    Three strikes and I am out.Three times I have been intrigued enough by other's reviews only to walk the same path to the same outcome.Always an interesting premise, always a well-written story and then either a crappy literary device to wrap things up or in this case the MOST predictable of endings. I kept telling myself it was a red herring, NO WAY were we going where it seemed like we were going, and then? "Hello!!! We're here!!"I am just not t...

    4 - 5 stars I really enjoyed this book and had it not been for some reservations about the ending I would have given it 5 stars. The story was intriguing from the start as the truth gradually emerged over who and why Alice was being stalked. The author captured well the range of emotions that victims would go through as the threats to Alice escalated and her sense of paranoia and suspicion grew of those around her, as she felt increasingly vulner...

    This book is a delightfully creepy mystery. Alice is a reporter for the local weekly newspaper. First she gets a threatening phone call, then an odd “gift”. Every Wednesday something even more intimidating occurs. Whoever this stalker is, he knows a lot about her personal life. The police aren’t much help. She even hires a PI, Matthew Hill, to help guard her. The book moves quickly and the author maintains a good sense of tension. But Alice...

    “I Will Make You Pay” is a creepy mystery. A stalker who pursues and taunts his prey every Wednesday. Why is Wednesday so special?It’s told from varied POV’s, during several timelines. I was drawn in immediately by the first chilling phone call Alice received from her stalker.The writing was enjoyable and the summary was intriguing. We were given plenty of suspects to keep us wondering....Who is it? I never narrowed down my list to predi...

    There's an insurance commercial that makes me laugh when I see it. It's on the set of a scary movie and girls are screaming and running toward the bad guy. A voice says, "If you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions." Isn't that the truth! Anyway, as I began I'll Make You Pay I had flashes of that commercial when I found myself talking to my ipad, "What are you doing??" and "Don't do that!"Alice is a journalist and she is passionate about...

    Time was when extreme emotional distress to me meant not being able to have my morning coffee - you know, that stuff that magically turns you into something close to human - before heading out to get my annual blood test that requires fasting. But reading as many books as I have (75 so far this year), I've found something else: realizing it's 5 minutes before bedtime and I need 20 more to finish the book that's got me on the edge of my seat. This...

    I Will Make You Pay is a thriller about a journalist named Alice that starts receiving threatening calls and gifts on Wednesdays. I’ve been trying to branch out my reading a little more because I’ve been feeling a little burned out on SFF these days, but this book made me remember why I don’t read thrillers often.The thing is, I think in order for a thriller to work you have to care about or connect with the character to some degree (to cre...

    When I saw the title and read the synopsis, I envisioned a series of sinister, frightening, and chilling events. I went into the story with expectations of a fast-paced thriller, which would have me on the edge of my seat and create a feeling of fear for the characters involved. Alas, I experienced none of these feelings. Instead, I got a slow moving mystery, which kept me guessing, minus the thrills and suspense.The story began on an exciting no...

    I Will Make You Pay is an edge of your seat mystery that keeps the reader guessing from the beginning. The book is wonderfully written and the descriptive style paints a picture that is both dark and eerie. Nothing is quite as it seems in this one and the twists just keep coming. There is something sinister about this cat and mouse game. With so many questions throughout the story, it is impossible to give details without spoilers, but I will say...

    Right from the first page, “I Will Make You Pay” weaves suspense and mystery themes in a tight web, pulling you into the book. The story is primarily told by Alice, who shares the spotlight with a private detective (Matthew) and the person stalking Alice. There is plenty of time spent allowing readers to get to know these three characters, and we learn their good and bad points as well as the motivations for their actions.Author Teresa Drisco...

    For full review - The Limit of Books Does Not ExistI Will Make You Pay is a slow burn mystery that still caught me off guard at the end. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the novel and I was pleasantly surprised with the result.Alice is a journalist and if you have read my past reviews, you know that I’m not a fan of journalists as main characters. I did like Alice even though she has made some questionable choices, both in present day ...

    So, this book took me awhile to read...and normally, that's a bad thing. This time, though, it was my obsession with playing 'The Oregon Trail' with my daughter that caused the delay. This is the fourth Teresa Driscoll novel I've read, and I'd say it falls somewhere in the middle--not as good as I Am Watching You, but far better than The Friend and The Promise. I truly enjoyed the beginning of this story, but it quickly became bogged down with to...

    3.5 stars rounded upLet me preface this review by saying that as a journalist I knew I was either going to love this or hate it. That said, I felt neither. And I think that's a good thing. Because if you can write a book about a writer without offending real-life writers the chances are you've got something there.Alice is a small-town journalist who has a couple of weird coincidences that together add up to a stalking situation that escalates eac...

    3.5 stars rounded up.I Will Make You Pay is a light thriller about a woman whose life’s turned upside down after receiving a threatening phone call. The story is well-paced and the characters are well developed, especially within the Him parts - where my interest mainly lay. I liked the writing and the police procedural aspect, which helped the storyline to run smoothly.There were a few shocks I absolutely hadn't seen coming. I didn’t find th...
