Can’t Wait Wednesday : The People Watcher by Sam Lloyd


“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : The People Watcher by Sam Lloyd.  I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed (aka as loved and gushed extensively about) two books by this author: The Memory Wood and The Rising Tide  So, I’m very excited to see a new book on the horizon.  Here’s the description and cover (not sure if this is the final cover at this stage though.


‘I watch them because I think they need help.’

Mercy Lake likes to fix things. To fix people. Trapped inside during daylight hours, hostage to her phobias, she uses the cover of night to watch the people in her town. And if someone needs her help, she steps in – secretly and with compassion.

When Mercy meets Louis, her lonely, unusual life is suddenly filled with excitement. Because Louis likes intervening in other people’s lives too, only he prefers a more direct – even violent – approach. As they grow closer, Mercy is enchanted but frightened by his actions. How many lines is he willing to cross? And how much is he prepared to risk?

And then there’s Nadia. Nadia knows she’s being watched, even if the police think differently. But with her own secrets to protect, she’s not going to wait around for the watcher to make their move. She’s going to stop them dead.

‘Small acts of kindness are far less effective than fear’

Expected publication: June 2023
