Just finished this book and CL Taylor has done it again. A well written book, had me suspecting everyone and trusting no one.
The characters were well written and each had their qualities and flaws and I didn’t know who to trust.
Whilst I did t always agree with their actions I could understand why they did what they did.

Fantastic rea

The story centers around four friends who originally connected through an online support group for stalking victims. When the group and its members begin receiving threats, they band together in real life to uncover who wants them dead. The plot is filled with unexpected twists and turns, and I was particularly impressed by the surprising ending. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy psychological thrillers with unreliable narrators!

This is a first for me by the author and one I enjoyed and I would read more of their work. The book cover is eye-catching and appealing and would spark my interest if in a bookshop. Thank you to the author, publisher and Netgalley for this ARC.

Wow, the shocking climax of this story left me reeling. Reading about people who have had their lives destroyed by a stalker was always going to be a tense, emotive story but I could not have even imagined just how harrowing it would be. The author really evoked the terror felt by each of the victims, the feeling that they will never be safe while there stalker is out there. This made it all the more unthinkable when the facts and the identity of the person threatening the group came to light. You'll become so involved in this story that you will have to keep reminding yourself to breathe.

The opening chapter to 'Every Move You Make' was one of the most chilling openings to a book that I've read and was a great introduction to a book that's all about stalking and stalkers. Five stalking victims set up a self-help support group, comparing stories and encouraging each other to take small steps towards freedom. When one of their group is brutally killed by her stalker, the group members receive a message hinting that one of them will be next, and it will only be a matter of days.
The group decide to take matters into their own hands, wondering if they can find who is behind the threats, before its too late for them all?
Some marvellously twisted plot lines and devious story-telling made this a book that was impossible to put down.

The storyline itself was a fabulous twisty tale that kept you on the edge off your seat and had you casting suspicion at everyone.

Every Move You Make" by C.L. Taylor is a brilliantly crafted psychological thriller that manages to keep you at the edge of your seat from start to finish. As someone who appreciates a well-rounded narrative, I found the completeness of Taylor's plot deeply satisfying. The author skillfully tied up every loose end, including some I hadn't even noticed, leaving a sense of thorough fulfillment.

Taylor's ability to weave suspense is noteworthy. The story revolves around four individuals—Alex, Lucy, River, and Bridget—who are bound by their harrowing experiences with stalkers. This setup ensures a tense and engaging narrative, making it nearly impossible to predict the next turn. Each character's story is presented in dedicated chapters, which, although sometimes confusing, adds depth to the complex web of their lives intertwined by fear and suspicion.

What truly elevates the book is Taylor's nuanced portrayal of stalking, enriched by her personal insights shared in a note at the end. Her treatment of the theme is both sensitive and informed, allowing the psychological complexities of stalking to unfold without preaching.

The novel's pacing is well-calculated, with breathers strategically placed between revelations, giving readers a moment to ponder before plunging back into the thick of suspense. The twist at the end is as shocking as it is logical, capped with a touching scene that resonates long after the book is closed.

Although at times the plot requires a suspension of disbelief, and the multitude of characters can be overwhelming, "Every Move You Make" is a commendable thriller that combines emotion, suspense, and a poignant personal touch from the author. It's a definite recommend for those who enjoy a story that keeps guessing and the heart racing.

This book had me stressing! The first chapter started out with a bang, with our introduction to Natalie and the group of friends she had made over dealing with their trauma due to being stalked. There were a lot of characters, between the group of friends, their stalkers, and family members/significant others. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with who is who. There were several twists in this book and just when I thought I had figured things out, something change.

Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.

I was super excited to read Every Move you Make from author C.L. Taylor but for me I found it quite confusing and slightly rushed.

I love the authors' previous novels but this one was not for me.

We meet a group of 4 people, all who have come together as they all have a stalker. One of their members has recently been killed by her stalker and the group have had enough and want to take control of their lives.

Each chapter is told by a different member of the group as they set out and plan their taking their lives back. But I was confused as it was so quick moving and each character seemed to lack some depth for my liking.

I think the premise of this novel is just great but not for me at the present.

Thanks to Netgalley, the author and publisher for allowing me a copy of this novel.

Actually better than I had expected. There are a lot of characters and it took me a while to sort out who is who and what the connections are between the characters but once I had . There is a lot of suspense and the feelings of being stalked are well described . A twisty plot, though Bridget seemed to have different mindset than the others in the group. The stories are revealed as different chapters are told from the perspective of each of the 4 remaining members of the Whats app group. Some of the reasoning behinfd the stalking is weak, though I do believe that obsession can take over in such cases so that is perhaps irrelevant. Definately a book that gets you thinking about what could happen.

Loved this book. It gives you the horrifying fear and threats a stalker creates in people´s lives and how powerless it can make people feel and steps they sometimes have to take to escape the stalker.

Compulsive reading. Didn´t see who the stalker ended up being......powerful stuff.

Looking forward to the next book.

My thanks to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for giving me the opportunity to read an advanced digital copy in return for an honest review.

This was my first C.L Taylor book so I really didn’t know what to expect.

I was very intrigued when I read about the plot. The first half of this book was really good. It was a good pace, I enjoyed the characters and definitely had the creepy factor.
But it went completely off the rails in the second and I’m not sure if it was in a good way haha.

It was absolutely full of twists and turns and I had no guesses about the ending.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this ARC.

I really like this author. This book was realistic , something that could happen. I do particulary like a stalker book and especially one where I can feel all the emotions.

Five people have bonded and formed a support group for those who have survived stalking. They have made a promise to support and protect each other. Previously strangers, they are now bonded over terrible experiences they share.

The premise of this book was so different from the norm, and I truly enjoyed it. This book pulls you in right at the start, and develops in a way that keeps you entertained. Not sure who to trust, I was engrossed in knowing what was going to happen. There were twists and turns along the way that shocked me. The character development led to understanding of each character and their back story. Such a good book!

I have enjoyed booked by C.L Taylor before, so I was excited to read Every Move You Make. I loved the idea of it, based on stalkers, and although it had me wanting to read on, the ending didn't shock me as it has done in other thrillers. I enjoyed reading the story from all of the different characters point of view as hearing the different perspectives did keep you guessing. It was an easy, enjoyable read that I would recommend.

I can't imagine living with the idea of a stalker. Just the book freaked me out, so really living like that must be scary as hell. The book was very well written, and throughout you were surprised by twists and turns, and entertained until the very end! Highly recommended.

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve been backlogged with my ARC’s but have been working diligently to get caught up. I really enjoyed the premise of this book! The core of the story is four friends who met in an online stalking support group. When someone starts threatening the group and its members, they come together in real life to try to figure out who wants them dead. There were lots of twists and turns I never saw coming and I liked how the ending came about. I would recommend if you like psychological thrillers with unreliable narrators!
