5

Thanks to the publisher for my review copy.
